Please clap is never a good look
Huffpost: Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz hasn’t officially announced he’s running for president, but he’s already learning a sad truth about politics.
When you have to ask people to clap at your scripted applause lines, expect some blowback.
Schultz was speaking at Purdue University in Indiana on Thursday when he announced that he would release his tax returns if he decided to run for the nation’s highest office.
Clearly, his pledge was meant to draw a sharp contrast with the current White House occupant, Donald Trump. Still, the crowd reaction wasn’t what he probably expected. The clip below shows he had to let the audience know it was OK to clap.
