Home Depot Co-Founder Insults Dems For Opposing Tax Cuts For Corporations: ‘You Don’t Have Any Brains’

During an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, co-founder of Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus defended the GOP tax cuts for corporations and blasted Democratic lawmakers, telling them they don’t have any brains.

“Democrats, use your stupid brains. You don’t have any brains and don’t understand what happens,” Marcus said on the Fox News Channel on Saturday.

“This is not going to turn overnight. Corporations are not going to open 14 buildings overnight. Come on, give me a break, you’ve got to use your brains,” he said, referring to improvements in the economy.

President Trump and his Republican allies in Congress have said the recently passed GOP tax plan is helping the middle class, pointing to bonus announcements from companies such as Home Depot.

The company announced last week it would be doling out $1,000 bonuses for employees who have worked at Home Depot at least 20 years. Only a handful of employees qualify nationwide.

Hourly employees who have worked for the home improvement retailer less than two years can expect a $200 bonus. Workers who have been at the company for 10 years to 14 years will get $400.

Democrats, however, have argued the legislation only benefits corporations and the wealthy.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.) came under fire from Republicans after she downplayed the $1,000 bonuses a number of companies have announced.

“I’m not sure that $1,000 — which is taxed, taxable — goes very far for almost anyone,” she said.
