This immediately gained a lot of traction online, with many fans bashing the post, with some even calling Nash an idiot and threatening to unfollow him.

Fast forward to today, and Donald Trump has won the US presidential elections in a stunning upset. Kevin Nash has also appeared to be… upset finally responding to the criticism that he received for his Tweet back in May.
In a very long and profanity-laced Instagram post, Kevin Nash made it clear that he was not a Trump supporter, and was in fact a democrat. He also clarified that the shirt was meant as a warning to Hillary Clinton and not as an endorsement for the now president-elect Trump.
Nash also shared an Instagram post, which can be seen below, to express his disappointment at the results of the recent presidential election.
Nash’s other post showed a photo of his May Tweet, and with a very long caption.
“To the low IQ group. The tweet was, wore this for a response. Never did I say I backed, endorsed or gave a f**k about the candidate,” opened his post. “This was a warning not an endorsement. I’ve voted Democratic in all elections except my first, which I voted for Reagan. I wasn’t feeling Trump. It’s one vote f**k you if it’s not your choice.”

To the low IQ group. The tweet was, wore this for a response. Never did I say I backed,endorsed or gave a fuck about the candidate. In Volusia county where I live it was warmly embraced. Thus Hillary you're in trouble girl. Trump crushed in my county. I wasn't wrong. This was a warning not an endorsement. I even cut the sleves of to fit the demographic . I've voted Democratic in all elections except my first, which I voted for Reagan. I don't flip or flop. I vote for my party unless a beacon of sensibility comes along. I wasn't feeling Trump. It's one vote fuck you if it's not your choice. I'm a fucking American served my country in the United States Army. Assholes say tired of people with celebrity voicing their opinion. Guess what my vote counts as one just like you. Social media doesn't matter to me. Act like a stupid bigot your blocked. I don't need nor want your approval. People ask me what I do every day. They have no idea who I am. My answer whatever the fuck I want!
So now that’s all clear, let’s go back to wrestling.
