If you have a problem with the patriarchy or with white people you‘d look at me and
you’d go this guy invented white people because he’s so white.
He probably invented slavery.
He probably was resistant to women voting.
So the weird thing is I do feel like sometimes even people talking about Trump or some outlandish
conservative opinion will kind of present things to me that are like well, you know,
some people don’t support gay marriage like you maybe.
And I’m like just because I look, you know, like a prototypical white guy villain who
wants to kick immigrants out. I’m not.
I mean that’s a form of bigotry.
Anyway, I’m a great guy.
我在印第安的一个小镇长大 我认为即使是在纽约 洛杉矶
I grew up in a small town in Indiana and I feel as though living in New York or in LA
or even Chicago there is this dismissiveness to people with different opinions where rather
than explaining our point of view we’d rather be right.
John Kerry was running for president versus Bush there was this – I feel like there
was this collective thing like anyone who votes for Bush is an idiot.
And I’m like that’s not how you convince people to – that’s not how you persuade someone.
And I feel like being from a red state or from a flyover area that sometimes people
on the East Coast or in LA there is this dismissiveness of people that hold differing viewpoints.
Rather than having a discussion there’s just kind of like well they’re morons.
And the thing that worries me about people that are supportive of Trump or angry about
Trump there’s this absence of dialogue.
Instead saying to someone that supports Trump like what is it?
What is it that you like?
There is this self-satisfaction of like you’re an idiot.
And that’s not how you convince someone.
And I think that there’s also this kind of denial that I think we exist in when it
comes to Trump or people of radical opinions that we emotionally disagree with is that
there are moments when they talk.
Where we go, well that’s a decent point.
But we never admit to that.
When Trump talks, when he gives speeches because everyone watching this has watched Trump.
I mean I stopped working to watch him because it’s entertainment.
It’s not as if he’s not articulate at communicating an idea.
It’s not that there aren’t moments that we don’t identify with some of his ideas.
Overall again emotionally we might disagree wholeheartedly but we might identify with
some of the fear.
We might identify with the sheer raw kind of like I don’t want to lose.
I want greatness.
We all identify.
That’s not that foreign.
It’s not speaking a different language.
But I think there’s also some geography that we forget that I think that sometimes
there is similar to how we get our news like there’s people that watch Fox.
There’s people that watch MSNBC.
I’m a news junkie and there was a time when I brought up yeah, Fox news and my friends
were like how dare you watch that.
And I’m like I would go to the Soviet Union when it still existed.
It doesn’t mean I’m a Marxist, you know.
It doesn’t mean I support communism.
I just think it’s weird that I – maybe I personally – I like having friends that
像喜剧演员一样的 像我一样的朋友 很放的开的那种
like comedians that I perform with that open for me on the road.
I had a guy who was a libertarian and then the next guy who opened for me was an Occupy
Wall Street guy.
And all three of us are friends.
I kind of like people with different opinions.
And I’m not dismissive of – I mean I might casually say you’re crazy but I mean I love
these people and I also learn from them.
So anyway, my point is I’m a great guy.
