Top Reasons Your "Apolitical" Friend Is Actually Just a Trump Supporter


Graphic by Ava Cruz and Chase Sutton / The Daily Pennsylvanian

We all know someone who is seemingly not as invested in politics as the rest of us. Maybe you tried to talk about the debate and they, fidgeting and uncomfortable responded, "What debate?" You can't help but think: is it REALLY possible that someone can be so apolitical? The answer is no, your "apolitical" friend is really just a Trump supporter.

Here are some common signs that your friend may in fact be a Trump supporter:

  • "Neutral phrases" like, "have you registered to vote yet?" "What do you want to do for dinner tonight?" and "Hey."
  • Defending Donald Trump using phrases like: "Biden's kinda old," "that first debate was a mess," and "I can't wait for the election to be over."
  • Wearing anything with the color red.
  • Attending Trump's alma mater, The University of Pennsylvania.
