Donald Trump Cares About Gays (Sort Of)

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has an elaborate plan to help promote equality for gays and lesbians —at least, that's what he claims.

In an interview with New England Cable News reporter Sue O’Connell, who identified herself as a lesbian, Trump really nailed the question of what he would do to help the community:

“That's your thing and other people have their thing,” Trump said when the reporter asked about his strategy to make the country more equal. “We have to bring all people together, and if we don't, we're not going to have a country anymore. It’s gonna be a total mess. It’s a mess right now, it’s gonna be worse." 

Aside from a long diatribe on how our current president has failed to bring the country together, there isn't much else to nibble on in terms of strategy from the Trump clan.

In spit of that, even before Trump announced his "detailed" plan to help the LGBT community, gay YouTuber Kyle Kittleson had voiced his support for the spray-tanned mogul. In the following video, posted last October, Kittleson lists the reasons as to why he supports Trump, and why you should too:

Trump’s flip-flopping on gay marriage is reminiscent of Clinton’s previous stance on the issue. The Log Cabin Republicans, the nation’s largest Republican organization dedicated to representing LGBT conservatives and allies, criticized Democrats, implying that Trump may be the lesser of two evils, and citing Clinton’s previous anti-gay marriage stance.

“Democrats and members of the LGBT community have given Hillary Clinton a pass on past transgressions and even allowed her to rewrite the history of the gay rights movement,” Log Cabin Republican president Gregory T Angelo said. “Log Cabin Republicans will not. It’s time for the people of Iowa — and the country — to know that when it mattered, Hillary Clinton was wrong on gay rights.”

Well, Barack Obama also had an issue with it, but he later became the first President to appear on the cover of Out magazine while in office. Which goes to show that you can be human and have a change of mind — as long as you get it right in the end.
