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.

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.
