A North Carolina tow truck driver who refused to help a Bernie Sanders supporter offered her some advice instead.

When Kenneth Shupe arrived to help the woman stuck on the side of the road on Monday, he notice the political stickers on her car. Shupe concluded that she was “obviously a socialist” and advised her to “call the government” to tow her car, he told Fox 10.

“Every business dealing in recent history with a socialist minded person I have not gotten paid,” he said. “Every time I deal with these people I get ‘Berned’ with an ‘e’ not a ‘u.’”

He said he will not do business with Sanders supporters.

“I respect their beliefs, and I hope they respect my views,” he told Fox 10 on Wednesday.

But the woman who he left, Kelle McWade, apparently does not respect his views and she said so on Facebook.

Heads up, friends…. Cass had a wreck in Asheville yesterday. She is fine, but the car was not driveable. We called our mechanic who was tied up in Easley at the time, so he sent ShupeeMax Towing to get her. Kenneth Shupee drove from Travelers Rest to Asheville, hooked up her car, and when he went around to the back, he came back and told her that he wouldn’t tow her because she had a Bernie sticker on the back of the car. HE LEFT HER ON THE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE IN NC, and DROVE AWAY. Spread this bigot’s story far & wide. Btw, I’m guessing he’s a Trump supporter. The only difference is that the Don would have taken the money, because he at least realizes that liberals’ money spends just the same as anyone else’s. Dumb (expletive) cost himself money driving all the way to Asheville & back for nothing. (Expletive).

Greenville Attorney Steve Sumner told Fox 10 that he doesn’t “believe any laws were broken” because political affiliation, unlike race and gender, is not a protected class.

“As long as there is no contract between the driver and the tow truck company then there is no legal obligation for the tow truck company to pick her up,” he said.
