A photo of a woman with a sign that says "Amish for Trump", who also happens to be carrying a cell phone and a fashionable bag, made waves on social media.
The photo caused many laughs among netizens, who suggested that the woman might not actually be a person qualified to speak for the Amish people, as they are known to avoid modern gadgets.
Users slammed the woman for not looking like a traditionalist Amish.

The Amish people, who champion a simple lifestyle, generally without the use modern world conveniences, are not known to be politically active, but according to some experts in the field, vote "overwhelmingly Republican".
