Conservative men living in President Donald Trump’s Washington DC are complaining that liberal women in the city are unfairly judging them for their political beliefs.
Multiple conservatives who talked with Washingtonian say that they have had more trouble getting dates in the wake of Trump’s election in 2016 — and even if they aren’t Trump supporters, they are being tarred with the same brush.
“The policies and these things that are attached to the right whether or not you’re a supporter of Trump have been pre-supposed on you, and it’s like a black mark,” says one reporter at a conservative publication.
“The political divide has gotten so wide that a lot of younger liberals don’t have any interest in meeting conservatives,” says another writer at the same publication.
One current Trump administration official says that he has trouble getting women to go on dates with him as soon as they find out who his boss is.
“A lot of times you’ll connect with someone [on an app] and they’ll Google you, find out you worked for Trump’s campaign, and then it’s pretty much all downhill from there,” the official said.
