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...

So what other choice do they have at this point besides voting for the poster child of political corruption Hillary Clinton? She's a lying puppet who will stop at nothing to quench her thirst for power. Mark my words Simon she is going to start all kinds of wars in the middle east. How can anyone trust this woman?
Check this out. http://edition.cnn.com/2016/06/16/politics/state-department-syria/ If Hillary wins the election, more wars for Israel!
Racist, bigot Trump..... How I despise that piece of useless human flesh!!!!!!! Hoping our American friends rid the airways of this piece of garbage for good in November. FS
For months the media has been giving Trump what he wants and feeds off: attention. In some sick way, the media's attention created the momentum that put this monstrous bigot within arms reach of the white house, not to mention the republican party's complete failure in putting forward a viable candidate for presidency. The events of the last week have illustrated overwhelmingly that it's time for lights out on any further Trump coverage and let the process get rid of him somehow.
hi MC...I agree that Hillary Clinton is not an ideal choice. And yes I fear that some scandal might engulf her. But sometimes who have to choose between two lesser evils, and Trump is a dangerous demagogue and even more likely than Clinton to plunge us into war.So while I'm supporting Bernie Sanders' movement for real change, if I was an American I would hold my nose and vote for Clinton...
hi MC...well I don't agree with that call to attack the Assad regime, for the same reasons I would vote for Clinton. Assad is a bastard, but destroying him would give ISIS a free hand, and they're even worse. And since the Assad regime is supported by Iran, and Trump has al but declared war on that country, he's even more likely than Clinton to declare war on Assad. All these calls for war are truly disturbing, but since we live in a dangerous world we must make some uncomfortable choices...
hi FS...well the good news is that Clinton is opening up an even bigger lead in the polls. Even a lot of Republicans are trying to block Trump's nomination. So hopefully if we give Trump enough rope he will hang himself...
hi bcwaterboy...I completely agree with you. CNN all but created the Trump phenomenon. Their blanket coverage at the start of the campaign both helped him, and helped CNN get record ratings. But the good news is that CNN now seems to have realized its mistake, and has reduced its coverage of Trump's rallies considerably. But don't hold your breath hoping that they will give Trump a pass, because it's just not going to happen...
