GOP Donor Les Wexner Announces Departure From Republican Party After Obama Visit

Ohio billionaire and longtime Republican donor Les Wexner says he is officially done with the party, and was prompted to leave after former President Barack Obama visited the state.

Wexner, the CEO of retail conglomerate L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, announced at a leadership summit in Columbus on Thursday that he “won’t support this nonsense in the Republican Party” anymore, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

The announcement, made at a panel discussion, came the same day Obama visited Columbus before heading to a rally in Cleveland to support Democrat Richard Cordray’s run for governor.

“I was struck by the genuineness of the man; his candor, humility and empathy for others,” Wexner said of Obama.

I am really really not looking forward to seeing videos of the MAGA crowd burning their lingerie.

Bill Kristol ( :shit: ) :
I share Les Wexner's disgust with the GOP. But I'm going to try to convince him to help with one last effort to save it. It's worth fighting to try to save one of our two major parties from descending permanently into the abyss of Trump and Trumpism.
Bill, honey, you were instrumental in inflicting Sarah Palin on us, star-struck by her even after McCain's defeat in 2008. That's an ineradicable stain on your so-called intellect and reputation. Forever and ever, amen.

[Also, plus, too, you can add Ford Motor Company to the list in the comment above. Golly, I wonder if all the trumpsters are burning their F-250 pickups. No? Huh. What kinda boycott is that? Wusses.]

Another very wealthy Republican is jumping ship:
Money Talks. Will the G.O.P. Listen?
Seth Klarman was once the biggest donor to the Republican Party in New England. This year he’s giving some $20 million to Democrats.
