Donald Trump held another fundraiser at his Mar-A-Lago residence in Florida on Wednesday evening. This one was for John Gibbs, a former Trump administration official, who is running to unseat a Michigan GOP lawmaker Rep. Peter Meijer who voted to impeach Trump last year.
Among those attending appears to be a small group of gay supporters.
When the former President addressed the crowd, someone shouted out “Gays for Trump!”
Trump heard it and looked in the direction of the voice.
“Where’s Gays for Trump?” he asked.
Someone responds, “We’re over here!”
Trump looks at them and jokingly says, “You don’t look gay.”
The crowd all laughs, before Trump goes on to say, “We did great with the gay population, as you know.”

Peter Boykin, the founder of the Gays for Trump organization, told Newsweek that many in the group, “Probably wouldn’t ‘look gay’ because it’s a stereotype that fits more with the typical ‘look’ of leftist LGBT. Not saying some of us might look fabulous and ‘gay.’
“Otherwise it was a suit and tie event, so unless one of us was wearing a joker suit, meh.”

In case you need reminding, between 2017 and 2021, the advocacy group GLAAD kept a running count of all the Trump administration’s attacks on LGBTQ people. It totaled 181 by the time Trump left office, including his ban on trans people serving in the military and a move to allow federal employers to discriminate against LGBTQ just days before his departure from the White House.
A grifter grifts.
A habitual liar continues to lie.
I bet the Republican gays would shudder at being called queer, just like the Dems.
It’s all an exercise in narcissism, insecurities and cringe.
Also, about half of “gay’ Republicans” are big ass queens. So, the not being a “leftist stereotype” is both dumb and incorrect. But anything to defend Trump, to shade “Liberals”, and to deflect from your own reasonings and issues.
Maybe they had those “fashy” (fascist) haircuts, they’re hideous and very un-gay!
Trump goes on to say, “We did great with the gay population, as you know.”
if the gays in the crowd did’t realize Trump has done zero to help gays, it is very pathetic and those Trumper gays deserve what they get. he only said he wanted to cure AIDS but where’s the results? more snake oil sales on a soap box shouting. give him your money and support, and watch his wallet grow like his belly.
@Max The best thing Trump did to protect LGBT (and everyone else) were his efforts to ban muslims/middle easterners from entering our country. For those who only watch CNN, the Quran is basically a textbook sized death warrant for homosexuals, and heavily discriminates against all the rest. Their religion and inherent violent nature is the perfect recipe for disaster. Take the Pulse Club shooting for example. Preventable tragedies sometimes have a way of jolting people to their senses, and probably how ‘gays for Trump’ became a thing
@jt1990 Yes, so good of you to call out religious extremism! You are so right that religious extremism is toxic and lethal to anyone who loves freedom and America. You also believe that the Christian extremists in this country are a threat to queer people. You also support outing and shaming modern day fascists, because you are a loving, peaceful and proud American! God bless!
@jt1990 As a married gay man who lives next door to several Muslim families, I can 100% tell you these people are not extreme and wanting to kill me or my husband. There are extremists in EVERY religion. I’m more concerned about Christian extremists in this country far more than a Muslim one. Just based on geography. LOL
And the Christian Bible endorses slavery. Anyone can twist religious doctrine to suit political and cultural ends.
Also many muslim-americans are highly educated, because they’ve been encouraged to do well academically by their immigrant parents. That academic achievement and empathy for other marginalized groups means that educated Muslims are much more likely to support gay and trans rights than educated Christians, who have never experienced marginalization themselves.
It’s already causing a reformation within American Muslim communities, and young Muslims may not need to feel like they are forced to choose between their family and their own personal happiness in the coming decades. But that really depends on how much solidarity there is between Muslim and Queer activists.
Young, educated Muslims are already dropping hate. They don’t see a reason to hang on to it, especially when it just pits marginalized people against each other and makes gay Muslims feel damaged by the religion.
Queerty, the place to doomscroll.
Garbage person, thoughtlessly homophobic comment, cultist followers, no surprise at all when it comes to psycho traitor liar and self-admitted sexual assaulter Don the Con!
Gays For Trump.
The group that, when they finally held a National event had less than 10 people show up.
10 is a nice number for a cocaine-fueled orgy!
“Gays for Trump” is analogous to Turkeys for Thanksgiving.
According to GLAAD and a few other reputable surveys, among all LGBTQ voters, 81% voted for President-elect Biden and 14% for President Trump. Among first-time LGBTQ voters, 86% voted for President-elect Biden, 10% for President Trump. This is actually fewer than voted for Trump in 2016.
So, as pretty much everyone assumes, Trump’s statement about doing well with gays is simply another lie. Just as his claim to be winning over a large %age of blacks was.
That fool is still talking about the same shit he was talking about 104 years ago, and NO we dont know that you did well with gays. These asswipers are still listening to that OLD WHITE WOMAN!
