Following the 2008 financial crisis, the billionaires who caused the crisis reaped government funded windfalls, while the middle class and poor tightened their belts. That’s Obama’s legacy.
Silicon Valley skews strongly Democratic, but the party is not a great fit for them. Silicon Valley is liberal on social issues, but opposes government regulation of business.
Small-government conservatives and libertarians are an odd marriage within the Republican Party. They seem similar at first, but small-government conservatives are ok with the government regulating people’s sex lives, and they’re fine with making the US a Christian nation. When libertarians allied with the Republican Party, they made a decision that property rights were more important than other individual rights.
A message from Devan Cierra Ebert, who other attendees confirmed to be the mother at the Ashburn rally, was shared on Facebook. In her statement, she said, “Mr. Trump NEVER kicked me or my child out of the Briar Woods High School, Trump rally.”
“The media has severely blown this out of proportion and made it out to be something that it wasn’t and is clearly using this as political gain for the Democratic Party. I hope this message sheds light to what really happened,” she said.
No one from the press spoke with the mother before running their stories, and if they did, they would have learned she is still a vocal Trump supporter. “I fully support Mr. Trump,” the statement reads.
She says she’d already left the rally voluntarily when Trump made the comment about kicking her out, and she understood him to be joking.
