GOP congressman: ‘We need more politicians to speak up for white males’

If Donald Trump is trying to “broaden his appeal,” Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) didn’t get the memo; either that or he knows that Trump’s base will most likely always be white men.

According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll from last month, Trump had a 60 percent to 26 percent advantage among white males. But thanks to his unpopularity with other groups, namely minorities and women, it may spell trouble for the GOP nominee’s chances to win the White House.

But white males should find solace in the fact that there are still people out there fighting for their voices to be heard, and Duffy is one of those champions. During a CNN interview yesterday morning, Duffy told New Day hosts Dana Bash and Chris Coumo that he had an opinion “that might be inappropriate to say,” but needed to be heard (this never ends well).

“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 bloc and you win,” Duffy said as the two CNN hosts listened uncomfortably. “And white males have been left [aside] a little bit in the politics of who speaks to them.”
