McGruber: Both sides melting down

McGruber (RE: Do you enjoy Facebook political posts?): I've never felt the need to shout out on facebook my political beliefs but occasionally will "like" a post or comment from friends. This past year the venom and vitriol from friends on both sides has been very illuminating. The anti trump anti hillary posts have saturated social media. It always surprises me when one of the people I know in real life outside of facebook have so little self awareness about how much of a turn off these posts can be. There's a local realtor and a local public employee who have each been screeching ad nauseum for months about people who support a specific candidate. I'd probably use a different realtor for sure and just a matter of time before the guy who works with the public on the public payroll has a supervisor explain how it works.
