Marco Rubio has done what Trump should have done but hasn't

Marco Rubio
Tuesday, Marco Rubio denounced Chechen atrocities against gay men from the floor of the United States Senate. Ever since Rubio keynoted for Mat Staver at an event staged by John Stemberger, I have been predisposed not to like anything that he does. This is different. Rubio has taken a principled stand. He might also be trying to embarrass Trump by essentially criticizing Trump's buddy, Vladimir Putin.

Rubio said that the United States government should “do more to ensure that all people are protected and those who harm them are held responsible.”

He went on to say: “We should use our voice on the global stage to call attention to these horrifying acts and to ensure that they are condemned in an appropriate way, ultimately in the hopes that they will be stopped.”

Where is that great friend of the LGBT community, Donald J. Trump? I only hope that LGBT citizens who voted for Trump feel as foolish as they look.
