Yesterday, I reported on the numerous resignations by Log Cabin Republicans over the conservative LGBTQ organization’s recent endorsement of Donald Trump for reelection.
Today, Log Cabin spokesman Charles Moran went into defense mode on Fox News explaining that the “LGBT community is better off than it was four years ago.”
“Like so many disaffected Republicans who have not been comfortable with President Trump and with his record, I look at the question of, ‘Is America is better off now than it was four years ago and is the LGBT community is better off now than it was four years ago?’“
And under President Trump, the answer is inarguably, yes. President Trump is the first person elected president of the United States who supported gay marriage and also has a background supporting equality issues both as a businessman and as a philanthropist.
“We always try to follow the rule of trust but verify. And looking at President Trump’s appointments, appointing people in our organization, taking meetings with our organization, and just really advancing the big causes that are important to the LGBTQ community.”
If Moran were to ask ME if we’re ‘better off,’ I’d point him to these 123 times the Trump administration has attacked the LGBTQ community.
