Trump, who has been anything but shy about his feelings towards the LGBT community, continues to make claims about preserving the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, making the new order of religious liberty seem more like a hate crime than an act of free speech. In an almost laughable moment during the signing, Trump announced that he and his administration would be "leading by example” to enforce this new order of religious liberty.
So what does a world where Trump “leads by example” really look like? Well, let’s take a look!
Honor thy wife?
In 2005, Trump renewed his efforts to honor the institution of marriage by moving on to wife number three: former model--and now current First Lady--Melania Knauss-Trump. The couple met in 1998 at a Fashion Week party after Trump sent his date to the bathroom so he could flirt with Melania, who was 23 years his junior. I’m not sure about the “first came love” part, but a few years later came marriage, and in 2006 Melania gave birth to Trump’s fifth child, Barron. Oh, and by the way? They currently live in separate homes.
Thou shalt not commit… oh, never mind
Not only is Trump a notorious playboy and cheater, he has also been charged with 12 allegations of sexual assault and misconduct (and that doesn’t even include the allegations of rape made by first wife Ivana over the course of their divorce proceedings). Numerous women have bravely come forward and made claims about our handsy commander-in-chief, stating that he forced himself upon them, grabbed their breasts, slipped his hands up their skirts, and kissed them on the mouth even as they tried to push him away. During the election, Trump threatened to sue any woman who spoke out against him.
And lest you jump to the conclusion that these women are falsely accusing the President for a lark, don’t forget that he was caught admitting to sexually abusive behavior on camera. During the campaign, a behind-the-scenes video from a 2005 taping of Access Hollywood was leaked where Trump bragged about not being able to control himself around beautiful women, stating that he could do anything because he was a celebrity, including grabbing women “by the pussy” and forcing his tongue in their mouths. Yup, that’s our President.
