Tom Cotton recently stunned the CEO of Krogers grocery stores by giving him some tough love.
Krogers is trying to merge with another grocery chain and the Democrats are not playing along. So the CEO of the company came begging to Republicans for help.
However, in the recent past, Krogers was sued by some employees who were told that they had to wear pride rainbows as part of their job.
So Tom Cotton basically said to the CEO, you’re on your own, pal.

Sen. Tom Cotton on ‘woke’ CEOs who run to GOP to escape Dem regulation: ‘Best of luck’
Sen. Tom Cotton scolded “woke” CEOs last week who expect Republicans to come to their defense when Democrats want to regulate their industries, telling them, “Best of luck.”
Cotton, R-Ark., was discussing the merger between the Kroger and Albertsons grocery chains when he railed against companies inserting themselves in cultural issues. He likened it to tech companies asking for GOP protection from overregulation by Democrats.
“I’ve cautioned them for years that if they silence conservatives and center-right voters… if they discriminate against them in their company, they probably shouldn’t come and ask Republican senators to carry the water for them whenever our Democratic friends want to regulate them or block their mergers,” he said during a Nov. 29 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the proposed merger between the grocery giants.

“I’ll say this: ‘I’m sorry that’s happening to you. Best of luck,” he added.

Companies can do whatever they want, but no one is obligated to save them.
CEOs had better choose wisely.
