MA GOP official who threatened to kill George H. W. Bush cites Trump in refusal to apologize for anti-LGBT remarks

Published

on

A Republican county commissioner in Massachusetts is refusing to apologize after making anti-LGBT remarks because he says it’s what President Donald Trump would do.

The Cape Cod Times reported that Commissioner Ron Beaty has been called on to resign after he posted a poll on Twitter that asked if gay politicians are too biased to represent straight constituents.

“Generally speaking, are gay politicians too self-absorbed and self-centered to adequately represent ALL of their constituents in a fair and equitable manner?” Beaty wondered in his tweet.

Less than a week earlier, two gay politicians — state Sen. Julian Cyr (D) and state Rep. Sarah Peake (D) — were sworn in to office.

“I’m calling for Commissioner Beaty to resign, I’m that upset,” Republican state Rep. Timothy Whelan told the paper. “I don’t even know what else to say.”

Beaty, however, defiantly refused to apologize.

“I pretty much only do what President Donald Trump does relative to his social media postings,” Beaty wrote to the Times in an email. “If it is good enough for our president, whom I support 100 percent, then it is good enough for me as well.”

The paper noted that Beaty has previously been incarcerated for “threatening to kill President George H. W. Bush and other politicians in the early 1990s.”
