The shout came after the first mention of Hillary Clinton’s name at Tuesday night’s Donald Trump rally in North Carolina: An opening speaker had called her “Crooked Hillary.” There was a smattering of laughs inside the Greensboro Coliseum. Many of the attendees were boozy-eyed. Many had turned to their neighbors and rolled their eyes, while a few people clapped in the stands.
But now it was Trump making the case that Clinton wouldn’t help the LGBT community because of her ties to countries that openly discriminated against women and gays, all the while belaboring the shooter’s Muslim immigrant parents fromAfghanistan, the words spit out like they tasted foul.
“And she’s no friend of L … G … B … TAmericans. She’s no friend. Believe me.”
“The gays had it coming!” a man shouted and gazed back at the guy who’d called Hillary a bitch. They met eyes, shared a smile, a look of recognition.
As if it were some kind of joke.
What on earth is going on? You had better believe the whole world is watching this with their mouths agape. Ireland was the first country to approve same-sex marriage. We don’t take too kindly to that sort of talk so it probably isn’t surprising that Trump has cancelled his trip to Ireland. I think it would be met with vociferous protests.
The GOP must be beside themselves by now. They are well and truly fucked. Trump has exposed them.
