Man oh man, will Donald Trump ever catch a break?
As June draws to a close, Trump’s usual band of Berkeley professor critics and lefty snowflakes have excoriated the president for failing to recognize LGBTQ Pride month this year. He hasn’t declared it Pride month when June began and he hasn’t so much as tweeted about the celebration.
That’s no real reason to think he is failing the LGBTQ community, right?? Trump had, after all, mildly scolded members of his party for their intolerance and once even waved a Pride flag upside down. So it came as a surprise to one, maybe two people that the president seemingly chose not to celebrate LGBTQ pride this year.
Give him a break, guys: Trump had plenty of good reasons to skip Pride.
Perhaps if we all approached the president with a little more empathy and a few less fiery tweets, we could all come to a place of understanding.
Here are the real, totally understandable reasons President Trump likely didn’t celebrate LGBTQ Pride this year.
1. He really wanted to, he’s just still busy trying to win the election against Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!
