A Washington State woman says she left her husband of 22 years because he voted for President Donald Trump.
Gayle McCormick said she was stunned when, during a luncheon, her husband Bill announced that he was voting for Trump in the primaries, Reuters reported.
“My jaw kind of dropped, and this was before the primaries, so it wasn’t even known yet who was going to be the nominee, and I didn’t speak for the rest of the luncheon and we didn’t talk about it,” McCormick, who described herself as a “Democrat leaning toward socialist,” said.
“I was incensed. I said, ‘I can’t believe that somebody I could be married to could vote for someone whose track record is so obviously poor in terms of civil liberties, his feelings about women, how he treats people in general,’” she said.
The former prison guard has since moved into her own place and is close with her ex and does not plan on getting a divorce.
“It really came down to the fact I needed to not be in a position where I had to argue my point of view 24/7. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life doing that,” she said.
Because how dare her husband have a mind of his own?
“I’m scared I have to find a new dentist. I have to find a new doctor,” McCormick, who backed Sen. Bernie Sanders, said. “Those are things that don’t seem like much, but when you’re 73 and you have diabetes and you’ve had a stroke, it gets scary to find new people and starting over.”
“I think that women’s rights are in jeopardy. I’m really frightened at (Trump’s) cabinet choices,” she said.
