According to Harper’s Bazaar, being married to a “Trump Supporter” is grounds for divorce. While most couples vow to remain in a marriage union “till death do us part,” Harpers contends that married couples who have become Trump adversaries face problems of a magnitude that are insurmountable.
“If You Are Married to a Trump Supporter, Divorce Them,” the Harpers headline declares. The article, published last week, attempts to make the case that people who don’t support President Trump should probably divorce a spouse that does.
Subtitled, “The unfortunate truth about being in a relationship with someone who supports Donald Trump,” the article makes its plea: “Supporting Trump at this point does not indicate a difference of opinions,” says author Jennifer Wright. “It indicates a difference of values.”
Wright lumps all Trump supporters together and says divorce will save a couple from years of therapy in which they never find common ground. According to Wright, it’s “fruitless” and “exhausting” to try to make a Trump supporter “care.”
Trump supporters, being “morally repulsive,” should not be tolerated by the more virtuous members of society, ostensibly those that do not support the president of the United States.
Disguising the vile suggestion of such a whimsical divorce with humor, the article does make some tongue-in-cheek assertions. For instance, Wright says, “So, while you may be able to convince your partner that there is a more efficient way to load the dishwasher, you will never be able to convince them that they need to care about people they are fundamentally uninterested in caring about.”
Wright believes couples who disagree on Trump will have to fight such battles as deciding whether police brutality is permissible.
“If one member of a couple believes the president should endorse police brutality and the other member believes that is balls-to-the-wall insane, that is not a disagreement you’re going to find common ground on.”
The writer concludes that it would be wise to find a partner that shares one’s view on the president – instead of trying something as futile as couple’s therapy – and simply abandon the marriage.
“And if anyone says that this demeans that sanctity of marriage,” the author writes, “just remind them the president they love is on wife number three.”
Some people have questioned how an article such as this saw the light of day, but since rationality doesn’t appear to be the driving force behind many liberals, the article, while disturbing, is surely not shocking coming from the source.
Last week, the wife of a Florida power couple has referred to President Trump’s election as the “straw that broke the camel’s back” in her relationship with a Democrat.
Appearing on Fox News anchor Jesse Watters’ show Watters’ World, Lynn Aronberg said she filed for divorce from her husband, Democratic Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg, after their difference of opinion over President Trump drove them apart.
Dave Aronberg has a staunchly liberal base, and they made their feelings clear about his wife’s visits to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Lynn said the “backlash he received from his far left base” eventually poisoned Dave’s feelings toward her, which was a mutual occurrence. She recalled being upset by her husband’s supporters “outside marching and rioting” at Mar-a-Lago, where she was staying.
“The conflict was too much,” Aronberg said. “It was basically the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
