Pro-Trump gay men talk jobs at rally, get days of bigoted backlash and death threats in return

An Ohio gay couple are facing persecution — up to and including threats upon their lives — for supporting Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Dewey Lainhart, 31, of Middletown, and Cody Moore, 22, of Kettering disclosed their support for the GOP candidate during an interview with The Wall Street Journal at Trump’s Oct. 13 campaign stop at U.S. Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati.

The Journal’s Jason Bellini posted a video of his interview with the couple to his Facebook page, where the two explained their reasoning for voting Trump. Itt immediately went viral.

“I’m tired of the bulls**t government,” Lainhart told Bellini in the video. “It’s time for a change. Trump’s the man for it.”

“Plus I really feel like he would bring more jobs to the country,” Moore added.

Comments to the video describe the couple as, “Like cows chewing their cud. Dumber than dirt,” and “Idiotic fool’s.”

But what’s worse is that it’s turned their lives into something of a living hell.

They’ve been asked to stop patronizing gay-friendly establishments and have received death threats.

“The gay community is not a very supportive group,” Moore told the Journal in a follow-up interview.

For the record, when the men were asked if they felt “comfortable” at the freedom-loving Trump rally, they both said that they did.

“Nobody’s said nothing about it.”
