Ivanka Trump admits her father's family leave plan does not include gay dads

http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/ivanka-trump-admits-her-fathers-family-leave-plan-does-not-include-gay-dads/#gs.34Bgxf8

While touting her dad’s family leave plan as LGBTI-friendly, Ivanka Trump was forced to admit that new gay dads are not included in it.
The daughter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is said to have heavily influenced a plan that would give new mothers – including lesbians – six weeks of paid leave.

‘I think this takes huge advancement and obviously, for same-sex couples as well, there’s tremendous benefit here to enabling the mother to recover after childbirth,’ she told Cosmopolitan.com this week. ‘It’s critical for the health of the mother. It’s critical for bonding with the child, and that was a top focus of this plan.’

2. But he loves the LGBTQ, loves them much more than Hillary!!

So add this incredible snub on behalf of the fundamentalists he is pleasing, to saying no to Anderson Cooper for debates, and you can really see how much of a lying sack of excrement he is about how he'll be the best, the best president for gay people!

HA! What a jackass.

3. Apparently fathers don't need to bond with their babies; and neither do mothers and fathers

of adopted babies.

5. LGBT friendly?

There is nothing LGBT friendly about the rethuglican platform. Nothing. Nothing Nothing. In fact it is downright hateful and regressive. How any gay American can vote for the rethuglican party is beyond disgusting to me.
