Just Trump being Trump. How long will people keep allowing Trump to hold the football and act surprised when he pulls it away and they fall on their asses.

No special rights for gays. Equal rights for everyone.
So...do blacks get "special rights" because racist white hotel owners still have to run rooms to them?

Do Mormons get "special rights" because cake makers who are "Christians" who think Mormons are heretics still have to bake wedding cakes for their Temple weddings (even if they think that's an abomination)?

Do women get "special rights" because they have to be paid equally for equal work?

You can't have "equal rights" for everyone unless you prevent people from discriminating against everyone.

PS...if you look carefully, you'll see that the administration doesn't object to protecting LGB people. It's the T's he's got a particular problem with.

You left out this part for some reason.

But the Equality Act goes further than what Trump said he supported in 2000. In addition to transgender inclusion, the bill seeks to update federal law to include sex in the list of protected classes in public accommodation and expands the definition of public accommodations to include retail stores, banks, transportation services and health care services. Further, the Equality Act would establish that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act — a 1994 law aimed at protecting religious liberty — can’t be used to enable anti-LGBT discrimination.

Okay, he hates the L, G, and B parts too.
Trump doesn't hate gays.

He just doesn't want the LGBTQ agenda getting too big for their britches and suing everyone and the trans lunacy running wild like it did under Obama

So you make an assertion, but then back it up with a bunch of emotional language. You're saying that Trump wants gays to be treated fairly, but he doesn't want anything to be enforced by the law. That was the Southern states' position about blacks before about 1965. It was called Jim Crow.

"Too big for their britches" = "Uppity"

No one should have a right to a hotel room or a cake.

You get paid whatever you agreed to be paid. Each person has the right to accept the offered wage or seek more lucrative employment.
You can't have "equal rights" for everyone unless you prevent people from discriminating against everyone.
Sure you can. Everyone has the equal right to discriminate.

You support Jim Crow, then. Good to know.

You get paid whatever you agreed to be paid. Each person has the right to accept the offered wage or seek more lucrative employment.
And you oppose basic labor laws. Good to know.

It appears you don't like the Constitution, either.

No, actually they don't. Only people with services to offer, homes or rooms to rent, or other things they can deny people in the marketplace CAN discriminate. If wealth is a license to treat people badly, there are no rights.

.
Quote me stating such or be accurately labeled a liar. Regardless, jim crow is long dead, and jim crow laws were government enforced segregation. I oppose them. If people want to self-segregate, they are free to do so. And get off your pious high horse, it's not a good look for someone who supports killing babies for convenience.
And you oppose basic labor laws. Good to know.
Incorrect. Apparently you know very little that is true, but prefer to make accusations based on biased and faulty judgment.
It appears you don't like the Constitution, either.
Three strikes, you're out. Whether I "like" or "dislike" the Constitution is irrelevant. I find it to be an acceptable document that serves to limit the power of federal government.

Incorrect again. I discriminate every day, as do you and everyone else living. One cannot legally harm another. "Treating people badly" is just your weasel way of obscuring the truth. Your hysteric emotional responses would be expected from a child. Grow up.
