Conversation with a trumper co-worker

A co-worker and myself were talking about a couple of really bad bosses we have experienced over the years. Each had common undesirable character traits such as complete narcissism and petty revenge tactics to anyone that questioned them, even if it was just an honest question. We reminisced how they would come into a situation that had worked for years without them and then take credit for all of it. We were both on the same train of thought until I said " they are just like trump". My co-worker clammed up but I could tell he didn't really get it, or didn't want to. Anyone that works for a total asshole, tell your co-workers he/she is just like trump. Maybe they'll think twice about voting for the moron or any politician who kisses his ass.

More from CREW about corporations donating to seditionists


On January 6, 2021, thousands of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol Building in an effort to overturn the results of a free and fair election after being commanded by President Trump to “fight like hell.” Swiftly following the attack, corporate America correctly placed blame on the 147 members of Congress who fanned the flames by refusing to certify Trump’s loss. Nearly two hundred fifty companies announced they would no longer support the so-called Sedition Caucus. But since the January 6 insurrection, more than two thirds have abandoned their commitment.

Corporate and industry group political action committees have donated more than $44 million directly to the campaigns and leadership PACs of the 147 members of the Sedition Caucus. Companies and trade associations that pledged to suspend donations have given more than $12 million to the campaign and leadership PACs of the Sedition Caucus.

Koch Industries ($626,500), American Crystal Sugar ($530,000), Home Depot ($525,000), Boeing ($488,000), and UPS ($479,500) have contributed the most money to members of the Sedition Caucus through their corporate PACs. In the days after January 6, many of these companies vowed to use their political spending to hold those members of Congress responsible. Boeing released a statement that they “strongly condemn the violence, lawlessness and destruction that took place in the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021,” but demonstrated their lack of concern when they resumed giving to seditionists just five months after the insurrection. Koch Industries claimed they would evaluate the members they donate to based on “civility” following the attack. How they define that is questionable, however, as they resumed giving to seditionists two months later. Home Depot suspended donations while “carefully reviewing and reevaluating each of the members who voted to object to the election results,” but evidently decided that taking part in an effort to thwart the peaceful transfer of power was not a dealbreaker.
