Welcome back. Our next guest is a liberal who is going viral for reaching across the aisle to make new friends at a Trump rally.
I’m a liberal, and I went to a Trump rally to see if there was on the ground going in. I was expecting aggression, but I actually experienced a lot of kindness. Do you want to be friends?
I’m going to get a hook. Sure.
That last step was Holly, and she invited me to a woman’s Bible study. So I went, holly, hello, friends again. We experienced incredible kindness.
They’re a fun group of people.
Tik Tok user 100 new friends, aka Samuel Donner join us right now from La. Samuel, good morning to you.
Good morning. How are you doing?
I’m doing okay. Great to meet you. We saw this. We thought we got to talk to this guy. So the idea was you wanted to go to what you, as a liberal, thought would be a hostile environment, a Trump event. And how did that turn out?
It actually was much more friendly than I was expecting. Like, growing up in La. You think that these events are going to be very aggressive. And also, I was kind of just saying that I was a liberal, but I was absolutely baffled that people wanted to talk and would actually be friends with me when I asked one of my friends and they said, yes, that’s right.
So ultimately, I think what you found is that it is easy to find common ground with people you do not agree with politically, right?
Yeah, I think that’s what 100 new friends and jubilee are about. That’s the company I’m working with is we’re just trying to find common ground between humans. And I think at the end of the day, humans have a lot more common ground than we’re led to believe.
Let’s take a look. Here’s another clip. You trying to find common ground with more humans.
I am a liberal, and I’m trying.
To make friends at a Trump rally to see if there’s more common ground than I taught. Can I be friends?
I’m saying, what’s your name? Can you tell me about your shirt?
What does that mean?
Well, that means that we are very much against what our current socialist president is doing. We have a tremendous racial problem. We don’t have to be part of that. We’re not a part of that. We support people of all races. And so anybody that says that Republicans are racists is absolutely incorrect.
So, Samuel, after you made these videos have you told your friends, hey, I went to this Trump rally and people were friendly? And what has their reaction been?
When I was going over? They’re like, you’re going to Memphis, one of the homicide capitals of the world and of the country, and there’s a lot of gun violence over there, and then you’re going to a Trump rally on top of that, it seemed fairly scary. And I think that’s honestly what I wanted to test. Like, can I go into what I thought was the most hostile environment I could? But when I went, yeah, I told them it was actually fairly friendly. And I think, again, it’s just about starting those conversations. If you can start those conversations, you can actually understand where that common ground is, where it starts, and maybe where it ends. And even where it ends, you can discuss with each other, like, hey, let’s find that common ground.
But you’ve got to start the conversation. And that’s what you did by going there, I think, going in, Samuel, you probably thought, you know what? I’m going to ask 100 people. I’ll probably get two people who said, yeah, I want to be your friend. What? 49 out of 100 said, yeah, Samuel, I’ll be your friend.
Yeah. I was so nervous going in. Like, I had a pit in my stomach the whole time. And the Trump rally was the last day I was there, and I was just kind of talking to people around Memphis before that, before the Trump rally, I’m like, okay, no one’s going to want to talk to me. And there were a couple of people who did not want to talk to me, but overall, everyone was super friendly. And then Holly, in that first video that you showed, invited me to a women’s Bible study class out of the blue. She was so nice. And then I and my friend Malik went there, and again, just a ton.
Of empty Samuel, Donner, thank you for being our friend, sir, and joining us so early for me.
Yeah. Do you want to be friends? Yes.
That’s how you do it. All right. Thanks, Samuel. I’m Steve Ducey. I’m Brian Kilmer.
