Donald Trump: 'I'd Vote for a Gay Presidential Candidate'
Geraldo Rivera interviewed Donald Trump on Thursday, and the conversation took a very unexpected turn.
When Rivera asked Trump, "would Americans vote for a gay man to be president?" Trump replied, "I think so. I think there would be some that wouldn't, and I wouldn't be among that group, to be honest with you. I think that it doesn't seem to be hurting Pete Buttigieg."
Trump continued by saying, "But there would certainly be a group that probably wouldn't. But you and I would not be in that group."
"We would not," Rivera confirmed.
TMZ was quick to point out the contrast between Trump's statements and those of Rush Limbaugh, the man Trump just awarded the Medal of Freedom to. "Okay, how's this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What's going to happen there?" Limbaugh said on his radio show.
So #Gayes are you buying this at all? Do you think Trump would vote for a gay candidate? Or do you think his ideals are more on point with his friend Limbaugh's?
