Life continues to grow gloomier by the day for Target CEO Brian Cornell, who was reportedly called out by shareholders at the company’s annual meeting of investigators this week for his refusal to admit that his transgender bathroom policy has cost the company billions.
“Target’s shareholder meeting was appalling from beginning to end,” investor Justin Danhof, director of the National Center Free Enterprise Project, said in a statement released after the meeting, according to Breitbart.
“Cornell just kept repeating the same vacuous lines about diversity and inclusion,” the statement continued. “He doesn’t seem to get that he has offended the sensibilities of millions of Americans.”
Nor does he seem to comprehend that his company’s stock price has dropped by 18 percent since April, as he repeatedly tried to claim that Target has suffered “zero negative financial implications” from its policy.
The liberal stooge and failed business executive lives in a bubble so impermeable that even the Bubble Boy would be envious of him.
Moreover, while speaking on CNBC last month, Cornell tried to compare the push for transgender bathrooms to the push for civil rights carried out by blacks during the 1960s — and this equivalency did not sit well with shareholders, including Danhof.
“What he is doing is making a moral equivalency of those who think his bathroom policy is outrageous and offensive today, so to those who oppose his bathroom policy, he is basically comparing them to racists from the 1960s,” he said. “And basically labeling everybody as a bigot.”
Except that the so-called transgender right to use any restroom violates the actual rights of millions of women and children, which suggests in turn that this “transgender right” is not in reality a right.
But Cornell doesn’t seem to care.
“If you disagree with (his) position on diversity and inclusion, that means nothing (to him),” Danhof said. “It seems, at least from my perspective, if you disagree with (him), (he) don’t want you around.”
Unfortunately for Cornell, neither the American people nor — increasingly — the shareholders of Target seem to want him around any longer.
