President Trump made history this week after appointing Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence. The new job, a cabinet-level position, makes Grenell the highest serving openly gay man to hold federal office in United States history.

“After 30 years in American politics, it has been by far the most welcoming administration in my lifetime,” Grennell told The Post. “President Trump is a strong supporter of equality for LGBT people. I know this personally.
“There are plenty of supportive things the President has said to me and others, but as any LGBT person will tell you, real support does not come from constant virtue-signaling, but in always being treated equally. And that’s been my experience.”
Richard Grenell is gay (which Putin hates) and spent his time in Germany pushing them to expand their NATO spending (which Putin hates), block Nordstream2 and stop buying Russian gas (which Putin hates), and support Crimea (which Putin hates). Other than that, makes sense you nut https://t.co/c0DbBDXFss— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) February 22, 2020
President Trump promoted Richard Grenell because he is QUALIFIED, not because he is gay.— Brigitte Gabriel (@ACTBrigitte) February 20, 2020
I'm sick and tired of seeing leftists suggest otherwise.
I didn't see the left complaining when Obama promoted Ambassador Susan Rice to be his National Security Advisor.
Hey @PeteButtigieg - your entire campaign is built around progress for gay and lesbian people— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) February 21, 2020
Why haven’t you said ONE WORD about Ric Grennell being appointed to a CABINET position, the first ever in history?
Maybe because you don’t care about LGBT progress, only your career
If Grennell makes Susan Rice this nervous, he must be the right man for the job! Watch below as Rice says Grennell is “one of the most massively dishonest people I’ve ever encountered.”
Susan Rice on @RichardGrenell: “The problem is that Rick Grenell is one of the most massively dishonest people I’ve ever encountered. I’m not using this language lightly. He is a hack and a shill and that’s all he’s ever been." pic.twitter.com/fDn3JwfrrT— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) February 21, 2020
