If you’re a Trump supporter, here’s what you really are
Trump supporters say a lot of stupid things.
One Trump supporter asked me on Facebook, “Why do you care about Trump. You can’t vote. You live in Argentina.”
For the record, yes. I live in Buenos Aires. But I’m still an American citizen. Despite pinhead Trump supporters who believe an American can’t vote if they live outside the country, I can vote.
And I did vote. Not that it’s anyone’s business. I voted for Bernie.
Trump supporters have engraved their place in history as individuals who our descendants will look back upon with disgust and shame because you were ignorant enough to support one of the worst presidential candidates in United States history.
