Hamptons Trump supporters whine that their neighbors treat them like they ‘have a disease’

Published

Supporters of President Donald Trump who live in the wealthy Hamptons in New York bitterly complained to the New York Post over the weekend that they can’t openly declare their allegiance to the president over fears of reprisals and boycotts to their businesses.

One boutique owner from Southampton told the Post, for example, that Hamptons Trump fans have to remain “in the closet” because “it’s like you have this disease and people want to run away from you.”

A Trump-loving builder from Westhampton, meanwhile, tells the paper that he actually fears getting beat up or worse if he publicly acknowledges how he feels about the president.

“People have really strong opinions here and if you go around wearing a MAGA hat, you really need to fear physical violence,” he explained.

A Sag Harbor art consultant similarly told the Post that keeping quiet about support for Trump was “a matter of survival.”

“We live in the land of the First Amendment, but if you want to stay in business out here, you have to keep your opinions to yourself,” they said. “We are hitting a very dark and strange place as a country.”

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade

Published

on

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.
