Among the rising wave of paranoia since the election is this bit, one example of several, from the Washington DC area…
In an online ad for a roommate in Georgetown, 23-year old Sahar Khan wrote: “Alcohol, pets and meat products are not allowed…Neither are Trump supporters.”
In an interview she said she wasn’t being, as the interviewer asked “a bit intolerant”. She also insisted that she was not discriminating based on “political differences” and that she wouldn’t “drill” potential housemates on their political beliefs, she just didn’t want someone who supported Trump as a roommate.
One can only hope that the new national health plan that is to be proposed will have generous mental health benefits.
