Trump Supporters Are Basically Out-Of-Shape Crossfitters. Here’s Why.

In a recent ABC interview, potential Republican VP candidate Michael Flynn made it known he prefers the term “illegals” over “undocumented.”Way to take over the conversation, Flynn. The potential VP’s enthusiasm highlights one of the things I dislike about Trump supporters: They constantly force their dear leader’s beliefs on other people. Where have I seen this kind of behavior before? The only friend of mine that displays this kind of behavior isn’t actually a Trump supporter; he’s just really, really into Crossfit. Every time I see him, he tells me all about the cult of Crossfit and how great his life is because of it. The truth is, if you examine Trump supporters and Crossfitters, you’ll see a ton of similarities. Check it.

My friend in Crossfit has mastered the art of leading every conversation back to Crossfit.

Trump supporters talk about illegals and gun control the same way my Crossfit friend always brings it back to burpees and WODs.

My Crossfit friend and I don’t hang out as much because he’s too busy spending time with his like-minded Crossfitters.

You can see the same thing at Trump gatherings.

Crossfit is a pseudo version of a workout plan.

This must be why my friend is always complaining about how sore he is after working out.

Trumpism is a pseudo-version of a political ideology.

Crossfitters call this work out the “face kegel.”

You know Crossfitters are just working out years of repressed issues.

This well-adjusted young man seems fine!

Same is true with Trump enthusiasts.

This charming fellow is the VP Trump deserves.

Both insist that their way — the wrong way — is the right way.

If Trump’s wall is as sturdy as this workout contraption, I think we’ll be fine.

Both never shut up about how great their beliefs are.

Ugh.

Double ugh.

In the end, all your cultish qualities turn you into a cartoon character.

Clowning around

So have all the fun you want. Just don’t force your beliefs on me.

The Son Of A Texas Sheriff Was Caught Smuggling 14 Undocumented Immigrants

Like something out of the movies, the son of a South Texas sheriff has found himself on the other side of the law.

Eusevio Salinas III, 26, was driving in Dimmit County, Texas, when he was pulled over for a “routine traffic stop,” according to KENS5. After police approached the vehicle, they became suspicious and called for back up from Border Patrol. A quick sweep with a K-9 unit uncovered 14 undocumented immigrants crammed into a trailer attached to Salinas’ truck.

Salinas is the son of Zavala County‘s sheriff, who shares the same name. Zavala County is just an hour drive from Dimmit County. Multiple attempts by KENS5 to speak with the sheriff about his son’s arrest were denied. A reporter for the news station even went to the sheriff’s office to seek a comment, only to be told he was not there.

According to FOX29 San Antonio, it is not uncommon for police to chase and find undocumented immigrants in cars so close to the border. Smuggling undocumented people across the border to the U.S. has become a lucrative business, with smugglers making about $4,500 for each person they successfully bring into the country, according to Ruth Censieros, a chief deputy for Dimmit County.

“We see this everyday. It’s an everyday thing,” Ceniseros told FOX 29 San Antonio about the increasing frequency of undocumented smuggling. “We’ve encountered deceased immigrants plenty of times and it doesn’t make it any easier.”
