"Such messaging did not go down well in rural Pennsylvania or southern Ohio. Critics speculated whether the image was a deliberate character of a bored metro-sexual designed to get the goat of conservatives.

Twenty years earlier Democrats would have felt embarrassed by the ad." - Victor Davis Hanson, The Case for Trump (2019)
