A Chicago Trump supporter went on a ten-minute rampage inside a local Michael’s retail outlet, blaming non-existent discrimination and everyone nearby for her “plight.” Her worst condemnation was saved for the white mother of a young child, who wisely whipped out her cell phone and started recording the incident.
The tirade exposed this Trump voter’s own guilt and shame while lashing out at a totally innocent African-American sales clerk who did nothing more than offering a reusable bag to this woman for the customary $1 price:
“I voted for Trump — so there. You want to kick me out for that? And look who won.”
The Trump supporter saved her worst condemnation for when she confronted the innocent bystander capturing the incident on video for her own safety. The Trump supporter bathed herself in self-pity and blame while saying:
“I don’t know what you think you’re videoing, lady. I was just discriminated against by two black women, and you being a white woman, you’re literally thinking that that’s okay? You standing there with your baby thinking that’s okay.”
Plainly, these kind of Trump voter outbursts, tantrums of reverse racism allegations and persecution are irrational and baseless. It seems like their buyer’s remorse is growing in the wake of the President-elect’s total betrayal of all of his election promises and his movement to deliver our government to a wolfpack of Wall Street bankers, billionaires, and racists.
In the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral surprise, his supporters have taken it upon themselves to define to America just what it means to be a sore winner.
