Trumper Supporters starting to break down on my Facebook feed [View all]

I have a bunch of Trumper friends on Facebook that I intentionally didn't unfriend since I was curious if they would ever crack.

This morning one of them posted a link about the shooting and said that if there were people with concealed guns then some of the 5 victims would be alive. I first stated the fact that the police were there in about 2 min and were able to take care of the situation to save lives. I also added that her "what if" scenario has cannot be proven and to not state this as a fact. I added in a "what if" scenario that how does she KNOW that there was not someone in the building with a concealed gun and if there was how does she KNOW that they didn't freeze and not know what to do in those few min before the police got there.

A few hours later she responded and APOLOGIZED, that she didn't know they responded so fast and said her only fear is that Dems want to take the 2nd amendment away. Someone else responded to her to not apologize for stating her opinion but saying that the first step for solving problems is to be open to discussion.

Last night a different Trumper posted a tweet from Dinesh D'Souza (which I can't remember what it said it wasn't important) but someone responded to her that they were SO SCARED of the Blue Wave and that they feel like it is hopeless there is nothing they can do about it since there are so many angry DEMS and there is no way they can beat the Blue Wave. The original Trumper responded to just be sure to vote and drive people to the polls and then if by some "miracle" they beat the Blue Wave then just pray to God to save them.

I just found all of this to be very interesting and gave me even more momentum to keep doing what we are doing and keep fighting every day!

Have any of you seen anything similar in your encounters with Trumpers?
