The cries of “give him a chance” have echoed across the country since Donald Trump became our President-elect. From members of the GOP telling spurned Hillary Clinton voters to give him a chance with healthcare, immigration, LGBT rights, and every other hot-button subject that came up on the election trail. And one of the latest people to suggest Trump gets his fair turn at bat (and subsequent swing at our nation) is Kelly Osbourne – at a Trevor Project fundraiser no less.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, while accepting the Trevor Hero Honoree Award in Hollywood over the weekend, Osbourne used her acceptance speech to get political.
“We’re living in a time when we might not have the future president that we wanted in this country,” Osbourne said to the audience. “And as an immigrant who can’t vote, I don’t really get to say much. But tonight, I do. People voted for him. So just like they gave us a chance to love equally, we will fight to keep that.”
“But we have to give him a chance,” Osbourne continued. “And we do it by spreading love, not hate.”
Sadly, all Donald Trump has had since the election ended are chances and missed opportunities to prove he isn’t the man the country saw on the election trail. But every time he nominates another person to his cabinet with a storied anti-LGBT history, he further alienates himself from the community. People generally stop getting chances after the second.
