If you know NASCAR, you know Camping World. The RV and an outdoor store is the entitlement sponsor of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
After Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis criticized President Trump for his handling of the Charlottesville protest and told fans who side with the President to stay out of his businesses, NASCAR legend Mark Martin quickly reversed course, pulled down a critical tweet and said he regretted putting it up.
That was fast.
Appearing on CNBC, Lemonis was asked to comment on corporate leaders stepping down from White House business councils over President Donald Trump’s remarks on the violence last weekend — for the record, Lemonis is no fan of Trump’s, according to BPR.
“There’s no doubt that there is probably not many consumers in this country today that is in favor of what has been said in the last couple days — and if they are, frankly, don’t shop at my business,” Lemonis said.
Camping World is the title sponsor of NASCAR’s truck racing series, and the comment prompted media reports claiming Lemonis told race fans who support Trump to shop elsewhere.
Things got even more heated when popular retired NASCAR driver Mark Martin took to Twitter to say: “First thing in the morning I will be canceling my order for 150,000$ RV I have ordered. Leave politics out of it.”
Martin would later delete the tweet after speaking with Lemonis, saying he regretted posting it.
“After a call from @marcuslemonis today regret my tweet yesterday. I believe many articles about his statement were misrepresented,” he tweeted.
The former driver then echoed a sentiment many Americans agree with, that he is “sick of the fighting in our country.”
Camping World CEO tells customers who agree with Trump not to shop there.
No problemo, el fascisti.

If that is a public corporation, If I were the board I would be looking for a new CEO.
Yet another liberal CEO that deserves early dismissal. So many companies run by leftist “politicians”, not business folk. That’s the problem in the country. Trump is a businessman than a politician. Left can’t take it.
President Trump WILL Make America Great Again, in spite of people trying to do him harm in one way or another.
