Lifelong Dem Attends Trump Rally And Writes Viral Column

Karlyn Borysenko is an organizational psychologist who just so happens to be a lifelong Democrat. She admits to the fact that she always saw Trump supporters as “racist”, but that all changed when she dove head first into the world of Trump at a New Hampshire rally last week.

And while she didn’t “convert” into a Trump supporter overnight, she says her experience has left her believing that the Democrats have no shot to win in 2020.

I think the Democrats have an ass-kicking coming to them in November,” she writes towards the end of her column.

“And I think most of them will be utterly shocked when it happens, because they’re existing in an echo chamber that is not reflective of the broader reality”

Leading up to that bold statement, Borysenko tells an enthralling story about how she ultimately decided to attend a Trump rally and see the phenomenon for herself.

Her piece, titled “After Attending a Trump Rally, I Now Know Democrats Have No Shot in 2020“, has gone viral on Twitter.

“If you had told me three years ago that I would ever attend a Donald Trump rally, I would have laughed and assured you that was never going to happen. Heck, if you had told me I would do it three months ago, I probably would have done the same thing,” she wrote.

However, through an interesting chain of events, she found herself in the midst of tens of thousands of jubilant Trump supporters:

I headed over an hour and a half before the doors were scheduled to open—which was four hours before Trump was set to take the stage—and the line already stretched a mile away from the entrance to the arena. As I waited, I chatted with the folks around me. And contrary to all the fears expressed, they were so nice. I was not harassed or intimidated, and I was never in fear of my safety even for a moment. These were average, everyday people. They were veterans, schoolteachers, and small business owners who had come from all over the place for the thrill of attending this rally. They were upbeat and excited. In chatting, I even let it slip that I was a Democrat. The reaction: “Good for you! Welcome!”
