So it's official. And with his VP pick, I will hereby bodyslam anyone who claims that Donald Trump is a friend to the lgbt community. I'm talking "Andre The Giant" bodyslam:And for all of those who don't know what I'm talking about, allow me to give you some background. Last year, Mike Pence signed into law an ugly "religious freedom/lgbt discrimination" bill. It backfired in his face, BIG TIME:
Mike Pence's claim about his anti-gay law contradicted by picture of him with lobbyists - First, Mike Pence tried to say that the law wasn't a cover for anti-lgbt discrimination. BUT a picture of him signing the law while surrounded by anti-lgbt spokespeople and activists proved that he was lying:
Eight is Mike Pence's unlucky number - And THEN while appearing on This Week to justify the law, Pence made a complete ass of himself. George Stephanopoulos asked him EIGHT times whether the law allows for anti-lgbt discrimination. Pence WOULD NOT answer the question:
The awful law itself and the clumsy way Pence lied about it and defended it just added to a backlash, which Indiana is still feeling the effects of.
So it's like this - this presidential election is serious. Stop whining about having to vote for the lesser of two evils or how Clinton is corrupt or sold out. If you don't make a choice, it will be made for you and it may not be the one you like.
Also, all of you folks saying "give me one reason sentence which says I should vote for Clinton that does not involve Trump," guess what? There are none. Trump is in every sentence detailing reasons why you should vote for Clinton. And not only him, but now Pence.
You can't take your ball and go home here, folks. You have no fairy godmothers or wishes which will make things right and the choices for president clean and pure.
Be smart for God's sake. Be strategic. And if anything, think of the folks who will suffer if you don't make the right choice. And that choice is NOT "no choice."
This isn't bullying. It's simple truth.
