to remain FB friends with a Trump supporter just to see what they post next?

So, as a matter of principle, I always unfriend people who "like" the BNP/Britain First type crap or who post anything racist. But I just don't want to unfriend an American friend and her husband who keep posting pro Trump stuff. It's like a car crash. I can't look away, no matter how awful it gets! I feel a little hypocritical but I just want to see how far the crazy will go. If they lose, (please God!), what will they post then?

I'm the same, I've unfriended a few Americans but not al who support Trump because I like to see what rubbish they post

Meh, I've stayed fb friends with an ex colleague who added me then tried to convince me my life would be improved by flogging forever living aloe Vera stuff, it's interesting that she never talks about the actual stuff, it's all about how great a lifestyle it is and how much money she's making, in increasingly crazy ways!

So YANBU - sometimes it's worth keeping some people for their entertainment value.

I wouldn't want to see crap like that on my timeline personally but if their presence amuses you it's your choice.

My cousin...
She is possibly bipolar
history of illegal drug use
menial jobs
doubt she's currently employed, though
dodgy looking husband
her 3 younger kids currently in care

She luffs Trump, hates HC. confused I'm trying to understand why.

I have a lot of US friends who were all for Trump before he became the republican candidate. Then it got serious and they suddenly went all quiet, no Trump posts in ages, it's very disappointing. sad All my liberal Bernie Sanders supporter friends are still posting lots of Anti Trump stuff.

I also have a few US Trump supporters on my Facebook. Some that really surprise me.

Yep, I have a fb friend who posts all sorts of reactionary nonsense and pass-agg memes, it's strangely hypnotic.

Also I clicked on this thread partly to see if claig had posted blush

I too am surprised by Trump supporters on FB not many I must say and equal Hillary ones.
But did you see program recently on it all - Many Muslims actually support trump AND Martin Luther Kings Niece supports him too shock i feel there is more too this than headlines.

I have done this. My finger hovered but I have to see the reaction in November. I have unfollowed though so my timeline isn't filled with the bull.
