Surprising no one, Donald “Ask the Gays” Trump’s spokesperson Katrina Pierson turns out to be not so friendly to “the gays.”
Dominic Holden of Buzzfeed finds several anti-LGBT comments in Pierson’s Twitter history, such as the one below.
When asked about the tweets Pierson replied:
“It’s a long reach to go back to 2012 to try to create a new hit piece and call it relevant,” Pierson wrote to BuzzFeed News in an email. “You’ll also find that as a grassroots volunteer for multiple campaigns, it’s quite common that Twitter is a platform to promote/defend the policies and values of the candidates at the time. Many times, it’s about engaging trolls which can lead to humorous and sarcastic banter.”
Saying “it’s a long reach to go back to 2012” is an interesting comments considering the entire Trump campaign against Hillary Clinton is about “reaching back” much, much further than 4 years.
@michael_atx You will never for acceptance, but you could win coexistance. Gay is not normal, accept that.
