The leader of the national organization of LGBT Republicans told Big League Politics he is frustrated by the mainstream media’s distortion of President Donald J. Trump’s attitude and policies regarding the LGBT community.
“We have never had a Republican administration in the United States that has stated unequivocally and explicitly its commitment to the human rights of LGTB individuals globally,” said Gregory T. Angelo, the president of the Log Cabin Republicans.
“In the past, you had indications from the George W. Bush administration and the George H.W. Bush administration, but they never explicitly said it,” he said.
Angelo said the Bush I and Bush II White Houses would often leak its support on background or appoint gay ambassadors or other officials as a symbolic gesture.
The 2012 delegate for Newt Gingrich said he was frustrated by how the mainstream media continues to put out the narrative that the president and his administration are hostile to LGBT individuals and their human rights.
“It is a conflagration of confirmation bias that liberals have about the Trump administration working at all times and in all ways against LGBT individuals—and a media that is obsessed with clickbait headlines and getting clicks rather than getting the story right.”
The most recent example was the Sept. 29 vote at the United Nations Human Rights Council, when UN Ambassador Nikki Haley voted against a council resolution condemning the death penalty as punishment for homosexual acts, he said.
The vote was actually a political maneuver by opponents of the death penalty in general and the council vote was meant to embarrass the United States and supporters of the death penalty, he said. In 2014, under President Barack Obama, the U.S. abstained from a similar resolution.
“There were a number of articles about this resolution that I saw, written by the entertainment reporters, Tweeted out about by people with no experience writing in politics and certainly do not understand the nuances of international diplomacy,” he said.

Many of the stories actually had headlines claiming that the Trump administration voted in favor of the death penalty for LGBT individuals, he said.
When he heard about it, Angelo called his contacts at the American mission to the United States to verify what he had been reading and what people had been calling him and texting him about.
His contacts told him that this resolution has come up repeatedly and the United States has never voted for it, he said. “But, never in this fake news, social media 140-character, clickbait, news environment, which we live in right now.”
Fact: There was NO vote by USUN that supported the death penalty for gay people. We have always fought for justice for the LGBT community.

Angelo said he is 100 percent confident that Trump does not want to execute the gays. “Were there any doubt—and it is so absurd that we have gotten to the point—Nikki Haley Tweeted out, personally, that this resolution had nothing to do with LGBT individuals and that the United States.

COULTER: Detained Illegals Are “Being Separated From Coyotes and Drug Mules”
Author and pundit Ann Coulter was confronted by a TMZ cameraman today, and the result was not pretty for the paparazzo.
“The biggest thing is these kids are being separated from their parents,” said the cameraman posing a lefty journalist
Coulter responded in her usual ruthless manner.
“They’re being separated from coyotes and drug mules, that has already been proven before” she said.
Coulter continued to savage her adversary.
“The parents can stay in Mexico,” she said. “You don’t get to get out of committing crimes in this country because you have a baby. I mean, why don’t we let out Bernie Madoff. His kids suffered. One committed suicide.”
The activist then brought up the First Ladies who have denounced President Donald J. Trump’s zero tolerance policy.
“Thank God First Ladies aren’t elected officials,” Coulter replied with a grin.
When asked if she thought this would be a “stain on our country’s history,” Coulter delivered her knockout blow.
“It’s going to be the END of our country’s history if we let these hordes in,” she said. “It will never, never stop.”
WaPo Employees Beg Bezos for Raise
More than 400 employees at the Washington Post have signed an open letter to owner Jeff Bezos demanding better working conditions after more than a year of failed negotiations with upper management.
“[Dear Jeff Bezos] we workers of The Washington Post have been bargaining for a year and have little to show for it because The Post won’t meet us halfway on much of anything,” says a tweet shared by the Post Guild. “We love The Post. We know you do too. Our work has earned us more than what The Post is offering.”

Bezos is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon. His estimated net worth is nearly $142 billion. He bought the paper in 2013.
The left-wing culture that has engulfed the Washington Post has spilled over into the office, and come back to bite Bezos. His employees are calling on him to “share the wealth” that they claim to have created.
“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the petition says.
The staff accompanied the petition with a video.
“I’m fighting for equal pay, because regardless of gender or skin color, we all deserve to be paid the same,” said a compilation of employees in the video.
The sword of social justice appears to be turning inward on the Washington Post.
Chris Pratt At MTV Awards: “God Is Real, You Have A Soul, Learn To Pray”
It was a welcomed change to most Hollywood speeches
While accepting the Generation Award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, world-renowned actor Chris Pratt used his platform to preach his belief in God to a massive nationwide audience. In his acceptance speech, he laid out 9 rules for life, with a series of jokes, along with a number of solid pieces of life advice. Among his advice are “you have a soul, be careful with it,” and that “God is real,” and that he “loves you.” He also encourages those listening to him to learn to pray, telling them that it’s easy, and that it’s “good for the soul.”
All nine of his rules can be read here:
- “Breathe. If you don’t, you will suffocate.”
- “You have a soul. Be careful with it.”
- “Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”
- “When giving a dog medicine, put the medicine in a little piece of hamburger and they won’t even know they’re eating medicine.”
- “It doesn’t matter what it is. Earn it. A good deed. Reach out to someone in pain. Be of service. It feels good and it’s good for your soul.”
- “God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that, I do.”
- “If you have to poop at a party, but you’re embarrassed because you’re going to stink up the bathroom, just do what I do. Lock the door, sit down, get all of the pee out first. And then, once all the pee is done, poop, flush, boom! You minimize the amount of time that the poop’s touching the air. Because if you poop first, it takes you longer to pee and then you’re peeing on top of it, stirring up the poop particles, create a cloud, goes out, then everyone at the party will know that you pooped. Just trust me, it’s science.”
- “Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it is so good for your soul.”
- “Nobody is perfect. People will tell you that you are perfect just the way that you are, you are not! You are imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you are willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. Like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget that. Don’t take that for granted.”
This speech is a wholesome change of pace from what many in Hollywood have been saying at similar award ceremonies. Recently, Hollywood actor Robert De Niro used his time on stage at the Tony Awards to yell “f*** Trump!” His stunt resulted in thunderous applause from the audience mostly full of Hollywood elites.
Surprisingly, Pratt’s speech also resulted in loud applause, despite a handful of visible dissenters in the crowd when he spoke about his faith. This likely has to do with Pratt’s enormous profile as one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Virtually everything he is a part of becomes a hit, and his upcoming movie “Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom” isn’t expected to be any different.
The Generation Award he was receiving showcases just how high profile of a celebrity he is. The award is given to those who show great achievement in movies. Recent winners include Will Smith, Robert Downey Jr., and Johnny Depp.
