In the above video, The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Bellini speaks to the two men, who say they are “excited” to appear at a Thursday rally in Cincinnati, Ohio in support of the Republican presidential nominee.
After confirming that they are a couple, the men told Bellini that they feel totally comfortable being affectionate with one another at the rally. As to why they support Trump over Hillary Clinton, one of the men said he was simply “tired of the bullsh*t government.”
“I work in the steel industry [so] I see it hardcore at the trades and stuff,” he said. “Time for a change. Trump’s the man for it.”
His partner echoed those sentiments. “I really feel like he would bring more jobs to the country,” he said. “Everything would be a hell of a lot better.”
Although the couple’s comments might raise a few eyebrows, a small, but vocal, number of openly gay people have come forward in support of Trump. Last year, YouTube personality Kyle Kittleson praised Trump as the “slightly crazy uncle who’s a little behind the times, but still knows what’s best” while professing his own support, claiming the presidential hopeful “supported equal rights for everybody” before Clinton.
Sorry, guys ― we’re just gonna have to agree to disagree with you on this one.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
