Twitter Is Absolutely Roasting Trump For Saying 'Ask The Gays' In A Speech

By

Donald Trump has time and time again proven that he is about as devoted to LGBTQ+ rights as Mel Gibson is to sitting shiva.

And, in the wake of the Orlando shootings and Donald Trump's insistence that the heart of the problem was Islam rather than good old-fashioned homophobia, Trump has been facing a lot of criticism from the LGBTQ+ community (as well as the rest of us who believe he looks and acts like the human embodiment of an unstoppable, pelican-murdering oil spill).

On Wednesday, Trump addressed these criticisms in his usual manner — by just telling everyone they are not happening.

“Ask the gays what they think and what they do in not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me who's your friend: Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?”

Naturally, the hashtag #AskTheGays immediately started trending.

Absolutely predictably, it was just filled with members of the LGBTQ+ community telling the Cheeto-dusted emperor how much (spoiler alert!) they hate him.
