As if it hasn't been a brutal enough week for the LBGT community. So many deaths, so much grief.
And so much anger over the way people like Donald Trump are using their tragedy and their pain to try to hurt others.
By whipping up hatred against Muslims, Mexican-Americans, refugees and others, while ignoring the hatred that killed their brothers and sisters. Homophobia, the beast that lives in so many.
So as you can imagine, this was like adding insult to injury.
The sight of Donald Trump, asking Americans to "ask the gays" why they prefer him The Donald, rather than the terrorist stooge Hillary Clinton.
And suggesting that THEY support HIM, because they also hate Muslims.
Which needless to say came as quite a shock to about 95% of LGBT Americans.
This is what some guy wrote on Trump's Twitter site as soon as he claimed them as his own.
YOU FAT ORANGE BRO.
Which did it for me.
But fortunately because it is the gay community, who know how to laugh even in the face of murderous hatred and bigotry, others were more creative .

But still got the message across.
If you hadn't lost us at your racism, bigotry or elitism you would have lost us with that hair... #askthegays pic.twitter.com/GeAewqS6rF— Bobby Hall (@BobbyTBD) June 16, 2016
Bye bye hair, or bye bye bigot.
Any LBGT person who supports Donald Trump, will be seen as a traitor or an idiot.
Or a stooge like Kim Christie...
Who has finally found his right role in life, fetching burgers for his master.
“[Christie] has transformed himself into a sort of manservant, who is constantly with Trump at events,” Ryan Lizza wrote in the magazine’s June 20 issue. Lizza also said one anonymous Republican source told him a friend on Trump’s campaign “used Snapchat to send him a video of Christie fetching Trump’s McDonald’s order.”
And will like him be shamed FOREVER.
So I think I can predict where this story is going. The gay people of America will make it clear that they could NEVER support a bigot like Trump.
Not when murderous bigotry killed these brothers and sisters...
And they were not like that, they were better than him.
So when they've finished mourning those lost lives, they will pull themselves together, as they have had to do so many times in the course of their long battle for equality, and freedom from prejudice and violence.
They will organize, join their straight friends and allies in the battle to stop Trump.
And in the name of the dead, they will help destroy him...
