A supporter of United States President Donald Trump recently tweeted about how his rival Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders emails for donation. While mentioning her friend, Amy Kremer, a pro-Trump activist urged her followers to check bank accounts of their children who might be donating $2.70 for Sanders' socialist campaign in the race for White House in 2020. She further quoted her friend who “busted” her son for supporting Sanders.
Parents, how many of u look @ your college student’s bank account?@BernieSanders is emailing them every single day & asking for a $2.70 donation.— Amy Kremer (@AmyKremer) February 14, 2020
It might be time to lock down their bank account.

There it is...— Amy Kremer (@AmyKremer) February 14, 2020
Your morning email from the @BernieSanders campaign.
If you want socialism, just chip in $2.70...all in the name of fairness.
Chip in your parents’ $$$ because that works too. 🙄 pic.twitter.com/KTd9vZAVsh
Apart from the criticising Kremer for supporting “someone like Trump”, a fresh wave of backlash was drawn towards her as netizens accused the activist of “curbing” the rights of children. One of the Twitter users also commented a sarcasm based on the independence of kids and called it a “tantrum”, while others also called her a “fascist”, "pathetic", and "disgusting".
So now we’re at the point where the right is trying to desperately beg parents to stop their adult children from donating to the political candidate of their choice— Bat'ko Anarkhiya (@batkoanarkhiya) February 14, 2020
Absolutely pathetic, totally hilarious, keep it up 👍
dang I hate when children assert their independence but not in line with my hyper-specific ideology so I have to have a tantrum on the internet trying to shame them— PROSPEROUS VOID CHILD (@Drakonskyr) February 14, 2020

When I was young we used to get busted for spending money on drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. This new generation is truly useless 😜— Jonny (@Jonny_Qi) February 14, 2020

they probably became a socialist because their parents are authoritarian helicopter parents who don't give their kid any privacy— Keifer? I Hardly Know Her (@DannyVegito) February 14, 2020
I hope they donate more
