"worst bigot ever"

On Instapundit and other right-leaning sites, there's a joking meme—"Worst Bigot Ever!"—that goes around whenever President Trump does something that flies in the face of the leftie narrative—a narrative that repeatedly claims, without actual evidence, that Trump is the worst of the worst bigots out there. You can see photos of Trump from years ago, pressing the flesh with the likes of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, but nope—Trump hates black people. You can see how Trump used to hang with racial and sexual minorities back when he was an openly liberal Democrat, but nope—Trump is a racist, a homophobe, a xenophobe, first cousin of Hitler, etc. Whenever Trump achieves something that leftists ought to applaud, they ignore the achievement because it doesn't fit the pre-set narrative.

And, for the latest edition of "worst homophobe ever," we have this:

Historic Fact: Donald Trump Will Be The First President To Support Gay Marriage From The Beginning*

by Bruce Carroll

At the start, I should note that I was an original “Never Trump” conservative. I opposed the candidacy of Donald Trump from the day he came down the Trump Tower escalator.

In November, I didn’t vote for President Trump, nor Hillary Clinton. In fact, I was a Presidential Elector from South Carolina for Evan McMullin – should he have won.

With those personal caveats behind me, I must admit that this Administration will be historic for gay and lesbian Americans. Donald Trump is the first President of the United States who was elected as an open supporter of the gay community at large and gay marriage specifically.

Let us not forget that until it was politically expedient, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton both opposed gay marriage for the overwhelming majority of the time taxpayers paid for their lifestyles.

It took Dick Cheney in 2004 and Joe Biden in 2008 for President Obama to voice support of gay marriage. Even then, it took a conservative Supreme Court to make national gay marriage the law of the land.

I know, inconvenient truths are hard to digest for the left-wing gay activists. Donald Trump has been far ahead of the crowd on several issues, including gay rights.

Take your narrative and suck it. And if you're a gay leftie unaware you're being used, well, maybe it's time to wake up and smell the KY.

*NB: the article is two months old, but it's only gained national traction as of today, making it "news" for the rest of us proles.
