Home Depot Co-Founder Has Libs Fuming & Triggered With His Plan To Donate Part Of Fortune To Trump Campaign
Liberals and ‘Progressives’ – I always chuckle when I hear that word – are often whiny babies who pout and threaten to boycott when someone does or says something they do not like. They are above all, anti-First Amendment. That is what happened this week when an interview was published in The Atlanta Journal Constitution with the cofounder of Home Depot.
Bernie Marcus, a billionaire from his confounding of the home improvement giant, vowed to make a significant donation to the re-election of President Donald Trump.
“According to OpenSecrets.org, he was a top contributor to Donald Trump during his presidential run. And Marcus told the AJC that he plans to support the president’s re-election bid.
“While Trump ‘sucks’ at communication, Marcus said, the president deserves praise for boosting U.S. jobs, confronting China on trade and taking action against Iranian and North Korean aggression,” The Journal Constitution said.
“He’s got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things. … 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,” Marcus said.
He did have some criticism for the president on his communication and on the battles that he chooses to fight.
“I’ll tell you what he has not done well: His communication sucks. I mean he takes on every battle. He’s fighting. He does things he shouldn’t be doing.
“As president of the United States, I’d rather him do things that are meaningful,” he said in the interview with The Journal Constitution.
“He’s left instructions for the foundation board, outlining his priorities — from medical discoveries and treatment for kids with autism to creating 20 to 25 centers around the nation to help veterans suffering from brain injuries and post-traumatic stress,” The Journal Constitution said.

Kathy Griffin, the formerly-relevant comedian, admitted in an interview her life was ruined after she posed for the infamous photoshoot in 2017 with President Donald J. Trump’s bloody, severed head and is now virtually ‘unemployable’ according to sources inside Griffin’s representation.
So what’s a girl to do? When in Rome, Kathy played the gender card, the ageist card and probably would play the redhead card if it weren’t for the fact that she had a red-faced, red-haired, bloody and severed red-head grabbed by the hair that looked like President Trump.
“I was on the no-fly list, and I had to be interrogated, like I said, by the feds under oath,” Griffin said. “That also didn’t happen to any of the other guys who supposedly threatened the president, and I was singled out, and I think it’s because I’m a woman, and probably because I’m 57, and I don’t have a big network or studio behind me.”
Of course, she tried to play the victim, despite the fact that the decision to do the photoshoot was hers, and hers alone. She has no one to blame for her poor judgement but herself, but that is not stopping her from blaming Trump for her woes.
She said in a separate interview that she was “unemployable” and “uninsurable.”
AND YET – why is she giving the interview in the first place? Wouldn’t that hurt her career further? Nope. Check this out: The comedian is promoting ‘Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story’, a part documentary and part comedy special, that documents her ordeal with the Trump administration after the controversy.
I guess they didn’t employ her or use insurance on that special?
This is not the first time Griffin has complained about the fallout from her bad decisions. In a June 2017 press conference, she cried as she explained that Trump “broke [her].” She eventually apologized in a Tweet, which she later deleted.
Although she took down the photo from her social media accounts and issued an apology — that she proceeded to retract later, the fallout from her actions continued, to the point where she lost marketing gigs, got fired by CNN from its New Year’s Eve broadcast with Anderson Cooper and had all her tour dates canceled.
At least two senators at that time – Al Franken and Catherine Cortez Masto – distanced themselves from her. While the former disinvited her from a promotional event for his upcoming book, the latter announced that she will donate the $1000 she received from Griffin for her campaign to charity.
While promoting her feature film, Griffin told Associated Press in an interview that just days after becoming the center of backlash and federal investigation, she realized the significance of the events that were unfolding around her. “I kept saying, ‘I think this is an important, historic story,’” Griffin told the outlet. “The President and the Department of Justice shouldn’t make you unemployable and uninsurable.”
Rob Reiner, who used to play ultra-liberal “The Meathead” son-in-law to Archie Bunker has turned into a caricature of Michael Stivic over the past few years, spewing hatred toward not just President Trump – but now anyone who supports Trump. This week he tweeted that anyone who supports President Trump is automatically a racist.
The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism. If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.

Reiner tweeted, “The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism. If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.”
This followed Reiner’s pronouncement: “Donald Trump’s mind is infested. With racism, with misogyny, with lies, with bigotry, with hate.”

Earlier he tweeted, “Every day between now and Election Day in Nov. of 2020, you have only to keep reminding yourself that the President of the United States is a Racist, a Liar, a Sexual Predator and a Criminal. The choice is easy.”

Reiner’s wacko leftism has been in evidence for decades. In 2004, Reiner praised Michael Moore’s film “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which insinuated that President George W. Bush colluded with the family of terrorist Osama Bin Laden so that they could escape the United States after 9/11. He enthused, “I think this is one of the most important films ever made. It has the potential of actually affecting the election, and if it does, it will change the world.”
In 2006, Reiner slammed ABC for airing the miniseries “Path to 9/11,” which chronicled the actions taken during the Clinton administration that allowed Osama Bin Laden to evade capture before 9/11, writing, “ABC along with everyone who had anything to do with the production should be ashamed of themselves. I think we all can agree that it’s in everybody’s best interests for the Republicans to be searching out the perpetrators who were complicit in the 9/11 attacks, rather than spending time actively trying to set the blame on the previous administration.”
In 2014, Reiner likened the terrorist group Hamas to the conservative Tea Party in America. He started, “Well, there again, you’ve got a horrible situation where you have an extreme faction, the Hamas, that controls Gaza, that is written into their playbook, the destruction of Israel. The destruction of every Jew on the planet, you can’t negotiate with that, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two state solution. The Palestinians turned down the ability to have their own state in 1948 when Israel was formed, so clearly, Hamas, and again, the virulent faction of a, really, uh, strong, uh, fundamental group can control everything.”
Then he added, “You look at the Congress right now in the United States, you’ve got a strong Tea Party group controlling the whole country, because they have a gridlock, they have a gridlock, uh, stranglehold on [House Speaker John] Boehner. Boehner can’t make a move, and so for that reason, nothing gets brought up in the Congress, so anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and they way to do it is to eliminate it, with the Tea Party, you have to go through political thing, you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but, ugh, that is really tough stuff.”
