“It’s curious that virtually everything that comes out of Senator Cruz’s mouth is either an insult or a put-down. Today, it was Tim Cook, LGBT Americans and three of the GOP’s most revered leaders. Positivity training should be on his to-do list. Lighten up, Ted. Coming out is the most courageous and important thing that an LGBT person will do in their lifetime. Tim Cook showed great courage and leadership in doing so. He no doubt will save lives by inspiring those struggling with their sexual orientation or gender identity. All we get from Senator Cruz is either backhanded compliments or his backhand.” – Fred Sainz, vice present of the Human Rights Campaign, via press release.
