Campbell Soup Executive Canned After Tweeting That George Soros Was Supporting Migrant Caravan

Washington Examiner

October 28, 2018 04:23 PM

[Too short to excerpt]

A top executive at Campbell Soup is no longer with the company after claiming that Democratic billionaire George Soros' foundation was supporting the migrant caravan en route to the southern U.S. border.

Kelly Johnston, who was vice president of government affairs, had her (sic) last day on Thursday, a Campbell's spokesperson confirmed.

Johnston was slated to depart in early November, but the timeline was sped up after his tweet that Soros' Open Society Foundations helped arrange for the caravan the "troop carriers and the rail cars taking them north."

"In the last few days, the company and Mr. Johnston have agreed that under the current circumstances it would be best to accelerate the timing of his departure," the spokesperson said.

Interim chief executive officer Keith McLoughlin wrote to Open Society's president Patrick Gaspard earlier in the week to say that Johnston's remarks "do not represent the position of Campbell and are inconsistent with how Campbell approaches public debate."

Fox Business on Sunday removed an episode of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" due to comments made by Judicial Watch official Chris Farrell that a "Soros-occupied State Department" was backing the caravan.

Campbell Soup Exec Out After Soros Conspiracy Theory Tweet

The San Diego Union-Tribune
KATE FELDMAN, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
October 28, 2018, 1:15 PM

Excerpt:

The Campbell Soup executive who tweeted a conspiracy theory about George Soros and the migrant caravan is no longer with the company.

Last week, Kelly Johnston, who previously served as the vice president of government affairs, tweeted that Soros’ Open Society Foundations had organized the migrant caravan of thousands of people traveling through Mexico toward the U.S. border.

“See those vans on the right? What you don’t see are the troop carriers and the rail cars taking them north,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “@OpenSociety planned and is executive this, including where they defecate. And they have an army of American immigration layers waiting at the border.”

Open Society, the organization founded by Soros that aims to “build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people,” denied any collaboration with the traveling group.

"Mr. Johnston, neither Mr. Soros nor Open Society is funding this effort. We are surprised to see a @CampbellSoupCo executive spreading false stories,” the organization tweeted Tuesday. “We do support the historic U.S. commitment to welcoming people fleeing oppression and violence in their homelands.”

At the time, Campbell Soup disavowed Johnston’s comments, saying his opinions “are his individual views and do not represent the position of Campbell Soup Company.”

Now, the company says it has decided to “accelerate” Johnston’s pre-planned departure.

“Mr. Johnston and the company discussed in August that he would transition out of his role with his departure scheduled for early November,” a spokesperson told the Daily News Sunday. “In the last few days, the company and Mr. Johnston agreed that under the current circumstances it would be best to accelerate the timing of his departure.”

Johnston’s last day at the company was Thursday.

In a letter to Open Society, Keith McLoughlin, Campbell’s interim president, apologized for Johnston’s tweet.

“Campbell believes in truth and transparency. We expect our leaders to present facts, to deal with objective truths and to exercise impeccable judgment. Unfortunately, our head of Government Affairs, Mr. Kelly Johnson, made comments on his personal Twitter account on Monday evening that speculate about the involvement of the Open Society organization’s role in the migrant caravan traveling through Mexico,” he wrote in the letter, acquired by The News.

“Mr. Johnston’s remarks do not represent the position of Campbell and are inconsistent with how Campbell approaches public debate.”

The migrant caravan has been a controversial topic of debate, as conservatives, including the President, have blamed Democrats for its existence.

“Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws!” he tweeted last week. “Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.”

That is the truth, the Open Society is paying money to the organizers of this invasion. So the truth is not what the company of Campbell's soup represents? Then I guess Campbell's will not be represented on my kitchen table. There are plenty of other options out there for soup.

Why, exactly, does a soup company have an Office of Government Affairs?

Campbell’s Soup VP Of Government Affairs On Tariffs: This Will Ultimately Harm Consumers

CBS Philly
By Rich Zeoli
March 13, 2018 at 3:53 pm

Excerpt:

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Kelly Johnston, the vice president of government affairs for the Campbell’s Soup Company, told The Rich Zeoli Show on 1210AM WPHT that Trump’s tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum would “ultimately harm consumers” and that a “tariff, is a tax on consumers.”

Johnston said, “when Americans go into stores to buy” cans of Campbell’s Soup, “they don’t buy one can, they buy five or six at a time”, responding to Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross’s claim.

“In the can of Campbell’s soup, there’s about 2.6 cents worth of steel so if that goes up by 25 percent, that’s about six-tenths of one cent.”

Johnston continued, “All of the these costs get passed on. This is going to be a cost increase, a tariff is a tax on consumers.”

Because the company doesn't want their wholesome brand associated with controversial and unproven conspiracies about the migrant caravan, especially in the wake of the shooting at the synagogue.
