White Trump Supporter Yelling at Michaels Employees

Hundreds of people are showing support for the manager of a Chicago craft store who was loudly berated by a customer who claimed she was being discriminated against because she is white and voted for President-elect Donald Trump.

At the checkout counter, the customer is seen vocally proclaiming she was being discriminated against because the cashier was allegedly trying to "force" her to buy a $1 reusable bag for larger purchases.

Michaels says it does not tolerate discrimination against customers or employees and is investigating the incident. But as The Washington Post reported, "A witness said the man simply got angry that his coffee order took too long". This is only 10 minutes of the nearly 45 minute ordeal this woman put the employees of this store through.

"We regret that our customers and team members were affected by this unfortunate incident and are grateful for the leadership of our store team in working to resolve it without further escalation", the statement read.

"You're not going to give me some sort of liberal lecture about who's a human", the customer continues in her rant. "I was just discriminated against by two black women".

"I voted for Trump - so there. And look who won!" Early into the video, the unidentified white woman can be heard saying, "and I voted for Trump, so what?"

Grady, for her part, started a GoFundMe page on the store manager's behalf, which began with a $400 goal but had raised $5,827 at time of publication, to "do something to try to make it up to the employee who was the main target of this racist attack".

It all apparently began at a Michaels store in Chicago when the woman was checking out the day before Thanksgiving.

Certainly, many Trump's voters do feel emboldened in a sense, having just been granted a kind of white tribal validation by his election amid their anxiety over America's growing multiculturalism.

She then accused the woman's toddler of stealing - a clear sign of her mental stability.

"You screamed at me from across the store like you were in your own living room.you're an animal!" the customer yells at an African-American cashier at a Michaels store in Chicago. "Her actions are - and the fact that this behavior has been normalized is unacceptable", Grady said.

Grady started a GoFundMe campaign on the managers behalf, explaining that she was hoping to brighten things up for her after she took the brunt of the tirade. Her calmness calmed me and I saw a true leader, which in today's world, is something to be rewarded.

When Grady asked the woman why voting for Trump was relevant here, the lady complained about how "people are ganging up on me" and other Trump supporters across the country. Grady said dispatchers only sent help when she said the woman needed medical help, which, Grady assumes, might have been a good idea.
