In what might be one of the most ridiculous stories we have ever heard, a tow truck driver in South Carolina refused to help a disabled and stranded motorist because she was a Bernie Sanders supporter.
And he credits God with the assist, “Something came over me, I think the Lord came to me, and he just said get in the truck and leave,” Ken Shupe of Max Towing told the reporter.
The disabled Bernie Sanders supporter he left stranded on the side of the interstate is named Cassy McWade. She got into a car accident and originally called her regular mechanic to drive the 45 minutes north to come tow her home, but unfortunately he wasn’t able to make it.
So he called Shupe and told him about the situation and allegedly informed him that McWade was disabled. The 25-year-old woman has arthritis, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and early-stage Crohns, which means being so far away from the restroom was something that terrified her.
With all this information, you’d think Shupe would have loved to help this woman. But no, when he arrived on the scene and noticed her Bernie Sanders bumper sticker, he decided to just leave her there.
“He goes around back and comes back and says ‘I can’t tow you.’ My first instinct was there must be something wrong with the car. And he says, ‘No, you’re a Bernie supporter.’ And I was like wait, really? And he says, ‘Yes ma’am,’ and just walks away.”
When he was questioned about the incident a week later, Shupe claimed he didn’t know she was disabled. But surprisingly, that wouldn’t have made much of a difference. He still wouldn’t have helped her.
“Had she been disabled, would I have towed her car? No ma’am. I would have pulled forward and sat there with her to make sure she was OK until another wrecker service showed up to get her home safely, but I still would not have towed her car. I stand by my decision, and I would do it again today if the opportunity presented itself.”
Ugh. Gross. You can tell how proud he is just by reading that quote. I bet he was wearing some awful “Make America Great Again” trucker hat too.
