Match has a term for this: the “love deficit.” And it’s more significant under Trump than it was during Barack Obama’s presidency.“Four years ago, after the re-election of President Obama, all areas – blue and red – had an increase in dating activity, showing that the ‘love deficit’ between liberals and conservatives is unique to this election,” Match said.
Cohen noted that the actress probably has the authority to speak on the matter of what it means to be a woman getting involved with the famously brash, narcissistic former New York real estate mogul and reality TV star.
In any case, the Emmy-winning actress described the date as a blind date, set up because Trump, now 70, was thinking of going to school at the University of Pennsylvania. Bergen said he called to ask if he could take her out for dinner, and he picked her up at her dorm. According to Bergen, it was a three-piece burgundy suit, color-coordinated to match his loafers — and his limousine.
Donald Trump explained his stance on gay marriage like this:"It's like in golf.
A lot of people -- I don't want this to sound trivial -- but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive.
For Bergen, that interaction took place years ago, when she was an 18-year-old student at the University of Pennsylvania.
The “Murphy Brown” star, 71, recounted the date while appearing Wednesday night on “Watch What Happens Live,” Andy Cohen’s late night talk show on Bravo, Us Weekly said.
“I think that’s true wherever you are, and for both genders. If you’re opinionated about him, you’re opinionated about him.” With some more open about politics in dating, some Trump supporters say they’re less inclined to talk about who they voted for.
“It really does suck,” said Alexandra Gonzalez, 22, who lives in Sacramento and voted for Trump.
“It tells me that people are valuing politics much higher as a preference than they were before. It’s another example of how massively our dating culture has changed over the past four years, partly because of politics and also because of technology.” Tinder allows people 500 characters to write their profiles. Since January, many are using that limited space to make it public how much they detest Donald Trump.
“Around the time of the election, we did see some people who would call out that they were Trump supporters, but since then, I don’t know if people necessarily need to say online that they support him – he’s the head of our nation whether you like it or not,” Davis Edwards said.
Bergen, who supported Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, appeared on the show wearing a “Free Melania” T-shirt.
