Wife leaves husband of 22 years because he supported Trump

Gayle McCormick was with her husband for 22 years, but she's separated from him because he supported Trump during the election.

McCormick, a retired California prison guard and "democrat leaning toward socialist," said she was stunned when her husband casually mentioned during lunch last year that he liked Trump and planned to vote for him.

For her, that was a "deal breaker."

"It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump. I felt like I had been fooling myself.  It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger."

Their marriage hasn't been the only relationship to break up since Trumps run and win.  A Reuters/Ipsos poll of 6,426 people, taken from Dec. 27 to Jan. 18, shows that 16% have stopped talking to family member or friend since the election.

That edged higher, up to 22% among those who voted for Hillary Clinton.

13% of respondents overall say they've ended a relationship with a family or close friend over the election.

Wow...sounds like a bunch of pearl-clutching sore losers.
