Melania Trump announced as guest for 'Log Cabin Republican' annual dinner

('Log Cabin Republicans' is an organization within the Republican Party that says it advocates for equal rights for LGBT Americans)

Former first lady Melania Trump is set to be a special guest at the annual “Spirit of Lincoln” dinner hosted by Log Cabin Republicans, the organization announced on Tuesday.

The event — which will take place Nov. 6 at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla., marking a change of tradition in holding the dinner in D.C. — will likely mark an attempt for Melania Trump to develop her image as an LGBTQ ally and tamp down the reputation the Trump administration was hostile to LGBTQ people.

Charles Moran, managing director for Log Cabin Republicans, hailed Melania Trump in a statement for her work as first lady and breaking barriers for the Republican Party.
“Melania Trump’s work as First Lady, from helping children reach their full potential to championing a more inclusive Republican Party, has been historic,” Moran said. “Her vocal support of Log Cabin Republicans has been a signal to Republicans everywhere that it is possible to simultaneously be conservative and support equality under the law for all Americans.”

Among the anti-LGBTQ policies under Trump were a transgender military ban, religious freedom carve-out seen to enable anti-LGBTQ discrimination and the U.S. Justice Department arguing against LGBTQ inclusion under civil rights law when the issue was before the U.S. Supreme Court.

1. I get gay and conservative. I get the theoretical Republican gay voter. But not in today's GOP.

9. Makes even less sense than Black republicans.

I mean they have to know that that party is anti-gay rights.

7. And the theme for this dinner?

That the long-standing homophobia espoused by the GOP is nothing more than "locker room talk"!
LCR managing director Charles Moran (yes, MORAN) assures attendees that this will be a "barrier-breaking" event. And very simultaneous as well.

10. Melania "championed for a more inclusive GOP"?

Really? She was that instrumental?

13. Cheer on the "I really don't care do you" first witch

Aside from the most cringeworthy fashion faux pas atrocity ever, brought the title "first lady" undeniably out of the "lady" category.
Words can't adequately express the hypocrisy.
