Actual, in person, conversation with a lily white, fair-haired, woman and her husband:
Her: “Trump’s my man. I like him! He hates all the people I hate!”
I seriously did not know what to say to this. So I said the only thing I that came to mind after my face went back to it’s normal countenance.
“What a reason to elect a President of our country! That’s just one of the reasons I’ll never vote for him.”
Her husband piped up and agreed that he doesn’t like Trump and said he didn’t vote for him in the primary. He recounted how he’d gone to the voting booth undecided but was trying to choose between Ben Carson and Ted Cruz.
I asked if he’d considered John Kasich as I thought that if you’re going to vote for a Republican it made sense to vote for someone who could work across the aisle. I don’t think any of the other candidates cares about that. He doesn’t know anything about Kasich. Research much?
Him: “I don’t like Trump but I’ll vote for whoever the Republican nominee is. With a Republican controlled Congress and a Republican President we won’t have to work across the aisle.”
“You do know the government is supposed to represent and work for all the people, not just some of the people, right? This isn’t Burger King, you can’t have it your way.”
Him: “It’s already been that way. Democrats have been getting their way all this time.”
