A professional wrestler is using political jabs at conservatives to propel himself to fame.
Daniel Harnsberger of Virginia, whose stage name is Daniel Richards, wears trunks in the ring with the words “Progressive Liberal” written on the back, and wears T-shirts with Hillary Clinton’s photos all over it – as if she is still “in the fight.”
Richards says he inserts political statements into his performances for the “entertainment aspect.”
He insults conservatives in the audience by bashing country music, and telling them they’re backward and uneducated.
“I understand now why you all identify with country music,” Richard tells the audience at a wrestling event. “It’s slow and simple and it’s boring, just like each and every one of you.”
He is no fan of Trump, and claims he really believes what he says about Republicans being backward.
“I believe what I believe and no one is going to tell me any different. The right-wing do not pay attention to details they’re not interested, or to listening to opinions different from their own,” Richards reportedly stated.
