Dan Savage: Trump Is ‘Enemy of the LGBT Community’ Pretending to Be Our Friend

Originally published on Mediaite:

Dan Savage appeared with Chris Hayes last night to discuss Donald Trump‘s recent attempts to frame himself as a bigger friend of the LGBT community than Hillary Clinton. Why would this be the case? Because, as Trump argues, he’s more committed to fighting radical Islamists, who want to kill gays, than she is.

Savage told Hayes, “We’re not gonna fall for it” because “Muslims are a part of the LGBT community too.”

“Donald Trump is the enemy of the LGBT community,” he said, “just as he is an enemy of the Muslim community, and beating up on what is in the United States a vulnerable minority group isn’t a way that you impress other members of other vulnerable minority groups.”

Both he and Hayes also talked about Orlando and how encouraging the reaction has been to a targeting of a gay nightclub, compared to how the LGBT community was treated years ago.
