Why a Trump-Backing Tow Truck Driver Says He Refused Service to a Sanders Supporter
Ken Shupe responded to a woman who was stranded on an interstate in NorthCarolina on Monday. Shupe is a tow truck driver; the woman had been involved in a wreck, according to reports.
But when Shupe arrived, he noticed something about the woman’s car — specifically, he noticed that the woman was a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, according to Fox Carolina.
“Every business dealing in recent history that I’ve had with a socialist-minded person, I haven’t got paid,” Shupe told the station.
He added: “Every time I’ve dealt with these people in recent history, I get ‘Berned.’
“With an ‘e,’ not a ‘u.’ ”
So Shupe refused to tow her.
“He said ‘I can’t tow you, you’re a Bernie supporter,’ ” the woman, Cassandra McWade, told The Post on Thursday. “And I was like, ‘Wait, are you serious?’ ”
