Trump Will Appoint Pro-family judges, No Flip Flop As Some Claim

Some blog commenters are making up stuff about Donald Trump.

One group, " Addicting Info" website claims he, Trump, has flipped against Gay Rights.

Another conservative responds:

Good grief. The guy says "we've got to bring people together," and it suddenly means "I'm 100% completely totally in favour of gay marriage!"

"I have watched the interview and it is simply a non-confrontational five minutes with an openly lesbian reporter who is counseled by Donald Trump that "we will and we have to come together as a nation". That is not a flip flop on pro-family issues, says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.


The "Addicting Info" blog claims:

(this is wrong, note by Public Advocate)

"a stunning reversal, Donald Trump said that he will strengthen the rights of the LGBT community and bring people together.

His new stance comes just days after he said that as president, he would "strongly consider" overturning Obergefell vs Hodges, the Supreme Court decision that found that same-sex couples have a legal and constitutional right to marry.

"I'm a lesbian, we've had some great progress for the gay and lesbian community," NECN reporter Sue O'Connell told Trump. When President Trump is in office, can we look for more forward motion on equality for gays and lesbians?" Here is Trump's response:

"Well, you can. We're going to bring people together, and that's your thing, and other people have their thing. We have to bring all people together and if we don't we're not going to have a country anymore."

Now that's one big flip-flop because in addition to Trump saying he would appoint judges to overturn Obergefell vs Hodges, he has stated in the past time and time again that he only supports marriage between a man and a woman.

(THIS IS CORRECT, NOTE by Public Advocate)

He has said:

"I'm not in favor of gay marriage. I don't feel right about marriage equality."

Trump has even gone as far as to compare same-sex relationships to choosing the wrong kind of golf putter! He said:

"It's like in golf. 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. 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."
