Former Celebrity Apprentice contestant and Trump supporter Erin Elmore is pushing back on the call for a SoulCycle boycott. She is calling out entertainment industry scolds as hypocritical. She vows to wear her red MAGA hat to a SoulCycle class.
What could possibly go wrong? Elmore specifically targeted remarks from model/cookbook author Chrissy Teigen (Mrs. John Legend) as a motivation for her response to the boycott called for by one-percenters on both coasts. She gave voice to what most of us have thought for a long time – why does anyone look to Teigen as an expert on anything except posing for cameras and maybe cooking? It is disturbing that the elites on the left look to her or any celebrity for that matter as a political sherpa, guiding others on what to think or not to think on any hot button issue. Remember back in April when Teigen and Legend were guests of Pelosi and Democrats at a retreat and given the opportunity to spout off on the topics of the day, but mostly to bash Trump? That was when I first noticed that Democrats actually give credibility to the opinions of the model and her singer husband.
But Elmore took exception to Tiegen’s boycott campaign, telling Fox News ‘Un-PC’ host Britt McHenry that the backlash against the gyms is, ‘driving me crazy.’
‘I go to SoulCycle every day and I want to lose my mind,’ Elmore said. ‘They preach to me every day, “Inclusion, inclusion, inclusion. This is a place for everybody,” and then someone raises money for Trump, they’re like, ‘That’s it. I quit”.’
She’s right, of course. It’s all fun and games and “inclusion” until someone voices support for a Republican or gives approval for conservative politics. For the angry left, inclusion, and tolerance of differing opinions is a one-way street.
‘[Teigen] goes online and says, “We should ban SoulCycle. We should boycott SoulCycle.” On the wall it says inclusion for everybody. That only means for Democrats, clearly,’ Elmore continued. ‘I’m going and wearing my MAGA hat. I’m just warning everybody now. Talk about getting beat up or doxxed. I’m on my way to that train station because, beep beep, here it comes. I am wearing my MAGA hat, to soul cycle, on Monday. Who’s coming with me? Who’s coming with me?!’
Elmore is a supporter of President Trump and was a campaign surrogate in 2016. She wrote an op-ed that was published in October 2016 in which she described her experience on the Celebrity Apprentice reality television show and took the opportunity to support him against personal attacks in the media. So, it’s not surprising that she is now pushing back on the hysterical left’s call for boycotting any business linked to a Trump friend or supporter.
Elmore is now a political strategist, lawyer, and Turning Point USA brand ambassador, according to her Instagram account. She was a contestant on season three of the Celebrity Apprentice.
The Democrats have failed so far to learn the lessons of 2016. When attacked, Trump punches back and his supporters rally to his defense. In the case of the SoulCycle boycott, the result is that the Trump campaign’s coffers are fuller than expected. The expected amount to be raised from the Friday fundraiser at Stephen Ross’s Hamptons house and a second fundraiser was $10 million but the total was $12 million. The second fundraiser was hosted by Rep. Lee Zeldin, Don Trump, Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
President Trump raised $12 million at two Hamptons fundraisers Friday, adding to the massive campaign warchest he’s amassing for his 2020 re-election campaign.
Trump retweeted Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who wrote: “Thanks to the unhinged mob on the left, @realDonaldTrump raised $12M today, $2M more than originally expected. The support for our President is unprecedented and growing!”
Maybe Elmore will carry through with wearing a MAGA hat to a SoulCycle class. She could have the hat with her and slip it on as a class starts and watch the reactions from her classmates. Captured on video, of course. That might be an entertaining bit of reality television on its own.
