Despite being called out by media outlets and professional pollsters for being incomplete, inaccurate, and “unlikely to be representative” of LGBTQ voters, Fox News still ran with Hornet’s poll as though it were true. Tucker Carlson even had gay conservative, Eddie Scarry, author of “Privileged Victims,” on his primetime show to talk about it.

Yes it is OK! . #repost @realbrokebackpatriot ??? Today is the birthday of one of my favorite humans of all time: Rogan O’Handley aka @dc_draino. We met in the fall of 2017 before Brokeback was even Brokeback, and I could have never imagined we would be here 3 years later. Rogan has always been a TRUE friend and I can honestly say 100% I would not be where I am today without his support. Thank you to my dear friend, 35 is going to be YOUR YEAR! It is such an honor to have a front row seat on this journey with you ?? this photo is from 2018 Pride in St. Petersburg, Florida when Rogan and I trolled the parade ? it was at exactly this moment when this straight white male put on a gays for trump shirt and went to the pride parade with me that I knew we would be friends for life ?? @dc_draino #brokebackpatriot #gay #gayrepublicans #gayconservatives #gays4trump #gaysfortrump? #gaysofinstagram #logcabinrepublican #logcabinrepublicans #democratsfortrump #democratsdestroyamerica #walkaway #walkawaymarch #maga #trump2020 #trump #liberty #freethinker #liberalismisamentaldisorder #liberallies #bulliesofinstagram #bully #bullies #democratbullies #hatersgonnahate #haters #trump2020??
