Trump Hires Former Alliance Defending Freedom Hate Group Official As Director of the Office of Public Affairs

Donald Trump has appointed Kerri Kupec, a former anti-LGBT hate group official as director of the Office of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice.

Kupec, who formally worked for the anti-gay Alliance Defending Freedom has a degree from the fundamentalist Liberty University and has publicly stated that she believes that religious business owners should be free to discriminate against  the LGBT community.
