Gov. Newsom vetoes bill to aid low-income immigrantsEric Trump inspired an outpouring of quips about “coming out” and more scathing commentary about not being wanted when he appeared on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning to clumsily claim a kinship with the LGBTQ community. Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s second son, appeared on the morning Fox News show to argue that his father enjoys support from a large, but silent segment of the LGBTQ community.“The LGBT community, they are incredible,” Eric Trump said. “You should see how they come out for my father, every single day.”But it’s what Eric Trump said next that turned heads and became a Twitter talking point.“I’m part of that community and we love the man,” he said. How is that? Actor and activist George Takei quipped: “Well at least now Eric Trump can claim his father doesn’t hate him because he’s dumb, he hates him because he’s part of the LGBT community.”Actually, Takei and many others clearly didn’t take Eric Trump’s comment to be a genuine declaration about his sexual orientation. They believed the Trump Organization vice president was probably quoting what he claims he has heard from LGBTQ people, that they were saying “Thank you for protecting our neighborhood, thank you for protecting our cities.”But that didn’t stop the comments from pouring in.“Gonna be honest, did not have ‘Eric Trump coming out on debate date’ on my bingo card,” tweeted political commentator Brian Tyler Cohen.“Eric trump threw the first brick at stonewall after demolishing it to build condos,” tweeted journalist David Mack.“He probably should have told his wife before announcing it on Fox,” someone else wrote, referring to Eric Trump’s wife, Lara Trump, who is a top advisor for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. The comments also took a more serious turn, with people addressing Trump’s rhetoric and policies perceived by some as an attack against LGBTQ rights.“Proud of Eric Trump for admitting that he’s a homosexual man,” one person tweeted. “I hope that he finds a loving relationship in which he and his partner can flourish without fear of discrimination.
