Just because you follow The Bachelorette Spoilers and know how things end doesn’t mean that you don’t want to enjoy the episode in peace.
But, this week, The Bachelorette was interrupted by the exact opposite of peace — it was an announcement of Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick.
And the Bachelor Nation was pissed.
Chris Harrison warned viewers in advance that Trump would be preempting the broadcast.
But the Bachelor Nation has been waiting for ages to watch Colton Underwood tell Becca Kufrin that he’s a virgin.
Most people get their breaking news from Twitter and their in-depth coverage from online articles these days, so it was understandably difficult for many people to understand why they needed to waste 20 minutes of their lives.
And, as you may have heard, Trump isn’t exactly hitting any record highs for Presidential popularity.
So the Bachelor Nation took to Instagram to vent their fury and frustration. Take a look:
Fans were pissed
This tweet shows that you can care about politics but still be furious that you’re missing your show. People can do both.
Is this evidence of Trump hypocrisy?
Honestly, “caring about women” is not really part of his brand.
This has happened before
Remember when Trump interrupted Bachelor in Paradise? What does he have against the pursuit of love?
The language became colorful
It takes a lot of audacity to interrupt primetime television and take twenty entire minutes to read one name.
Trump was not what the Bachelor Nation wanted to see
Seriously. And now everyone wants to know how Blake’s mom feels about what he decided to share with the world.
This is what you’d call a swing voter
That’s probably an easy promise to make. Unless you have some sort of pathology that makes you crave the spotlight so much that you schedule a briefing for primetime.
