Donald Trump: I oppose gay marriage because of long unattractive golf putters. WTF?
I’m used to politicians comparisons, correlations, and analogies not really making a lot of sense, but this one is just unfathomable to me.
In an interview by the N.Y. Times Trump explained his opposition to gay marriage as follows:
“It’s like in golf,” he said. “A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive,” said Mr. Trump, a Republican. “It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”
He said that, should he run, he would offer himself as a “conservative with a big heart.”
/A conservative with a big heart who will champion only short putters? ;)
