A 79-year-old woman is disappointed by the hate she’s feeling because of her political affiliation.
The woman asked us not to name her or show her face out of her deep concerns.
She said her Trump signs have been repeatedly stolen from her yard. However, it’s what she experiences on the road that is most concerning to her.
“As we are driving down the street, people honk their horns and shoot the bird,” she said. “And I feel as if I am being accosted, and my 15-year-old grandson does not want to ride with me because he says, 'Momma, you're going to get me killed.'"
While she was at work in Midtown Kansas City, someone went as far as to put what she called “an ugly sticker” on her trunk.
“The sticker called me a racist. I am not a racist,” she said.
A note was also left on her windshield.
“It was very vulgar. I will not repeat the words.”
She expects more from her neighbors and the people who pass her by. She hopes the hatred does not go any further.
“I don't want my grandson out on his bicycle for fear someone will hurt him and say, 'Oh look, there goes that boy that rides in that car.' And this is not drama, this is real."
