White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted about #LadyG last summer and now the GOP is freaking the fuck out.
Posted to Psaki’s personal Twitter page last August it said,
“Only in 2020 does #LadyG get to push a bunch of debunked conspiracy theories while questioning @SallyQYates (aka an American hero)”
Of course the nickname comes from a Medium article published last year (and deleted since) where a male sex worker claimed to have had the senator, who he called “Lady G” as a client.
Gay porn star Sean Harding, who threatened to out a certain “a homophobic republican senator” tweeted,
“There is a homophobic republican senator who is no better than Trump who keeps passing legislation that is damaging to the lgbt and minority communities.
Every sex worker I know has been hired by this man. Wondering if enough of us spoke out if that could get him out of office?”
The hashtag #LadyG has trended over and over, used by countless accounts. Psaki is one of millions of others who used the hashtag, but NOW conservatives are losing their shit about perceived homophobia?
Yes, the party that tramples LGBTQ rights at every opportunity is suddenly the Twitter word police. (And yet Majorie Taylor Green gets a Twitter pass…?)
In a statement to Fox News, Kevin Bishop, a spokesman for Graham’s office, said,
“Very disappointed someone in her position would embrace this style politics. It says more about her than it does about Senator Graham.”
And according to Queerty,
“…Graham voted yes on a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, voted yes on banning gay adoptions, and co-sponsored amending Constitution to define traditional marriage. He also holds a 0% rating with both the HRC and ACLU for his stances on gay rights and civil rights.”
Here are some of the freak-out tweets from people who I’m SURE who were concerned about Trump banning trans people from the military and are champions of The Equality Act. (Sarcasm)
