Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone offered a spicy bit of advice to former President Barack Obama on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto” Wednesday night.

Langone, who founded The Home Depot with Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, among others, insisted Barack Obama should “go off into the sunset” and “keep [his] mouth shut.”



“Why don’t you think the president is getting more of the goodwill from this good economy — the good markets?” Cavuto asked. “Now there’s been a battle between [Trump] and President Obama; who takes the credit for this bull market — the longest in history? Who does?”

“Forget about it” Langone began. “Obama ought to do what every great president did. Go off into the sunset. Be the mother of the groom. Wear beige and keep your mouth shut. OK?”

“What I’m saying is that, like it or not, Trump’s base is rock solid,” he continued. “Donald Trump needs 15 percent of the voters to get re-elected in 2020. That 35 percent is rock solid. I would hope he would do things different than he did, but damn, give the guy credit. The Koreans had a big parade. They didn’t have — nothing. We had a meeting with them. I watched John Kerry on television. Oh, we couldn’t get a meeting with them.”
