In a pair of tweets Friday Donald Trump is trying to convince us that he is a great friend of the LGBT community:
….on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!

Sure Mr. Trump. Sure. Here is a list that I compiled in December, 2017. I am sure that there has been much more since then. Just last week Trump announced that he would not sign the Equality Act into law. The bottom line is that Trump is no friend of ours and never has been. Trump is a racist-transphobic-homophobic-bigot. He is far more interested in pleasing hate group leader Tony Perkins than doing the right thing for us.
The “global campaign” is just another Trump lie. Richard Grenell announced something a month or so ago but no one has done anything. Grenell is pretty much it. To the best of my knowledge there is still no LGBT White House staffer.
I have to admit that “LGBT for Trump” causes me to come unglued. I become like the Baptist preacher who finds out that his son, 16-year-old Levi, has a boyfriend. I want to reach out and touch someone … with a fucking sledge hammer.
