Liberal Home Deport shoppers are pledging to boycott the home improvement megastore after co-founder Bernie Marcus said that he would be donating a good portion of his fortune to helping President Donald Trump secure re-election. In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution last month, Marcus said that he appreciated Trump’s approach to the economy as well as other facets of his presidential term.
“He’s got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things,” Marcus said. “Now, do I agree with every move that he makes? No, I don’t. But the truth is he has produced more than anybody else. He has. If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago.”
These remarks touched off a firestorm on social media as liberals realized for the first time that Marcus – who donated some $7 million to Trump in 2016 – is ONE OF THEM. And despite the fact that Marcus hasn’t had anything to do with Home Depot in more than fifteen years, they vowed to never again darken those orange doors again.
“Never shopping @HomeDepot again,” wrote one disgruntled shopper on Twitter.
“Thanks for inspiring me to shop anywhere else for home improvement stuff!” tweeted another. “I cringe, thinking how I unwittingly helped the #WorstPresidentEver over the past few years.”
“If you plan on buying a hammer, wood, or ANY home improvement items from Home Depot, you may as well send donations DIRECTLY to trump’s 2020 campaign,” another bleeding-heart wrote. “No more, @HomeDepot. #BoycottHomeDepot.”
And if you’re thinking the obvious, conservative commentator Nick Adams already beat you to the punch.
“I love how liberals are trying to boycott a store we all know they never go to,” he wrote.
Oh well, so continues the growing pantheon of American businesses that have faced the ire of the left only to emerge relatively unscathed. Chick-fil-A is still booming, Hobby Lobby is doing fine as far as we can tell, and we’re sure that Home Depot will be no worse off for this supposed “boycott” the left is organizing. If anything, these companies seem to endear themselves to conservatives, who are justifiably tired of giving all their money to businesses that turn around and use them to support Democrats, LGBT activism, and every other left-wing cause under the sun.
In the meantime, Home Depot will surely manage without selling the occasional light bulb to the liberal nutjobs on Twitter.
