“So somebody tweeted last night and said, ‘Glenn, what did you think of the Coke ad?’ And I said, ‘Why did you need that to divide us politically?’" he said on his radio show.

That’s all this is: To divide people."

"Remember when Coke used to do the thing on the top and they would all hold hands?" he added. "Now it’s, have a Coke and we’ll divide you.”
