Twice-impeached, former president Donald Trump was pictured drinking what appears to be a bottle of his beloved Diet Coke despite calling on supporters to boycott the and over Georgia voting rights.
Trump was spotted with a bottle of his favorite soda sitting on his Mar-a-Lago desk in a tweet posted by his former adviser Stephen Miller.
It came just days after he called for a boycott of Major League Baseball, Coke and Delta Airlines, who have all protested the new restrictive voting rights law in the state.
“It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far! Boycott Major League Baseball (MLB), Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck,” Trump said in a statement.
Rep. Ted Lieu on Monday slammed Trump’s apparent hypocrisy in a tweet, writing: “Next November I’m going to fly to Atlanta on @Delta and hand out Diet Coke and @CocaCola to voters standing in line in Georgia. While wearing @Nike sneakers. It’s gonna be lit.”

The new Georiga law, recently signed by Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp, includes new identification requirements for absentee ballots, limits the use of drop boxes and criminalizes handing food or water to voters waiting in line.
