“Crumb And Get It” Business Owner to Biden Visit: You’re Not Invited
This is hilarious… glad to see a small business owner stick to his principles. When the Biden advance team asked Chris McMurray if the Vice President could visit his cookie shop, he flatly refused! Here’s why:
“Very simply, ‘you didn’t build that’” McMurray said. “Speaking of small businesses and entrepreneurs all across this country and actually last night my wife was up all night. No sleep, she’s worked a full 24 hours.”
When “Crumb and Get It” said ‘no’, “River City Grill,” just around the corner, said ‘yes’ and has the pictures to prove it, and didn’t care about the politics.
C’mon! You gotta give it up to the guy! He could have gotten lots of press from the Biden visit, but instead took a stand for business!
Here’s the back story, we’re told that shortly after Crumb and Get It told Biden’s advance people ‘no’ — the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ”Thanks for standing up and saying ‘no’ — then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes.
McMurray said he’s hoping folks will understand he just didn’t want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesn’t agree with.
Wow, that’s harsh – even the Secret Service thanked him! Though, maybe they were just still stinging from the Colombian prostitute debacle. In any case, great job Chris! I hope he gets lots of business!!
Tell Chris you appreciate him sticking up to Joe Biden! “Like” his Facebook page!!
