Trump Dating looks like the latest iteration of a similar site, Trump Singles, although the former seems to be slightly, SLIGHTLY less catfish-y. The fact that these dating sites exist is somewhat old news, but what’s interesting and perhaps tragically predictable is the kind of people one stands to meet on these platforms. How would you like to date a man convicted of having sex with a minor? Trump Dating has you covered. What else would one expect from a site dating to the minions of the Pussy-Grabber-in-Chief?
One of the men prominently featured on Trump Dating was previously convicted for videotaping himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 25. William Barrett Riddleberger posed with his wife of 22 years Jodi Riddleberger, donning his and hers “Make America Great Again” hats for the site, although their photo has since been taken down. PS: His wife is not the girl he raped.
“I’ve already paid my debt for something I did 25 years ago,” Riddleberger told a local news station. Riddleberger’s wife is the founder of the Conservatives for Guilford County PAC based in North Carolina.
Anyway, as per the Trump Dating site, the platform is “wrecking the dating game and giving like-minded Americans a chance to meet without the awkwardness that comes with the first conversation about politics.” Wrecking indeed, Trump Dating. Naturally, the site is only open to heterosexual daters, and it lets you describe yourself as “happily married” or “unhappily married.” Gross.
