I was listening to a radio show and I couldn't believe what I heard. According to the caller his sisters have not spoken to him in six months. All because of supporting Trump. Not only that they will not allow him to see his nephews. In my life time i've never seen such hatred for a presidential candidate. And a lot of I blame on the main street media.

They are doing him a favor. He should cut all leftists out of his life and he'll be much happier.

They're probably treating him that way because Trump didin't treat women as good as Bill & Hillary Clinton.

Not ostracized but people have been questioning me how a female immigrant like me could support Trump. When I ask them reasonable questions like - would you keep refugees in your home, are you fine paying double premiums for healthcare, are you willing to ignore issues like BLM/cop assaults, do you want to pay higher tuition costs for your kids,..... in short, how far are you going to put others' needs before your own? If you cant ignore your own & your family's well being then vote for Trump & Republicans at local, state & national level. But if you are a depressed, delusional, ignorant fool then vote for dems. We get it. We cant fix stupid.

My friends & family quickly change topics as they cant argue with me. I am not disrespectful but I 'bait' them with these questions & make them question their beliefs. I have exceptional debating skills & I use them. Dont get emotional or disrespectful. Always stay cool, well informed & use simple examples that the simple-minded can easily relate to in their lives.

I have family members who support Trump.

I don't treat them differently.

However, I've been sneered at in the past for voting Democrat. They're not sneering this year because I don't support Clinton either. I get a little of the "you're wasting your vote" or "a vote for third party is a vote for Clinton," but I don't care.

If you can separate the 'republican' from 'democrat' you'll be much better off. Trump isn't a 'true republican' he's got a little of both in him, so a vote for him is essentially a better democratic option than Hillary. He's a democrat with morals and a backbone and will actually help the public rather than pandering to them for votes and then saying 'see you in 4 years suckers'

Nope. My friends and family members are not drama queens. I have many liberal friends, we respect each other's boundaries and personal choice.

Just the other day, I read a comment on another forum, a poster said "I immediately unfriend him after finding out he is a trump supporter." I am like... ok... drama queen alert.

My opinion of Trump is based on the words that come directly from his mouth.

actually most of my family are all democrats voting for Trump, after years of being ostracized by that side of the family for being conservative they are finally starting to come around.

This poor guy is just now seeing the truth about liberals, they are all about free speech and having your own beliefs as long as they fit with what their speech and beliefs are.
