It has not been Jack White‘s week..

After a rough night playing Detroit’s Fox Theatre the night before, a more morose than usual White threw out a dreary, droopy first pitch while in his hometown for the Tigers.

The online campaign urging Macy’s to Dump Trump is hitting the streets – billboard style.

On Saturday, a mobile billboard attached to a truck began circling Macy’s headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, as well as a nearby department store.

In New York, another mobile billboard began circling the company’s flagship store in Herald Square. The goal? Get Macy’s to cut ties with Donald Trump.

Dump Trump, a petition from the liberal group MoveOn (dot) org, has gained nearly 680,000 signatures since launching last month in a bid to get him fired.

The petition charges Trump with making “sexist” and “racially charged” comments, which organizers say are against Macy’s social responsibility policy.

Case in point: Trump’s election night Twitter tirade, in which he called America a sham democracy after President Obama’s win and urged a march on D.C.

Earlier case in point: Trump’s nonsense about Obama’s birth certificate.

“There is a gap between what Macy’s brand is and what Donald Trump’s brand is,” protest organizer Angelo Carusone tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The billboards feature photos of a classic Santa Claus next to an angry-looking Trump, as well as the words “Bring back the classic Macy’s. Dump Trump.”

The campaign is asking the retailer to stop carrying Trump’s line of clothing and fragrances and to stop using the billionaire real estate mogul in ads.

“Macy’s says they are a cut above the rest. They appeal to everyone’s nostalgia. They inject themselves into our culture and our holidays,” says Carusone.

“We don’t think [Trump] represents the values they espouse.”

Carusone hopes the billboards will make Macy’s and the public see Trump as a liability, not an asset, especially if accompanied by protests at Macy’s events.

If it’s working, the company has yet to admit as much yet.

Macy’s has stood by Trump, saying through a spokesman, “Macy’s marketing and merchandise offerings are not representative of any political position.”

NBC has also indicated it will stick with Trump as it prepares to launch another season of Celebrity Apprentice, which is apparently still on the air, in March.

AWESOME! Biggest Water Coaster In The World Opens in U.S.

SANTA CLAUS, Indiana. — A place called Holiday World located in a town named Santa Claus (no kidding!) has literally opened the flood gates to its latest record breaking thrill ride.

It’s called The Mammoth for good reason, it’s the world’s largest water coaster and if you want to ride on it you’ll have to live in or have plans to visit the hoosier state.

Never before have water tubes been this enormous and you wont go it alone, 6 others thrill seekers will encircle you for your wild ride down the tube. As far as capacity goes, this whopper of a water park can easily service 1100 riders per hour.

Dan Koch is president of Holiday World, so I guess that makes him Santa? Anyway, he said, “After we built The Wildebeest, we realized it was a huge success, it makes people crazy!” Dan went on to say that the closest thing size-wise to this monster is in The United Arab Emirates and that slide is only 70 percent as big.
