So she’s going to get voters out by insulting them? Yeah, except it wouldn’t be the voters she likes.
A Toledo city councilwoman is defending herself after a meme she posted on social media calling red states “Dumbf—kistan” sparked outrage.
Yvonne Harper, a Democrat, drew backlash last week after she posted a map showing the states that voted for President Trump in the 2016 election labeled as “Dumbf—kistan” and the states who voted for Hillary Clinton labeled as “United States of America.”
She later deleted the post and said she she shouldn’t have used profanity to make her point, but explained she was only trying to mobilize voters.
“I was posting as a constituent,” Ms. Harpertold a local ABC affiliate. “My job is to get people out to vote, and that’s what I thought I was doing. Didn’t realize that I was gonna draw this big uproar.”
