On CNN, Trump Voters Recall Receiving Hate from Hillary Supporters

On Monday, CNN's New Day devoted time to Donald Trump voters who recalled some of the hostility shown to them by liberals angry at them during a segment on how Trump voters are reacting to the President. One man recalled being told he should have been "aborted at birth," with another who described himself as a "female impersonator" who recounted being "blackballed" by his colleagues.

During the segment which featured a group of six Trump voters -- with half of them expressing reservations about their vote -- one woman informed viewers that some of her personal relationships suffered because she voted for Trump.

Then, the Florida resident who works as a "female impersonator" described the strife he suffered in his life after announcing his support for Trump:

I come from a community that touts that we are so inclusive -- we are so embracive of what's different -- all we ask for is tolerance and equality. I make a living as a female impersonator in the state of Florida, and I have hosted all the major events from party for 20 years, 19 years.

He added:

When I came out as a supporter of Trump, I was blackballed instantly. They had online campaigns, got me thrown off of the committee -- I couldn't be the emcee anymore. I got death threats. I have lawsuits pending against people now. Oh, it's horrible.

Another voter who had reservations about his vote for Trump recalled that, after he tweeted out his regrets, liberals began harassing him for having voted for Trump in the first place:

And my phone starts blowing up with these just horrible responses. And they were responses were from liberal voters. ... would say something like. "You're figuring this out now, blankety blank," and, "We told you Hillary, blah, blah, blah." And I understand their frustration because, quite frankly, they never thought they were going to lose. 

He then recounted an abortion wish against him as he added:

My response back to them was, "I'm the voter that elected him, all right." I'm the swing voter in a swing state that elected him. If I'm having second thoughts, you should be saying, "Great, can you do tell other people -- here's why." No, it was, "Your parents should have aborted you at birth," just horrible things.

Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Monday, July 17, New Day on CNN

7:54 a.m. ET

JACKIE, VOTED FOR TRUMP: I received a lot of hatred from people I loved and respected that are -- were Hillary supporters or -- I didn't realize how much our relationship hinged on politics until admitting that I voted for Trump. I mean, I'm kind of callous to it now, but --

ALISYN CAMEROTA: What did they say to you?

JACKIE: Jackie, what's wrong with you? Are you okay? Are you -- are you crazy? Are you, you know, did you -- have you thought about this at all? Why would you do this? How could you do this to us? 

JAMES DAVIS, VOTED FOR TRUMP: Can you get back to hate about on the internet?

CAMEROTA: Yeah, quickly, tell me about what your experience has been.

DAVIS: I come from a community that touts that we are so inclusive -- we are so embracive of what's different -- all we ask for is tolerance and equality. I make a living as a female impersonator in the state of Florida, and I have hosted all the major events from party for 20 years, 19 years. When I came out as a supporter of Trump, I was blackballed instantly. They had online campaigns, got me thrown off of the committee -- I couldn't be the emcee anymore. I got death threats. I have lawsuits pending against people now. Oh, it's horrible.

CAMEROTA: John, tell us your experience.

JOHN MONTGOMERY, VOTED FOR TRUMP: Well, I'm on the fence because, you know, I think the presidency is an office of stature around the world. When Trump sent out the infamous wrestling gif, I sent a tweet to him. I just said at some point, "I'm starting to believe that I made a poor decision voting for you," or something along that line. And my phone starts blowing up with these just horrible responses. And they were responses were from liberal voters.

CAMEROTA: Why were liberals mad at you for questioning --

MONTGOMERY: -- would say something like. "You're figuring this out now, blankety blank," and, "We told you Hillary, blah, blah, blah." And I understand their frustration because, quite frankly, they never thought they were going to lose. My response back to them was, "I'm the voter that elected him, all right."

CAMEROTA: You're the swing voter.

MONTGOMERY: I'm the swing voter in a swing state that elected him. If I'm having second thoughts, you should be saying, "Great, can you do tell other people -- here's why." No, it was, "Your parents should have aborted you at birth," just horrible things.
