8. Watch the damn clip before you rip him.

Not one chance Bob kuylen voted for trump. Farmers union organizations are the best resistance entity there is in red states to trump. Additionally, they are the only ag organization that is solely focused on family farm agriculture, corporate farming be damned. Check them out.

9. I didn't rip him

So "read my damn post" before you accuse me of it. I shared the story without comment. Lecturing and admonishing me for something I didn't do is not cool.

7. He did not vote for MF45. fyi

A farmer of 40 years' standing, Kuylen did not vote for Trump in the last election. He said that those in the farm-belt who did back Trump in 2016 would be foolish to do so in 2020.

"If he doesn't lose 100 percent of it from the farm belt then people are kind of crazy because this is not going well for farmers at all," he told CNN host Don Lemon (via Grabien.)

10. I didn't even remotely suggest that he did.

I did not post this as "TRUMP VOTER GOT SCREWED."

I posted the tweet, as is, without comment.

12. Oh, understood, Miles - apologies, was just putting this up for "general consumption"

Again, I'm so glad this man is making it clear just how devastating the occupant's actions really are -

--between these farmers' terrible plight and a potential lack of help harvesting crops (I'm picturing oranges in Florida, for example, or cabbages in California), one of these days could bring us food shortages that may shock the hell out of us -

...and for no good reason, is the thing of it

...he'll probably lose there too...

...hand in there, Bob...
