Oracle Employees Unhappy With Trump Fundraiser Hosted By Boss

Published

on

Employees working for Oracle were none too happy to find out that the co-founder and chairman of the company, Larry Ellison, would be hosting a high-dollar fundraising event for President Trump at his Californiat home.

When employees found out about the event on Thursday, they expressed their frustration initially among themselves and with outside friends, posting links to the stories about the event — which is to be held at Ellison’s 249 acre property close to the Santa Rosa mountains — on social media.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“Oracle is not supposed to be political but yet our CEO is doing something very political, no?” said one current Oracle employee. “This fundraiser is a slap in the face to all of us, especially as Larry champions the environment and is building a hospital,” they said, citing Ellison’s philanthropic efforts. “This shows that he cares about money over all else. And that is what matters. But what is the average employee to do?”

The Feb. 19 event is part of Trump’s fundraising and campaign swing through California, Arizona, and Nevada next week. The high-profile appearances he will stage are also designed to take some wind from the sails of the Democrats duking it out ahead of the Nevada caucus and high-delegate Super Tuesday states.

The 18,430-square-foot home’s golf course was designed by billionaire former owner Tim Blixseth and professional golfers Tom Weiskopf, Dave Stockton, and Annika Sorenstam. When the property hit the market in 2010, Trump was floated as a potential buyer.

“It signals what I and many others have always feared,” one current employee told Recode. “Culturally, Oracle is the type of place where you’ll work with many lovely people who you share common ideals with, but those ideals have to be left at the door in service of the company.”

As it turns out, Ellison has been donating to Republican candidates and causes since the early 1990s, which also includes a whopping $4 million to super PACs that supported Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the 2016 presidential election.

At the end of the day, political ideas should be set aside so folks can work together on projects that have nothing to do with politics. Why this is such a big deal to the employees seems rather ridiculous. Does every person in an individual’s professional and private life have to walk in lock-step with their own personally held beliefs?

That’s just plain silliness.

Wonder if Obama lost money during his two terms?

What’s a billion dollars to a multi-billionaire? Probably nothing. But what’s a billion dollars to a man with an ego the size of Donald Trump’s? Probably a lot. That being said, the duly-elected POTUS didn’t care about losing money. He’s not dumb. He knew what he was getting in to when he ran declared his candidacy back in 2015. But losing a billion dollars is what can happen when you don’t take a salary or make any business deals for four solid years. From USA Today: WASHINGTON – The presidency appears to have cost Donald Trump more than $1 billion in wealth. Trump tumbled nearly 300 spots on Forbes’ billionaire rankings during his presidency, the magazine reported this week, with his estimated wealth falling from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion during his four-year term. CONTINUED: That’s still good enough for 1,299th place on the magazine’s new billionaire list, down from 1,001st last year. The list is topped by a frequent political target of Trump: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, whose wealth is tagged at $177 billion.

Report: Antifa Radicals Tried Burning Down Building with Federal Agents Inside (Watch)

You’d think this would be bigger news!!

What else is there to say about “antifa?” The radical group is comprised of anti-American children who don’t want to work and demand everything come free. They also don’t care how many innocent people die for their “cause,” either. Check this out, via Right Scoop: CNN only mentions Antifa when they’re arguing that Trump and Republicans believe in conspiracy theories about antifa. Otherwise, the group – which they think is an “idea” – is totally off their radar. Like last night, when they tried to burn down a federal building as part of their ongoing insurrection, CNN didn’t cover it. And still haven’t. In fact in the last year they’ve barely talked about violence in Portland, D.C., and elsewhere, except when they could blame it on conservatives. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TomasMorales_iv/status/1381163263992360960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1381163263992360960%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fcnns-best-friends-at-antifa-tried-to-torch-a-federal-building-with-people-inside-in-portland-last-night-on-video%2F From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.
