Donald Trump babbled incoherently when asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper about his claim to be in favor of “traditional marriage” on the subject of whether gay people should be allowed to marry, especially in light of the fact that he’s on his third marriage.
Although the candidate has said his views are “evolving,” his campaign position is that only “traditional marriage” between “a man and a woman” should be legal.
CNN’s Tapper asked Trump if he could justify his view on marriage in an interview that aired on Sunday.
“What do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says, ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?’” Tapper wondered.
“Well, they have a very good point,” Trump admitted. “But I’ve been a very hardworking person. And actually, I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now. My [first] two wives were very good.”
“But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man?” Tapper pressed.
“I really don’t say anything,” Trump shrugged. “I’m just, Jake, I’m for traditional marriage.”
WTF does “I’ve been a very hardworking person” have to do with that question? He’s just spouting gibberish. Of course, when Trump says he’s for “traditional marriage” what he really means is that he’s for traditional “rich man” marriage. That’s where a wealthy man marries a succession of supermodels, trading them in for a new version every 10-15 years after giving them a pile of money to go away. Very traditional among rich men for generations.
