your restaurant has bad food why would he eat there?
Michael stinks! Will never go into his restaurant again! Seriously! What an ass! America is supposed to be "all in" ? He's a want to be anyway. (puke button)!!!
I'd like to think Michael's actions are protective of his usual customers. He knows the loudmouth, larger than life Trump would take over the restaurant with his entourage. It is unlikely that Trump will even spend time in any Cleveland establishment, hopefully because lightning will strike over the next three months and he will be eliminated from the political race! If Michael Symon is creeped out by Trump, imagine how the whole world will feel if he's elected. Help and save us all!
just to address CJMMJC....yep i am 1 of the right wingers as you call us about the change in restrooms..... .03% of the population is actually transgender....all the other's who claim transgender keep their biological plumbing....if you keep your biological plumbing...use the right damn bathroom....theres no need for a man to be in the bathroom or shower with females......pediphiles just got cover by this administration to use whatever bathroom or shower they want.....you want to change 100% to the other sex....i have no problem with you using the woman's bathroom or shower.....otherwise i will back you out of a woman's bathroom that i and other females are using........by the way don't go there with phobia......i'm a lesbian and a rape survivor.....so you can shut up.....
It's apparent all you Rump supporters are up in arms over Michael's comment. Of course you don't agree with him but he is entitled to his opinion and if he does not want Rump there with his psycho supporters he has a right to stop him from entering and causing possibly a scene....It could get ugly and with Rump involved it most likely would be.
Having a restaurant in Cleveland and turning down business. Sounds pretty smart to me.
Take notice that for every time you hit the like button on here. Immediately the dislike button gets a few added on as well..hmmm is Hillary keeping score here????. Cmon Tribe lets take it all the way and get Cleveland on the map again as the Cavs did! I know more about BBQ than this punk does. Born in Cleveland.,raised in the south since 6. Ill come back to Cleveland and open a BBQ place all is welcome! Ive got a special dish for killery. GO TRUMP!
Unreal - society holds an incredibly broad and pathetic hypocrisy today. For those that can recall last year, there was a family bakery that was forced to close its doors (forced by way of politically correct pressure) because they refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple - all in earnest, according to their belief. They didn't call the gay couple creeps, they didn't go on a radio show boasting about how or why they wouldn't serve them, they do anything of the sort other than to decline them service because of what they believed - their right to, correct?
So - riddle me this Mr. Symon, how on earth is it that you're not being persecuted or forced to close your doors because of your belief that Mr. Trump is by your claim 'creepy'? or even worse that you can deny service to anyone who YOU deem as creepy? Where does that criteria fall legally? How is it that you can so willingly and publically deny access to someone that you say is 'creepy' without any evidence of intent to cause harm to you or your business? - how politically incorrect and insensitive a statement is that? Where is the public outcry? Why aren't more people rushing to Mr. Trump's defense? Why didn't more people rush to that poor family's defense? Cowards, Phony's, and Frauds. . .that's why
Our country has been totally consumed by political correctness. It's a plague that is so embedded into our culture, our institutions, now quickly taking hold within the rule of law that it will take a miracle to reverse it. I'm sorry to those who have suffered, who have struggled, and who have perished as a result of political correctness. Mr. Symon - shame on you.
White people, or as you all call them "Nazis", very much intend on being in Cleveland.
Anti-Whites seem to take issue with that, GOOD
I've always liked Symons' restaurants. Pretty good food all around. This won't even phase his business one way or another. Mabels and all his other places are booked solid for the RNC and beyond
I think Trump supporters should all go in there to eat wearing their Trump hats and t-shirts and see what happens. You know, if he was banning even one gay, he'd be sued so fast, he'd lose his a*s. You cannot 'not' serve someone in the US anymore.
I truly like Mr Symon but WHAT WAS HE THINKING!! Banning Donald Trump because he "creeps me out?" In case he isnt aware, this is not only not right, it's illegal. Imagine if Mr, Symon barred homosexuals or transgender people or muslims because they "creep me out".
I say boycott not only Symon's restaurants, but The Chew and any other show he does till he reverses himself.
in case any of you have not listened to his comments, he stated that he has meet Trump on a few occasions,i'm guessing he has his reasons.....no more needed to be said. Idiots making this about politics go to hell!
Disapppointed in Michael Symon. Thought as a fellow Clevelander he would be welcoming to all. Really disappointed!! Will no longer watch him on The Chew, Food Network or visit any of his restaurants. So long Michael....
I'm so glad he told everyone, so everybody can stop going to his restaurant!
Now I know the answer. I couldn't believe what my husband was telling me about Michael Symon. I WAS A BIG FAN. IT WAS ON MY BUCKET LIST TO GO EATING IN ONE OF YOUR RESTAURANTS. NOW I CROSSED IT. KEEP COOKING. POLITICS IS A VERY SENSITIVE SUBJECT. IT'S VERY EASY TO TO LOSE WHAT YOU BUILT. AMERICAN PEOPLE WON'T FORGET IT. I AM VERY DESAPOINTED. YOU MAY HAVE TO WORK WITH THE VIEW WHICH I DON'T WATCH NO MORE. NOW I WON'T WATCH THE CHEW. MONEY IS GETTING TO YOUR HEAD.
So I guess in 6 months you won't have a business to worry about! Stupid, stupid, stupid. Not to worry, plenty of establishmen's would welcome our next President! Trump2016
Wow, you must not care if you lose business! Tell ya what, how about we boycott your place all together!! In 6 months you will be gone! Bye ass wipe! Trump 2016
Not a case of miscommunication; a case of stupidity....
I lived in the Cleveland area for 5 years and never heard of Michael Symon. Interesting way to learn about him by his views of other people rather than his food.
