In the run-up to this year’s Presidential election, Rob Connaire, aka Politicabbie, has found a way to take politics back to the people: Take a ride in his Main Line taxi, and he’ll offer you the chance to express your political views, on camera. As he says, “The average bear knows a lot more than politicians give them credit for. Neither my customers nor I have a $10,000 check in our hand, but if we band together a series of conversations, who knows what we could do?” The Citizen will publish Politicab’s videos, which will also be uploaded to YouTube. Maybe our electeds will take heed.
In this video, Afghan Army veteran Lt. Brian Farrell—himself injured in war—talks of feeling hurt by Trump’s treatment of the family of Army Captain Humayun Khan, killed by a car bomb in Iraq.
“I’ve sweat and bled for this country and I don’t think he understands what it means to sacrifice,” Farrell says, adding later, “You’re running for the country, every single piece of this country, every single person in this country. What are you running for if you’re going to downplay everything this country stands for?”
