3. Thanks for sharing that!

Nice to see how truly committed some Trump supporters are.

5. For a lot of Trumpanzees, a pickup truck is an image thing, not a work necessity.

Where I live, I see these huge, aircraft-carrier-sized quad-cab pickup trucks with expensive after-market additions, no sign of any work equipment in the bed, and not a scratch on them.

These are obviously not working-class types who need the cargo space for work duties.

They all drive like jerks, and would probably throw a screaming hissy fit if their expensive paint-jobs got scratched...

8. I live in a very affluent area that has a lot of Trump supporters and MAGAs.

They all drive giant trucks (and the F-150 seems to be their vehicle of choice due to living in close proximity of a Ford dealership), and a lot of them have corporate logos as decals. I'm suspecting so they can have a write-off of their personal vehicle as a company expense so they can avoid paying taxes on said vehicle.

6. That's one thing I love about driving a non-descript sedan.

My Subaru can not only outrun giant trucks that are two - three times its' size, but I can easily maneuver around traffic and my all wheel drive can go on just about any terrain. I'm also not afraid to get it dirty either.

18. I just got a 2020 Legacy, it's awesome so far!

It's built on the same drive train as the 2020 Outback and it handles like a sports car does. Plus it has a really killer sound system as well. I also like the big screen for navigation and control purposes.

22. We test drove a Legacy, very nice!

She wanted an SUV for visibility, she’s short, like me!
The all wheel drive is a must during the winters here in WI.
Sound systems in Subaru’s and Toyota’s are by far superior to any “American made” vehicle imo...

24. I got the limited trim and it has a 12 speaker Harman/Kardon system.

And it sounds great. I previously had Nissans and the sound system was Bose, but it wasn't nearly as good as this.

25. Nothing better than listening to some good tunes while driving!

It’s a must!

Lived in LA for a couple years and it was always cool to see (or hear) other drivers on the 101 jamming with you to the same tune from a local “for the drive home” radio station.

Yes, indeed

26. Yeah no matter how bad life is right now, at least we have that!

Right now my favorite thing to do is go for a long drive and blast some good tunes. I miss live music but at least we have that right now!

27. I miss live music, only saw 1 concert this year...:(

Waaaaaay back in February which seems like 10 years ago.

To avoid all the teevee noise I listen to my playlists on my earbuds. Helps me cope...

28. My last concert was in March.

And I still can't believe that event happened. Especially since it was right next door to the NCAA tournament which did get canceled.

29. Ours was March 11...

We saw The Lumineers and it was the last event held at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. We were locked down a few days later. We also had plans in the works to see Joe Bonamassa at Red Rocks. Of course that was cancelled.

30. Mine was 311.

And it's their semi-annual 311 Day festival, it was my second time out there. It was so weird standing in the middle of the Park MGM hotel watching news of literally everything getting canceled. Yet my event still went on.

7. I think all the MAGAts in Texas are very proficient at backing their trucks into parking spaces...

they take pride in it I think. Maybe their heart just wasn't really in it?

9. My truck knows it's a truck.

It's got scratches and dents and all sorts of cosmetic issues. Because I use it as a truck. To do truck stuff.

16. Yeah, I try.

But I'm a pretty shitty driver. And don't even think about asking me to tow something. I'll do it, but I probably shouldn't.

23. My Dad farmed in central Illinois.

Our pickups looked like crap because they were used as trucks. Of course my family are democrats except for my brother who went to the military and came back conservative.

14. And somehow, Biden is the one that's supposedly have no enthusiasm for him.

But stories after stories that we are the ones braving the cold weather, rain, and long hours of wait to cast our ballots.

31. Well good! Now we know how to win that upcoming "civil war."

As I suspected all along, any minor inconvenience or physical demand like, you know, walking or standing, will stop them dead in their tracks.
