GLAAD calls for Trump boycott

GLAAD wants you to boycott anti-gay Donald Trump. This is listed on their website with a pledge form to join the boycott.

Donald Trump is attempting to take his celebrity businessman act all the way to the White House. Unfortunately, throwing gay and lesbian families under the bus, and trying to exclude them from health care and marriage, has become part of his campaign platform.

Trump thinks gay couples and their families shouldn't have access to the same health care as families headed by straight parents. When asked about whether same-sex couples should have the same medical and civil benefits as other couples, Trump said, "As of this moment, I would say no and no."

Donald Trump on marriage equality:
"I'm not in favor of gay marriage. They should not be able to marry."

"I just don't feel good about it. I don't feel right about it. I'm against it… I'm opposed to gay marriage."

And now he's going to be joining the cast of Fox and Friends. What message is Trump sending to the 1 million gay couples, who are raising approximately 2 million kids in the United States? That they shouldn't be treated equally? He wants their viewership for his shows and their money at his properties, but doesn't allow them the same dignity and respect as all loving couples and families.

Trump has taken to disparaging the families of gay and lesbian couples as a tactic to get attention for his candidacy. Using Trump's own famous catch phrase, we would like to tell him "You're fired!"
