Today is the last Sunday of the month of June, and the last day of LGBT Pride parades for 2017. The way this important day was marked by the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Canada says volumes about their character and their leadership styles.
Prime Minister Trudeau attended a Faith + Pride service this morning before joining the parade, where he gave a moving statement about celebrating the multiple layers of identity that make Canada strong:

President Trump, whose administration has not yet said anything to acknowledge LGBT Pride month at all, spent his Sunday by making an appearance on FOX & Friends, where he was babied and given ridiculous statements to respond to that were so asinine they don’t even count as “questions:”

Then President Trump went golfing, for the second day in a row. It’s the 31st day he’s spent on the golf course since taking office.

Trump has demonstrated once again that he has no intention of representing the interests of America’s LGBT populations. While Trudeau is marching for equality, Trump went on FOX News to talk about himself.
