Twitter claps back when Donald Trump says he’s a friend to “the gays”

During a campaign speech last night, Donald Trump couldn’t stop himself from being Donald Trump, so he made a characteristically awful, ignorant statement regarding homosexuals and Muslims. He was presumably referring to the fact that Muslim extremists are notoriously intolerant of gay men. In an attempt to incite tension between Muslims and gays, he vomited these words:

“Ask the gays what they think and what they do, in, not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me — who’s your friend, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?”

Not surprisingly he’s once again painting a broad stroke, and accusing all Muslims of being extremists who believe in Sharia law and things like executing homosexuals. Also, “Ask the gays?” He’s like the racist, homophobic, ignorant uncle everyone hopes won’t speak during Christmas dinner.

Twitter was not having it. It stepped up to answer Donald’s question.

No Donald. Just, no.
