Liberal wears Obama shirt in Texas town that voted 80% Trump; gets SHOCKING reception

Michael Skolnik decided to do a minor social experiment when visiting Texas. Skolnik, an entrepreneur who was formally a campaign surrogate for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election, decided to wear a shirt bearing the famous Obama “HOPE” photo around a small Texas town where 80 percent of the citizens voted for Trump.

When the media makes it sounds like everyone is politically at each other’s throats, what kind of reaction did he get? Read his account below:

In other words, exactly what you would expect. Despite the characterization of conservatives as the intolerant ones by the media, does anyone truly think that such an experiment would’ve gone the same way had Skolnik worn a pro-Trump t-shirt in a city like Berkeley, or New York City? In the latter case – we don’t even have to wonder.
