Trump on Gay Marriage

Run, Trump! Run!:

“It’s like in golf,” he said. “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,” said Mr. Trump, a Republican. “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.”

    My dream team is Palin for pres with Trump as her running mate.

      Oh lawd yes, puhleeze! Put ’em up there, Republicans!

    • As amusing as this would be there is no way Trump would play second fiddle to Palin. Not to mention ALL of this is for publicity only. He has zero intention of running. And since he doesn’t have to put his money where his mouth is, Trump can continue to be wishy-washy about it and the press is eating it up.

    All that hairspray soaked into his scalp and made him insane. Didn’t it?

      I think he’s crazy as a fox that he displays proudly upon his head. He’s in it for the money, and I think he is just saying what people want to hear who will want to buy whatever he’s selling them. He may actually believes what he says, maybe, but it’s strange what he is coming up with only now. Does this even sound like Trump to you? To suddenly become aware and vocal and turn out to be so darn stupid… naive, even? Does he seem like a guy who longs to fix broken things in the world, or does he seem more like a guy who will do whatever he can to try to make a lot of money?

  • I guess I don’t understand golf analogies.
    Is he saying that ladies don’t like guys with long putters? Or that dudes who can’t sink holes are switching to ugly, but long, putters?
    Seriously, what is Trump trying to say here? I DON’T GET IT.

    Please speak English Mr. Trump.

    You know, out of the countless excuses to justify people’s bigotry towards gays, this inane golf putter analogy may be the worst I ever heard. I think his recent psychotic rants are some attempt to court some fringe redneck demographic, but none of the hicks I know would consider the apprentice must-see-tv.

    He checks all the boxes: ‘many of of his best friends’, of course they ‘just happen’ to be gay but lest we forget they’re ‘fabulous’ (cos that’s how queers are, y’know)… Mind you, this surprises me: I always thought Trump was about as straight as a barroom pool cue. He’s certainly got that seedy-old-queen look. And fabulous hair, of course.

    Can’t you just see the media people there looking at each other with ‘WTF? Did he really say that?’ expressions on their faces?

  • Erich Schrempp

    Good thing he said that he doesn’t want to sound trivial or anything…

  • Mike K

    “It’s like in golf,” he said. “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”

    What I get from that is that he accepts that some people use “ugly” putters, he just doesn’t like to look at them, and thinks it’s wrong. just replace “use ugly putters” with “are gay.”

    Maybe he’s just jealous because they have extra-log wood.

  • Fink

    Are they fabulous because they’re gay, or are they gay because they’re fabulous?

  • Am I the only one who is genuinely scared that Trump has a good chance? People seem to underestimate the stupidity of the average citizen…..

  • MacCrocodile

    And that’s why those stupid ugly putters will never have the same legal recognition as a man’s putter: because Donald Trump prefers not to use them.
