The gay community is overjoyed after Donald Trump announced his views on same-sex marriage are “evolving.”
“This is incredible,” one gay person said. “Just incredible. All I’ve ever wanted was Donald Trump’s approval of my marriage.”
“Words can’t describe how pleased I am to hear this,” another gay person added. “I think I’m going to wear a Donald Trump signature silk tie to my wedding now.”
During an interview with gay MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts before Saturday’s Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, Trump said he was inspired by President Obama’s change of heart.
“I think I’m evolving,” he explained, “and I think I’m a very fair person, but I have been for traditional marriage.”
Then he added: “I am for a marriage between a man and a woman.”
Trump himself has been married three times.
During the interview, he also expressed regret for holding the pageant in Russia given the country’s extreme antigay laws.
“Perhaps we should have known and we didn’t,” he said, “and after we signed it became quite clear.”
He continued: “We have a lot of gay people who work at Miss Universe, and we said, ‘What do you think?’ And they said, ‘We want to go. We want to show our stuff.'”
Even Rosie O’Donnell, Trump’s longtime lesbian enemy, is said to be over the moon with his announcement. In the past, Trump has called Rosie “disgusting,” “a fat pig,” and a “failure.”
A source close to the comedian said: “Obviously, Rosie is ecstatic over Trump’s evolution. She’s thinking of writing a poem about it for her blog. Of course, she can’t help but wonder what part she played in his change of heart. This is very good news.”
Very good news, indeed. It makes us want to break out a bottle of Trump “Super Premium” Vodka and celebrate.
So his views haven’t changed according to him.
Oh, and a quick side note since we don’t seem to be hearing this anywhere.
Enders came not only had a massive 62% drop in it’s second weekend. BUT, after two full weekends in release it is still far below where “Gravity” was after only one weekend, and even further below World War Z, which was considered a disappointment.
Additionally last weekend not only was it beaten by “Thor” but it was beaten by
Bad Grandpa (Which has been out a week longer than Enders Game)
So on only it’s second weekend, it has fallen more than 60%, hasn’t even reached $45 million, AND is still $10 million below Gravity after Gravity’s first weekend.
Without any advertising costs Enders Game cost nearly $110 million. Looks like that boycott was more effective than the bigots were hoping.
@Cam: Who knows.. maybe no one’s talking about it in the hopes that people will forget about the controversy and go see the film still? Or avoid a “resurrection” of the film?
It’s ironic that Ender’s Game came in 5th behind a film about Turkeys.
I think Ender’s Game’s days are more than numbered… especially since The Hunger Games sequel is but a few weeks away. Our man Thor should be good to hold off Orson Scott Card for a while until Katniss can take over.
The article does not actually say anything about what Trump exactly said. It read more like an Onion story to me. Pretty bad job.
This is the equivalent of somebody in 1946 declaring they are “evolving” on whether or not to support the Allied cause against the Nazis.

@Cam</I hate to burst your bubble but while I'm pleased that Ender's Game has not done as well as expected its under performance came because the Young Adult audience (15-34) stayed home, crushing any hopes for a sequel. As much as I'd like to think that it was a gay "boycott" that kept away this age group I wouldn't bet my cover charge money on it.
Who gives a shit about Trump? He has received more government welfare than any other single individual in the USA. It’t time to flush him back into the gutter.
@Kieran: so all gay people are over 34 years of age?
@Kieran: woops sorry, that was meant for @Alan down in Florida:
Like the people cited in the article, I’m truly overjoyed that Mr. Trump is evolving on the issue of gay marriage. I can’t wait that he finally approves it. I always had eyes for his older son. Maybe he and I will marry!
Who is rejoicing? Why does anyone care about what he thinks?
Describes exactly how I felt when Obama said he personally “evolved” on the issue.
@Alan down in Florida:
People under 30 are the most pro-LGBT generation. The fact that OSC is a homophobe made it socially distasteful to watch Enders. So, yeah, the publicity about a boycott worked for their age groups.
For persons who are 30 and above, who actually read the book and are fans, the boycott worked to lessen their enthusiasm of the movie. No midnight lines, waiting for the first showing. Unlike LoTR. Unlike Narnia. Unlike ….
I can think of few neologisms that nauseate me much as “evolve.” I wonder – at what point did we become The Donald’s moral equals?
Is that article for real? Why would gay people or anyone give a rats ass what Trump says about marriage equality? He is uber creepy and no more evolved than that ridiculous hairdo. Golly gee wiz. If Donald Trump says it’s OK for gays to marry, then I guess it is okay. What a crock!
Was this article written with sarcasm, because if not, that is the way I read it..totally tongue in cheek reportage. I can’t believe that this narcissist’s opinion would matter to anybody.
I got choked up as I read this. Seriously, there was a tear. I named it D’Nolda Trumpette and kissed it after wiping it from my cheek. I now feel more confident than ever to raise my gaybies in such an accepting time.
What I mean is this article made me giggle a smidge.
I worked for Donald Trump for many years. He’s a fair guy overall. Honestly, I don’t think he cares one way or the other about who marries who and he’s not stupid, the gays have taste and more importantly, disposable income (DINKs). He’s just caught up in that uber-macho BS world where the guys constantly talk about t*ts and a$$, sports and money. It’s no biggie. It’s just the way it is.
Its no biggie its just the way it is?
Are you serious?
People like Donald for years have expressed anti gay sentiments as well as protested against our abilities and opportunities and freedoms to marry that one special person that we love so much.
So yes it is a BIGGIE im afraid especially for our human dignity and equal rights as Americans and human beings people like Donald constantly infringe upon those rights and continuously create and even bigger detriment to our community with their uneducated commentaries about the gay community.
I think I’ll wait to see how much of his money Trump puts where his mouth is. Frankly, at this point, I’d be more likely to trust the women who just left Westboro Baptist.
It should be fun, however, to read the incoherent reaction of Trump buddy $arah Palin, when she takes a break from shilling her new Christmas book.
