In an interview on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Donald Trump reversed his opposition to gay marriage by announcing that, as president, he will not seek to repeal laws that allow same-sex couples to marry because that right was affirmed by the Supreme Court.
Donald in 2011: “I just don’t feel good about it. I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it, and I take a lot of heat because I come from New York. You know, for New York it’s like, how can you be against gay marriage? But I’m opposed to gay marriage.”
And yet in that same interview he signaled he will appoint judges who will outlaw abortion, even though a woman’s right to choose whether to carry a fetus to term was also affirmed by the Supreme Court.
The shift on gay marriage is a significant reversal. In a campaign interview on CNN last year, Donald was asked by Jake Tapper, “But what do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says, ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?'”
Donald — a serial adulterer and infamous philanderer — responded, “I don’t say anything. I’m just for traditional marriage.”
