Donald Trump: Ask The Gays

Donald Trump continues to invoke his newly enumerated, but highly dubious support for LGBT people to encourage his election to the White House.

After recognizing the LGBT victims of the mass shooting during a national security speech on Monday reiterating his call for a Muslim ban, Trump again referenced the LGBT community on Wednesday during a rally in Atlanta, Ga.

“For the gays out there, ask the gays and ask the people, ask the gays what they think and what they do in not only Saudi Arabia, in many of these countries with the gay community,” Trump said. “Let’s ask. Then you tell me: Who’s your friend, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?”

Trump invoked LGBT people to criticize his rival Hillary Clinton for accepting donations to the Clinton Foundation, which conducts overseas humanitarian work, from countries that criminalize homosexuality like Saudi Arabia.

“They want to enslave women,” Trump said. “As far as the gay community, they kill gays. And she’s taking money.”

Referencing the reported contributions Saudi Arabia gave the Clinton Foundation, Trump said of the country, “I wonder why we take care of them.”

Promoting his plan to bar Muslims from entering the United States, Trump called it “a temporary ban in particular from certain people coming from certain horrible, where you have tremendous terrorism in the world.”

“You know what those places are,” Trump said. “But we have to put a stop to it. We have to put a stop to it until such time as we can figure out what is going on because right now we don’t have a clue what’s going on, folks.”

Trump also cited LGBT support when he decried the idea of allowing Syrian refugees to enter the United States on the basis that Muslims practice Sharia law, which he said institutes “execution for things that you would say are, like, standard parts of life.” Sharia law calls for the death of gay people by stoning.

“I will tell you the LGBT community, the gay community, the lesbian community, they are so much in favor of what I’ve been saying over the last three or four days,” Trump said to applause..

Washington Blade.

I could bore you to buggery about the media - the straights and the gays - who still use 'gays' as a noun.

#AskTheGays instantly became a meme thing on Twitter...

PS Gays for Trump. An actual thing and not a joke.
