People Can't Believe The RNC Chair Tweeted About Pride Month.


Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, tweeted her support for Pride Month and was met with immediate backlash, given the GOP's recent push for anti-LGBTQ legislation.

McDaniel wrote that the Republican Party was “proud to have doubled our LGBTQ support over the last 4 years,” and that she would “continue to grow our big tent by supporting measures that promote fairness and balance protections for LGBTQ Americans and those with deeply held religious beliefs.”

Happy #PrideMonth! The GOP is proud to have more than doubled our LGBTQ support in the last four years, and we will continue to expand our big tent by supporting measures that promote fairness and balance protections for LGBTQ Americans and those with deeply held religious beliefs. — Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) June 2, 2021

Many were taken aback by McDaniel's post.

Chasten Buttigieg, the husband of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who became the first openly gay person confirmed to a Cabinet position in February, led the criticism.

Chasten Buttigieg responded to McDaniel, saying, “Revisit your party’s platform before you open your mouth about #pride.”

I've met with those kids. 40% of homeless youth in this country are LGBTQ. Re-visit your party's platform before you open your mouth about #pride. https://t.co/z36BuFrQsO — Chasten Glezman Buttigieg (@Chasten) June 3, 2021

Others concurred:

"Cheers, queers! We're so glad there's four of you now! We're gonna have such a *good* time totally pretending to care about you while actually making it easier for the rest of us to discriminate against you, and you'll be like so helpful for planning the next coup!" https://t.co/4U7nBvOd0b — Zack Ford (@ZackFord) June 3, 2021

Is this now the party of diversity, equity, and inclusion? I'm going to need a better class of pandering than this. — Matt Youngblood (@_TheYoungBlood) June 3, 2021

The cognitive dissonance is staggering: on the first day of Pride Month, DeSantis signed legislation restricting rights...but cool — Kevin Kindelberger (@Kindelber2) June 2, 2021
