Some people don’t even know why they are protesting, and just going along for the ride.
That’s why in an interview with Fox News channel, one of the “Not My President’s Day” protest organizers Shane Saunders, had big issues trying to answer to a question Tucker Carlson asked him.
Carson asked Saunders- Why you — “as a gay man” — are afraid of Donald Trump on which Carson responded-“I’m not.”
“You just said you were protesting Trump because you’re fearful, particularly as you said ‘as a gay man.’ I asked you what is he going to do to you as a gay man, and you said nothing really.”
Saunders then answered- “My being gay is not the point of this.” “It’s well known that there’s potential legislation out there. There was a leaked report… I made an off the cuff remark about being a gay man, and I feel like I’ve been talking about that more than the actual protest itself. If you’d like to get back to talking about the protest, I’d be more than happy too.”
After this comment, Carson continued – “I asked you why you were protesting you said there’s a bunch of reasons, here’s one of them. I said I heard friends saying I’m gay and I’m scared of President Trump. You brought it up.”
“I also brought up the tax day protests,” Saunders answered. “We seem to kind of want to pigeon hole away from Trump’s taxes, which still have not been released.”
Earlier in the interview, Shane Saunders not knowing how to get out of the mess he got in, accused Tucker Carson of “twisting [his] words.”
As I can see this protestant tried to make a case for legislation that doesn’t even exist because in reality, Trump stands up for LBGT community. In fact, I remember him thanking the crowd during his RNC speech for applauding after he said we must protect the LBGT community. Well, Saunders, this was very embarrassing.
My friendly advice to you- next time don’t show on TV to discuss if you don’t have something smart to say.
