Sean Duffy: Donald Trump Speaks For White Men

A champion for the oppressed.
Views:

Trump surrogates are either unabashed liars, or they're complete simpletons who often tell unpleasant truths. In Wisconsin's Sean Duffy they have both.

During a CNN interview this morning, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) acknowledged the Trump phenomenon for what it is — identity politics for white men.

While opining about Trump’s RNC-closing speech, Duffy said, “There’s a viewpoint that says, ‘I can fight for minorities, and I can fight for women,’ and if you get that, you make up a vast majority of the voting block and you win. And white males have been left aside a little bit in the politics of who speaks to them.”

Duffy’s implication is that in Trump, white guys have finally found a candidate who speaks to their concerns.
