If you’re going to be childish enough to risk your business because your candidate didn’t win the election, at least be smart enough to consider the demographics of the area you’re attempting to punish with your actions…
An owner of a propane dealership in Maine is refusing to deliver gas to anyone who voted for President-Elect Donald Trump.
Michael Turner, owner of Turner LP Gas in Skowhegan, Maine, recorded a voicemail greeting that leaves little question as to his feelings for those in his community who supported Trump.
“Thank you for calling Turner LP Gas. If you voted for Donald Trump for president, I will no longer be delivering your gas — please find someone else,” the message states.
Turner isn’t the first person to refuse to do business with Trump voters — in late November, Mathew Blanchfield, CEO of an Albuquerque, New Mexico-based marketing firm, issued a statement saying he would no longer work with Trump supporters.
But unlike Blanchfield, who lives in a county that voted solidly for Hillary Clinton, Turner lives in a county that overwhelmingly supported Trump. Trump won Somerset County, Maine — in which Skowhegan is located — 57.73 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 35 percent.
In Skowhegan specifically, where Clinton performed better than Somerset County at large, Trump still received over 50 percent of the vote and had a 10-point lead on Clinton, according to rough figures published on Skowhegan’s town website. Turner is apparently so distraught over Trump’s win he is willing alienate more than half of his community and possibly sacrifice his livelihood. –Lifezette
