Donald Trump Supporters “Masturbate to Anime,” says Republican Strategist

Anime has a way of popping up in mainstream news in some pretty bizarre ways.

This time it was a via a remark from Republican strategist Rick Wilson, who appeared on MSNBC to discuss Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump and had some choice words about the presidential hopeful’s supporters.

Discussing the controversial alternative right conservative movement, Wilson said, “the screamers and the crazy people on the alt-right as they call it, who love Donald Trump, who have plenty of Hitler iconography in their twitter icons, who think Donald Trump is the greatest thing. Oh, it’s something. But the fact of the matter is most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime.”

Check out the final moment of the video, where the guest on the left’s jaw drops in disbelief at what she’s hearing.

There’s a lot I could say here, but we have many readers from many different political persuations, and… yeah, you know what? I’m not touching this one with a ten-foot pole, guys. Why don’t you have at it yourself in the comments?
