Bernie Marcus Fires Back After Liberals Threaten To Boycott Home Depot
Billionaire co-founder of Home Depot, Bernie Marcus came under heavy scrutiny earlier this week after an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
He told the newspaper that he supported President Trump in his election campaign in 2016.
Now all the overly sensitive liberals want to boycott Home Depot even though he has nothing to do with the company anymore. Honestly, it’s like boycotting KFC for something I would do now because I used to work there when I was a teenager.
But the billionaire wasn’t going to remain silent about it.
Bernie Marcus shared the following on a Facebook post Wednesday morning,
“I woke up this morning thinking it was going to be another great day. I’ve been celebrating with friends, family and the community since I turned 90. I’ve told you about the gracious gift of $117 million that was collected and given in my honor to four charities that mean a lot to me. All that happiness blew up because I said in a newspaper interview that I have supported and will continue to support Donald Trump.
Negative stories… vicious threats, without cause, to boycott the company that has enabled my foundation to give billions to support autism, medical research, education, heart and neurological issues like stroke, and to help our veterans. The company that I retired from in 2002 and have not had a business relationship with in almost 20 years. A company that has employed more than a half-million people. The people who work there are affiliated with both political parties or no party at all. They are of all religions and all colors and backgrounds. Why would people want to hurt them?
All because I give my voice and some of my money to our President. Am I in China? Argentina? Russia? That’s what it feels like to me.
It saddens me that our country has come to this, where I, as a private citizen, cannot express my feelings. It angers me and it saddens me, but it sure as hell is not going to stop me. If you thought it would, you’ve got the wrong guy.
In the next ten years, God willing, I will accomplish more to save this world than my critics will do even if they had forty lifetimes.”
It looks like Bernie Marcus isn’t taking any crap from anyone and who would blame him? He doesn’t need to answer to anyone. He’s not running Home Depot.
At the same time, he’s not trying to hurt Home Depot, that’s the liberals with no common sense who are wanting to do that.
