Here’s Why a Tweet by Lone Conservative Founder Kassy Dillon Caught President Trump’s Attention

Lone Conservative founder and former Daily Wire staffer Kassy Dillon went viral over the weekend for suggesting the following.

She half-jokingly tweeted, “Here’s the thing: I’m voting for Trump but I wouldn’t be friends with Trump. I’m not voting for Yang but I’d definitely be his friend.”

Dillon, who is a current graduate student at Pepperdine University, was referred to as a blogger by outlets like Fox & Friends and New York Daily News.

Here’s her appearance on Fox & Friends this AM:

I’ve known Kassy since her early college days at Mount Holyoke College in western Massachusetts and she’s far from just being a blogger. Don’t let her young age fool you: She’s an entrepreneur of sorts and a serious political commentator wise beyond her years. Check out her new podcast, The Kassy Dillon Show.

President Trump caught whiff of Kassy’s tweet and then tweeted, “I’m OK with that!”

Fox & Friends discussed the tweet at length:

Why is Kassy’s tweet related to current political discourse? The answer is clear: many people may not like President Trump’s temperament or all of his views feel but compelled to vote for him over any Democrat challenger. Many former Never Trumpers and Trump skeptical folks have expressed this sentiment—especially since the Left has peppered Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation with fake sexual assault accusations again.

Trump has said before that people may not like him, but they will vote for him because they strongly disagree with the Democrat agenda. Here’s what he said at his August New Hampshire rally:

“I had a business man the other day, one of the most successful guys in the country. I’ve never liked him, never liked him. He never liked me, I never liked him.

“I see him in the White House. I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ He said, I’m working to make sure you get elected.’ I said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding — you don’t like me, I don’t like you. What the hell is this all about?’

“He said, ‘That’s right, we’ve had our differences. I haven’t liked you, but to be honest with you, Mr. President, I have no choice.’ I said, ‘You’re right, you’re right. First thing I’ve ever heard him say that I agreed with. He’s got no choice.’”
