Shannon Riggs and her cousins expected some push back from protesters when they attended presidential candidate Donald Trump's rally in Richmond Friday night. They did not expect what happened when they stopped for dinner on the way home.
Dressed in Donald Trump shirts and hats, the family walked up to the window at the Cook Out on Boulevard in Colonial Heights to order burgers and milkshakes.
"As soon as we got to the window, someone inside said 'Hell no! I'm not serving them,'" Riggs recalled.
After a few minutes of discussion behind the window, their orders were eventually taken.
"Everyone was laughing and giggling," Riggs said about the uncomfortable situation.
She said at one point, an employee yelled out an order was ready, but when her cousin went to the window to claim the food, she was told, "Oh not for you!"
"You should not be discriminated based on who you support, whether it be Bernie, Hillary or Mr. Trump," Riggs said.
That's all well and good, but no one had the decency to point out to them that they support a man who wants to ban Muslims from coming to the United States. And, in an unintentional moment of hilarity, there was this statement:
"Once you witness [discrimination] first hand, it's a totally different experience," the teenager said. "I was in a state of shock."
Whether or not these Trump supporters went home and slapped themselves on the forehead when they thought about who they support for president is neither here nor there. This is what America has become in the age of Trump--desperately stupid people with no self-awareness feel that they are being victimized because they support a racist bigot.
