At the event, Bryan was asked about his thoughts on Donald Trump running for president.
“Donald Trump is filled with inflammatory rhetoric, and I just think that he would say anything,” Bryan expressed (via Vulture). “Look, he’s appealing to some of our most basic emotions through fear. And I think America is quite earnestly feeling that way. So the emotion is real.”
“There are many aspects to Donald Trump. He’s a complicated guy, and I’ll be honest, an aspect that I like is that he is refreshing,” Bryan added. “I think people realize that he doesn’t have a filter, and he doesn’t even care if what he is saying is politically correct. The rest of the candidates are very managed. I think they have an extremely handled approach to delivering a press conference. For some reason at this moment in time, he is relevant in our political landscape. We need to learn from what he’s doing. Meaning that it’s time for us to adapt. And I think the bigger thing that I keep thinking about is, why are so many Americans responding to him?”
