No Mention Of Trump At Log Cabin Republicans Gala

Chris Johnson reports for the Washington Blade:

The nation’s premier organization for LGBT Republicans held its annual dinner for the first time at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. — but not once did any speaker on stage mention President Trump. Keynoting the Log Cabin Republican dinner Wednesday was 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, who delivered a heavily autobiographical speech on moving from being a secretary to CEO that sought to inspire leadership goals among those at the dinner.

Log Cabin held the dinner at the Trump International Hotel as the president faces criticism for refusing to put his assets in a blind trust amid suspicions wealthy and foreign interests would conduct business at his properties to influence public policy.

But not once during the entire celebration did Fiorina or anyone else on stage mention Trump or his policies. Among his administration’s actions to undermine LGBT rights: revoking Obama-era guidance assuring transgender students restroom access in schools, ordering the U.S. military to ban transgender service members and staffing a Justice Department with attorneys arguing against legal protections for gays before the federal judiciary.

    Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil. Get a tax cut. I hope the food sucked

    • Todd20036

      Yup, there’s a reason I will never befriend a republican.
      Former republicans, sure. But anyone who calls himself a republican today is really a Nazi or a Nazi enabler.
      Every. Last. One.

    • ChrisMorley

      Their ‘massive crowd’ at their dinner was perhaps 100 people, tops.

      • Kenster999

        I seriously doubt they were all tops…

      • BudClark

        They’re all the queer Rethuglicans who could AFFORD it …

      • NMNative

        They’re using trump measurements.

  • Palmer

    No mention of Hair Furor, but lining his pockets. Money talks, b*llsh*t walks

    OT but this is some bullshit, courtesy of the HHS Press Secretary.

      Fuck these evil pricks

      • TruthWinsOut

        …. they love to get fucked …. Isn’t that obvious? They suck up to the people who fuck them constantly.

    • blackstar

      like a Mafia.

    • Joe in PA

      I sure hope all of these fucks that are eating up the sliming of government-run healthcare will refuse Medicare.

      Keep your government-hands off my Medicare!

      Sigh.

    • clay

      ALSO, Health & Human Services has decided to shut down the enrollment website on weekends, ‘cuz who would need to buy medical insurance except while at work?

    • Gustav2
    • Acronym Jim

      These people gloss over the fact that the premium hikes have been reduced by the ACA. The big hike they complain about most frequently was 25% (and that is overall – states involved in the exchange generally had lower rate increases). Just prior to the ACA going into effect, my firm’s premiums increased by 44%.

      • Chucktech

        They’d have you believe that insurance premiums never went up before Obamacare came along and spoiled everything.

      • My insurance premiums went up under the ACA. That’s true. But my old insurance didn’t really cover much. What I was basically getting was bills for the reduced rate that insurance companies are charged (which is a LOT less than you are billed without insurance). I pay less for health care now. Oh, and some of the shit that is “covered” isn’t. Yes, my annual physical is “free” but only in the sense that I don’t pay a copay for the doctor’s visit. I am paying $200 for the blood work that comes with it. That’s not free. The ACA needs to be improved. Hillary Clinton had a good plan to do that. (She should have talked about that nonstop instead of just assuming people would read it on her website.) Republicans want to make it much worse. In fact that last bill was even worse than the one before. They are getting meaner and nastier with each failure. Maybe someone can explain the psychology behind that. Any abnormal psychologists out there?

    • zhera

      Even if half of that is true, their solution is to take away healthcare from millions. How will that make things better?

      Evil assbags!

  • Belthazar

    Add to that list, Alabama is likely to send one of the most vocal anti-gay elected officials, in modern day history, to the US Senate and who the wholeheartedly supports. But, not one word from the LCRs…where is Thiel ?

    • Uncle Mark

      Thiel is holed up in his Shire in New Zealand somewhere…far from this shitshow.

  • netxtown

    they really didn’t need to mention trump. It’s on every door, window, curtain, napkin, salt shaker, toilet paper, carpet….hell, I’ll bet the room deodorizers are marked “TrumpAire”

    • JAKvirginia

      Precisely.

  • Treant

    Who now? Who? Never heard of him. I’m not sure who that is. Could you speak up, I can’t hear you? Oh, I see John over there calling for me, bye.

    • Rambie

      You know, the “LGBTs for Nazism” group

      • Treant

        I meant them regarding Trump, but it works both ways. :’-)

  • HZ81

    Their pictures should be passed around like our tiki-torch-carrying friends’ were. Sociopathic quislings.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Were his rosy cheeks the result of high priced whiskey, or makeup?

    Perhaps both…

    • Uncle Mark

      His rosy cheeks are the byproduct of A LOT of deep ass kissing. I’m guessing he’ll probably need to see a doctor about that.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        You say that like that’s a bad thing?

        • Silver Badger

          At the risk of much public censure, I find the concept to be gross. Too vanilla I guess.

    • clay

      I thought it was an attempt at dermabrasion or an acid peel.

      • Uncle Mark

        Clearly, a much stronger acid concentration is required

  • gaycuckhubby

    Well, they are good at denying reality

  • DaddyRay

    Did they eat cake because we know just how much Trumps DOJ support bakers who will not make cakes for LGBT events

    • Uncle Mark

      Did they lure Carly Purina there with the promise of baby parts? Y’all know how obsessed she is with those.

  • skyweaver

    “We’ll totally support Trump’s bottom line by holding this event at his hotel, but we won’t mention his name. THAT’LL show him!”

  • friendlynerd

    Why do these people still exist? How many times can you be told and shown that you are unwanted by your own party before you start to believe it?

    • gaycuckhubby

      Im convinced it’s a BDSM thing

    • CanuckDon

      They’re in their own world. The money end of things and keeping it for themselves rather than having it go to help others is the GOP link that resonates within their little black hearts. The fact that liberals are the reason they’re able to don their dark blue jackets and ties to sit in that room acknowledging their homosexuality is totally lost on them.

      • Funny how they don’t meet in a red state/city like Mobile or Jackson. /s

        • Circ09

          There are plenty of those freaks in Dallas though. It’s the younger professionals that startle me every time.

      • Circ09

        Oh, but they will tell you chapter and verse how they did their part for equality too. LCR Texans especially love to point out their lawsuits that led to ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

    • jerry

      From the Tony Perkkkins-approved platform, to every gay-hating “family values” candidate, there really is no shame at Quislings, Inc.

  • Princess Lardass

    People affiliating themselves with a party that will never treat them as full citizens…

    …I just can’t comprehend this lunacy.

    • Silver Badger

      Kapo mentality still with us today.

  • kareemachan

    Wait… is Carly gay?

    • RoverSerton

      As a HP survivor or her rein of terror, I wonder if she is human.

      • Belthazar

        Ouch! But true.

      • Uncle Mark

        If you look at her history, as to how she came to power, how she treats people, spied on employees & stockholders, used & lied about her step-daughter’s death, how she neglected to pay her campaign workers…
        …NO, she’s not human as you & I define humanity

        • Cuberly

          Yep, she’s the perfect “person” to speak at an LCR event.

    • TuuxKabin

      Opportunistic Infection.

    • Uncle Mark

      More likely she registered as a male

  • DaddyRay

    They should have tried to get Jared to speak after voting as female

  • blackstar
    • Treant

      Hey! Not just gay Republicans!

      • Uncle Mark

        Yeah, but clearly the gay Republicans will swallow ANYTHING. I’m certain you’re a lot more discriminating

        • Treant

          Extremely. 🙂

    • CarbonMade

      Democrats and Independents do as well! And how is that a bad thing?

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Quislings – yuk!

  • Mike in Texas

    If they’re not comfortable talking about Trump and his policies in public, why hold the event at a hotel bearing his name? So much psycho stuff …

  • rednekokie

    The log cabin rethuglicans are equally as devoid of the milk of human kindness as their straight compatriots. They are all so very wrapped up in their own selves that they have no idea of the world around them, and blindly follow the gerbils off the cliff.
    Why anyone would care what any of them thought is a mystery to me.

  • blackstar

    MASSIVE crowd at our 40th anniversary celebration tonight??? must be *trump numbers. 300-400 maybe .

    • Butch

      Actually I was going to ask – I’m sure the photo was shot from the best angle possible; but how many people (I’m tempted to put that in quotation marks, how many “people”) were actually there?

    • OdieDenCO

      I think he is talking about the size of the attendees. gregory t. angelo is looking well fed these days.

      • Butch

        I noticed that. He ain’t missing any meals, is he? And pictured with Yoho, who is the poster boy for right-wing slime?

    • ChrisMorley

      I reckon about 100.
      There are perhaps 10 or a dozen tables with about 10 people each.

  • TruthWinsOut

    Self Loathing Log Cabin Queers … Didn’t mention his name, since it was all over Trump’s Hotel, didn’t have to.

  • Joe in PA

    Huh, LCR still eating up that Secretary to CEO BS. Good to know.

  • clay

    Carly Fiorina? What, they couldn’t go the full Ted Cruz?

    • Uncle Mark

      Nah…Ted would much prefer to frolic on Fire Island with Weiderpass & Reisner

  • yes b’y

    Why is he so shiny? Oh, maybe I shouldn’t ask.

    • Uncle Mark

      He’s the GOP’s special butt plug

      • yes b’y

        hahaha

    • William

      All the Log Cabin boys have that “plasticized” look.

      • yes b’y

        Could it be santorum?

  • shrumpi

    They look fun…

  • Acronym Jim

    A “massive crowd?” I thought it looked like the yearly Christmas lunch at my old firm.

  • blackstar
  • olandp

    That’s a massive crowd? It looks like a boring group in an ugly room with no style. What is the deal with that lighting?

    • Beagle

      Maybe they’re trying (unsuccessfully) to create a rainbow flag effect?

  • Chucktech

    My, my, just look at that cove lighting around the ceiling… Red-yellow, red-yellow, red-yellow, then purple. Just like the gay flag….

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    If they were all on an island like PR and they were the only inhabitants, they too would be fucking abandoned after a hurricane and they’re in denial of this fact.

    • Reality.Bites

      Who do you think would have put them there in the first place?

  • Stuart Wyman-Cahall

    Well since the insurance companies aren’t too thrilled with how this administration is wing-wanging them I say they take a bullet for a couple of years and cut premiums in half. I’m dreaming, I know. But anything that leaves egg on the face of Trump and HHS could only serve everybody in the end. Since corporations have been deemed to be people, let them stick their necks out like many did for marriage equality. After all Obamacare is Romneycare. C’mon Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross. Bite the bullet.

  • Bluto

    House fag kapo kunts, every last one of ’em.

    Freaks.

  • Ken M

    “Massive crowd.” Well, in all fairness, the picture doesn’t show the ones under the tables. 🙂

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Not the ones in the closets.

  • Carly Fiorina on gay rights:

    http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/rachelwitkin/carly_fiorina_s_worst_lgbt_comments

    So why is an anti-gay bigot a key-not speaker at a gay event? Because it’s not a gay rights event. It’s a gay anti-gay rights event. So she’s the perfect choice.

    Also, looks to me like a lot of them are single. Hopefully they will pair off and stop bitching and moaning about how liberals won’t date them. No, we don’t like dating sociopaths. Go away.

  • Dale082

    Keep tap dancing Auntie Toms!

  • Robincho

    Angelo and Fiorina are what happens when cancer gets cancer…

  • The_Wretched

    I still think he’s in violation of the plain language of the lease by owning the former post office and being a governmental official. the emoluments problem stacks on that. And LCR – Carly doesn’t like you; she just loves getting paid that much.

  • John Calendo

    Useful Idiots. Keep asking them when they will campaign, hold balls and host dinners for Judge Moore.

  • Halou

    Carly Fiorina?

    Hold on a moment…

    Here we go.
    http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/rachelwitkin/carly_fiorina_s_worst_lgbt_comments

    What on earth are the “gay” Republicans doing even talking with that sad excuse of a woman, much less having her headline their event?

  • Halou

    How many times did Trump’s name appear on the expenditures?

  • JWC

    A rather pointless back slappin Gee lets feel good meeting

  • Hank

    With all of the venues to choose from in DC, why toss MORE money into Hair Drumpf’s coffers??? They should be ashamed!!!… even more!

  • 2guysnamedjoe

    No Mention Of Trump At Log Cabin Republicans Gala . . .

    except on the check they wrote to pay for the room.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Seriously, do these pustules of petulant pomposity really think they’re still relevant in some way? More to the point, when were they ever relevant to begin with? All one can do is yawn, like whatshisface in congress.

  • EDinMCO

    FYI: Ted Yoho (FL-03) is an ignorant, homophobic, birther zealot. You are the company you keep.

  • andrew

    How many people, nationwide, are members of the Log Cabin group? Is it hundreds, thousands or millions?

    I was going to Google pics for “useless tools”—then I realized that would be an insult to buggy whips and butter churns…
