Fmr. Campaign Aide Is Tired of ‘Liberal Intolerance’ Ruining Dates — She’s Launching an App For Trump Supporters

Since President Donald Trump took office, multiple outlets have reported on the difficulty his supporters find in getting dates. On top of that, gender politics seemed to intensify while some said it was difficult — or flat wrong — to maintain a close relationship with someone who supported his administration.

The dating climate became so frigid for Trump supporters that CNN reported dating app users wrote in their profiles warnings like “swipe left if you voted for Trump.” “If you voted for Trump, swipe yourself off a cliff,” another said.

Emily Moreno, a former campaign aide to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), told IJR that one of her friends’ dates berated him at dinner after discovering that he worked in the administration.

Stories like that are what prompted Moreno to start “Donald Daters,” a mobile app where support for Trump is encouraged and shaming that support is prohibited.

“For many young Trump supporters, liberal intolerance has made meeting and dating nearly impossible,” she said.

“Support for the President has become a dealbreaker instead of an icebreaker. That’s why we created a new platform for Trump supporters to meet people without being afraid of talking politics.”

And for Moreno, tolerance went both ways. She told IJR that she welcomed both Republicans and Democrats to her app, but wouldn’t tolerate people harassing others for their beliefs.

“It would be hypocritical for me to say that only Trump supporters could be on [the app],” Moreno said. “I wish that we could just communicate and be a part of the daily dating scene, but the left has forced us into a corner.”

Harassing users, Moreno said, could result in removal from the platform. While Moreno valued tolerance towards all political stripes, she specifically mentioned preventing left-leaning individuals from using the platform to harass Trump supporters.

She created a system whereby people could block offending users, and if at least two people blocked any particular user, the platform would remove the blocked user and not let them back on until after completing a review process.

The app, available on the App Store, offers an engaging interface that not only matches potential partners, but highlights activity within users’ communities as well.

While the app is free, some of the features require credits or a premium subscription which ranged from $9.99 per month for a year to $12.99 per month for a six month period.

Moreno said people have already told her the app made a big difference for them. The fact that people needed her app seemed to reflect the heightened political tension polarizing people around the nation.

As IJR previously noted, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing seemed to make politics especially personal as many left-leaning women saw his appointment as a threat to their rights.

“Divorce your Republican husbands,” feminist writer Jill Filipovic wrote as the Senate prepared to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination last month.

Similar dating sites have popped up either in favor of Trump or focused on other things in politics. Even Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) supporters got their own site called “Bernie Singles.”

“That is just projection of right-wing ideals onto liberals, again.” Just like people are being played about mobs, eh insipid? Or, do need to call it the “M” word like your favorite news? network does.

“For many young Trump supporters, liberal intolerance has made meeting and dating nearly impossible,” she said. That is just projection of right-wing ideals onto liberals, again.

Intolerance of what, though? Racism, mysoginy, biggotry, xenophobia, neo-naziism, wacko evangelism? Do you mean THAT kind of intolerance? Because that kind of intolerance is what is being used to stoke fear in conservatives.

I don’t know how you can post as often as you do on this site and yet still blindly apply those words to everyone and anyone who has voted for President Trump.

We talk with the same people and read the same posts and still? Really? There is no wiggle room in that?

You don’t seem to understand how a typical conservative brain works, what triggers it or how it can be controlled. Brains of liberals tend to be different than those in conservatives (look into the studies), so once you understand that and how conservatives get manipulated easily, you will see some of that I see. No, when I see nonsense, I will resist it. And there is a lot to resist here. While I lean liberal, I have voted for conservatives, in the distant past, but that was at a time when the majority of them were not batshit crazy, the… Read more »

Both parties manipulate their base with great success and ease. The topics and possibly tactics might be different but the anger and hysteria is the same.

Also, who you vote for is not an indicator on if you’re a garbage person.

There is no way that the anger or hysteria is the same. On the right, they are afraid, just afraid. Those on the left are repulsed by vial acts and terrible policies or legislation, things that conservatives are doing to others. The only similarity is based on the corruptive power of money in politics.

For some, who you vote for can be a big enabler, though. You see that clearly in Trumpov’s cult members.

Dummy Trumptards play the victim card really well. Go find your safe space cucks.

An unfortunate side effect when you rely on meeting people on an app vs going out and meeting people in person.

If you can pick all qualifications before a first date then it kind of ruins the possibility of learning about other, more important, qualities before political views come in.

You still don’t get it. They don’t want to face opposing ideals or views, or new ideas. That is not what a typical conservative of today does.

As mentioned below, this is their type of safe space.

I think you don’t get it. The article mentioned people stating to swipe left if you voted for Trump. So your statement of consevatives needing safe spaces is ridiculous when the liberals were asking for the same. It looks like there is plenty of people, both left and right, that don’t want to face opposing views. I am positive i could find plenty of dating apps geared toward liberals, this article just doesn’t mention them. My comment was about how that is unfortunate. If i refused to speak with conservatives simply because they were conservatives then I wouldn’t have married… Read more »

That’s your call. With today’s vocal / active conservatives the way they are, I just won’t put up with their nonsense. I rarely see a conservative that is rational, anymore. You are lucky. Fortunately, I have a non-political areligious mate, so we don’t have that kind of tension in our lives.

The app allows liberals to find each other, too, if I understand it correctly. It’s just that that was not the developer’s main theme.

I disagree with your statement that conservatives are not rational. However, maybe we have not met the same kind of people.

As i said below, there are several conservatives on this site that obviously voted for the president and are obviously good people who I just happen to disagree with. Which then goes back to my original post on this thread – its unfortunate people are unwilling to just talk to eachother vs. cherry picking traits you only want to be exposed to.

Consider it one of my first ever “i don’t get younger generations” comments.

I wouldn’t consider myself young in age (mid-60s), but I do consider my attitude young. As you may have noticed, I will discuss topics with anyone in a reasonable manner, if I see that they are being reasonable, but if they post nonsense like a true Trumpian cult member, my tolerability level drops to zero quickly. Yes, some, probably the majority of conservatives are decent people, it’s just that the vocal conservatives seem to be the nasty ones. Others have observed that they tend to be older which is also borne out by some avatar pictures here and interviewees at… Read more »
