Young Trump administration staffers are having a hard time dating in Washington — one of the most Democratic cities in the country — according to a new Politico feature.
Both current and former staffers say they’re often berated by prospective dates online, or simply denied when someone finds out where they work or that they voted for the president.
“You do the small-talk thing, and you have a very good conversation, and then they might say, ‘You didn’t vote for Trump, right?'” one 31-year-old female administration official told Politico. “As soon as I say, ‘Of course I did,’ it just devolves into all-caps ‘HOW COULD YOU BE SUCH A RACIST AND A BIGOT?’ And ‘You’re going to take away your own birth control.'”
In one recent online exchange, a potential date asked her, “Do you rip babies from their mothers and then send them to Mexico?”
Another match on an dating app told her, “Thanks but no thanks. Just Googled you and it said you were a mouthpiece for the Trump administration. Go f— yourself.”
I guess these young people will have to console themselves by masturbating while constructing policies that steal food from the mouths of poor babies or separating Guatemalan kids from their parents. This is I assume how Steven Miller spends every day of his life.
