Burn Baby Burn: Angry Republicans Set Fire To Voter Registration Cards

The GOP is losing members since Donald Trump was declared the presumptive presidential nominee and people are burning voter registration cards to seal the deal.

Following Donald Trump’s big primary win in Indiana and his opponents’ subsequent drop-outs, anti-Trump Republicans are furious and all hell has broken loose.

The feeling of hopelessness among Republican voters is being expressed by members tearing, burning, and completely destroying their voter registration cards.

Several people shared pictures and videos of their damaged cards, some even directing their tweets at Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chair. Priebus is particularly receiving backlash for calling on the party to unite behind Trump.

Those who did not destroy their cards took another route and changed their party affiliation online. The hashtag #NeverTrump was frequently included in users’ tweets, making it clear their decision is in protest against the presumptive nominee.

When the presidential race first began with a group of 17 candidates stepping up to represent the GOP, no one thought that the real estate mogul and reality TV star would be the last one standing.

After a tumultuous battle between Trump and Ted Cruz, Trump sadly prevailed. America officially faces a terrifying reality.

Aside from the fact that Trump has displayed despicable behavior that is not at all presidential, he also lacks political experience. His foreign policy plans, alone, have been deemed reckless and dangerous by foreign policy veterans who tried to stop him in his tracks months ago.

If you thought the GOP was divided before, these drastic and desperate reactions to Trump’s nomination prove that the party is only going downhill from here.
