A supporter of President Donald Trump recently paid a heavy price for her decision to share a video created by right-wing provocateur and white nationalist promoter Milo Yiannopoulos.
In a CNN article about the dating woes of Trump supporters in New York City, one New York woman in her 30s explained that she got unfriended by her entire field hockey team for posting a Milo video on social media.
In addition to losing friends among her fellow field hockey players, the woman said that people regularly insult her when they discover she voted for -- and still supports -- the president.
"I can’t believe you are college educated," she recalls one person telling her.
Elsewhere in the article, 24-year-old electrician Mike Lagana complains about all the women he meets online who immediately stop talking with him once they discover he's a Trump supporter.
"Just because I voted for someone does not mean I’m this stuff," he complained to CNN. "'Oh, he’s racist, or he’s a Nazi' or whatever the case may be. I’m not any of that. I take offense to it. You know nothing about me."
And finally, one 23-year-old Trump supporter tells CNN that he's instituted a "don't-ask-don't-tell" policy when it comes to talking about politics on dates for fear of immediately turning off prospective mates before they get a chance to know him.
"You just know it’s going to be a point of conflict," he explained.
