Donald Trump Thinks You Need an ID to Buy Groceries for Some Reason

President Donald Trump isn't really known for understanding much about American life, but his latest ideas about groceries is truly bizarre.

Trump appeared at a rally in Florida Monday and during his speech began discussing why laws requiring voters to produce photo IDs are important. He then used grocery stores to defend his point.

"If you go out and you want to buy groceries you need a picture or a card — you need ID," Trump said.

Uh...that's not true. You can go into a grocery store and buy some apples without some clerk requiring you produce a photo ID. 

Clearly billionaire Trump hasn't purchased groceries in decades, which simply proves how out-of-touch he is with ordinary Americans, and probably why he shouldn't be president.

Of course this isn't the first time Trump's talked about voter ID laws. After losing the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election, Trump often stated he actually would've won the popular vote if it weren't for all the illegal votes for Hillary.

He's probably just preparing his argument for when he loses in 2020.

Proponents of the War on Drugs often claim that it's about keeping communities safe.

"I think what's critically important is that most Americans recognize that, inherently, our drug laws have never been about public health," Goldstein told Civilized.
