So Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot, just owned his critics.
I want to point out, he isn’t affiliated with the company anymore and hasn’t been for over a decade. Plus, he’s one of the largest donors to
medical research. But, he addresses that in his recent Facebook post to educate his critics. Here is the post.
“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.”

co-founder shreds Trump haters in new Facebook post
Maybe if these rabid leftists would do some research they wouldn’t embarrass themselves so often.
