Donald Trump Says Americans Need a Photo ID to Go Grocery Shopping! Wanker!
"US President Donald Trump has been accused of being out of touch with voters after saying Americans need identification to go shopping.
At a rally in Tampa, Florida, he said: `You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID.`"
In 1992, when President George H.W. Bush was amazed by a grocery store barcode scanner the story went viral in the pre-internet age because it fit the stereotype of Bush as a rich old patrician out of touch with the lives of the common man.
It`s incomprehensible why Trump enjoys the fervent support of blue collar Americans, even though he doesn`t know anything about their daily lives, and could give a shit.
Trump`s executive orders and the bills passed by the Republican-controlled Congress have benefited corporations and wealthy individuals, and have damaged the interests of the working class.
But you wouldn`t know it by the enthusiastic response that Trump receives whenever he has a campaign-style rally. The morons even cheered him when he made his ridiculous statement that you couldn`t buy groceries without a photo ID.
Bush`s reputation as an out of touch politician was cemented by the barcode scanner fiasco, and he lost his re-election bid to Bill Clinton. Trump on the other hand may be full of shit, but he`s coated with Teflon, and he can get away with saying whatever nonsense pops into his head.
