Trump is really uniting those Republicans, isn’t he?

The executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans — the group’s first woman to have that position — has resigned following the group’s endorsement of President Trump’s reelection, the second official to step down in as many weeks.
The group’s chairman, Robert Kabel, and vice chair, Jill Homan, made the surprise endorsement in an Aug. 15 op-ed for the Washington Post, crediting the president with “removing gay rights as a wedge issue from the old Republican playbook” and “taking bold actions that benefit the LGBTQ community.” The organization did not make an endorsement in 2016.
“While we do not agree with every policy or platform position presented by the White House or the Republican Party,” they added, “we share a commitment to individual responsibility, personal freedom and a strong national defense.”
According to the Washington Blade, the group’s executive director, Jerri Ann Henry, resigned over “discontent with Trump and dissatisfaction with Log Cabin’s approach to defending its Trump endorsement in the media.” Henry was named to the position in November 2018.
Once again this is yet another group who I have trouble understanding how they can associate themselves with the Republicans.
You know, along with women, blacks, and patriots.
If Trump accomplishes anything, it might be to finally force some of these groups to recognize that they have been supporting folks who care nothing for them and only use them for votes and to provide political cover.
