( Daily Wire ) Many in the audience were “shocked” to find the male version of Hillary to actually be harder to admire than the real Hillary, while the female Trump seemed to “shine” in moments they’d remembered the real Trump “flailing or lashing out.” The overall experience for many Hillary voters was both “bewildering and instructive.”
In an interview with NYU published Feb. 28, Salvatore explained how surprised he and his colleague were by their reactions to the female Trump (renamed “Brenda King,” played by Rachel Whorton) and the male Hillary (“Jonathan Gordon”/Daryl Embry).
“We both thought that the inversion would confirm our liberal assumption—that no one would have accepted Trump’s behavior from a woman, and that the male Clinton would seem like the much stronger candidate,” said Salvatore. “But we kept checking in with each other and realized that this disruption—a major change in perception—was happening. I had an unsettled feeling the whole way through.”
