Just two days after President Joe Biden signed the Respect For Marriage Act into law, Donald Trump–who recently referred to the LGBTQ+ community as “sickos” who “support the perverted sexualization of minor children”–told a roomful of LGBTQ+ Republicans that he’ll spend his 2024 campaign “fighting hard” for them.
LGBTQNation reports that Trump made his pledge at the “Spirit of Lincoln” 45th anniversary gala of the queer conservative group The Log Cabin Republicans (LCR).
The gala was hosted on December 15 (on SHABBAS?!? Such a SHANDA) at Trump’s Florida non-secure storage facility, Mar-a-Lago.
That’s a lot to unpack right there, especially for a lifelong ally such as myself.
First of all, I will never understand any member of a minority community (and as a Jewish American, I put myself in this category) being a Republican, but especially the communities which have been the most marginalized.
I mean, “Gay Republicans” makes as much sense to me as “vegan butchers,” because the GOP continues to vote against the best interests of the LGBTQ+ community.
Just look at “Aunt Vicky” Hartzler blubbering hate tears all over the House floor because she couldn’t bear the thought of the gays having real marriages.
Personally, I know when someone is pandering simply to get money, which is why it’s easy for me to see through Donny’s thin skin into his greedy grifting black heart full of hate. If he’s still breathing, he’s grifting and lying. And he needs those rich Jews, as much as he loathes them as people.
So there he is lying to Orthodox Jews that he’s the best friend Israel ever had, like the worthless goniff he is.
And there he is telling monied LGBTQ+ Republicans (aka “the only good gays”) he’s going to “fight” for them when the only thing he’s ever truly fought for is the last fry in the McDonald’s bag.
Those Log Cabin bitches were also chanting for Kari Lake, who openly hates them.
As Mama RuPaul would say, “OH NO YOU BETTER DON’T!”
Oh, but they did.

I can’t make it make sense, so I turned to the remaining liberal accounts on Twitter which are still allowed to say things to make me laugh instead.
Dear Log Cabin Republicans: Your cohort Republicans don't respect you. They've shown you repeatedly, over decades, that they know you're suckers. They'll happily take your money and fundraising skills while they actively work to make it illegal and dangerous for you to exist. https://t.co/auMyrTAAdR

When Log Cabin Republicans come out they say, "Mom and Dad, I'm gay, but it's okay because I hate myself." To which their parents respond, "That's fine, because we're actually much more ashamed that you're a Republican"
