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.”

Ex-GOP impeachment manager ripped to shreds on CNN for ‘upside down’ defense of Trump’s conduct

On CNN Monday, two veterans of the impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton clashed over whether President Donald Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses.

"My view is that the phrase that the president's lawyers included in their six-page answer over the weekend is absolutely ironclad, perfectly correct," said Bob Barr, a former House impeachment manager against Clinton. "The language in the Constitution says very clearly that the only basis on which a president can be impeached and removed from office is treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. You have to have a crime. And no matter how much rhetoric you put around that to try and get around it, that is a fact, a legal fact, you have to have a crime."

Donald Trump and Ben Carson are destroying one of MLK’s most enduring legacies

Published

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act just days after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King -- and President Donald Trump's Housing secretary wants to undo that legacy.

The 1968 law hasn't been able to undo the harm from government-sanctioned housing segregation, which still feeds today's wealth and racial inequality, but the Department of Housing and Urban Development wants to remove a protection for black owners who pay unfairly high property taxes, reported the New York Times.
