Faced with romantic despair, Lawton saw opportunity. That encounter at the party—and the now-infamous incident where a Virginia restaurant refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders—inspired her to start Righter, a dating network that caters to Trump supporters who have been rejected on more mainstream dating apps over their political beliefs.
Righter, which launches later this month, is meant as an amorous safe space, but only for those who back the president. If you’re a liberal, Righter might actually sue you if you try to join.
“I have a very nice legal team that will be handling that,” Lawton said. “This is zero tolerance.”
