Not only is President Donald Trump doing a fantastic job of destroying America’s society, he is also destroying lives on a micro scale. A story recently broke about a marriage of 22 years which dramatically ended after a wife divorced her husband when he disclosed to her that he was supporting Trump’s candidacy.
Gayle McCormick, 73, from Washington, is a retired prison guard. She said she felt compelled to leave her husband once she found out he was voting for Trump. She said she knew that his political ideology leaned to the right, but she never dreamed that he would be Trump supporter. She, in part, said:
It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump. It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger.
McCormick’s husband refused to comment on his marriage ending when contacted by reporters, but he was cordial and told them to have a Merry Christmas. There have not been many stories about marriages ending due to political affiliations in the news recently, but this tale is surely not the only one to have transpired in the last few months. The American lines of battle have been drawn and the fight for sanity and reason has only just begun. It is unfortunate to see a marriage end due to differences in political opinion, but it does make one wonder how a husband could support Trump and all of his horrible behavior and treatment towards women.
