Trump-loving Dilbert cartoonist feared watching Hillary become nominee would rob him of his manhood
Trump-supporting Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams has become a very sensitive soul lately — so sensitive, in fact, that he said this week he needed his own safe space to hide from the Democratic National Convention.
While responding to a critic on Twitter, Adams said that he didn’t watch this week’s DNC because it would have made him feel “like a weak and useless white male.”
@MrDuttonPeabody Did the Democratic convention make you feel like a weak and useless white male? That's why I didn't watch.

This statement, which is about the boldest way to telegraph your own personal insecurities you’ll ever see, was met with deserved ridicule from Adams’s followers.

@ScottAdamsSays That might have more to do with you than the DNC.

.@ScottAdamsSays Thank you, Scott. This needed to be said. Glad someone is finally looking out for white males.

@ScottAdamsSays That says a lot about you. Only weak men feel that way

You get the idea.
At any rate, if you’re surprised that someone with such deep-seated insecurity about their masculinity is all-in as a Trump supporter… well, you really shouldn’t be.
