It’s fair to say Republican strategist Rick Wilson is not a fan of Donald Trump, and tonight.. boy did his comments about Trump’s rabid fans go to a weird place.

Wilson talked to Chris Hayes about a very specific section of Trump’s fans; not his mainstream supporters, his “alt-right” fans. The ones, he explained, that have lots of “Hitler iconography in their Twitter icons.”

He went on to say, “Most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime. They’re not real political players. These are not people who matter in the overall course of humanity.”

Hayes wisely didn’t ask him about that when he was finished and moved on.
