There's something to be said for knowing your audience. A couple of days ago I would have told you that aligning your company with the likes of Donald Trump would be a detrimental business decision, but a couple of days ago I thought that a vast majority of the country saw Donald Trump as a reality TV show host that was making a mockery of the election by actively sabotaging his own campaign. I guess what I am trying to say is that I don't think I am jumping to any ridiculous conclusions by stating that if there is enough support to make a known bigot a world leader then there's enough of a market to keep a company that sells comfortable, bland, cost efficient sneakers for the flatfooted and un-athletic well afloat. There will certainly be some of these people...
