Default Bernie Vs Trump Supporters Receipts

This was posted on FB



Was wondering if there is any way to prove validity of it. I know as of late I've seen a few stories of receipts being faked in order to get attention. For the record I don't support either candidate here just the truth.

Because of the thousands upon thousands of supporters of each, one random generous soul/@$$hole is a valid representative sample.

I'd give this one about even odds - the two receipts are from two different states, which means presumably there are versions of each as a standalone somewhere online if authentic, and that someone assembled them into a single image to make the point. Or, one or both could be faked.

Either way, I don't think that there's a particularly valid point to be made by extrapolating from these.

The Trump one is the Customer copy (though they could have kept the wrong copy), but it seems like an awful lot to write on a receipt. If it was written by a customer they're an idiot who doesn't understand what 'miracles', 'hard work' or 'hand outs' mean.

Also, the no-tip receipt is from California, where servers get full minimum wage. So not tipping a server there is not stiffing them.

That's actually a good point. I'm not sure if it matters if this is fake or real, but as someone else said it really does seem like a lot to write on the receipt to get a point across. Thanks!
