“Hi, my name is Kevin and I’m from Elmhust, IL, which is about 20 miles west of Chicago. In the 2016 presidential election, I voted for Donald Trump. In 2020, I voted for Joe Biden. In 2024, as it looks right now, I will be voting for Joe Biden. And the reason I can’t vote for Donald Trump is I can’t have an a****le be my president.

“My basic feeling on life is that I’m right-of-center. But just because I’m right-of-center doesn’t mean I believe all things Republicans say, nor do I believe in all things Democrats say. I just believe that people should have common sense, and I think that’s just the way it’s got to go. And again, I just can’t have an a****le be my president.

“I believe Donald Trump does things wrong. It’s all about him being a narcissist. It’s all about him and not about us. Our country’s divided, and I’m not going to say he’s the one who divided us, but he finished everything up: “We are no longer the United States of America. We are Republicans and Democrats. And we can’t do this.”

“I’m not really impressed with Joe Biden. I am concerned about his age, but I do believe that he is a caring individual and that he will do the right things for the United States.

“January 6th was probably the stick that broke the camel’s back. Not for me necessarily, but for the country. As long as we come out in November and vote for somebody who’s more responsible — if it has to be Joe Biden, it has to be Joe Biden, that’s fine — but we can’t let Trump get in there again. January 6th was a horrible day in our country, and it’s something that 20, 50, 100 years from now, our children, our grandchildren, our great-grandchildren will say, “How the heck did that happen?” And I’m going to say, “I don’t know.”

“I believe the the President of the United States has to go on both sides of the aisle. He has to talk to Republicans and Democrats, no matter which side of the aisle you’re on. And I believe Joe Biden has a chance to do that. Under no circumstances do I think that Donald Trump can work on both sides of the aisle.

“He’s a dictator. He admires Putin, which is the most idiotic thing. That’s why I don’t understand these people who support him. Don’t they realize that his main person he follows is Putin, who’s the leader of Russia, who is just a knucklehead. I find it abhorrent that people actually think that Trump is a good guy. I just can’t believe that.

“One of my friends, I was talking to her about a month and a half ago, and I was talking about the fact I can’t have an a****le be my president, and she goes, “Get over it.” No, I’m not getting over it and I’m gonna fight to the death to not have him in there. I just know that if Trump got in the office of the president, it would be a bad situation, and I hope to God it doesn’t happen.”
