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.”
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.
That's got to be the most fragile masculinity I've ever heard tell of.

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.

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.
