Trump Keynotes For Major Anti-LGBT Group, Hails Them As “Titans In Fight To Defend Our American Heritage”

Chris Johnson reports at the Washington Blade:

President Trump hailed conservatives at the Heritage Foundation known for opposition to LGBT rights Tuesday night as “titans in the fight to defend, promote and preserve our great American heritage.”

“Everyone here tonight understands a core truth, that for America to have confidence in our future, we must have pride in our history,” Trump said. “As Americans, we have inherited a special legacy of freedom, culture, laws, traditions and values.”

Trump also praised the Heritage Foundation for its faithfulness to strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution — often cited as excuse for opposition to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of same-sex marriage nationwide. “We believe that the Constitution is the greatest political document in human history and that judges should interpret the Constitution as written,” Trump said.

    We all know what “heritage” means to these people.

    • Karl Dubhe

      To whatever is left of Trump’s mind too.

  • ChrisInKansas

    You know that he doesn’t have a fucking clue who these people are. He was just told to repeat this speech like a dotard.

    • kelven

      In his mind they are just one more pack of rubes. Which is exactly how they look at him.

  • HoneyBoySmith

    It’s rather telling that today’s Republicans consider anyone who is against racism, sexism and homophobia to be anti-American.

    • Todd20036

      Anyone who isn’t white, straight, Christian, and close-minded is anti American.
      And women who are the above are borderline.

    For America to have a better future we need to move past the mistakes in our past, not glorify them and enshrine them.

  • Barry William Teske

    Oh look!
    Lets just ask the horse!
    Hey #45?
    Which side of the ovens do you want the gays to line up on?
    Should we need to wear anything in particular?
    You say the family has connections in the clothing industry?
    Funny that…

  • S1AMER

    Is there anything more disgusting than the word “values” emanating from that vile mouth?

    • Todd20036

      Family? Veterans?

      • Strepsi

        Puerrrrto Rrrrrico?

  • The Professor

    Such a loathsome worm.

  • Droz

    I highly doubt that Donny even knows what the amendments are aside from the 1st (because an aide brings it up every time he demands a journalist’s head) and 2nd (because guns.)

    • boatboy_srq

      He’s keeping his knowledge of the 5th quiet until he’s facing criminal charges.

  • Rex

    Obviously the speech was written for him, and with the generic statements he should have been instructed to wink after each one.

  • Bluto

    His speech was written by a nazi wanting to sound reasonable for the ‘both sides’ crowd. He could of just said, “We’re getting rid of the fags, beaners, ragheads & darkies!” & his base would of wildly cheered & accuse the fags, beaners, ragheads & darkies of sowing division.

    • Tawreos

      How much more clueless can someone be than the guy in that photo?

      • Bluto

        It’s indicative of about 1/4 of the country.

        • fahvel

          optimist Bluto – if it were only 25% the turd would be floating belly down in your Potomac River.

          • Bluto

            25% is probably a conservative estimate.

      • Rex

        Looks like a woman to me.

        • Tawreos

          I think we just found the next “what color is the dress” type of thing.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I’m pretty sure the person thinks only white people suffer bigotry, racism and hate. They are the same people who insist the undocumented are simultaneously stealing all the jobs yet are at the same time lazy moochers who are gobbling benefits without contributing to the economy. It doesn’t have to make sense as long as they can feel they’re the victim of some great plot instead of fucking blaming either themselves for fucking up or the .01% who are truly fucking this country AND are 99% white.

      • Daveed_WOW

        That’s my stepmother. She thinks racism is when white people are called out for their racism. She wants to stop racism. She’s the victim. They get all the breaks.

      • Strepsi

        None. None more clueless.

    • greenmanTN

      I stand against cognitive dissonance.

    • Jerry Kott

      He or she gets all the information from the voices in their head?

    • Gregory B

      Dude could have saved time, space and brain cells by writing “I stand with STUPID”.

  • Harveyrabbit

    Which one of his “Heritage” lapel pin collection was he wearing?

  • Karl Dubhe

    O/T Gord Downie (of the Tragically Hip) died, yet another bright light has gone out. 🙁

  • netxtown

    uh…donnie. racism and sexism is tutored. ya know, children taught to hate based on certain criteria. religion is tutored as well, albeit with more pomp and singing. yes, hate is such a grand tradition! /s

  • boatboy_srq

    These Heritage events look less and less like normal gatherings and more and more like Bund meetings.

  • greenmanTN

    When did they stop calling these things klaverns?

  • TimCA

    “Trump also praised the Heritage Foundation for its faithfulness to strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution”

    I have just two words: Emoluments Clause.

    • Daveed_WOW

      Of course. The Constitution literally only applied to free white landowning men. That’s what they want.

  • ETownCanuck

    So…women, blacks, hispanics and now gays are all crossed off the list of potential voters….any more groups out there you want to alienate before the next election? Your base is is much like your hands Donald…bigger in your mind than in reality.

    • Snarkaholic

      The majority of female bigots will still vote for him…especially the ones whose husbands tell them to.

  • William

    I see scheduling is one of Pence’s duties.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Which heritage is that? The heritage of lynchings, Native genocide, the subjugation of LGBTQ citizens, the internment of Japanese Americans, the continued maltreatment and inequality of women? Which of these fine examples of American Heritage is it you speak of? And why do they deserve defending?

  • zhera

    USA has so much horrible history. To ignore that and speak about “special legacy of freedom, culture, laws, traditions and values” is disgusting. Not surprising though, considering both the source and the audience.

  • fahvel

    how the hell can anyone with an iq over 10 tolerate this fkfaced piece of detritus? It’s getting weird beyond any expectations!!!!!!

  • Galvestonian

    Well … I’m just hoping that this, like everything else he spouts about, is sheer fabrication – just more B.S. to stuff into the heads of the clueless idiots that constitute his so called ‘base’

  • William

    Did someone reach Scalia via the Ouija board?

  • ByronK

    “We believe that the Constitution is the greatest political document in human history…” And like the buybull, interpretations of it have resulting in millions of deaths. Oh, btw you orange idiot, Magna Carta, bitch?

    The fascism isn’t even subliminal anymore.

  • boobert

    And in his next breath he’ll say they are suckers and mock their religion! They’re nothing but ignorant fools.

    When Fearless Leader mansplains my national heritage to me, my knickers get all warm and wet…..

  • JWC

    Stuck on a theme to deflect Donny is now flying his true colors

  • Professor Barnhardt

    The articles of impeachment for Donald J. Trump will be the greatest political document in human history.

  • JCF

    Homocons, gay Steinbots, lazy ass stay-at-home-election-day queers: you OWN this.
