It sure would seem that way. Jenny, 26, from New Orleans, was outspoken against President Trump. She says she wouldn’t date a Trump supporter, because there would be “fundamental differences in the values we hold most important.” If she were in the middle of a good first date and found out the guy was a Trump fan, she’d “try and finish the evening like nothing was wrong — but definitely wouldn’t make concrete plans for a second date.”
Not everyone manages to hold it together as well. Peter, 41, in Midtown East has gotten dramatic reactions from dates when he mentions he’s a Trump supporter. “One stormed out,” he said. Another “just shut down and stared into space.” He describes sitting next to women who are drinking $30 glasses of wine and talking about their upcoming Vermont ski trips — while also discussing their fear that America has become Nazi Germany.
It’s murder out there. The solution, of course, is not to associate with proglodytes.
