Yesterday, birthday boy Donald Trump went to great lengths to align himself with what he called “the LB and LGBT community.” Just two years ago, though, his support wasn’t quite so effusive when he called in to Fox & Friends to discuss Michael Sam’s history-making post-draft kiss.
Birthday boy Donald Trump’s response to the kiss is incoherent at best, but we’ve transcribed his comments in full anyway:
We’ve become so politically correct in this country that the country is going to hell. People are afraid to talk. They’re afraid to express their own thoughts. I’ve heard many people — I’m not even speaking for myself, but I’ve heard many people that thought the display after he was chosen was inappropriate.
And whether or not it was, I don’t know. But it was certainly out there a little bit. And I’m very happy that he got chosen. I’m all for it. I think it’s great that he got chosen. I hope he does so well.
But I thought, when he... you know, when—when he was really going at it. I mean, whether—that... I-I haven’t seen anything like that in a while. He was really going at it. And, yet, when Tebow did his thing, which a lot of people thought was totally fine, he was just criticized so badly. So, I guess you could say there is a double standard. You know, it’s sad.
Presumably, birthday boy Trump is referring to Tebow’s celebratory peck with Demaryius Thomas from 2011. Is he saying that if we can be outraged when two straight men kiss, we should be able to express outrage when two gay men kiss, as well? It’s hard to say what he means by any of it, exactly.
Judging from his stammering and garbled sentiments, though, it would that something about these two men “really going at it” made him uneasy.
