It's time for drastic measures.

To get to Trump, you have to get to the FOX News Channel.

And it's simple: BOYCOTT THEIR SPONSORS. You don't have to watch those awful shows. You can still exercise your freedom to purchase otherwise and write to the manufacturers to let them know why you aren't buying their coffee or potato chips or pillows.

Reverse blacklist.

If we all do it, we have leverage.

3. The problem is, their sponsors don't care.

Even if they leave for a period of time due to something awful Fox does, they just come back when the outrage settles down.

8. Subaru advertises on Fox???

Guess I was right about hipsters all along. Dang.

And IHOP too? Well, that's cured my pancake addiction as of now.

See y'all for prayers at Waffle House on Sunday morning.
