Donald Trump who spoke on Friday, the two-month anniversary of the Orlando PULSE nightclub massacre, at a gathering of anti-gay Christian conservatives and evangelical pastors” has had the audacity to open a campaign field office directly across the street from the shuttered nightspot where Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old Afghan-American security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others LGBT patrons in a terrorist – hate crime attack.
The location across the street from Pulse – a gay club where 49 people, the majority of them Hispanic, were killed – could be seen as problematic for a campaign struggling so far with Hispanics and the LGBT community.
Trump has been criticized this week by LGBT groups, including Equality Florida, for attending an evangelical pastors event on International Drive that they described as “an anti-LGBT rally.”
Trump – who said the day after the Pulse attack, “Our nation stands together in solidarity with the members of Orlando’s LGBT community” and stressed the danger of ISIS – told the Sentinel Thursday he did not know there were protests.
The gall and insensitivity of this mega-manical douchebag knows no bounds.
