WH Defends Trump’s Grocery ID Claim: You’ll Need It If You ‘Buy Beer And Wine’
The White House defended President Donald Trump’s cryptic assertion that an I.D. is necessary for purchasing groceries, telling reporters Wednesday that Trump was talking about buying alcohol.
“If you go to a grocery store and you buy beer and wine, certainly you’re going to have to show your ID,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said when asked about Trump’s comments from the night before at a rally in Florida. She said he wasn’t talking about himself when he made the comment because Trump doesn’t drink alcohol.
“I’m pretty sure everybody in here who has been to a grocery store that’s purchased beer or wine has probably had to show their I.D. If they didn’t, then that’s probably a problem with the grocery store,” she said.
Trump has been criticized for being out of touch since he made the comments on Tuesday night. A reporter even opened the line of questioning by asking “When was the last time the President went to a grocery store?”
(That was a stupid question by this reporter – what difference does it make when he went to the grocery store – he was talking about the purchase of beer and wine. Another airhead. Does the President have to draw you a picture for you to understand?)
Trump defended his push for voter identification policy to prevent voter fraud by claiming on Tuesday that people need a photo I.D. to buy groceries.
“If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID,” he said Tuesday. “You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture.”
In addition to wine/liquor:
If you go to the doctor, on the first visit, they ask for your drivers license ID/thumb print for their files. If you cash a check, checking in at the airport, voting, loan, buying or renting a home requires a drivers license photo ID. By request, all of my credit cards require my drivers license/photo ID. I am sure there are many more.
These liberal people just try to make life difficult for anyone. They just don’t think. They don’t put their mind in gear before they speak.
