The 93-year-old billionaire co-founder of Home Depot railed against "socialism" for why nobody wants to work and warned capitalism is in dire straits.
In an interview published Thursday, Bernie Marcus told Financial Times that "nobody works, nobody gives a damn," blaming socialists and "the woke people" for the country's troubles.
"'Just give it to me. Send me money. I don't want to work — I'm too lazy, I'm too fat, I'm too stupid,'" Marcus said, adding if he founded Home Depot in today's toxic environment, it might not succeed.
On a video call for the interview, Marcus spoke from his home in Boca Raton, Florida, warning that he's "worried about capitalism ... it's the basis of Home Depot [and] millions of people have earned this success and had success. I'm talking manufacturers, vendors and distributors and people that work for us [who have been] able to enrich themselves by the journey of Home Depot."
