A lot of people (online at least) are upset with Starbucks for doing away with their Christmas-themed cups.
Glenn offered his two cents to the conversation on radio Tuesday, saying people who really care about the issue should do more than simply complain about it online.
"Here's what you do, don't go to Starbucks anymore," Glenn said. "If this is what you really believe, then boycott Starbucks. I'm really tired of the, 'I'm just going to get online and raise a stink.' If you really believe that, please don't show me a picture of you outraged holding your cup of coffee that you just paid for at Starbucks."

. They have taken their Christmas cups, and they have made them just red instead of having any snowflakes or anything else. And everybody is saying that this is how they hate Christmas. I really don't care myself.
STU: When you say everybody, can you be more specific? Anybody? Are there people actually upset about this?
PAT: Apparently there are some.
GLENN: There are a lot of people upset. At least online, there's a lot of people upset. And that's my point. If you're really upset, then do something about it. Here's what you do, don't go to Starbucks anymore. Boycott Starbucks. If this is what you really believe, then boycott Starbucks. I'm really tired of the, "I'm just going to get online and raise a stink." If you really believe that, please don't show me a picture of you outraged holding your cup of coffee that you just paid for at Starbucks.
That's not doing anything. That's not doing anything.
PAT: Yeah, but I told them my name was Jesus, so they wrote it on a cup. So I got it.
So -- but let's also look at Starbucks and their history. I don't like Starbucks. I mean, we've already gone through this with the cups. And this is why people probably think they hate Christmas is because they've pretty much slapped you in the face repeatedly over the last year. Remember, this is the company that wanted to teach us, you know, exactly what race hatred was all about. And what was it they were putting on all their cups? They wanted to have a conversation, right?
GLENN: A conversation about race. Okay. So I think that's why people are jumping to the conclusion that they don't like Christmas. However, let's just remember that they have -- their best-selling coffee is something they call "the Christmas blend."
PAT: Uh-huh. And they sell it in their stores. They sell it in grocery stores.
GLENN: They sell it in their stores. If they have the Christmas blend, how could you possibly say they hate Christmas? Wouldn't they call that the winter blend?
PAT: Yeah. Solstice blend? The cold blend?
STU: You would think so. Unless they're trying to poison their people that buy the Christmas blend. Is it possible? Is it possible that everyone who drinks the Christmas blend will drop dead?
GLENN: Possible. Not probable, but it is possible, yes.
PAT: Meanwhile, Trump was firing everybody up yesterday.
GLENN: This is nuts.
PAT: Kind of crazy.
DONALD: Today I read -- and I have Starbucks -- they're my tenants. Did you read about Starbucks? No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks. No more.
PAT: This is perfect.
GLENN: Listen to this. This is amazing.
DONALD: I wouldn't buy -- hey, look, I'm speaking against myself. I have one of the most successful Starbucks in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don't know. Seriously. I don't care.
GLENN: Stop. Stop. That's the most incredible thing I've ever heard. Maybe we should -- I'm talking against myself. So he's made a statement. I'm talking against myself. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don't know. I don't care.
That's what I want from a president
PAT: Then why did you bring it up then? If you don't know or care, then why are you advertising that maybe we should boycott them if you don't care?
GLENN: Well, I'm saying something kind of similar, aren't I? I'm not going to boycott Starbucks, but if do care about this, then stop just taking pictures of yourself drinking their coffee, holding the cup that outrages you. Go to Dunkin' Donuts. Better coffee anyway.
