Tony Perkins, the leader of the Family Research Group, the famously anti-LGBT organization has been tapped by Trump to help write his speeches.
In a CNN interview regarding a Biblical gaffe, Trump explained that Perkins helped him write his speech and emphatically calls him a “very, very good guy.”
This supposed “very, very good guy” is one of the most vocal opponents to the LGBT community. Perkins has urged parents to take their kids out of a school because it had a gay principal. He has claimed that there will be “deadly consequences” if LGBT rights succeed. He has even claimed that the Boston Marathon was encouraged by “abortion, family breakdown, sexual liberalism, or religious hostility.”
Are you surprised that Tony Perkins is on Trumps team? Unfortunately, we aren’t.
