Reality star Donald Trump on Monday lamented that President Barack Obama still had a job after the former CEO of Mozilla was forced to resign for funding groups that worked to strip LGBT of people of their existing marriage rights.
Last week, a gay Mozilla developer explained to newly-appointed CEO Brendan Eich that the executive was partially responsible for his same-sex British partner being forced to leave the U.S. because of a $1,000 donation to Proposition 8 — a 2008 California ballot measure that succeeded in rolling back marriage rights for LGBT people.
Instead of apologizing, Eich decided to step down from the Mozilla.
“Around 2008, you had the president of the United States supporting traditional marriage, if you go back and look,” Trump opined to the hosts of Fox & Friends on Monday. “And, you know, maybe he should step down because of the fact, you think of a lot of people would like to see that very much. Perhaps he should step down.”
“I think it’s really unfair what they’ve done to him,” he added.
“Absolutely,” Fox News host Steve Doocy agreed. “It’s okay in this country to have a different opinion.”
“That’s what the country is all about,” Trump replied. “What they’ve done to this man is really life shattering, and very unfair.”
“It sure it,” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck concluded.
During his 2008 campaign for president, then-Senator Obama announced his opposition to Proposition 8, and “the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution.”
