Meet Kevin, a 23-year-old ardent Hillary supporter.
A photo of Kevin looking adoringly at Hillary, taken last year in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at a pizza party where Hillary’s Iowa field workers got to meet the candidate, has gone viral since an Alt-Right 1488-er (who is probably himself an equally impressive specimen of masculinity) posted it in a tweet, wondering aloud if Kevin belongs to the same species as us.
Kevin, all 98 pounds of him, was not, however, dismayed and is apparent bearing up manfully (if that is the right word).
So what was your initial reaction?
I screamed. My roommate actually came in to see what happened. Then I started laughing because itâ€™s so amazing to me.
It is pretty great. You look very, um, angelic in that picture.
Iâ€™m beaming. I didnâ€™t realize Hillary was going to stand right next to me until it happened, so Iâ€™m in full shock and awe.
So have you read any of the replies to the tweet?
Of course Iâ€™ve read the replies. I have a good sense of humor, so I read them for the absurd comedy. …
There are also a lot of replies from some charming-sounding folks very concerned about your testosterone levels. Care to comment?
I mean, if it was one person Iâ€™d think it was a weirdo. But a lot of people are worried about it! Maybe they see something I donâ€™t. Iâ€™ll schedule a doctorâ€™s appointment and say I was referred by the crack medical team of Trump Twitter supporters. …
So how does it feel to have unwittingly become the face of a meme?
Itâ€™s hilarious and inevitable. Iâ€™ve been a pretty obnoxious Hillary supporter online for the last year, so this honestly feels like karma. Iâ€™ve been asking for it. And Hillary retweeted me once last year, which caused another wave of angry people, so Iâ€™m familiar with the routine. Stay perfectly still until they lose the scent.
