McEnany Tells Stupid Lie About World AIDS Day

Mediaite reports:

Chris Johnson, a White House reporter for the Washington Blade — the oldest LGBTQ+ newspaper in the United States — confronted McEnany about Trump’s World AIDS Day speech, noting that the president failed to mention the LGBTQ+ community.

“The president honored World AIDS Day yesterday in a way that no president has before, with the red ribbon there,” McEnany answered Johnson, both ignoring his question and lying to the reporters.

Former president Barack Obama honored the day the exact same way in 2012 — by putting up a large red ribbon in front of the White House. Trump, therefore, is not a trailblazer when it comes to World AIDS Day.

This was the fourth consecutive year that Trump omitted LGBTQ people in his listing of communities impacted by HIV/AIDS.
