Gay Republicans are fleeing Log Cabin after Trump endorsement

The mass exodus of Log Cabin Republicans members continues after the group’s controversial endorsement of President Donald Trump despite his nonstop attacks on the LGBT community. Not only are the rank and file hitting the exit, they’ve been joined by a former leader of the group’s DC chapter, a transgender politician, and, now, a current board member.

The gay GOP group downplayed the administration’s policies, including giving healthcare workers the right to deny treatment to LGBT people, his decision to end several promising research experiments into a cure for HIV at the request of the religious right, and their argument before the Supreme Court that LGBTQ people are not protected under civil rights laws.

Jennifer Horn, who has sat on the board of the group for years, announced yesterday that she could no longer serve a group that endorses the subjugation of her own community and other minority groups. She sent the organization a letter yesterday to inform them of her decision to quit.

“He will divide and damage and destroy this country in any manner he thinks he need to advance his own political power,” Horn told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

2. Any Remaining Log Cabin Folks are a Bunch of Selfish Heartless SOBs

They claimed they were GOP because they were "fiscal conservatives". Trump and the current GOP are a bunch of things but fiscal isn't one of them.

4. And this quote

..."It speaks more to a mentality of partisan tribalism than a sincere commitment to fostering inclusion within the Republican Party. "


So they chose their side.

5. I've never understood the whole concept of a gay Republican anyway.

Nor the concept of a female Republican .
