Donald Trump Doesn’t Want Gays Receiving Benefits Or Marrying

"I think you're great. But I don't want to see you happily married."

Dude, you’re fired. We told you before about Donald Trump “loving gays” but hating gay marriage, and you freaked out along with us. Well, now that this business titan and lover of gays is considering a presidential run in the 2012 election, he’s been giving interviews left and right on topical issues.

A reporter for the Des Moines Register & Tribune Co. followed up on Trump’s recent comments on gay marriage.

Asked whether he supports allowing same-sex couples to marry, Trump said no. Iowa conservatives have overwhelmingly opposed the 2009 Iowa Supreme Court decision overturning the state’s ban on gay marriage.

“They should not be able to marry,” he said. But asked whether gay couples should be able access the same benefits as married couples, he said his “attitude on it has not been fully formed.”

Given a second to think, Trump said on marriage and civil benefits, “As of this moment, I would say no and no.”

Just to rub salt in our big, gay wounds, Trump also defended his three divorces in the same interview where he expresses that gays and lesbians should not be given the right to marry.

He acknowledged that he had been divorced and that he is not the only one weighing a 2012 campaign who is.

Like former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Trump is on his third marriage.

“But one of the reasons I was divorced is because I worked very hard,” he said. “And, you know, that’s a good reason. But I worked very, very hard building up a great company. And it’s a great company.”

Ah. Gotcha. If you work hard, then divorcing three times is acceptable. But if you’re gay as well as a hard worker, you’re screwed.

Thanks for clearing it all up, Donald!

    Once again, capitalism is used as an excuse to treat people like dirt. The ability to build a company and be rich is NO valid reason to find us to be less than equal.

  • So, he’s running for president, what should happen is a GAY presidential candidate should also run. It’s jus such a pity that in this day and age, the gay opponent would be cast out as quick as he or she was in, because no matter how valid, useful or relevant their policy issues are, the gay factor would always run against them. This world sucks sometimes, but people like Donald Trump should be “trumped” and not allowed to use their money to become President.
