OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

The woke mob/Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd is at it again calling for a celebrity to be canceled because they don’t approve who he said hi to.

You know what that means. We have to support the celebrity because there are more of us and we can win.

Guy Fieri, the cooking show phenom who most of us know from his Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives series on the Food Network, attended an MMA event in Las Vegas over the weekend. Former President Donald Trump was also in attendance.

Fieri got a chance to say hi to Trump so he did and several photos of the exchange began circulating on social media. Those on the right cheered the meeting, those on the left lost their minds as they are known to do.

Those on the left are furious as evidenced from their screes on Twitter.

When the left calls for a boycott, we have to counter it by doing the opposite. Which in this case means watching Fieri’s shows on the Food Network, one which has new episodes weekly is Grocery Games.

The lady below says she is a former Republican.

“I have watched Guy Fieri for many years. I loved Dinner’s Drive In’s and Dives. My granny Ruby always said “you are known by the company you keep.” I now know who Guy Fieri is by the company he keeps. I will no longer watch any of his shows on The Food Network.”

Oddly enough, one well known Twitter leftist said the outrage was uncalled for.

Brian Krassenstein, a popular leftist, stated:

“The outrage directed at Guy Fieri that I see from people here on Twitter because he was seen standing next to Trump, is a bit ridiculous. Over 60 million Americans voted for Trump. Ostracizing anyone who is seen near him, voted for him or associates with him in any way, is the best way to ensure he is re-elected. I live in Florida. If I ostracized everyone who liked Trump i’d have few friends and half my business contacts. It’s one thing to not vote for the guy. It’s irrational though to treat those who did as lepers. Please stop with the irrational outrage.”

Of course, very few of his fellow Dem/leftists feel the same.

According to Newsweek, “Former president Donald Trump met with celebrities including TV presenter Guy Fieri and director Mel Gibson at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in Las Vegas. The interactions prompted mixed reactions online.”

The former president was met with cheers from the crowd and he high-fived fans when he stepped out into the T-Mobile Arena for UFC 290 on Saturday, July 8.

Trump continued to greet the crowd as he walked over to the analyst desk where he met with podcast host and UFC commentator Joe Rogan, as well as numerous other celebrities.

Photos of Fieri and Trump showed the two men conversing with one another close to the octagon where the fights take place.

The images of the pair meeting one another sparked strong reactions from fans of Trump and Fieri, who dubs himself the Mayor of Flavor Town.

Since the images were uploaded to social media, the photos attracted praise and scorn from supporters and detractors of the divisive former president.

Trump supporter, former columnist and chief creative officer at Turning Point USA Benny Johnson, tweeted: “Trump in Flavor Town.”

Everyone needs to stand up and support Fieri from being canceled.

The Independent reported, “UFC commentator and podcast host Joe Rogan was present and met with Mr Trump, but pictures of the former president conversing with celebrity chef Guy Fieri seemed to spur the most scorn and praise.”

Turning Point USA chief creative officer Benny Johnson, a Trump supporter, posted a picture of the two men to Twitter, referring in the caption to Fieri’s catchphrase: “Trump in Flavor Town”.

In the comments, Trump supporters were thrilled to see the two men together with one Twitter user saying: “My respect for flavortown and Guy Fieri has gone UP!”

Others said: “Guy isn’t afraid of the mob”, “I knew Guy had good judgment!” and “I knew Guy was one of a kind!!! But now he is on top of my list!!! MAGAFieri”.

Detractors of the twice-indicted, twice-impeached former president also didn’t hold back, with one writing: “He just ruined his reputation.”

“Literally one of the worst cooks out there hang with worst president ever,” another post read, while others riffed on variations that Mr Trump was “still going to jail”.

Fieri has rarely spoken about politics but he was praised for raising more than $21.5m in just seven weeks to help unemployed restaurant workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Also spotted chatting with the former president at the event were controversial Australian actor Mel Gibson, and Republican campaign strategist Roger Stone, who was pardoned by Mr Trump after being sentenced to prison in relation to a probe into 2016 election interference.
