Liberal dating service
And now, two online dating sites — Trump Dating and Trump Singles — have arisen to indulge one side of that growing divide.
The two sites brand themselves as exclusively for supporters of US President Donald Trump, but they're not quite the first of their kind.
Interestingly enough, the MAGA-themed site also gives you the option of labeling yourself a "liberal" or a "moderate liberal." The interests section — which doubles as the "attributes you'd seek in a date" category — includes some fairly standard boxes, like "movies/videos," "wine tasting," "fitness/exercise", and "nightclubs/late night." It also features "military men/women," "country western," "police/firefighters," and "single parents" as check-boxes.
But if you'd like to ask a fellow Trump supporter out for "covfefe," you'll have to drop some cash and upgrade in order to message them.
When you kick off the process of starting a profile, you get two options for labeling yourself — "straight man" or "straight woman." Yet according to Trump Dating's rather strange drop-down menus, married people are welcome.
For a relationship status, the site offers options like "have a significant other," "happily married," and "unhappily married." The ethnicity options also seemed oddly specific.
The Wisconsin Gazette reported that Trump Dating previously hawked its intent to "deport liberals from your love life," although that boast has since been taken off the front page.
Trump Singles, on the other hand, promises to "make dating great again," but doesn't include much messaging on its front page. Once you're in, it asks you if you're searching for "fun," "whatever," "dating", or pursuing a "like-minded friendship." The dating site boasts an expansive age range — you can hone in on suitors from ages 20 to 92.
It also asks you to define your body type as either "slim," "average," "athletic," "a little plump," or "big and lovely." Both sites were riddled with accounts that used cartoons or stock images as profile photos.
The dating game has become more political than ever.
A 2016 Tinder study found 71% of online daters consider political differences to be a dealbreaker.
