It's not because a member of team MAGA created an even more Caucasian version of Yelp. The app, 63red, rates businesses based on how they treat conservatives or the political views of their owners.
“I'm trying to position it as an everyday 'where can I go eat safely' app,” founder Scott Wallace told The Daily Beast.
