We’re only a few precious weeks into the summer, but while normal people have already taken the opportunity to ditch their phones and relax by the pool, go on vacation, and/or do other types of outdoorsy things they enjoy, the online outrage machine hasn’t stopped. In fact, it has been cranked up into even higher gears than normal.
The latest example comes from the liberal fauxtrage machine in response to the news that Home Depot’s co-founder announced he would be supporting President Trump’s reelection campaign:
Home Depot shoppers have been threatening to boycott the store after its co-founder, Bernie Marcus, revealed in a recent interview that he’d be donating to President Trump’s re-election bid.
“Never shopping @HomeDepot again,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Cutting up my card,” another said.
Marcus, who retired from Home Depot in 2002, has been a vocal Trump supporter in the past — despite not always agreeing with him.
“He’s got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things,” Marcus told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a recent interview, which has been making the rounds on social media.
Between the Home Depot boycott, Nike’s absurd decision not to sell the Betsy Ross flag-themed shoe, a Tempe, AZ Starbucks kicking out police officers, the disturbing Blue Bell ice cream licking incidents, and others, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) asked the same question Monday many of us are wondering about:
In just the last 7 days we have decided that the Betsy Ross flag is offensive,to kick police officers out of Starbucks,boycott Nike (again) Starbucks (again) & now HomeDepot. And to lick Ice Cream at grocery stores & put back in freezer.
Has everyone gone crazy?

I was asking myself the same thing after finding out this week that air conditioning is sexist. 😉
We are living in some incredibly crazy times.
