A transgender Target shopper fought back against a right-wing Christian protester who was shouting homophobic insults because Target allows transgender people to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity.
In the video found by JoeMyGod, the protester can be heard off camera shouting, “Do not come to Target! They let transgender people in the bathroom.”
The transgender customer happened to be nearby and approached the protester. “Yeah, and you know what, there’s a transgender person right here so you can just keep on walking,” he shouted.
The protester makes an about-face to shout at the customer, “That’s okay, you’re going to go to hell!”
The trans customer retorts back to the homophobe, “And you’re going to be an a**hole for the rest of your life!” The Target shopper also criticizes the gender flub: “Trans men aren’t women, a**hole.”
That’s when the protester berates all homosexuals because, in his eyes, they’re all transgender people. “Homosexuality is not okay with God,” he shouts. “Homosexuals are only 2 percent of the world’s population, but they take up 90 percent of the HIV. Some safe lifestyle that is, right?”
He then cites disproven myths that “bathroom predators” are being authorized by Target and their policies. “Kids have been having their pictures taken in Target bathrooms by pedophiles because Target makes it okay for grown men to put on a dress and go in the same bathroom as your daughter.”
He was ultimately escorted out by police while shouting, “Jesus Christ was not friends with any homos! I’m sorry to tell you guys that!”

Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, will tell Congress that he criticized President Donald Trump over his efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating a political rival.
The Trump megadonor-turned-diplomat appeared Thursday before three House committees to discuss his role in a White House scheme to enlist a foreign government to dig up campaign dirt against Joe Biden as Ukraine awaited congressionally approved military aid.
According to his prepared statement, Sondland will tell lawmakers that Ukraine was expected to announce "anti-corruption" investigations against the former vice president and his son Hunter Biden as a "one of the pre-conditions for securing a White House meeting" for its president Volodymyr Zelensky.

Lev Parnas, one of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani's henchmen who tried to help him pressure the Ukrainian government, has a long history of making death threats and associating with fraudsters, according to a new report from Politico.
According to Politico, a restraining order filed by a man who was once Parnas's landlord back in 2008 claimed that Parnas threatened to kill him after he asked him to vacate the apartment that he was renting.
"If you call the cops, they are not going to find you ever," Parnas told the man, according to the complaint.
‘Increasingly likely’ Bolton will be hauled before House investigators over Trump’s Ukraine fiasco: report
According to The Daily Beast, President Donald Trump's former National Security Adviser John Bolton is "increasingly likely" to be subpoenaed by Democratic investigators in the House as part of the impeachment proceedings into Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
Bolton, a longtime neoconservative war hawk, served in the role after Trump fired Gen. H. R. McMaster, but often clashed with the president on matters of national security and left the administration on bitter terms.
