Billionaire Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot, plans to use part of his fortune to make sure President Donald Trump gets re-elected in 2020. The billionaire's net worth varies depending on who you ask. Forbes estimates his net-worth to be $5.8 billion, while Bloomberg estimates it to be at $4.53 billion. Marcus, however, declines to say what exactly he's worth.
Democrats are suddenly hearing the news, a week after the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported about Marcus' plans. And, in typical liberal fashion, they're having a meltdown.
They've now launched a Home Depot boycott over Marcus' political contributions.
#BoycottHomeDepot never shopped there anyway. I'll never knowingly shop at a place when I disagree w/ their politics. I've NEVER eaten @ChickfilA & have not set foot in @HobbyLobby in yrs. I'm not a whiner, I don't care what others do, but this is how I choose to NOT spend my $.— Tina ?? (@USMC_wife_) July 9, 2019
#BoycottHomeDepot as a hard working communist I absolutely despise an evil, greedy corporate powerhouse in Home Depot.— JacDeeMac (@JacDeeMac) July 9, 2019
But they also do sell hammers & sickles. And weapons for the revolution...
Do I hate them...or support them...decisions decisions decisions
Conservatives pointed out a few very true things about Home Depot:
The Left wants to #BoycottHomeDepot, but supports:— PragerU (@prageru) July 9, 2019
Nike for banning a shoe with the American flag
Starbucks for supporting leftist causes
Disney for refusing to film in Georgia
Netflix ads attacking white people
Why should the Left tell you what you can or can't support?
#BoycottHomeDepot is trending because one of the founders has decided to donate much of his riches to @realDonaldTrump's reelection campaign. You know, @HomeDepot that can hire more people now because of this economy? Yup.. that's how dumb the left is. #BuyHomeDepot— Joe Pags Pagliarulo (@JoeTalkShow) July 8, 2019
I love how liberals are trying to boycott a store we all know they never go to. ??— Nick Adams (@NickAdamsinUSA) July 8, 2019
The only liberals who shop at hardware stores are members of Antifa.#BoycottHomeDepot
Out of all of the things liberals could be upset about, this is what they choose? Police officers in Arizona were kicked out of Starbucks and they're not upset. Veterans don't get the treatment they need and liberals aren't upset.
It's like they're always looking for something to complain about. Always.
And, in case they weren't aware, people have the free will to do whatever they want with their money. Just like they can choose to shop elsewhere, Mr. Marcus can use his money to help get his candidate re-elected. It's called being an American and participating in the political process.
