In a desperate attempt to win her father’s love, Tiffany Trump hit the campaign trail on his behalf, headlining a bizarre Pride rally in Tampa over the weekend that led to questions about her sobriety.
“It’s such an honor to be able to be here and speak truthfully, honestly from my heart what I know my father believes in,” Tiffany, who may or may not have been intoxicated, said giddily during in her brief remarks before a sparse room. “Prior to politics, he supported gays, lesbians, LGBQIA+ [sic] community, OK?”

In slurred speech, Tiffany went on to say that it deeply “saddens” her that so many people “unfortunately” read “fabricated lies” on social media about her father’s repeated and unending attacks on LGBTQ equality and for some reason believe he’s antigay.
“My father has always supported all of you, OK?” she said.
Later in her rambling and barely coherent speech, Tiffany became overly emotional when she introduced her mother, Marla Maples, then shared a story about how her mom’s anonymous gay friend, a Broadway actor Tiffany never met, who died of AIDS. Then she talked about how her dad was going to find a cure for AIDS in the next 10 years.
“There will be [a cure] and god bless!” Tiffany said.

The awkward event was organized by a group called “Trump Pride”, which claims to be “a diverse coalition dedicated to re-electing President Trump, the first President to begin his presidency in support of marriage equality.”
The “diverse coalition” is helmed by a six-person advisory board, all of whom are white men except for one white female.
Here’s how Twitter responded to Tiffany’s “Trump Pride” appearance…
OMG!!! There is extended footage! There are like 14 people in the entire room for Tiffany Trump’s drunk speech. Holy crap this is pathetic. pic.twitter.com/eDHh0QHCC0

You can tell Trump doesn’t care about LGBT people because he has his least favourite child assigned to the job. https://t.co/nOdNOqevOC
