As part of Hulu’s Triumph’s Election Special 2016, Triumph the Insult Dog visited the University of New Hampshire to quiz a group of students from the liberal arts school about microaggressions and political correctness.
Triumph chose the school after it issued a “bias-free language guide” which told students to avoid words like “American,” “homosexual,” “illegal alien,” and “Caucasian,” declaring those terms “problematic.”
Needless to say, the irascible puppet was veeeeery problematic. “What do you identify as, besides pretentious?” he asked one male student. After a female student explained what a “trigger warning” was, he began to speak about her in a very sexual manner, clearly angering her.
One female student was quizzed on what “mansplaining” meant. But after she was done explaining, Triumph went to a male student, saying he could probably explain it better.
To close the video out, Triumph brought in a flamboyantly gay African-American man into the room. Once the man was gone, he asked the students to describe him and brought in a sketch artist. Predictably, the New Hampshire students were extremely reluctant to bring up his sexuality or race.
