“We are always better as a society when we have empathy for one another, so I would just say, I would like to say to those Trump voters: congratulations. I sincerely hope he addresses your concerns, and I sincerely hope that if you felt forgotten, he won’t forget you now,” Seth expressed. “As a white man, I know that any emotions that I’m feeling are likely a fraction of those being felt by the LGBTQ community, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Muslim-Americans, and any number of the immigrant communities so vital to our country, so hopefully the Trump Administration and supporters will be compassionate to them, because they need your compassion.”
