Orange Is The New Jackass candidate Donald Trump’s campaign slogan has been appropriated by an LGBT rights group. The reality TV star/ blowhard-turned-politician just found himself in the sights of the Human Rights Campaign who is is selling baseball hats with the slogan
“Make America Gay Again”
The back of the cap has HRC’s equality logo, and “LGBTQ Equality”.
As you may know, Trump has a pretty poor record on LGBT rights, though he has signalled a shift away from opposing same-sex marriage directly. Trump made an off-the-top-of-his-head speech to the anti-gay, right-wing hate group Family Research Council in which he bizarrely did not once mention God, Jesus, gay people, LGBT rights or any of the group’s goals once. He also failed to mention or acknowledge the guest of honor, anti-gay marriage clerk, Kim Davis.
When asked flat-out whether he is homophobic, Trump said:
“No, I think that I’m a very nice person. I love people.”
Well, anyway, isn’t there someone on your list who would love (or hate) this hat? It’s available from the HRC store for $26, with all profits going to the group’s advocacy work, so it’s a win/win. How about homophobic Uncle Jim in Alabama?
