A Pittsburgh coffee shop is brewing up backlash over a loyalty punch card featuring pictures of President Trump and other conservatives.

Black Forge Coffee House owner Nick Miller says the satiric cards are meant to express frustration with the system and nothing more. However, critics complain the punch holes make it look like the politicos have been shot in the forehead.

The subjects include Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and conservative pundits Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly....

I gotta go with Vet on this one. What a DUMB ####ING IDEA!!

I had vending machines in Staten Island, Brooklyn and Manhattan.

NO ONE knew my political affiliation or religious beliefs.

Because it had NOTHING TO DO WITH BUSINESS!

The Democrat Party’s hate is ludicrous

So I wonder if one of those jerks punches a conservative who fears for his life and puts a bullet into the perpetrator. Will the coffee shop be held liable?

Why anyone to the right of Che Guevara would want to give this fat hipster’s coffee shop their business is beyond me....probably hasn’t been within 100 yards of a real “punch” fight in his life.

I have a satiric suggestion...

Castrate ten liberal men and get a free steak dinner....

All said/suggested/joked about in the same way as this guy.

It is satire, right?

All I can say is, bring it, tough guy! Assault can bring about a pretty strong backlash. Like, say, 230 grains of copper-jacketed hardball at 900 feet/second.

Nobody needs a cup of free coffee when they have 2 or 3 45 caliber holes in their gut.

Oops - I read the headline without reading the rest of the story. So if there’s no actual punching involved, then there won’t be any actual shooting involved.

Kids playing stupid games.

Hey, it’s Pittsburgh. What do you expect?

Well heck, there isn’t a liberal Dem that could even be as good looking as these people are, that’s why they picked them...

Could you imagine Maxine Waters; Nancy Pelosi or the old bag herself??? YUCK nobody would buy that ugly crap!!!

“The Democrat Thug Party just keeps pushing and pushing...”

And if/when we push back it will leave a mark (to say the least).

Probably a good idea to keep repeating "No Homo" while doing this, so as to not confuse bystanders.
