A teen made a TikTok video of a conversation she had with her parents exposing the hypocrisy of many President Trump supporters who already have or are planning to re-elect him for a second term.
Faith (@faithashjuran) started her prank by apprising her conservative parents of her plans to go on a date with someone over the weekend.
Both of her parents sat on the couch across from their daughter – with the mother initially occupied with shuffling papers while casually catching up.
The parents were oblivious to being recorded for the conversation to come.

Faith began with an approving description about her date but then added a detail that caught the attention of her folks.
“Seems like he has a really good relationship with the Lord. He does have a few sex assault allegations though.”
When the mother appeared incredulous, Faith asserted:
“No, I’m serious.”
“Why would you date this guy if he has sexual assault allegations?”
“‘Cause there’s no proof!”
However, Faith was not finished with the conversation and added another bit of information about her date that would raise alarm.
“Also did a deep dive on his Twitter and he’s said some kinda racist stuff.”
Her father chimed in and expressed his disbelief.
“Why would you even consider this?”
Her mother added:
“With sexual assault allegations? That’s never good.”
This finally led Faith to make an important point for her social experiment and asked her parents:
“But you’d let a man like this run the country?”
Her mother scoffed and explained to her husband – who hadn’t caught on to what was happening – that their daughter was “pulling our leg…and pulling a Trump card. Seriously, Faith?”
Twitter had strong reactions to the parents’ dismissiveness.
Hey parents, guess what? Faith will be making decisions about your nursing home care. Might wanna start caring about what she thinks and feels.

Is this cognitive dissonance, or are they so brainwashed by evangelicalism they can’t think critically?

The mother couldn’t even acknowledge the racist comment.

Mind blowing that parents can 180 like that when you go from someone dating your daughter to the person deciding your daughters future…

Yup. It’s an interesting experiment because it proves that they only care if it directly affects them.

The truth of it doesn't even occur to them, though. They don't even catch a second's whiff of the irony. They just switch gears to "that's not the same; fake news."
That's why this is all so awful. That's why my parents are lost. That's why families are broken.
It IS a cult.

Hilarious how when she saud he says racist stuff on twitter, the parents first ask specifically what he said, (as if theres a difference) and then went immediately back to the sexual assault stuff.
And then.."shes playing the trumpcard."
Exactly how ignorant these trumpers are.

That look on their face the moment they realize they have been had. For a few seconds their cognitive dissonance has been overcome. They feel deep shame. They don't like it. So they bury it back down in like 2 seconds and brush it off as the daughter pulling a fast one.

Whether the message successfully got through or not, people lauded Faith’s fortitude in challenging her folks.
Faith nailed it. The massive hypocrisy expressed by her parents was infuriating.

What’s most impressive about this video? Is that this young lady is smart enough and can critically think enough to not be a default brainwashed GOP supporter even though show grew up in that household being influenced by this ideology. Her parents did at least one thing right.

Children are the future ! Good thinking 🤔 clever honest ❤️💯

If you ask me, the daughter beautifully exposed the hypocrisy of her parents.
It’s unacceptable to date someone accused of sexual allegations, but perfectly ok to have him running the Country & be an example to young, impressionable kids.
Oh, Help Me Rhonda!

As witnessed in the viral video, the mother did not acknowledge the double standard with her political beliefs and brushed off an opportunity to start a deep discussion with her daughter.
For now, there are no follow-ups and reports of a breakthrough between Faith and her parents.
