Taste Of MAGA: Anti-Trump Pizza Protest Doesn’t Deliver


Anger over a Trump flag displayed at Patio Pizza in New York was supposed to spark a boycott, instead the orders are rolling in.



News12 Long Island reports that pizza shop owner Guy Caligiuri claims his phones are ringing off the hook ever since President Trump tweeted about his restaurant. 

The post comes in the wake of controversy that arose from a "Keep America Great" flag hanging in the back of his restaurant. Caliguri says a customer told him they lost a customer over the flag, and the controversy propelled far enough to land him on a Fox Business segment.

"She didn't like it. She said you just lost a customer and I'm an administrator of a social mom's local page and I'm going to post this on and I'm going to put you out of business," he says.

Trump heard the news and on Thursday tweeted, "Support Patio Pizza and its wonderful owner, Guy Caligiuri, in St. James, Long Island (N.Y.). Great Pizza!!!"

Since the customers have been rolling in.

"The phones have been ringing off the hook, they haven't stopped ... I mean it's really humbling, its amazing," says Caligiuri.
