Politicians Still Face-palmingly Unaware Of Anime Culture
- Says we’re “not people who matter in the overall course of humanity.”
While explaining that he believes that Donald Trump’s success in the Republican party does not mean that establishment conservatism is dying, GOP strategist Rick Wilson dismissed those who support Trump’s presidential bid.
The quote goes like this – “The fact of the matter is, most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime. They’re not real political players. These are not people who matter in the overall course of humanity,”
If this man believes that fondness of a foreign culture makes a person MORE likely to support Donald Trump, then it is fascinating and sad to know that he makes a living advising on how to appeal to people.
Fortunately, these absurd comments didn’t suffer from a lack of blowback, as it seems plenty of people – even people who don’t like anime – know just how stupid this is.
