June 1 marks the beginning of Pride Month, a celebration that POTUS has yet to acknowledge.
In what could be a crucial point in Trump’s Presidency — the chance to become the first Republican president to declare June as Pride Month — the Big Cheeto has kept more awkwardly silent than Mike Pence at a Hamilton performance.
President Bill Clinton was the first POTUS to acknowledge Pride Month. And while the tradition didn’t catch on with the memorably anti-LGBT George W. Bush, Barack Obama took the proclamation a step further during his terms by holding an annual White House reception to celebrate LGBT activists.
Even more infuriating, former Obama LGBTQ communications liaison Shin Inouye pointed out that Trump had issued several other proclamations for June this week, like “National Homeownership Month” and “African-American Music Appreciation Month”├óΓé¼┼á– but nothing for Pride.
Not every member of the First Family has kept deafeningly silent on the subject, however. Every-woman and woke activist Ivanka Trump gave a shout out to her “LGBTQ friends” on Twitter, which was returned with Twiticism referencing her history of being tone-deaf and complicit in supporting her father’s agenda.
Also, what LGBTQ friends, Ivanka? LOL…
Ch-ch-check out Twitter’s responses to the Trump family’s reactions — and non-reactions — to Pride Month (below)!
.@realDonaldTrump couldn’t be bothered to issue a proclamation to recognize #LGBTPrideMonth. Given his record, maybe it’s for the best. pic.twitter.com/EwwYU9TLC0

You openly supported and campaigned for the most anti-LGBTQ+ presidential ticket in recent times. Your words mean nothing to us.

Oh honey, if you wanted to collect Real Housewives and Drag Race gifs you could have just googled them.
