Donald Trump Compares Gay Marriage To Ugly Golf Clubs

Donald Trump, gay marriage

Donald Trump continues to offend our gay blog sensibilities. The latest reason:

During a lengthy conversation in his 61st-floor suite at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, amid the Trump-branded room service menus and bottles of Trump Ice water, Mr. Trump provided ample fodder for supporters and skeptics — waxing about foreign policy and his TV ratings, displaying a detailed understanding of the political landscape and a curious insensitivity toward potential voters.

At one point, he compared his opposition to the legalization of same-sex marriage to his reluctance to use a new kind of putter.

“It’s like in golf,” he said. “A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive,” said Mr. Trump, a Republican. “It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”

Ah yes. Good thing he doesn’t want to sound trivial…

  • I’m not sure they’re your friends when you hire them.

  • I think Mr. Trump should have to disclose proof of having gay friends. I just can’t believe it without proof…

  • I compare his hair to an baboons ass….

    to read that the donald said “I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay” if he had GAY friends his hair would not look the way it dose right and how dare he use the word fabulous and what is his problem with people using really long putters. Oh I know ! It’s that he said he has a short one maybe it’s some kind of envy

    Traditionalist in this case being a twice-divorced skirt-chaser. I wish he would stick to the golfing tradition of keeping one’s mouth shut.

    The man appears to be a buffoon, does he not?

  • Mr. Trump. Your hair renders all of your points and rebuttals invalid. thank you.

  • He’s a buffoon who we can’t pay attention to anymore.

  • Per

    Most compelling point so far against equality under the law, Mr. Chump. With arguments like that, we might as well give up…

    I…what?

  • Long-form or short-form?

  • I would have to disagree.

    Golf clubs and gay marriage have one very major difference to them, Mr. Trump: You have NO CLUE what you’re talking about on one of these subjects.

    Off topic, does the dead fox he wears on his head look like it’s trying to escape in the featured photo?

    Probably one of the least offensive things I’ve heard him say, but that’s not saying a whole lot.
