He is a gay man lying to his constituents that he is a straight man as he votes to restrict human rights for other gays, all the while pursuing a gay lifestyle in secret.

And you find nothing wrong with that? Am I "understanding" you correctly?

As someone who typically votes republican, I always laugh when this happens.

Live and let live. If you canít find it in yourself to do that, you deserve whatever you get.

Not strange at all.

One is deflection, and one is accusatory.

This politician was trying to deflect any thoughts that anyone would have by acting in a very anti-gay way. He was " screaming" for himself.

Trumps accusers, aren't deflecting, but actually pointing out facts about the man, and some may sound very frustrated, because it's unbelievable that this vile human is still in office. Their " screaming " is justified.

Neither do most Republicans, even though some might be. Of course Democrats, for the most part, are the anti-religion party. It's a party of amoral, God-hating heathens.

I think most hardcore anti-gay people are either gay or bisexual, and it's a coping mechanism, a rather poor one.

I'm going to respectfully disagree and say the DNC is the party of poverty. They need a permanent underclass to control while promising free stuff.

They do; however, continue to pander with identity politics.

Which group of people is immune to having members that don't lie, cheat and solicit sex online?

Gay people are the same as straight people with the exception of being attracted to the same sex. Yes, they are born that way, and who they date, have sex with or fall in love with doesn't really affect you are I.

Seriously, you don't need to shout that you're a family values candidate to give that impression and sell that message. Do you think Bill had Hillary and Chelsea by his side for the fun of it??
Sadly, their "values" are not traditional America values. Abortion is not an "American value." Neither are "open borders," "free" handouts for everyone, "social justice" (which isn't a legal term, and it isn't even 'justice' at all), and all the other made up "issues" that the Leftists rally around.

Something is not a "right" if it must be paid for. But, these new so-called "rights" they have made up are what the Leftists are calling "American values." They are not.
