Woman boasts her DYING pro-Trump dad voted for Biden because ‘it matters to his girls', but not everybody feels the inspo

Added 10-25-20 09:37:02pm EST - “A TikToker has said her critically ill dad was going to vote for Donald Trump, but went for Joe Biden to please his kids after "intense exchanges" over politics. The supposedly inspirational message was lost on many, however.” -


Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Woman boasts her DYING pro-Trump dad voted for Biden because ‘it matters to his girls’, but not everybody feels the inspo”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A video blogger that goes by the nickname “Erleepen” on TikTok, shared an emotional story about her father, who she says has few months to live at the most, voting for the Democratic presidential candidate instead of his pick  - Trump - after his own children prodded him to change his mind.

"My 55 year-old conservative dad has never voted Democrat in his life. He's dying of Aplastic Anemia [a condition that occurs when a body stops producing enough new blood cells]," state the cards the blogger flashes in the video.

"We've had some intense exchanges about him voting for Trump this year, which has been painful, since we'll almost certainly lose him in the next few weeks/months. He has 6 daughters who love him dearly,” the next couple of cards read.

The blogger, who is teary-eyed and visibly distraught at that point of the video, then brightens up and smiles as she shows a card, announcing that “yesterday” her father “was so excited to tell me he’d just voted for Biden/Harris 2020.”

“Erleepen” says that he father told her that he cast a ballot for Biden - apparently while casting aside his own political beliefs in the process  -  because “it matters to my girls and my girls matter to me.”
