Hobby Lobby founder thinks we care about his presidential endorsement…

12:12 PM EST on February 29, 2016


Over the weekend, Hobby Lobby founder and CEO David Green announced his endorsement for president. He did this because he's a mega-successful businessman who's made billions of dollars selling cheap imported art supplies, wall ornaments and frames to unsuspecting Americans, which means his opinion on who should be the next leader of the free world is way more important and valuable than yours or mine.

Here's his statement via

“Our family business that we began with $600 has quite possibly been more successful than Mr. Trump’s, but that doesn’t make either of us qualified to be president. And unlike Mr. Trump, we give all the credit to God. Marco Rubio has impressed us with his preparation and the way he carries himself. But most importantly, Marco regularly exhibits humility and gives the glory to God. Humility is what brings success. I don’t see humility in Mr. Trump, and that scares me to death. I want a president that my kids, my grandkids and my great-grandkids can emulate. In Marco Rubio, I see a man who has achieved great things from humble beginnings, but gives the glory to God, where it belongs. I see a man who is prepared to be president, and someone I would be proud for my children to emulate. I will be voting for Marco Rubio on Tuesday and I encourage my fellow Oklahomans to do the same,” Green said in a statement.

That's surprising. I would have pegged Green as a Ted Cruz supporter. That being said, Rubio makes sense. He's pro-corporation, pro-billionaire, and pro-theocrat, so I'm sure he'll make a great President for a family that doesn't have anything in common with the average Oklahoman.

Anyway, why is this even news? Who cares? If David Green wants to endorse a bead supplier, styrofoam ball maker or ancient artifacts smuggler, I'll listen, but why should any Oklahoman care about his opinion on the Presidential election? We have nothing in common with the guy. At last check, most of us are regular old thousandaires who have to worry about important things like making mortgage payments, finding decent healthcare or getting laid. He doesn't have to worry about any of those things! He's nothing but a greedy billionaire who collects old bibles and goes out of his way to deny Hobby Lobby employees basic healthcare benefits in the name of God. Screw him. I know it's an Oklahoma tradition to vote against our own self interests, but this takes things too far.
