California's favorite burger joint has come under fire after the restaurant donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party.

The news broke on Twitter with a post saying: 'In-N-Out added a new item to their secret menu' with a picture of the filing.
Now Twitter users are calling for a boycott of the popular fast-food chain, many refusing to support In-N-Out if they sponsor the GOP and the Trump administration as the state rolls towards midterm elections. 
However, this isn't the first time the burger joint has supported the Republican party.
In 2017 and 2016, In-N-Out gave $30,000 per year to the California GOP for general expenses, according to Los Angeles Magazine. 
'This information will be painful to many of you, and you may act on it, or not, as your conscience demands,' one user wrote.

'@innoutburger looks like my family and I will be boycotting your restaurants from now on. You donate to the @GOP, that means you stand with Trump and all his bigotry. #ShameOnYou! #BoycottInNOut' one protester warned.     
'Yo, In N Out could give the California GOP $30 MILLION in contributions and I'll still keep eating there. Republicans will never take back the state, no matter how many Double Doubles they sell,' another Twitter user echoed.

    3. There is no way any intelligent person can believe Bush the idiot masterminded 9/11. Any inside job had to be carried out by establishment members of both parties. People like Brennan, Mueller, Strozk, Page, Comey...all those people being defended by "democrats" once they are threatened.

  2. This isn't left vs right, this is right vs wrong. Unfortunately the majority of the Dems are on the side of the deep state without realizing it, as are some of the GOP. When the truth finally comes out I hope some of these haters on the left will realize that Trump is actually correct on most issues.
