Donald Trump Says Americans Need a Photo ID to Go Grocery Shopping! Wanker!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"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.
