It’s official: Gay Republican group is ‘disappointed’ with Trump
After a long silence, the delusional Log Cabin Republicans responded to the Trump administration’s rollback of transgender student protections by saying the pro-Trump LGBTQ group was disappointed by the decision.
The president of LCR, told Reuters in 2015, that Trump is “one of the best, if not the best, pro-gay Republican candidates to ever run for the presidency.”
LCR went on to state that, “He’s been to a gay wedding…” And, “His record doesn’t bear out that that would be an enemy to the gay community.”
Removing protections drew the condemnation of Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), whose son is transgender. “This lamentable decision can lead to hostile treatment of transgender students and studies have shown that bullying and harassment can be detrimental to the emotional and physical well-being of teenagers,” she wrote in a statement.
“What could possibly motivate a blind and cruel attack on young children like this?” asked Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign. “These transgender students simply want to go to school in the morning without fear of discrimination or harassment. The consequences of this decision will no doubt be heartbreaking.”
