Man told his Trump shirt made local gym goers ‘uncomfortable,’ was asked to not wear it anymore


A man says he was asked not to wear a shirt supporting President Trump at a gym that he attends in Troy, Mo.

Staff Sgt. Jake Talbot says he has worn the shirt to CDY Fitness in Troy, Missouri (636- 462-5290) many times before but on Sunday, he says the owner asked him not to wear the shirt again, saying the shirt was offensive to her and others.

“I was just puzzled there for a second. She said that it was racist and represents racism and that’s when I when I was like ‘oh, you’re done,” said Talbot.

Talbot says he finished his workout before posting his frustrations to Facebook.

“The owner Liz came up to me and said that Trump shirt I had on was offensive and said I needed to remove it in order to work out there, and that it is linked to racism. I hate the word, its used way too loosely. It’s 2019, get the hell over it, it’s not racism,” Talbot said.

The gym’s owner declined an interview with News 4 but says the shirt made several members uncomfortable. On Sunday she went online and posted that the gym “shouldn’t be a political forum for anyone.”

Attorney Lynette Petruska says the gym’s owner was well within her legal bounds to ask Talbot to take the shirt off.

“It’s just the racist part she brought up that I just do not like,” said Talbot.

Talbot says another nearby gym offered him a year membership for free.

  1. I wouldn’t expect this from any place in Missouri. For Christ sake I live in Nor Cal and Trump Wear is prolific. Especially the kids. (I’m old, a kid is anything under 25).

  2. I live right down the road from Troy. Like BB, I’m amazed that this would happen here. I will pay a visit to this gym tomorrow.
    With my MAGA hat of course.

  3. @ Bad_Brad – this is not your father’s Miss. This is were we are at now unfortunatley. I was just telling the mrs glad we did our cross country trips in the 80’s and 90’s when we did.

    It SUCKS but sorry to say that is GONE.

    I called and the message said that it was ‘out of memory’.

    I’ll try again to-morra.

    They have NO idea what they are in for!

  4. Forgot to say he should have worn his Che shirt, SOOO much more fashionable and ChicCommie for a ruthless murderer.

  5. “Judgement-free zone”
    Nope, entirely judgmental regarding conservatives.

    I guarantee the dude could wear “Black lives matter” shirts seven fucking days a week without a single peep.

  6. I was just released from Facebook jail about an hour ago after a 24 hour sentence. What crime did I commit? I posted a photo of a 90 round drum magazine on a gun forum. They explained that it didn’t fall within the limits of their community standards. Little Lord Zuckmeister and his merry band of Brownshirts are really busy saving the world.

  7. How to be Subhuman Garbage!
    Step 1: Demand leftism/marxism/multiculturalism everywhere, all the time
    Step 2: Now stare in horror at your city/state ruined by the corruption, crime, and degeneracy you demanded
    Step 3: Move to a place where conservatism has maintained order and prosperity
    Step 4: Demand leftism/marxism/multiculturalism everywhere, all the time

  8. I always turn in back on them. When someone tells me I’ve said or done something that someone finds offensive, I always say, “That’s offensive! You have offended me! You must cease that offensive behavior right not!”

    After that I ignore any gesticulation and/or counter-statements altogether. Those people really ARE offensive, and should be treated as such. Why not? They do it.

  9. @hambone:

    Why are even bothering to use that POS platform?
    Every time you use suckerburgs website you enrich him.
    Why not make fuckerburg go the way of cable TEE-VEE and cut the cord to him?

    Remember, the interwebs worked just fine before snookerburg and it will work just fine once he goes the way of MSN chat and Myspace so why not help hasten that along by BANNING his spy-site?

    I have never used it and NEVER will… just like cable television because I loves me my totally FREE antenna and emails!

  10. Do they forbid Che Guevara t-shirts also, I wonder? He was a racist too… well as a hater, murderer, communist, and other things.

  11. It was likely just her that was offended. They always talk in terms of all others feeling just like them when in reality nobody does.

    Remember the black school teacher in {North Carolina?} that had the class of small children all sing some song in praise of Obama? It was like some communist re-education camp preamble.

    It’s more than troubling to see so many americans behaving like this these days

  12. “On Sunday she went online and posted that the gym “shouldn’t be a political forum for anyone,” as she politicized the gym and the patrons in order to make her (fraudulent) political point!

    LOL! Dems are such morons.

  13. “This gym should be a political-free zone, you pro-Trump racist person who’s pushing racism”. We’re doomed with dum-shiites like this running around.
