Out of all the criticisms of Donald Trump, the one I’ve never understood is that he’s somehow anti-gay. The Trump/Pence ticket was supposed to have put up conversion-therapy camps all across America by now, right? Yet somehow it hasn’t happened. With all the legitimate reasons for a person to oppose Trump, they still keep making stuff up.
Pete Buttigieg has been capitalizing on this, depicting himself as some sort of victim. He wants you to think Trump is oppressing him. He just can’t seem to get Trump to play along.
Check out this clip from an interview Trump just gave to Steve Hilton, which will air on Fox News this Sunday night. Hilton asks what Trump thinks of Buttigieg’s marriage:

“I think it’s absolutely fine… I think it’s great. I think it’s something that perhaps some people will have a problem with. I have no problem with it whatsoever. I think it’s good.”
Is that not the right answer, libs?
Now, that’s not to say Trump is a big fan of Buttigieg. The other day he referred to Mayor Pete as “Alfred E. Neuman,” which is kind of funny. And Buttigieg said he had to Google “Alfred E. Neuman” because he’s not old like Trump, which is also kind of funny. But Trump is teasing him for looking like a dork, not for being gay. Trump insults everybody who’s a threat to him. It’s nothing new, and there’s no reason to expect Buttigieg to be exempt.
Besides, isn’t Alfred E. Neuman a sort of trickster god, always humiliating people who are too full of themselves? I wouldn’t want to mess with Neuman. Take the compliment, Pete.
