A teenage TikTok user known as “100NewFriends” spoke with Fox News this week about his experience at a Memphis, Tennessee Trump rally.
The young man, Samuel Donner, talked with Fox anchor Steve Doocy about how he was shocked to be warmly accepted by the Trump supporters he saw vilified as violent and angry by mainstream media.
“It [Trump rally] actually was much more friendly than I was expecting. Growing up in LA, you think that these events are going to be like, very aggressive,” Donner told Doocy.
Continuing, Donner explained he was “absolutely baffled that people wanted to talk and actually wanted to be friends with him” when he told them he’s liberal.
After being asked if he was surprised to make friends in a crowd of Trump supporters, the TikTok user said, “We’re just trying to find common ground between humans. And I think at the end of the day, humans have a lot more common ground than we’re led to believe. If you can start those conversations, you can actually understand where that common ground is.”
Donner also said some of his friends and family members thought he was going into a “hostile” environment.
However, he told Doocy, “Overall, everyone was super friendly,” and certain attendees of the rally showed him “a ton of empathy.”
This teen’s encounter with Trump supporters highlights the media’s incorrect stereotypes of conservatives as close-minded and violent.
Wait until the young man learns how divisive and aggressive the left has become!
