Domino's Pizza 'Gets Political' After Former Republican Strategist Resurfaces 2012 Tweet

Jayson Derrick

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a 2012 tweet she prefers Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ) over rival Yum! Brands, Inc.'s (NYSE: YUM) Pizza Hut.

So why is this making news? Because it's 2020.

What Happened: McEnany not only prefers Domino's over Pizza Hut, but said in her 2012 tweet it is "wayyyy better than any NYC pizza."

First of all, no. As much as we all love Domino's, myself included, it's factually incorrect to say it is far superior to "any" NYC pizza. Maybe it's better than a few of the $1 slice joints, but I guess to each their own.

Surprisingly, this isn't the source of the Internet's outrage. Instead, the Internet is taking offense to Domino's for responding to the tweet with a simple thanks.

This is what the Internet is taking offense to. Former Republican strategist Rick Wilson is among the most high-profile individuals in the political sphere to comment on the preferred pizza joint of President Donald Trump's press secretary.

Domino's was quick to retort.

McEnamy reaffirmed her love for Domino's in a Monday tweet, but added she also loves Pizza Hut. Here is a selection of some of the more notable responses from Twitter users.
