Trump “Wouldn’t Speak To” A Gay Child About His Opposition To Gay Marriage

In an interview with Bloomberg this week, Donald Trump was asked how he would explain his opposition to gay marriage to a hypothetical gay Trump child. Trump said he would respond thusly:

“Well it’s the way it is. I wouldn’t speak to them at all about it, other than they are who they are and I want them to be happy and I will love them and I will cherish them. […] I’ve gone to gay weddings… I’ve been at gay weddings. I have been against it from the standpoint of Bible, from the standpoint of my teachings as growing up and going to Sunday school and going to church and I’ve been opposed to it. We’ll just see how it all comes out – but if I was ever in that position I’d just have to explain it.”

…What? Once again, I’m left scratching my head, wondering what Trump even said. I hear words, but he might as well be saying, “Fork toad spaghetti running, reactor ten frivolous.” Would he not speak to the child about it and make every family gathering super awkward? Does his attendance at gay weddings mean anything about how he would talk to a child about his opposition to gay marriage? Is he basically just garbling John Kasich’s answer to the same question? Is he going to explain it, or not speak to them at all about it?

People are starting to really get worried about how serious the Trump run seems to be, and guys: He never says anything of substance. That’s the scariest part to me.
