Young Trump staffers complain they can't get a date in Washington D.C.
The best part about online dating is that there's infinite options just a click away. And the worst part about online dating is you might rejected for one detail. Somebody might swipe left because you're not tall enough, or you're not skinny enough, or you happen to work for the Trump administration.
Washington, D.C. is one of the most liberal cities in the world, and there's been a stark change of administrations. In the 2016 election, Donald Trump was elected president, with Republicans continuing to dominate the House and Senate. Millennial Trump supporters have swarmed to D.C. to be a part of the MAGA-lution. But these young staffers are discovering a common problem. They can't get laid.
In a new story published by Politico, frustrated Trump staffers vent about their dating problems. It turns out supporting an administration that cruelly separated migrant children from their parents isn't sexy.
"One beleaguered 31-year-old female administration official described at length her 'very, very frequent' scraps with her matches on dating apps. "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?''' she says. "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.’"
Some Trump staffers tried to hide their affiliation with a man who called for a "complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." But today everyone has an online profile, and it's only a matter of time before people discover the truth.
"Evasive answers will get you only so far, though, since many dating apps provide enough information for inquisitive users to sleuth out their matches’ identities. "I literally got the other day, ‘Thanks but no thanks. Just Googled you and it said you were a mouthpiece for the Trump administration. Go fuck yourself,’" says the official."
If they do manage to get a date, Trump staffers have to wait for the right time to "come out." That's kind of ironic, since the Trump administration failed to recognize Pride Month for two years in a row, rolled back regulations to protect LGBTQ workers, and attempted to ban transgender people from the military.
"I’ve still been able to hook up with women," says a male former White House staffer. "But I know that I need to be careful about broaching the Trump stuff. I just know that going in, I need to be able to get it out at the right time ... late enough in that eventually they know that there is this information floating out there that I worked for this guy and hopefully you have now seen that I’m not a horrible person and we can go further with this."
Wow, it sucks that Trump staffers are being discriminated against. Maybe one day Muslims, Mexicans and the LGBTQ community will be able to relate.
