Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus has been an outspoken critic of Bernie Sanders and socialism in general.
He is also a supporter of President Trump’s 2020 reelection.
Now some leftists are pushing for a boycott of Home Depot because of this.
The Daily Caller reports:
BoycottHomeDepot Trends On Twitter As Trump Haters Pan Billionaire’s Plans To Donate To President’s Reelection
The hashtag #BoycottHomeDepot trended on Monday evening on Twitter after opponents of President Donald Trump discovered that the home improvement giant’s co-founder, billionaire Bernie Marcus, intends to give a portion of his wealth to help reelect the president.
“He’s got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things,” Marcus told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which reported the news last week. “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.”
While Marcus’s contributions over the years include funding the Georgia Aquarium and contributing millions to an Atlanta autism center along with several other medical facilities in the state, the fact that the 90-year-old billionaire businessman gave to Trump’s campaign in 2016 and intends to do so again in 2020 was enough to catch the wrath of #Resistance Twitter.
Some conservatives are countering this by taking over the hashtag on Twitter:
I love how liberals are trying to boycott a store we all know they never go to. 😂
The only liberals who shop at hardware stores are members of Antifa.#BoycottHomeDepot

Liberal boycotts are a joke, just like liberals. The best thing for your business is a liberal boycott. Your sales will explode after lunatic libs announce their “boycott.” Just ask Chick-fil-A https://t.co/OtYXqozGUa

#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

The left has lost its mind.
