The website is called ‘Trump.Dating’. It offers options only for straight men and women, groups all Asians under one category, and features a convicted sex offender on its homepage. We bet Roy Moore is a total hit among this crowd.
Being a Trump supporter must make things particularly difficult when you’re dating. I mean, just the Muslim ban eats up of a sizeable chunk of your possible pool of matches. That border wall won’t settle in nicely among the Mexican community either.
Not to mention, I don’t think many Germans are too fond of being called “bad, very bad,”
Well, actually, that last thing might be appealing in some circumstances…
But anyway, the point is, the dating life must be rough if you’re wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat. So to help ease all that existential loneliness, singles in every red state must be pleased to hear there’s now a dating site tailored after all their ideological desires.
“We believe that by matching patriotic and political viewpoints as a base foundation of the relationship, it will allow one to focus on what really matters – conversation, commonalities, and if all goes well, courting,” said the Trump.Dating official website.
The dating site only offers ‘straight male’ and ‘straight female’ options when you’re setting up your profile. It has four ethnicity options to choose from when users identify as ‘White/Caucasian’, while it has only one category for ‘Middle Eastern’, ‘Black/African/American’, and ‘Asian’.
The site’s poster photo depicted a real-life couple from North Carolina; Jodi Riddleberger and her husband, William Barrett Riddleberger.
The couple are pretty active conservatives, having helped form back in 2010 the Tea Party-inspired “Conservatives for Guilford County” PAC.
At first glance – well, aside from the MAGA hats – there doesn’t seem to be anything particularly wrong with them. The thing is, News & Observer found out Barrett Riddleberger has a 1995 conviction for “indecent liberties with a child.”
Riddleberger, who was 25 at the time, was accused of videotaping himself having sex with a 15-year-old, according to the Greensboro News & Record.
After the news broke out, Trump.Dating removed the image from the website, replacing it with that of a generic stock couple, also featured in gum recession treatment ads.
