Aw, some shop owners in the Hamptons are afraid they will lose business if they reveal themselves as Trump supporters.

"We live in the land of the First Amendment but if you want to stay in business out here you have to learn to keep your opinions to yourself."

Newsflash: that's not an infringement on your rights. Refusing to use a business for political reasons (ie boycotts) is itself a legitimate expression of free speech.

Also I'm so sure they have to "fear violence" from the rich liberal hipsters who flock to Long Island every summer. I wouldn't want to be walking down a dark alley by myself with that kind of element around.  ::)

It was a funny article though. Kind of makes me want to take a day trip to ask some shopkeepers their opinions on Trump.

Ok then. I'd still like to know how specifically I offended you but if you don't want to talk about it that's fine.

Not to mention the President himself. We're so dangerous!

I hope they have increased the police presence in the Hamptons. With the dramatic uptick in violent crime they must be seeing they need to keep the poor Trump supporting shopkeepers safe.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/sen-scott-racism-accusations-against-trump-inconsistent-with-reality

So, it should never surprise us that any Republican is a hypocrite, but considering what he said just a few weeks ago, it's clear someone is now denying reality.

https://www.postandcourier.com/politics/sc-sen-tim-scott-calls-trump-s-words-racially-offensive/article_fd9f6238-a72b-11e9-9349-6f1b36a1a4ed.html

So President Trump is dividing the country with his "personal attacks" and his
"racially offensive language"... but to say he's racist is "inconsistent with reality".

Um, ok lol

I hate myself for hoping the economy tanks before the next election... but that's where I am now.  Any fucking thing that helps get him out.

Somehow I don't think Trump's base would be swayed if the economy collapsed. They'd just blame it on Obama and Clinton.

Well, at some point everything will collapse, of that there is no doubt.

But it has been that way over and over and over again.

And then, right back to the ways demonstrably proven to cause collapse all over again.

Weird article. While striving for an anti-Trump tone it actually offers the best justification I've seen for Trump's recent ICE raids. Obviously it's intended to point out the flaws in the meatpacking industry, but at the same time seems to suggest that it's issues were only exacerbated by their owners' fervor to replace legal American workers (forcing them out of jobs) with illegal immigrants. It was honestly an eye-opening piece in a way I doubt its author intended.

Where it falls apart for Trump I guess is that the logical conclusion is to target the owners as well, and Trump's just not likely to do that.
