So this is odd. And hilarious.
When Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz endorsed Hillary Clinton, Trumplings across the country unleashed their drooling outrage.
This week, they have taken to social media… and their local Starbucks… to get a taste of their “revenge.”
They are ordering their coffee, lattes, and other assorted caffeine-bombs by giving the name “Trump” to be scrawled across their cups.
I encourage everyone to get #Trump on their cup! Post a pic of it here on Twitter to @Starbucks with #Trumpcup https://t.co/vcwqWlPhTG

The move has inspired a social media hashtag: #TrumpCups.
The effort garnered more widespread attention this week after video of a Florida man yelling “I voted for Trump!” and berating a Starbucks worker made its way online and quickly went viral. The man, who called the barista “trash” and “garbage,” said in an interview with The Miami Herald. “She knew I was a Trump supporter and wouldn’t give me my coffee.”
On Friday, Twitter users were encouraging others to join in on the write-in effort.
It’s an awesome way to show Starbucks who’s boss, alright.
As one Twitter user pointed out:
Wow, the irony of millions of Trump supporters going to Starbucks and buying coffee to punish Starbucks. Unbelievable. #TrumpCup Go get ’em!

I am absolutely laughing at this, and now I need my iced caramel Frappuccino.
