Donald Trump Doesn’t Want Fags To Have Shared Medical Benefits, Either

If there’s one thing Donald Trump can do, it is out-do Donald Trump. And he’s done it again with regard for his disdain for homosexuals, with the serial divorcée following up his opposition to same-sex marriage with a declaration in Iowa that gay couples don’t even deserve medical civil benefits: “no and no.”

      So what benefits are offered by Trump Enterprises?

      Just another person living in their own bubble and not understanding anything outside their own life. Makes me want to retch. He’s just pandering to what he “thinks” most Americans want to hear just like the Repubs. [can you say votes?] Sorry to say but, these people [Huckabee, Palin, Trump and company] are so wrong and NOT with the mainstream mindset. NEVER will there be a president willing to denigrate gay people. It is not the way to go. It is also not the way to attract voters. WE want to hear about jobs and the furthering of progress in America NOT about what others are doing “wrong” in their minds. Why can’t people state simply what they would like to see for America instead of cutting others down and COMPLAINING about so-called “faults?” Maybe, just maybe they have no answers and just want to reflect the attention AWAY from their own inadequacies…SB

      ADULTERER!

      Why do right-wingers love adultery and adulterers so much? You don’t see them throwing confirmed, admitted, and often repeat adulterers out of office or out of their party.

      I think the best punishment for Mr. Trump is to get him drunk, then have his nemesis, Rosie O’donnell molest him. That would send him to therapy for at least 3 years– that means–three years No Trump on TV,and the pursuit of peace and tranquillity for the rest of us. :)

      This story takes the quote out of context. What the interview actually says is:

      He was asked about same-sex marriages, and said he’s against them, and then initially said he didn’t have a “fully formed” opinion on whether gay couples should get the same benefits as married couples.

      So its still not good, but not quite as bad as Queerty makes it out to be.

      Donald Trump spoke at CPAC. With or without plans/hopes to run for office, his support could help an otherwise marginal candidate.

      His views on LGBs are offensive. So
      remind me why we’re *not* all boycotting Trump’s businesses, e.g. Ca$inos & hotels, etc.?

      He hates Rosie but supposedly loves Ellen, lol, so maybe it’s 50/50 for him.

      Of course he doesn’t. He is a corporate guys, if they had their way NOBODY would get medical benefits. People like him still wish it was 100 years ago and they could have 5 year olds working in their factory, and if they were killed you gave their parents $50.00 and told them, if they had another kid to send them down for a job.

      What can you expect from a republican? Its wired in their blood to hate and to discriminate. He doesn’t stand a chance of running, nobody takes him that seriously. He’ll go the way of Carl Paladino, into oblivion where he belongs. There are enough right wing nutjobs vying for the presidency as it is. Meanwhile, the Log Cabiners continue voting for and supporting them. What’s that all about I wonder, voting for people who don’t want you to have any rights let alone any dignity.

      If people cannot share the benefits they earn with their loved ones, those loved ones are far more likely to end up using government benefits, or going bankrupt (and medical bills are the #1 reason for personal bankruptcy in the US.)

      What’s “conservative” about driving people onto the dole or into bankruptcy?

      Marriage and shared benefits are just a part of gay people wanting to take personal responsibility for their loved ones.

      What’s “conservative” about laws that bar people from taking personal responsibility?

      The Donald runs for president. Hilarity ensues. Gotta love Rosie O’Donnell- she’s definitely one of the very few people to have publicly called Donald out on his boasting and he ranted and stomped his feet but she just laughed. Then he did what every loser does when they have lost the debate but won’t stop: he called her fat. Imagine him on the campaign circuit. He is so thin-skinned, it would be a tawdry reality show.

      No. 28, you make some very good points. Actually, marriage is a very conservative thing. Republicans should be overhwelmingly in support of marriage equality but we all know its about homophobia and kow-towing to the religious cults and the rest of the right wing lunatics in the tea party running the show. I’m convinced its all going to come crashing down for them when they find out the republicans have NO solution to job creation or health care or education reform. Its going to be business as usual, a Bush 43 redux. Voting republican is voting for no change.

None of them have any intellectual curiosity about anything and none can provide any facts to backup what they claim. Ten countries have already proved him wrong and more are on the way. He’s a sore loser and he knows the tide is turning against him and his dimwitted ilk.

      It is not the decision of any heterosexual man to dictate the civil rights of gay people. They will not dish out equality as they see fit. Meet all these types of bastards in the court room and let them rant and rave as much as they want away from us. It doesn’t mean anything.

      Ron writes:

      Once again we see what homophobes really think of the institution of marriage: according to Ron, marriage is just playing house.

      Maybe Ron is afraid that same-sex couples will be so much better at marriage than hets are, it will shame hets into behaving like decent human beings for a change.

      @Harbo: Trump is a liar. He will not ever run and he knows it because the first thing to discussed which he never ever wants to admit is that the day he was born he was sitting on 50 million dollars of his daddys money. And what year was that. Sometime in the late 1940s? Right after WWII when most people had nothin!!! It is very difficult to pull off being the mans man to the working class when you were born with a silver spoon so far up your ass it is coming out your mouth. He is a joke. He is a one liner. He is not up to the task and we all know he is just a conservative fuck attempting to score browie points by throwing gay people under the bus. That is the strategy of a SMALL PETTY EVIL LITTLE TURD.

      @the crustybastard:
      Republicans are not logical. These people are NOT even true conservatives, they’re neo-cons- people obsessed with out of date values, violence and religion. A reasonably intelligent conservative would appreciate the idea that gays are interested in marriage. I’d love to see the day when an Independent or a Libertarian wins out over the Republican party. Perhaps in 100 years their values will be obsolete. So far even these candidates tend to be too conservative; subtly anti-gay and anti-choice- but there is hope!
