GOP Rep Won’t Support Equality Act Because Trump Could Declare Himself “First Female President” [VIDEO]

Bustle reports:

A Republican congressman from Florida has expressed his opposition to protecting LGBTQ rights before, and his views have only gotten more confusing. At a Tuesday hearing on the Equality Act, Rep. Matt Gaetz argued against transgender rights and raised eyebrows all over the place.

“Consider this possibility — if President Trump were to say, I am now the first female president? Who would celebrate that?” Gaetz said. “Would those who support the legislation think that’s a good thing, or would they be dismayed? Bad actors have already weaponized some ostensible equality laws for their own benefit.”
