I can’t answer because:
” So if he appoints no gays he is a bigot, and if he appoints a gay, he is a bigot. Is that your view?”
implies “His decision will determine whether or not he is a bigot”.
How can this one decision do that?
I’ll math it:
If I find 99 examples of “Trump is a bigot” and you find 1 example of “Trump is not a bigot”, does that one example erase the 99?
He has also supported policies that do bad things to people who are not his friends and friends of political buddies that are gays, minorities and women.
If gays, minorities and women are saying en masse, “Thank you, Trump, we feel represented now”, then good.
But if they saying en masse, “Uncle Tom, ‘just for show’, “they’re traitors”, then it’s just for show to impress his followers.
I grew up with Trump not far from me in the 80s. Always in the news. I was there during the Central Park 5 situation when he called for their execution in a full page ad.
I knew of him in the 90s during bankrupcy hearings, rumors of tax evasion, the awful things he testified in court about in the 90s with the Indian casinos…
I stopped paying attention to him by the 2000s. Never saw the Apprentice.
Trump’s a bigot, even if he never ran for President.
“of Trump”. Grew up in Jersey. Always in the news. Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Ivanka Trump – he was almost cute in an rich, imbicile way. But the Central Park 5 ad soured my view of him.
Then the crap he said during the Indian casino hearings in the early 90s. I remember his bankrupcies. I know folks in construction that got ripped off during the Taj Mahal building in Atlantic City.
I never saw the Apprentice.
He’s a wealthy Archie Bunker who scammed his way through life on daddy’s money and increasing the private debt problem in the USA. I was fine ’til he wanted to be President.
Patrick Bumatay is a Federalist Society pick. I actually don’t mind them too much. It’s basic Libertarian stuff.
Gorsuch is Federalist Society too. I also don’t mind him.
Kavanough though is of the Session/Bannon side of things which I’m not happy about.
As far as Patrick Bumatay being openly gay? Well, good for him.
Trump’s nothing special. Not Hitler, not annointed by God for America. Basic Flim-flam guy with political connections. He’s you’re friend as long as you laugh at all his jokes. We all know people like that. Touchy but will treat you to dinner if you’re entertaining and smile at the right times.
It’s the Walmarts of the agriculture world to watch out for. So big they don’t have to care.
