“A Democrat will give you the shirt off my back”

"Democrats will give you the shirt off my back” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Give you the shirt off my back” is an expression that means to give someone help, even if it’s the last thing one has (clothing). The joke is that the Democrat doesn’t give that person’s own shirt, but your shirt (in this case, the shirt of the speaker of this saying).

“A Democrat will give you the shirt off my back” was posted on Twitter by Crazy Truth on October 28, 2013. “A Democrat will give you the shirt off my back” (also shown on an image by DailyKenn.com) was posted on Twitter by Patriot Hawgrider on October 28, 2013. The saying probably originated from this image.
