Anti-LGBT Activist Shades Idea Of A Gay President, Twitter Claps Back With 12:1 Ratio

Virulently anti-LGBT activist Bryan Fischer tried to shade Senator Cory Booker – and the gays – all in one tweet, and it didn’t go well.

In tweeting about Booker’s recently announced bid to become the 2020 Democratic candidate for president, Fischer tweaked the title of an article from Politico which pondered if America “is ready for a single president?”

For clarity, we’ll just acknowledge the fact that America has already elected two presidents who took office as bachelors, Grover Cleveland and Jame Buchanan. 

Fischer wrote, “The better question: is America ready for a homosexual president? If Cory Booker turns out to be gay, he is disqualified. Cannot have a man who engages in sexually deviant behavior in the White House.”

First of all, America already has Donald “Grab’em by the p*ssy” Trump in the Oval Office, so Fischer is a little late for throwing the term ‘sexually deviant behavior’ around.

Second, Cory Booker has publicly stated he is not gay, and whether he is or isn't is none of our business.

In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, he shared that he has ‘a boo.’ Several media outlets, like People Magazine, have reported that he’s seeing actress Rosario Dawson.

Third, the Democrats have an openly gay candidate running for president, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. 

And finally, there is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that disqualifies someone LGBT from being president.

To be eligible to become president one must be at least 35 years of age, a resident within the United States for 14 years, and a natural born Citizen.

Nothing in the Constitution states gays are ‘disqualified’ from the presidency.

Fischer works for the American Family Association, which has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. He’s used the organization’s website and radio network to attack the LGBT community for years.

A short list of his outrageous and extremist views about LGBTs include blaming gay men for the Holocaust, calling for criminalizing homosexuality, and that LGBT people are the biggest perpetrators of hate crimes.

In any case, the Twitterverse did not hesitate to clap back at the 67-year-old hater.

Many made a point to mention James Buchanan, while others reacted to his being ‘ratioed’ with the number of comments to his tweet (over 9,000) far outweighing his ‘Likes’ (only 771 at this writing).

Here’s just a sample of the shade thrown Fischer’s way:

    What Nonsense!  James Buchanan was gay, and there have been rumors about Martin van Buren, Abraham Lincoln, even JFK, LBJ and Obama!  Get over it!
