Today my coworker was joking about how bad Trump has been as a president.

I voted for Trump but I would never admit to it at work.

To get in on the conversation I , "Knock Knock"
He said "Whos there"
I said "Hillary"
He said "Hillary who"
I said "Orange you glad I didnt say Trump" (making a reference to how Donald Trump is orange)

My manager overheard me and he sent me an email saying that I need to stick to programming and not talk about politics during office hours.

He set up a 1 on 1 meeting with me tomorrow, which is weird because he never does that.

I feel sick to my stomach right now. Was going to have haddock for dinner but now I dont even want to get it because I feel like I will vomit if I eat fish tonight.
I don't think so, Tim.

I want to say This Happened, but I could actually see a Trump supporter in a position of authority reacting this way.

I don't remember why, but I have you tagged as being a liar. I am going to say that this didn't happen.

What the fuck

Is it really that serious?

OK he has a point. You're there to work and nit get into politics but he can lighten the fuck up.
People would have you believe that the accusation of racism is more offensive than ACTUAL racism.

I mean the guys above me are staunch conservatives (although iirc at least one doesn't support Trump) but they would never fire anyone for stupid Washington political shit unless you were being belligerent about it and disrupting the office.

If it does happen it's an extremely unprofessional environment.

I don't think he's firing you for a joke about Trump. He's firing you because the joke sucked.

I hope he fires you tc. That was vastly inappropriate. You should have the haddock anyway because you deserve to throw up
