    I have had probably 3 discussions at a bar in the last year when Trump was brought up by strangers. All 3 times the people were about 35 - 40 probably and started bashing Trump because they saw him on the TV screen. I avoid bringing up politics to strangers at bars usually but will make a comment sometimes when I think the mess is over the top.

    What I have noticed is these younger people (well younger than me anyway) have no problem bashing Trump in public but will act like you are out of place if you say anything pro-Trump. One of the idiots even complained about me talking about Trump at the bar after they brought the subject up. The bartender had a good laugh afterwards after that. And these are your basic watering hole type bars in a town that is conservative. I can only imagine some of these other places now how it must be.

      Yeah I guarantee if something like this happened in a place like Starbucks there's video evidence. Who ever fabricated this bull **** story should of at least said chic fila.

        Do these people exist? I have no doubt. There’s plenty of stupid people in the world and the US is no different, regardless of political party.

        TYPICAL Trump Supporter??? That’s called “stereotyping,” which discredits the OP.

                Not happy to hear this type of confrontation with someone in uniform. That woman needs to reconsider her stance. A few thoughts:

                -The soldier was likely talking to family or a close friend who speaks Spanish as a first language. While I believe anyone wishing to live in the US should learn English (just like I should learn Japanese if I want to move to Japan), there’s absolutely nothing wrong with speaking Spanish in or out of uniform.

                -The woman said this action was “distasteful.” Let’s review a few things she did NOT do ( including but not limited to)-

                -Raise her voice to cause a scene.
                -Scream at the top of her lungs.
                -Call her names.
                -Get up in the soldier’s face.
                -Wag a finger <6” from the soldier’s face.
                -Drop a single F bomb.
                -Demand that she leave the establishment immediately.

                At least I didn’t see any accusations of the above. She gave her opinion. I don’t agree with it, but it didn’t sound like she was trying to be belligerent or confrontational.

                If only everyone in the US would take this approach instead of the childish behavior I listed, maybe there wouldn’t be as many twitter tornadoes on the interwebs.

                          You senile old libtard. You just prove my point. There is no video of him talking to the girls. You see what you want to see.
                          If the girls are "visiting" they eventually do have to go home. That's exactly how most illegals get here - by visiting and not returning. So the question not asked or answered is how long have then been here?
                          I will also point out the old Mexican bat threw two "I hate you"s as she left to which he replied "God Bless". Not exactly the Racist Rant that the lib media titled the video.

                            Have to add that I'm suspicious of how that video was edited. Doesn't seem to be how you would normally start and stop recording.

                            Actually, she may have been an illegal alien. They can achieve citizenship by serving in the military though.

                            Naturalization Through Military Service

                            Honestly, I don't know how this works bc I believe the military tries to require you to be a US citizen or resident alien. If you lie or steal an identity, I doubt it would be considered honorable service.
