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.

Obama Now Demanding TV Stations Stop Running Anti-Biden, Pro-Trump Ad In South Carolina

Is he in a position to do this?

Is Barack Obama in a position to make demands? This is a guy who won’t even endorse or campaign for the man who served as his vice president for nearly a full decade, and don’t you forget that. From The Hill: Former President Obama’s attorneys say they plan to file a cease-and-desist letter over a pro-Trump group’s television ad in South Carolina that attacks former Vice President Joe Biden by using a portion of Obama’s book out of context. Obama is also demanding that all South Carolina television stations immediately stop running the ad from the Committee to Defend the President, which is aimed at supporting President Trump’s reelection bid. CONTINUED: “This despicable ad is straight out of the Republican disinformation playbook, and it’s clearly designed to suppress turnout among minority voters in South Carolina by taking President Obama’s voice out of context and twisting his words to mislead viewers,” Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill said in a statement. Biden is quite the card, even after all these years. Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes. WATCH: https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Michelle Obama is known for not being proud of her country. She made that clear a few years back, when she said she was finally proud of America once Barack was elected president. Wonders that did for the nation, huh, Michelle? Was America better off after eight years of your husband’s scandals and malfeasance? Yeah, good luck defending that simple question. In 2019, the wife of the former community organizer was in Malaysia. Why? Who cares? But while there, she managed to bash the U.S. of A. Such a proud American, this one… From Breitbart:…

Mayor Calls Bernie Supporters ‘Radicals’ & ‘Socialists’ And the Crowd Erupts In Cheers [Video]

They are all so proud…

Not exactly proud to be American. Certainly not fans of capitalism. But these Bernie Sanders supporters in South Carolina are friggin’ elated to be referred to as “radicals” and “socialists.” And no, in case you were thinking it, this isn’t like conservatives owning the word “deplorables” after Hillary Clinton spouted off at the mouth. This is different. It’s not a joke. This is how they really feel. You’ll just have to see for yourself.

They’re all on the “same page.” The figurative cat is absolutely out of the bag. There are no more true “Democrats,” as it were.
