Brace yourselves, folks. You’re about to witness a video that is peak-level awkward to watch.
Belgium-based writer and Hashtag Roundup host, Nico, shared a video taken at a Women For Trump meeting. The video shows the women waving signs around and chanting Trump’s name repeatedly.
That’s awkward and uncomfortable enough, but this is one of those videos that just gets worse the longer you look at it. There’s just so much going on.
First, there’s the noticeable … um … “homogeneous nature” of the crowd. They’re pretty much all middle aged/older white women.
If you squint really hard there does appear to be one older woman of color towards the back of the room and there is one younger-looking woman towards the front. It’s like if someone brought a Trump demographic popularity chart to life.
The lack of diversity is something you want to find shocking but just… don’t.
Next, there’s the total lack of genuine enthusiasm. Chanting in general is a little odd, but it happens at almost all rallies in some way or another.
We’ve just never heard less enthusiastic “woo”s before.
We’re going to be honest … the whole thing is a little Stepford Wives-esque. Combine that with the fact that Trump has a terrible record when it comes to actually working for women’s interests and you get total Twitter roast-fest fodder.

Twitter absolutely went in on these Women For Trump.
What do you suppose would happen if you said “Diversity” out loud 3 times at any Trump rally? pic.twitter.com/NINWOBXpUG

Those women don't mind being 2nd class humans as long as black and brown people are 3rd. That's the Trump white women mentality. I hate it. My mom's 75 years old and thankfully despises Trump. To these women… #EverythingIsAllWhite

I kept thinking, 1) how many have had abortions, 2) how many use it will need Medicare, 3) purchase products with massive tariffs on them? They are cult followers with no ability to see the destruction Trump brings. Sad.

Only a handful under 50, sigh…
Fellow older white women, why do you disappoint me so?

Or, as someone else put it, the trees cheering for the axe, because its handle is made of wood, and they sense a kindred spirit.

Overall, people seem pretty convinced that this video is at least an 8 out of 10 on the cringe scale.
