The anti-Trump meltdown has become its own genre of blog post (see The Young Turks Post-Election Meltdown and Top 5 Anti-Trump Feminist Meltdowns). But this one from Western Washington University is fun to watch, makes you uncomfortable, then it’s fun again. If you’re still in bed, let this lady wake you up to the sound of seventy glass breaking sirens.
“Right here on the Western Washington campus, she’s going nuts with a Trump sign—she doesn’t like the Trump sign. She’s anti-Trump,” preacher Eric Bostrom can be heard explaining in the video, holding a sign that reads “Trump: Borders, Laws, Jobs, Liberty, USA,” and another intentionally-obtrusive sign containing shocking bible verses about judgement.
In the video, Bostrom claims that the woman screaming is “an art major,” and at one point in the video another woman who appears to be an administrator runs into the shot to ask the student if she is alright, to which the student replies “call the police, b***.”
The people coming to help her really sells things, especially the look on their faces when they realize why Screamy McScreamerson was screaming. Because contrary to popular liberal opinion, shrieking as if ISIS has lit you up like a flambé isn’t warranted over a giant sign with words. Shrieking is warranted for imminent danger, bodily harm, or hearing Amy Schumer. Not a sign with words. But we can be grateful she’s at least able to read. Little things.
There is a chance Bansheepuff is all performance art. This fits perfectly into an easily triggered, anti-Trump nutjob on a college campus stereotype.
More seriously, what will happen to Bansheepuff if she’s actually in danger? Will anyone run to help her, or just assume she saw a Pepe the Frog sticker on a lamppost?
Diaper wads like this woman is why Trump won, by the way.
