In Olive Garden we trust.
Fervid Olive Garden fans jumped to the restaurant chain’s defense after Anderson Cooper dared to drag the popular eatery — saying the mob of rioters who stormed the US Capitol should celebrate there.
The CNN anchor made the comment Wednesday as video of angry protesters storming the Capitol appeared on the screen.
“Look at them, they’re high-fiving each other for this deplorable display of completely unpatriotic, completely against law and order, completely unconstitutional behavior, it’s stunning,” Cooper said.
“And they’re going to go back to the Olive Garden and to the Holiday Inn they’re staying at, or the Garden Marriott, and they’re going to have some drinks and talk about the great day they had in Washington … They stood up for nothing other than mayhem.”
Olive Garden quickly started trending on Twitter, with quick-witted fans defending the Italian chain.
“All Olive Garden ever wanted to do was provide unlimited salad and breadsticks to the people,” Imani Gandy wrote. “They don’t deserve to be dragged like this.”
“There is a literal coup happening and somehow y’all have still found the time to drag Olive Garden,” Twitter user Shaynizzle wrote.
One popular meme showed a man wearing a Trump hat smiling as he walked away with a congressional podium.
“When you’re about to celebrate w the boys at Olive Garden /// holiday inn,” one caption said.
“You coming to Olive Garden after curfew?” said another. “That’s cool, I’ll catch you at the hotel pool later.”
Olive Garden has not addressed Cooper’s comment on Twitter.
