If you are looking for an apartment in Colorado, this might be the answer for you — as long as you aren’t a Donald Trump supporter.
“For rent: Downtown apartment, 2 bedrooms. Includes organic garden space, hot tub, great backyard. You can bring your dogs if they have references as good as yours. If voting for Donald Trump, do not call,” Mark Holmes wrote in an ad for his apartment in the free newspaper “The Nickel.”
He told The Daily Sentinel that he wanted to protest the fact that Trump might become president.
“I don’t know what to do anymore about what’s going on in this country,” Holmes, who said he has received several angry voicemails since posting the ad, told the Sentinel. “It’s just a mess.”
He said he does not want anyone who shares Trump’s views to live in the house with him.
“He’s preaching hate and he’s preaching … a lot of venom, spit and vinegar. And I live in the top part of the house,” he said. “I don’t want anybody that even thinks that Donald Trump can be a good president to live in my home.”
And if you are thinking it’s illegal for him to discriminate against Trump supporters, think again.
“That has nothing to do with the Fair Housing Act,” HUD spokesman Jerry Brown told the Sentinel. “But that seems to be a first, and it’s original.”
