There's a reason why Michael Jordon never goes political.
  He wants to sell his Air Jordons to everybody regardless of their political persuasion.  Which is why it's so stupid of Tom Ford or others in business to alienate half the country and shrink your own market share.     

Daily Mail reports the Wynn Las Vegas has removed all Tom Ford beauty products and eyewear from the resort after comments the designer made about Melania Trump.

Ford, 55, said during an appearance on The View in November that he would not be dressing Melania Trump while she was in the White House because his clothes are 'too expensive' for a first lady to wear, noting that in that position she would have to 'relate to everybody.'

Donald Trump responded this by telling Ainsley Earhardt on Fox & Friends that Melania never asked Tom Ford to dress her.
'Never asked Tom Ford, doesn't like Tom Ford, doesn't like his designs,' said Trump.

He then went on to say: 'Tom Ford is an example. "I will not dress the First Lady." He was never asked to dress - and Steve Wynn just called me and he said he thought it was so terrible what Tom Ford said, that he threw his clothing out of his Las Vegas hotel.

That was later confirmed by a spokesperson for Wynn Las Vegas, who told in statement: 'Wynn Las Vegas confirms it removed the Tom Ford line of cosmetics and sunglasses from the resort this past weekend.'
