In the wake of last Friday’s Supreme Court ruling that gay and lesbian Americans have the right to marry because, well, land of the free, home of the brave, and equality, all of the Presidential candidates have been discussing the issue.
Of course, the Democrats are pleased as punch with the ruling while some in the GOP were not; Mike Huckabee has said he will call on the wrath of God, or something, and Ted Cruz stomped his feet. But, it’s Donald [t]Rump who gave the most WTF answer, I think.
In an interview with CNN, host Jake Tapper asked the several-times-bankrupt, both morally and financially, presidential candidate how his three … three … marriages were morally justified if he believed only in so-called “traditional marriage” values.
Trump wavered a bit and said that while his views are “evolving” — Look! He’s trying to 'Obama' the conversation — his campaign position is that only “traditional marriage” between “a man and a woman” should be legal.
So, Tapper wanted to know how that’s possible since [t]Rump has had three “one-man-one-woman” marriages himself:
“What do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says, ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?'”
"Well, they have a very good point, but I’ve been a very hardworking person …”
And we’ll stop because what the f**k does that mean? Traditional marriage is only for hardworking people and The Gays are not hardworking? But let’s allow [t]Rump to continue …
“And actually, I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now. My [first] two wives were very good.”
“But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man?”
“I really don’t say anything. I’m just, Jake, I’m for traditional marriage.”
And, there you have it. The reason Donald [t]Rump is not for same-sex marriage is … because.
That’s so presidential.
