Remember when Trump “came out” as bi in 2020? Of course you don’t, because it didn’t happen. Or did it? (It didn’t.)
You’d be forgiven for not knowing: for most of us, 2020 was a quarantine blur defined by toilet paper shortages, long grocery store lines, and freaking out every time you felt the slightest tickle in your throat. It was also an election year, and Trump was busy pulling out all the stops in a last-ditch attempt to stay in office. And we all know how that turned out, of course.
During a campaign stop in Florida in October of 2020, Trump’s desperation seemed to reach its nadir when he promised to kiss everyone in the crowd if he won re-election. Not a very tantalizing prospect for most, especially not the “handsome man” he picked out in the crowd to illustrate his commitment to the bit. If it was, indeed, a bit.
“Isn’t he handsome?” He says of the man in the crowd who caught his eye. Feeling that he probably went too far with the “joke,” he immediately dials it back, saying that he might not get much pleasure out of kissing the men in the crowd, but that he promises to kiss them anyway.
Prior to the vote, only one school district, Matanuska-Susitna Borough, had a ban on trans athletes.
Who knows, maybe that horrifying threat was the thing to turn a few undecided voters in key states: what’s worse than the idea of getting kissed by a burger-breathed demon against your will? Nothing. And you know that man hasn’t brushed his teeth since Guliani’s first mayoral run. Yikes.
