Clinton flies rainbow flag over White House because “every month is pride month”
WASHINGTON D.C. -- On Monday, President Hillary Rodham Clinton ordered the White House to fly the rainbow flag next to the Stars and Stripes because "every month is pride month."
Immediately, horrified Republicans accused Clinton of being a "huge lesbo" and "supporting the homosexual agenda," accusations to which Clinton responded with a series of one-word replies: "Yay," and "Yay!"
As Secretary of State, Clinton made transgender rights a focus of her work, changing passport rules to make it easier for transgender Americans to safely travel abroad. According to White House Press Secretary Leslie Jones, Clinton is "eager to acknowledge and celebrate LGBTQ Americans' contributions, particularly those serving in the Armed Forces."
But some are saying that there may be a middle finger at the bottom of the rainbow flag.
Twitter expert Sarah Lerner immediately interpreted Clinton's decision to fly the rainbow flag as a pointed rebuke to failed former GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, who Clinton defeated by 3 million votes in November's election. Last week, Trump who called on Clinton to ban transgendered soldiers from serving in the military, arguing that they "undermine the military's culture of rape and sexual predation."
Last week, Clinton issued a public statement of support for General Heather McMullin, commander in Afghanistan, the first 4-star general to transition from man to woman while in active service.
"We need more women running the military, and I am delighted that McMullin is the first woman to achieve this rank," Clinton said.
