Donald Trump Needs To Work Harder On Humiliating Gays To Win Bryan Fischer’s Adoration

You might’ve thought, with his adherence to keeping gays from getting married because it feels like the right thing to do, that Donald Trump would be on track to scoring an endorsement from Bryan Fischer, the bobblehead of the garage band known as the American Family Association. But as it turns out, even Trump doesn’t hate gays enough for Fischer.

Scribbling on a napkin, Fischer wonders aloud:

I’ve got some questions for Trump on the issue of gay marriage and the homosexual agenda. Does he believe the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is constitutional? Does he believe President Obama violated his oath of office by refusing to defend this law in court? Does he support a federal marriage amendment that would define marriage as a one-man, one-woman institution and prohibit marriage counterfeits like civil unions and domestic partnerships? Would he reverse President Obama’s decision to grant certain spousal benefits to the sexual partners of homosexuals, contrary to DOMA? Would he support reinstatement of the ban on open homosexual service in the military? Would he veto the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) if it came to his desk? Would he sign a repeal of the Hate Crimes act, which will criminalize speech that is critical of homosexual behavior?

I’m further troubled, frankly, by Trump’s obsession with himself. I’ve rarely heard him speak more than two consecutive sentences without praising himself extravagantly in some way, and talking about how much money he made in this situation and that situation. He is utterly enamored with his own brilliance, shrewdness and cunning. The Proverbs say, “Let another praise you, and not your own mouth.” It’s time for a president who has some scintilla of humility about his own capacities, and Trump is clearly not that man. Quiet strength and confidence is one thing, preening arrogance quite another.

What if Trump promises to push for a constitution amendment banning gay marriage, but insists on naming it after himself — would that be enough of compromise?

      Well, let’s take Mr. Fischer’s words, and turn them on himself, since he seems blind: “I’m further troubled, frankly, by Fischer’s obsession with gay people. I’ve rarely heard him speak more than two consecutive sentences without praising himself extravagantly in some way, while denigrating gays and what they do in this situation and that situation.”

      I suppose, after they’re done with their stated goals, they’ll get to the one they really want — outlawing us again, and hunting us down I guess. I suppose then, that Trump could up the ante, take a gamble and just call for more punitive measures. Should make Fischer happy. Since Fischer is obsessed with his definition of happiness which all must hold. Or else.

      We should bring up Rosie ODonnell so we can get overweight people to our side since he was so disgraceful with his public comments calling her a fat pig. That should pretty much finish him off

      As much as I think Fischer and Trump are about equal at douchebaggery, I have to say that the second paragraph of the printed remarks, where Fischer talks about Trump’s self obsession, is pretty spot on.

      @Justiceontherocks: Until you use your real name, post your credentials to cimment here & list all orgs to which you belong, I’m not reading another word you write: lol

      Fischer and Trump would be equal contenders in the IEO (Inflated Ego Olýmpics).

      Trump’s interest in nat’l politics seems fleeting, but a run for mayor someday? I wouldn’t put it past him. Half the boroughs would end up renamed after him or his offspring, or his wife, but his idea of turning Central Park into a casïno is brilliant.

      @Jeffree: If I had told Jimmy Olsen that my real name is JeffreeSoupyJustice and that I am a well known crap troll he wouldnKt believe it anyway.

      Running for President is hard work. Trump isn’t big on that. He’ll bow out soon.

      Bryan Fischer rejecting Donald Trump is like a cockroach rejecting a pile of sh*t. It’s the ultimate who cares moment.
