SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (KSL) – A Lyft ride ended early for a Utah resident headed to a Bernie Sanders event in Salt Lake City last week. Samuel Grenny said that’s because the eight-minute ride was filled with racist rants by his driver.
It was all captured on Grenny’s girlfriend’s cellphone camera. In the video, the following conversation is heard:

Driver: “Muslims are pieces of (expletive).”
Grenny said it all started when their casual conversation turned to politics.
“He asked me opinions on Donald Trump. I guess, in hindsight, no one should do (that) if they don’t want to hear the possible slew of answers that could follow,” he said.
