Trump supporter ‘heartbroken’ after neighbor calls him out for backing ‘racist groper’

Published

An Oklahoma man said he’s “heartbroken” that a neighbor called him out for supporting bigotry by backing President Donald Trump.

Morgan Casper started finding anti-Trump messages pinned to a pumpkin earlier this month on his front porch, so he set up a security camera to find out who was leaving the notes, reported KOTV-TV.

“Real men don’t grope,” read one small sign.

Another message suggested Trump supporters were complicit in the president’s hateful attacks on some Americans.

“Not all Trump supporters are overtly racist, or ableist, or misogynist,” the note read. “But every one of them decided hating people with brown skin or disabilities or women wasn’t a deal breaker. Own that decision.”

That hurt Casper’s feelings.

“I was very heartbroken because it’s not who I am,” Casper said. “I’m not a racist. I look at everyone as equal. I mean, my wife is an Indian, I’m white.”

The Tulsa man caught the woman on camera placing the messages on his porch, and he hoped to confront her.

“It just breaks my heart that someone thinks that way of someone else that they don’t even know,” Casper told KJRH-TV.

He spotted her earlier this week while driving through his midtown neighborhood, and he pulled over and asked the woman about her signs — while he recorded the encounter on video.

The woman at first denied placing the messages on his porch, but Casper said he had video evidence, and he tried to explain that he wasn’t a hateful person despite backing Trump.

“I’m sorry if I come across as that, you don’t know who I am,” Casper said, and the woman agreed. “It makes me sad that you judge me that way, because it just breaks my heart.”

The woman seemed to lose interest as Casper explained his political views, but he called her back to his car.

“There are things about Trump I don’t like,” Casper said. “I don’t like that he goes on Twitter and says stuff very openly, I don’t like some of the stuff he did in history.”

The woman then asked why he’d elect a man like that to lead the country, but Casper changed the subject to Bill Clinton.

“He’s a moron, all you have to do is listen to him talk,” the woman said. “He has a vocabulary the size of a second-grader’s. He’s an evil piece of crap, and I’m scared. That’s the only reason I would have done those things. I didn’t key your truck or anything like that, I just wanted someone to tell these complacent ass wipes that they really screwed up — and that’s what I thought you were.”

Casper granted her opinion but reminded her she didn’t know him, but she pointed out he advertised his support for Trump with signs and bumper stickers.

“You said I was advertising that, like it’s a bad thing,” he said. “That’s why America is America.”

He said his support for Trump was no different than someone supporting Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and the woman explained her personal stake in politics.

“I just went on disability this last year,” she said. “I live on a thousand dollars a month, and Trump is threatening that. It’s not about their personalities or silly things they say — it’s life and death.”

‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

Published

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"
