The LGBTQ+ Equality March has little to no basis in reality.

Another week, another protest against the president. Russian hookers and pathetic attempts at infrastructure week aside, the never-ending cavalcade of self-aggrandizement has to be the most annoying feature of Trump’s America... But the upcoming LGBTQ+ Equality March has little to no basis in reality.

At the beginning of the century, Hillary Clinton was proudly declaring that marriage is between a man and a woman on the Senate floor while Barack Obama was doing so in the pages of The Audacity of Hope. Donald Trump did the same in a 2000 interview with The Advocate, but he also called for the inclusion of sexual orientation as a protected class under the 1964 Civil Rights Act and a “strong domestic-partnership law that guarantees gay people the same legal protections and rights as married people.”

From his days of publicly supporting AIDS foundations in the ’80s through decades of promoting openly gay staffers through the Trump Organization, Trump has continually reflected cosmopolitan and libertarian sensibilities about LGBTQ+ rights. Yet while Clinton and Obama “evolved” on the issue of gay marriage, the media has branded Trump as “flip-flop[ping].” (Trump announced that he was “fine with” same-sex marriage immediately after winning the presidency.)

Despite criticism from both sides, Trump largely stood by his “New York values” throughout the 2016 presidential campaign ...

Wonderful, so now we have a president who maintains his cosmopolitan New York values on gay marriage while grabs America's pussy and rapes the democratic process and pimps our future to Vlad Putin.

It just keeps getting better and better!

PS: Why isn't Tiana Lowe asking the evangelical community how they feel about Mr. Trump's values?

By the way, if Chick-Fil-A's views on marriage equality bother you, why not just pick up a bucket from The Colonel?
