Donald Trump expressed his belief that gay couples should not be allowed to legally marry.
The mogul has previously claimed that he is considering a bid for the US presidency in 2012 as a member of the Republican party.
After indicating to the Des Moines Register that he will compete in next year's Iowa caucus should he decide to seek office, Trump was questioned on his stance concerning same sex marriages.
"They should not be able to marry," the Celebrity Apprentice star asserted.
Trump also admitted that he hasn't developed a "fully formed" opinion on extending medical and civil benefits to gay couples, but he added: "As of this moment, I would say no and no."
The TV personality has suggested that he will announce his final decision on whether to launch a presidential bid in the coming months.
One potential rival for the Republican nomination might be former US Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, who announced this week that he is forming presidential exploratory committee.
The Celebrity Apprentice premieres March 6 on NBC.
Yeah, well, I don''t support blowhard morons marrying three times and passing judgement on others as if they''re the arbiter of morality.
I have posted on DL in the past that Trump was homophobic and gotten lots of vitriol for it.%0D\
So, I''m sure DL will ignore this thread or rant about how it is unfair to St. Donald. Not accepting the truth is practically madatory for DLers.
He and Newt Gingrich better both be prepared to face a lot of heat for this. We are not going to let it go.
This isn''t news. Remember his press conference with Carrie Prejean? He said, "we had a tlak, she and I, about the issue..." And she, being all gutter mean girl, said, "Yes, tell them what uyou told me. Tell them!" As if, somehow, because he too is against gay marriage, she had back up.%0D\
They deserve one another. He''s an asshole.
Here''s Newt''s web site. Ask him a question. I know I have a few for Mr. Speaker.
He''s just promoting his TV shows. There''s no chance that Trump will run for dog catcher, let alone president.%0D\
I am not surprised by his comments on gay marriage. I will never understamd why so many people seem to like Trump, including some gays.
Trump invoke Obama, saying that "even the President is against gay marriage." Like Obama is some infallible creature. Tump is an asshole. He probably secretly hates Rosie simply because she''s a dyke. This shit is probably not going to sit well with Howard Stern, who frequently has Trump on his show, along with O''Donnell.
You''re the turdballs falling for his crap. It''s posts galore everytime ''Apprentice'' is on.
I guess I shouldn''t be at this point, but I am still surprised at the DEPTH of anti-gay animus that animates the Republican Party. That Trump, of all people, feels the need to deny gay people even being able to visit their loved ones in the hospital proves how low a Republican candidate has to sink to get the support of the base.\
I have no clue how gay people manage to stay in that party.
Trump: "Even Obama is against gay marriage." %0D\
Big fucking deal. I thought Trump was a leader and not reliant on Obama for his viewpoint. Afterall, Trump has criticized Obama plenty on other issue. But on this issue he falls in line with Obama. Trump is full of shit.%0D\
Besides, what will Trump now say that the Department of Justice is not going to defend DOMA?
Somebody needs to put together some clips of Trump''s cruel comments towards Rosie O''Donnell. And some of the dumb stuff he has said on The Apprentice. Not too Presidential now is he?
I''ve always thought he was an oafish goon with ugly views.
Yes, marrying sluts after multiple divorces is his right, not mine.
In my opinion we have too much power to be putting up with this crap. We need to infiltrate the marriage license profession and swing sympathizers who will marry us irregardless of the laws. We''ve tried doing it the upfront way, it''s time for subversion, something that will tangle the courts and end up costing the states oodles of money in damages. I can''t believe the American people are so pliant. If I were pregnant I''d demand an abortion at gunpoint and say to hell with you South Dakota.
Boycott his show and everything else related to the Trump Organization.
Always hated that clown. So nouveau riche and without any class or intelligence. He''s not a nice human being.
The guy has always been a Republican and a bit of a freak, so this isn''t a surprise to a lot of us, but I gather some people just didn''t want to believe it.\
I remember people like R2 saying that Trump was a homophobe and was surprised that people didn''t believe it. Wonder what those people think now? \
It''s telling that he wants to use his money to run for president himself, when his money would be put to better use backing a more solid candidate. Trump could MAYBE get elected mayor somewhere, but president would never happen, and he''s too dumb to realize it.
Trump is promoting his stupid damn Apprentice show, and all the political talking heads bought his bulshit about running for president--which will never happen.%0D\
But Trump accomplished his goal, and his reality show piece of crap will propbably do quite well in the ratings. And then this idiotic talk of him running for president will die down for a couple of months until the Apprentice finale when Trump shows his ugly face on the political shows again blatehring on about the presidency--but really just looking to boost the Apprentice finale ratings.
I wonder if this opinion will stop some celebrities from doing his show now?
I''m glad I never watched his stupid show. He''s a disgusting piece of work and I always thought his comments about Rosie were not only sexist, but laced with homophobia.%0D\
Let''s also not forget that Perez Hilton kissed his ass and apologized to him for starting that whole thing with Prejean in order to maintain his hosting duties on that stupid pageant.%0D\
Wonder what he''s going to say about this?
Who gives a shit? Trump can support or not support what the fuck he want''s. Just like me. I personally get sick hearing about this. There are more important issues in this country than this one. I say this as a gay man. I can''t be alone in this opinion.
Dude is a gasbag media whore with a tragic comb-over, who inherited most of his money, and whose businesses have filed BK like 20 times.\
Why should anyone pay one fucking nanosecond of attention to him?
[quote] So nouveau riche %0D\
He''s not nouveau riche. He''s the third generation of wealth in his family.
r21 = GOProuder. Die in a grease fire, shit stain!
Trump will be running for President. No doubt about it. He has nothing to lose. It will get him free PR in the end, and hey, what if he were to win?
Sorry R24 but Trump can have any opinion he wants. I don''t give a shit. You wouldn''t be bitching if he was saying the oposite. I still would. There are more important things going on in this country.
I''M SO FUCKING PISSED!!!!!\
I HATE THE SHOW BUT LUUUUUUUUUUUUV MEAT LOAF!!!!!\
I CAN''T WATCH IT NOW!!!!! I''M GOING TO MISS MEAT!!!!\
EAT SHIT AND FUCK OFF DONALD! YOU''RE A CUNT!!!!!
Meth or vodka, R27?
We get it, r21/26. Equal rights are not "important" to you.
R26, no one is saying that Trump has no right to an opinion. We''re just exercising our right to have an opinion about that opinion -- or do you think gay people don''t have that right either?\
And you''re just fine with gay people being kept from their partners'' hospital bed? For real?
No that''s not it all R29.
[quote]You wouldn''t be bitching if he was saying the oposite.%0D\
No we wouldn''t. But if Trump said he favored gay marriage, it would be a nonevent and wouldn''t make the news because he carries no clot or political influence.%0D\
However, the fact that he said he was against gay marriage makes it newsworthy because it''s like "Who the fuck does he think he is? Why doesn''t he just shut up?" He''s been married three time--not exactly the example of the sanctity of marriage.%0D\
Trump is not a political figure, and his negative opinion means nothing--but it makes the news because the media likes to stir shit and give him air time for the fuck of it.
[italic]Sorry [R24] but Trump can have any opinion he wants. [/italic]\
Who said that he doesn''t, dumbass?\
[italic]I don''t give a shit. You wouldn''t be bitching if he was saying the oposite.[/italic]\
First of all, oh, dear. Second, of course I wouldn''t. You are seriously mentally retarded.\
[italic]I still would. There are more important things going on in this country.[/italic]\
No, there aren''t more important things than civil rights. Fuck off and die a tragic death, Uncle Tom!
[italic]No that''s not it all [R29].[/italic]\
A beep bop boo.
What r21 said.
Trump shall now be known as the "Billionaire Bigot".
"I can''t be alone in this opinion."\
One can only hope you are and that when you drop dead, so goes such idiocy.
Donald Trump should stay out of politics.
I had a similar experience when posting about John McCain, r2.
Donald Trump should stay out of everything. If I never heard his name again, it would be too soon. An insufferable douchebag.
Shaddup u fuck in freak
''Trump shall now be known as the "Billionaire Bigot".''\
That liar is nowhere near a billionaire.\
Where''s the sanctity in 3 marriages, 2 of which he''s reported to have committed adultery in?
Since he''s a failure in marriage - never mind the fact that he only marries whores - his opinion on marriage is hardly valid.
Sorry Donald and Newt but I won''t vote for divorced candidates. I believe you both are examples of the decay of family life in America.
I hope Trump hears the same thing from many voters, R45
As Stupid hair as stupid shit.
I once wrote a limerick about Donald Trump for an English class. Unfortunately I''ve forgotten how it ended, but it started: \
There once was a mogul who''d ogle\
A beautiful model named Maples,\
Who he considered one of life''s staples\
I''m sure DL can help me finish this and/or improve upon it. The end had something about Mar a Lago in it.
[quote]Trump also admitted that he hasn''t developed a "fully formed" opinion on extending medical and civil benefits to gay couples,\
How is that possible? He''s always going on about how many people work for him and yet this has never come up?
Trump doesn''t support anything but Ho''s, Hookers, and Sluts.
The Daily Mail (UK) posted a picture of his bald spot yesterday. %0D\
The best thing they have done in some time.
R42, he''s worth $2 billion.
[quote]In my opinion we have too much power to be putting up with this crap.\
Finally, somebody realises this. Gay people really enjoy playing the victim because they''re satisfied with occupying the moral high ground.\
We need to give that up and become more like the Muslims and the Jews.\
I really admired the way Muslims shamed bigoted Americans last summer over the so-called "ground zero" mosque. They cut through the bullshit and turned it around in their favour.\
The Jews are masters at this. Galliano suspected of anti-semitism on a Friday, fired with career in tatters by the following Tuesday.\
And instead, gay people put up with this nonsense and sing torch songs. It ain''t workin'', people.
The gay community needs to follow the Jewish way of proactive self defense and inter-community favoritism. This is the only option, for a small minority group, to survive in this world.
We should go after those shitty hotels with his name of them. I don''t think he actually owns them, but it would be nice if the owners were forced to drop his name.\
I''m thinking the Trump in Vegas. They''re always discounting anyway; wouldn''t take much to push them over the edge. We definitely hurt the Manchester Hyatt. They cried "uncle" repeatedly.
Notice how all the gay figure skaters stayed clear of Donald Trump at this years Skating in Harlem event. \
Donald Trump is a bigot for life now.
r53/r54 = antisemites.\
Yes, "Jews play favoritism." "It''s all a conspiracy." "Jews have an agenda." "They have too much power." Fuck you!
Disembowlement would be too good for this creep. And you just know he has homosex in his background.
"Celebrity Apprentice" ratings drop this week as many people will not support Donald Trump. Please stop watching him.
Somebody should write Country Music song titled: \
"I don''t support Gay marriage"\
It would make things so much easier for these Donald Trump types.
R56, there is a reason for that. A friend of mine, who knows Donald Trump, and he said that he is very homophobic, and is known for his abuse (verbal) of either, gay men, or men who work for him who do not live up to his standards, calling them, faggots, cocksuckers, etc.
How can he be homophobic? In his business, I''m sure he deals with gay men ALL of the time.%0D\
The man just gets worse and worse everyday.
Am I wrong to wish Trump would get run over by a speeding taxi in NYC? If I woke up and heard that Trump, Beck Hannity, Dimbaugh, Bachmann, and so many others I don''t have room to name here died in horrible accidents I would just sit back and smile a smile of utter contentment. Hell, I would go so far as to think there is a god after all.
His wife comes from a country that used to be communist. And it once had a lot of Muslims in it when the state was still together. And let''s not forget, Trump''s first wife Ivana came from a country that used to be communist too.\
Is Donald Trump a commie-lover? \
How can his current communist Muslim woman become First Lady? How can America tolerate this?
Hunny, If I was The Donald, I''d begin preparing my own food and stay away from restaurants, I''d clean my own house, and do my own laundry, to make sure about no bugs, roaches and other infestations, too. I would be real careful who was doing that stuff for me. Real careful. LOLOLOLOL!
Trump''s wife is Muslim??!\
Another thing, who are the idiots "bump"ing this shit to begin with?
R68, you might have a point there. The Donald is getting awfully close to becoming another Howard Hughes.
Trump really liked Martina Navratilova, according her her ex Nancy Lieberman.
[quote]Trump''s wife is Muslim??!\
That was a joke, a reference to the large Muslim population in the former Yugoslavia. The logic is just as valid as the birthers''.
[quote]How can he be homophobic? In his business, I''m sure he deals with gay men ALL of the time.%0D\
Course he will. Who do you think designed his toupe?
The Donald will headlline a Tea Party rally in South Florida tomorrow.
His coloring is so fucking weird. Apricot hair, orange skin, yellow eyebrows and pale pink lips.
Tea Party rally? Does that mean Trump is seeking GOP support and/or nomination? Is he even a registered Republican to begin with?
Just imagine. The Trump House and Casino, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue....
A Tea Party rally with Donald Trump. And Rep. Allen West for comic relief. Some of you South Floridians better go over there tomorrow and report back.
He needs to sit his ugly ass down.
Republicans were very "concerned" about \
presidential candidates having enough experience last election. I wonder if they will be as concerned this time?
So Donald Trump - aka ''fart arse'' - doesn''t get gay marriage. Well I don''t get silly cockheads with comb-overs!%0D\
Hope his bollocks drop off. Fucking fascist.%0D\
Like Wall Street is corrupt enough right now, we don''t need one of them as President too.
He wants Snooki on the ticket with him.
lol, why? His first wife is a dyke.
I don''t support Donald Trump.
Trump, Obama, and the Clintons all agree there should be no gay marriage. Why do you attack only The Donald?
[quote]Who do you think designed his toupe?
Trump promotes his anti-gay stand. Obama hides from it, which is better than promoting it for votes.
And I don''t support marrying for looks/money. Guess he''s fucked in my book.
Everybody marries for looks.
^ Oh really? You''re telling me Donald''s wife married him for his looks?
Trump is the worst sort of American. The type which makes all the world despise America.
He''s just promoting himself. These kind of peacock-strutting wheeler-dealers appeal to a slice of the electorate but never can build a broad appeal. %0D\
You know Donald we''re even I don''t support marriage between bullies with over inflated egos who marry eurotrash whores or blonde ambitionists. Now go away to the obscurity you so richly deserve. BEGONE.
HRH Maria Von Seyfertitz
WHAT A SURPRISE.
Men who wear hair made from foreign animals should not be allowed to marry.
This man is a buffoon, a circus clown, a Macy''s Parade balloon.
Maybe he''ll step aside in favor of Newt.
How many more wives will Trump go through before he recognizes the Sanctity of Marriage?
I thought this jackass was going back to TV but it looks like he''s still stirring the political pot.
Please stop bumping up this thread.%0D
[quote]Please stop bumping up this thread.%0D\
It''s important to know your enemies, thus this thread will continue to be bumped.
As a long time Trump booster, this news is pretty devastating. I guess the countries needs are more than gay equality so I''d still vote for him, but I wouldn''t do it with as whole a heart as I would otherwise : (
The fact that you don''t even know the difference between "countries" and "country''s" may explain why you would vote for a jerk like Trump. I suppose you would like to see him on a ticket with Omarosa.
R105, why on \
Earth would you suport a multiply married cheater with children from each, a blatant liar, fake billionaire with multiple bankruptcies. \
You are a fuckig moron.
[quote]You are a fuckig moron.%0D\
Trump loves da gays....\
[quote]Trump promotes his anti-gay stand. Obama hides from it, which is better than promoting it for votes.\
Yes like he''s hidden from DADT, other pro-gay legislation and hiring high-profile gay staff. Obama is obviously not against gays, he''s against handing the country over to Republicans. \
But you already know that, you miserable troll.
[R20] That''s because Pigez Hilton (who is also going bald like Trump) would sell his sould to the devil for some attention and publicity.%0D\
And this pig Donald Chump should just STFU. While we''re at it, his double-chinned son Don Jr. looks like a queer himself.
I don't support it either, and automatically if you disagree with a liberal or almost anyone who supports gay marriage, they call you a fucked up asshole for it. It is so nice to see that you people are so tolerant and understanding as you claim and claim to be.
Are you a Log Cabin Republican, R112?
Trump obviously doesn't support straight marriage either.
Darryl Hammond on SNL imitates him and Trump laughs.
But Rosie made him look like a fool on The View when she imitated him and he HATES her.
Get over it, Donald.
i think that gay marriage because it is their choose to love who they want who cares about their choose in marriage. it should be illegal that is my argument.
Who's going to take a man seriously, who looks like the tanning lady with orange hair?
And he thinks his opinion is important, why? I guess he just supports dumping your wife for a newer model every so often. What a hypocritical slimeball.
Is Donald the pig crying and upset now that Obama endorsed gay marriage?
what makes you think r112 is a gay, r113?
for the same reason we think you, R120, are a idiot.
No one cares what you think anyway donald duck.
I would like to tell R112 that I'm not tolerant of him. I'm never tolerant of goddamn fucking ignorant assholes, never have been, never claimed to be.
I don't have a gun...
George Takei was supposed to have dinner with Donald in April to discuss gay rights. Did it happen? I heard nothing about it.
[quote]I don't support it either, and automatically if you disagree with a liberal or almost anyone who supports gay marriage, they call you a fucked up asshole for it. It is so nice to see that you people are so tolerant and understanding as you claim and claim to be
You know why you're a fucked up asshole? Because you think your right to be intolerant should be tolerated.
You're a fucked up asshole because you're whining that your right to persecute is being violated.
You're a fucked up asshole because you're expressing this idiocy on a *GAY* messageboard.
R124 Yep, his son said the two did have dinner together, but he didn't know what the result was. Which most likely means the fat slob didn't change his mind. Not surprising.
Takei is a better man than most. Just a good soul.
Donald Trump isn't fit to eat out of a dog bowl on the floor nest to Takei.
Trump believes marriage should only be between a man and a female prostitute.
What a useless piece of shit. I hope he and Ann Coulter die in the same fire.
Trump Announces He's A Very Sad Man
NEW YORK—In a blockbuster announcement today, Donald Trump announced that he is a very sad man who has nothing to live for other than drawing attention to himself. "I'm a sad, pathetic human being and a complete waste of life," said Trump, adding that he lives an empty existence, and that he is nothing more than a corporate shill, as well as a failed husband, father, and human being. "I am the piece of shit you stepped in on your way to work. I am the vomit that hurls out of your mouth when you are sick. I want to kill myself very badly. Thank you." Trump then slit his throat from ear to ear.
"I don't support gay marriage"...He must have pissed off his stylist when he said that. At least now we know why his hair is the way it is.
But he brings gays to work on Celebrity Apprentice to get higher ratings!!!! What a crook!!! He should be castrated.
any update on this evil baby boomer's thoughts regarding gay marriage?
Like Paris Hilton, he is the very definition of simpleminded [rich] white trash. Someone should start a "People of Walmart" site for wealthy backwards turds like this. This would be my first submission (not Trump, but just as stupid):
SCOTT DISICK: I WIPE MY ASS WITH $100 BILLS
[quote]I have posted on DL in the past that Trump was homophobic and gotten lots of vitriol for it. So, I'm sure DL will ignore this thread or rant about how it is unfair to St. Donald.
Well, he is ugly inside and out, rotten, pure racist and arrogant. I guess many faceless DLers can relate to him because of that!
Please die in a grease fire.
And use Nene Leakes as an accelerant.
OK fine, he can't support gay marriage?That wrinkled arangutan asspimple doesn't have to.
It's not at all important what he feels or thinks on this subject. He's not in a position to do anything for or against gay marriege so as far as I'm concerned him and his 'opnions' totaly irrelevent.
R143 but it's annoying because plenty of people look up to him. A lot of young conservative business-type hetero men dream of being Trump.
I won't hear a word said against Nene Leakes, R142. Nene loves the gays.
OP, your headline should read,
"Old man with a headrug desperately tries to stay relevant: The world yawns."
"Well, he is ugly inside and out, rotten, pure racist and arrogant. I guess many faceless DLers can relate to him because of that!"
Frankly, most DLers really don't care what kind of asshole you are as long as you support gay marriage or are not on the record opposing it. Bigotry towards other groups, being an exploitative piece of shit, personal hypocrisy--none of that matters as long as they do not know for a fact that you oppose gay marriage. Once said opposition has been established, then any basis they may have once had for defending you either goes out the window, or magically becomes a suddenly valid reason to hate you. Okay, NOW we can acknowledge Trump's a loathsome, idiot birther and con artist--because he's against gay marriage! We're very, very lucky this site is not indicative of the gay community as a whole, because many of the posters here are completely fucked in the head.
R147 He is a huge anti-muslim, DL was sooo happy with St.Donald until he's against gay marriage!
The original post is over two and a half years old.
Like many other people in the US and worldwide, I wonder if his opinion has evolved since then.
"Donald Trump says he's pro-life, anti-gay marriage, and loves Sarah Palin"
Broadcast on 2/6/2013
Anti-muslim/anti-semitic does not equal gay-friendly.
Recently encountered Mr Trump in Scotland (too long to explain and not that interesting)
His hair is a positive CONFECTION of twists, spins and teases...
My friend insists that it is a wig - if it is, then it was made by Willy Wonka on an off-day...
I have a terrible feeling Donald Trump is kind of emblematic of the type of person people in other countries consider "American?"
I remember when he did the Commodore Hotel. His first big NY gig. He just wrapped the damned thing in dark glass, the cheapest reno I've ever seen. Typical of his taste. Has anyone ever seen his apartment in the TT? There's his taste right there. Gold leaf fountains in the living room.
Having an apprentice/employee married to E! entertainment personality does not make St. Donald any gay-friendlier.
Why was a thread about this shitbag has-been bumped?
I always wonder about bewigged types who put so much obvious effort into the styling of the wig. I mean, at exactly what point do they just give up the ghost and let fate take it's course? Isn't gluing a pile of hair to your scalp effort enough?
Because he came out as fag-hater, an honest man I respect very much. A man who doesn't pander to certain group of people and has the balls to show himself for what he is. Maybe, in the future, if he gets back into his St.Donald closet, I'll change my mind.
The guy is the host of a silly reality show on failing NBC. Who gives a shit. And NOBODY looks up to or dreams of being Donald Trump. Is it the 80s? The guy lost his credibility when he became the spokesman for the birthers. Probably long before that actually.
Young buisnesmen look up to people like bill gates,mark zuckerberg, people like that. Young people dont even know trump actually aside from the reality shows .
The only reason he's saying he's against gay marriage is because he seriously thinks he has a shot at becoming president of the USA and is already pandering to tea party interests. His megalomania has become truly delusional.
R158 not true at all. Trump is viewed in business as the ultimate success story and synonymous with wealth. He's not young but his brand and reputation are established. Plenty of young gun hot shot business hetero males want to be the modern Trump.
Personally I would pay someone big money to run up to Trump and run his/her hands through his hair, exposing just what the situation up there is. I'm actually shocked 1 of those brazen pranksters hasn't tried it yet. I think most people would view this daredevil as a hero.
[quote]The only reason he's saying he's against gay marriage is because he seriously thinks he has a shot at becoming president
Wrong. Donald campaigns to make money. He sells his bullshit books to his campaign at inflated prices. He also gets free press while he does it.
Sarah Palin did the same thing - using campaign stops to shill her book and forcing her campaign to purchase thousands of copies.
They need to be provocative enough to scare bigots into donating.
Donald's "Trump University" will keep him out of the running.
Please 'splain me just WHY this guy is relevant to ... anything???
nor does he support a friar tuck hairline...
doesn't mean it's a good thing
trim that fucking comb over pops!
Do we care?
I loathe Obama, but not because I adore the homos.
He is right to express his views, l love honest people, you gays dont want people to pretend which is not right.
[quote] l love honest people,
Shame you're too dim to figure out "the Donald's" motives for the expression of said views.
I was watching some bit with him on CNN with my mother who has Alzheimer's. For the duration of the segment, she kept marveling at his ridiculous hair. Over and over and over again, "What does that man have on his head? My god, look at that!" Cracked me up.
Even with his fortune he hasn't been able to buy class and intelligence.
