And Donald Trump is the best friend the gays ever had. Via Buzzfeed:
Donald Trump’s campaign CEO, Stephen Bannon, said during a 2011 radio interview that progressives vilify prominent women in the conservative movement because they are not “a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools.” Citing women like Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin, Bannon said conservative women threaten the progressive narrative.
“And so these women cut to the heart of the progressive narrative,” he said on Political Vindication Radio while promoting his movie, Fire From the Heartland: the Awakening of the Conservative Woman. “That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane and that’s why they hate these women,” he said.
The DNC reacts via press release:
Donald Trump should absolutely disavow his campaign CEO’s anti-gay slurs. It shocks the conscience that a major party nominee in the 21st century would stand by someone who uses hate speech directed at gay men and women. Trump’s divisive rhetoric and embrace of individuals who condone discrimination – like his running mate who is one of the most anti-LGBT governors in the country – show he is unfit to be president of the United States.
