Twittersphere activity during US Vice-Presidential Debate Side-Bar- Kraft Foods Denies Rumor That Kool Aid Brand is Set to Endorse Trump Campaign
Breaking News: (AdWeek) Senior marketing executives at Kraft Foods (NASDAQ:KRFT) are denying rumors that its iconic drink brand Kool Aid is set to endorse the Trump-Pence GOP Presidential run. A company spokesperson, who requested not to be quoted and did not have the authority to speak publicly stated, “We are only tangentially aware of the thousands of references to Kool Aid on Twitter during the Vice Presidential debate.” Added this individual, “..But, we can categorically state that we have not extended any brand ambassador role to Mike Pence, even if the ironic humor that it would propel our brand makes too much sense, hence PenceNoMakeSense.” That spokesperson further stated, “And, even if Donald Trump has helped to exponentially increase Kool Aid brand mind share according to Neilsen Ratings, we don’t comment on rumors and we do not generally make it a practice of supporting political campaigns.”
During the live-telecast debate, Trump running mate Mike Pence’s body language and narrative exhibited what Global Energy Balance Network founder Gregory Hand suggested was ” a potential over-consumption of Kool-Aid product.” Separately, NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced that his office has secured a search warrant that will enable the AG’s investigators to comb Trump Tower ‘inside and out’ to determine whether there is an unlawfully large cache of Kool Aid drink product warehoused in Donald Trump’s primary residence. Schneiderman spokesperson stated “We’re looking into whether anyone might be unlawfully stocking food supplies in an unlicensed facility, or whether the material is potentially of a toxic nature.”
#PenceNoMakeSense was retweeted 275,000 according to data revealed after anti-Russian Clinton campaign supporters purportedly hacked into Twitter CFO Anthony Noto’s twitter account. Via a new phishing attack scheme that took Noto by surprise, the hackers apparently put on their data mining hats and unveiled a trove information. Twitter Inc has since offered a reward to any hacker who can not only replicate the malware attack on their system, but to also help explain to management how they can monetize the data within their platform.
During the same 6 hour period, The Trump Foundation would not respond to questions as to whether the foundation would be restructured outside of New York State regulation and be used as a special purpose vehicle in which activist investors in favor of the Trump candidacy could acquire a stake in Kraft Foods Inc. Speculation that Donald Trump and his family members are thirsty to mount a phony take over bid in the same way a younger Donald Trump manipulated the shares of gaming company Bally Manufacturing shares.
Trump supporter (but not endorser) Carl Icahn, the billionaire hedge fund manager and activist investor who served as Trump’s mentor during the “Bally Balloon Burst”back in the late ’80s, stated “I taught him everything he knows when it comes to pump and dump!”
Immediately after Icahn tweeted those comments, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway denied Icahn’s assertion by tweeting: “Donald Trump has repeatedly stated that he knew about activist investing since well before Carl Icahn was born!” Conway then added a smile emoji to her subsequent tweet: “The correct phrase that best describes Mr. Trump’s superior business acumen is not “pump and dump” but #TrumpandDump [Hilary]!.”
