Trump Supporters Dating Site used Registered Citizen as Face of the Website

I have to admit I'm on the fence with this one. It is no secret I'm very anti-Trump, and anything that makes Trump look like Jenna Maroney from 30 Rock is great with me, but at the same time, I'm pro-second chances for registrants. Either way, the whole flap over this story is Shiitake-worthy.

Morons Are Governing America.

Trump Dating Site Pulls Photo of Convicted Child Sex Offender From Home Page
*****  filmed himself having sex with a teenager in the ’90s

Sean Burch | Last Updated: February 20, 2018 @ 8:02 AM — the new dating site courting “Make America Great Again” supporters — couldn’t have picked a worse model for its featured image.

On the site’s splash page, users are greeted by the smiling face of **** , who it turns out is a convicted sex offender, as several local news outlets reported. **** was convicted in 1995 for filming himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl while he was in his mid-2os. His conviction is listed on public records.

***'s picture, along with his wife Jodi’s, have since been removed from’s welcome page. The conservative-friendly site — which caused an uproar on Monday for only allowing straight men or women to sign up for the service– didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

A Convicted Sex Criminal Was the Face of a Trump Dating Site
Madeleine Aggeler

As we’ve seen, dating can be hard for Trump voters. To even the playing field, some MAGA fans created, a safe space for those who hate safe spaces. The website has been off to a rough start, however, facing criticism for only making itself available to straight men and women, allowing people to sign up as “happily married” or “unhappily married,” and for featuring a picture of B** R***, a convicted sex offender, on its home page.

According to North Carolina’s WRAL news, in 1995, *** was convicted for taking indecent liberties with a minor after he taped himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 25.

*** and his wife, Jodi, are active in North Carolina conservative politics, and for a time, the home page featured a picture of the couple smiling in matching Trump baseball caps. (The picture has since been changed.)

It is unclear who created the website, and what role the *** play, if any. Barrett Riddleberger would not agree to answer questions about the site, but did tell WRAL, “I’ve already paid my debt for something I did 25 years ago.”

On its (now ***-less) home page, says it is
“wrecking the dating game and giving like-minded Americans a chance to meet without the awkwardness that comes with the first conversation about politics.” It also includes helpful dating tips for users’s profiles like “Play a little hard to get but with a fun flare,” and “People who feel good about themselves make others feel good too.”

The Cut has reached out to for a comment on ***, and will update when we hear back.
