MSNBC anchor Katy Tur was clearly disgusted as she lambasted President Trump for breaking his promises to the LGBTQ community, saying they were only made to give his voters cover from accusations of homophobia.
Tur citing a memo obtained by the New York Times indicating that under the proposed policy, “a person’s gender would be defined by their genitalia at birth and could not be changed unless it was disputed by genetic testing.”
“It stands in stark contrast to a promise the president of the United States himself made while he was campaigning in 2016,” she said, cutting to footage of then-candidate Trump saying he would “do everything in [his] power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.”
“He came out at a rally in Colorado and waved around a rainbow flag,” Tur remarked sarcastically to co-host Ali Velshi. “It was an effort to give people justification, a bit of cover when people claimed that Donald Trump was not for LGBTQ people.”
