Now that Donald Trump is the GOP presidential candidate, voters are getting angrier — and we don’t just mean democrats! Republicans have been burning their party registration cards, and showing it off on social media! Click through to see the shocking evidence!
Holy moly, people do not like Donald Trump! The 69-year-old GOP frontrunner is now the Republican nominee for president after Ted Cruz, 45, and John Kasich, 73, dropped out of the race on May 3 and May 4, respectively. That’s left many republicans distraught that their own party could nominate someone like Donald, and they’ve made their anger clear by burning their registration cards! Click through to see it happen!
Some republicans feel so strongly about Trump becoming their nominee that they’re (literally) burning their ties with the party forever. Unfathomably angry GOPers took to Twitter to share pics, and video of their smoldering registration cards, sometimes tweeted directly to party head Reince Priebus himself! Guys, he’s already having a bad day!
It’s an incredible form of protest, over the fact that these citizens would rather change their political affiliations that see Trump enter the White House. They don’t want to be associated with that in any way! It’s unclear though, if this means they’re switching parties (seems unlikely), or just becoming independents. Are the feeling the Bern now, or just burning?

After a string of colossal wins, there was no mistake that Trump could secure the GOP nomination, and Cruz realized that after losing Indiana on May 3; Kasich, who only won a handful of states, followed his lead just one day later. GOP party members are absolutely devastated and livid, and it’s unclear what they’re going to do next. Contested convention? We’ll see!
