    Jorge de Cárdenas said in an interview with the Miami New Times that he was telecommuting Wednesday from a Starbucks near the University of Miami when a customer became impatient while waiting for his drink and began screaming that he had been denied service because of “anti-white discrimination.”

    Another customer told Sanguesa he was an “a–hole” and Sanguesa said, “F— you, b—-,” Cárdenas told the New Times.

    Cárdenas then grabbed his cellphone and started filming the scene.

    The video does not capture the moments leading up to the confrontation. But it does show Sanguesa demanding a refund.
    “We want nothing to do with you,” he told the barista, who appears to be a person of color. “You’re trash.”
    “So what?” she replied.

    “Because I voted for Trump! Trump! You lost! Now give me my money back,” Sanguesa said, moving toward the register. “What is your name? I want your name. I want your card. You’re garbage. You’re complete trash.”

    Another employee or a customer attempted to intervene.
    “Don’t talk like that to her,” a man told him. “You want to talk like that, take it outside. But don’t talk to other people like that.”

    “Don’t tell me what to do,” Sanguesa replied. “She did discrimination against whites.”

    The two men continued to argue and others chimed in.
    Sanguesa quieted down for a moment, asking an employee whether he had heard how the barista had talked to him. “No, I didn’t see that; I missed it,” the employee said. “All I could hear was you.”

    “Okay, fine!” Sanguesa shouted. “I’m going to punch you out.”

    “Want to step out?” the employee said. “Fine, I’ll be happy to.”

    Sanguesa again demanded a refund. Then he walked toward the door, muttering that the situation was “absolutely ridiculous.”

    The Miami Herald reported that Sanguesa has a criminal history: In 2008, he was charged twice — one week apart — with DUIs. In 2014, he was charged with domestic violence, though that charge was later dropped, the Herald reported.

    And for years, the Miami Herald said, Sanguesa has been emailing the newspaper “with rants against Cubans, women, immigrants, gays and lesbians, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

    The newspaper reported:

    In one email sent this month, he said Obama has caused 95 million people to lose their jobs by “pushing a sick, left wing agenda of not working . . . living off the government . . . trying to get rid of Jesus Christ, abortion, homosexuality, lesbians, transgender . . . Hollywood trash . . . we are Miami destroyed . . . by people who hate the USA.”

    Four days earlier he had sent an email about the coverage of the death of former Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez in a boating accident. “I hate Cubans . . . all pieces of s— including Jose Fernandez.”

    He ended the email: “Viva Fidel Castro!!”


    Just your average Trump supporter.


    He’s the average Trump supporter to the average hysterical Clinton sore loser.


    No, he’s the average Trump supporter. Mentally ill and off his meds. And a record to boot.


    Didn’t think we would see so many sore winners.


    Yep, Rush is simply giddy lately. Makes me want to throw up as his logic is completely off base and will not recognize that Clinton won the overall vote.

    However, the electoral college is still the best route for our country, as others have said, it is a safeguard, and an important one.

    I will go out on a limb here and predict Trump will not get through his first term. I also predict there is about a 10% chance he won’t even be sworn in. I base this on an improbable uprising among the “never Trump” movement. If I am wrong, I will be wrong, but this is my sense right now. Sore loser? Nope, just my prediction.
