WATCH: Here Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Bashes Capitalism
As I may have sort-of-kind-of mentioned, my man and I closed on a home yesterday. It’s official…and I’m over the moon. As an immigrant to this country, nothing could feel more like an American dream that becoming a first-time homeowner. I AM ON CLOUD NINE.
Anyway – what I’m getting at is that we’re about to spend A LOT of time at Home Depot. We’re big fans. We’re there a lot now, as it is.
So when I heard that Leftists planned on boycotting the home-improvement store because of the co-founder’s positive outlook on Trump, I had to ask:
So I guess the Left decided to #BoycottHomeDepot?

I mean… maybe Leftists go to Home Depot. I’ve yet to encounter them.
Now, Bernie Marcus has responded to the boycott… and it REALLY Speaks to me:
“I woke up this morning thinking it was going to be another great day,” he wrote. “I’ve been celebrating with friends, family and the community since I turned 90 … All that happiness blew up because I said in a newspaper interview that I have supported and will continue to support Donald Trump.”
“Boom!” is right. These people explode at the flip of a switch.
Here’s the whole thing:
“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.”
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Some people are born to DO… and others are born to b*tch.
Who will YOU be?
