Lorrie Morgan Backs Out Of GLAAD Event After Uproar Over Transphobic, Racist Social Media Posts Comments (0)

Country singer Lorrie Morgan, who had been set to perform as part of GLAAD's Ty Herndon and Cody Alan-hosted Concert for Love and Acceptance in Nashville in June, has backed out after complaints regarding her thoughtless (at best) social media posts.

Read My Original Post About Morgan's Vile Facebook Shares

The name of the event had little to do with Morgan's Facebook page, on which she shared a nakedly racist anti-Michelle Obama meme, and on which she made clear she is firmly against trans bathroom rights.

She also shared a meme from an anti-marriage equality page, though she later professed to strongly believe in equality.

In her first stab at calming the complaints, Morgan pathetically claimed she had simply put her foot in her mouth, and chalked it up to wine. She never took responsibility for the content of what she posted, instead arguing that she is not anti-LGBT:

WIDGETTMZ: First two victims of the Manchester terror attack revealed — one was just 8 years old. ISIS claims responsibility. Trump weakly calls ISIS “evil losers.”

WIDGETMother Jones: 7 of the 10 states most reliant on food stamps voted for Trump — and he's decimating the program. Bye, y'all.

WIDGETWaPo: Trump specifically asked two intel officials to deny any Trump/Russian collusion.

WIDGETNYT: Monica Lewinsky trashes Roger Ailes — I love a good o-BITCH-uary. And he deserves it. And screw his 17-year-old, revenge-seeking kid.

WIDGETCrime Watch Daily: Man arrested for removing trans woman's testicles with NO medical training.

WIDGETTowleroad: Horrifying: Two young men were caned 83 times in Indonesia's sharia-ruled Aceh province. Crowd cheers them on.

WIDGETThe Guardian: Yes, Canadian students, I hear you when you say Lou Reed's “Walk on the Wild Side” is transphobic. I just think you're dead wrong.

WIDGETPalm Beach Post: A sinkhole has opened up in front of Trump's Mar-a-Lago — maybe that ceremony with the glowing orb backfired?

WIDGETYouTube @ Matt Novak: Melania bats her husband's hand away in public as they arrive in Israel:

WIDGETPolitico: Podesta brands Trump “absolutely crazy.” And you know, he's absolutely right.

WIDGETNYT: James Dale writes about how the Boy Scouts of America can finally start reflecting American values of inclusion.

GLAAD In Need Of A GLAAD Moment Of Its Own Over Lorrie Morgan Brouhaha Comments (0)

Lorrie Morgan is a big-time country singer who will be appearing at an LGBTQ event co-hosted LorrieMorganPublicity by out country artist Ty Herndon and out CMT host Cody Alan — and yet, on her personal Facebook page, she has routinely mocked trans rights.

This is messed up.

The Concert for Love and Acceptance is a nice idea, a benefit for GLAAD held in Nashville and featuring country acts like Herndon, Billy Gilman (GLAAD misspells his name in its press release), Dana Goldberg, Kree Harrison, Michael Ray, Mickey Guyton, Runaway June, Ryan Kinder, Street Corner Symphony, Thompson Square and Trent Harmon. It's a positive thing to hold an event for LGBTQ issues in the South, where empathy for the cause is perceived to be low, and Morgan's inclusion was a good idea before her antipathy for trans people came to light.

I mean, what do you do when one of the stars appearing has shared memes like this:

Morgan is approvingly passing on a nasty, anti-trans message that was initially posted by a group that is opposed to gay marriage.

She also shared this one, which is the tip of the iceberg as far as her anti-Obama tendencies:

WIDGETJackson Free Press: Koch-funded Republican legislator says those removing Confederate monuments should be lynched, fails to see the irony.

WIDGETPolitico: Billy Bush says his infamous dialogue with Trump was not “locker-room talk.” However, he didn't really take it seriously, didn't feel it was literal.

WIDGETHuff Post: Surprise! Trump's beloved goon Michael Flynn expected to plead the Fifth during testimony. Has a hard time telling the pravda.

WIDGETWaPo: Try to imagine Obama standing amidst Arabs, his hand on a glowing orb, for a similar photo op. How would Trump's base react to that?

Stop Taking Pence: Notre Dame Students Walk Out On Veep Comments (0)

Dozens of students (and many parents) walked out of corrupt, anti-LGBTQ, anti-woman VP Mike Pence's Notre Dame commencement speech.

I like this as much as booing — which is a lot. Good for them. Mike Pence has a right to speak, but does not deserve to be heard.

WIDGETLad Bible: Mark Lester, of Oliver! (1968) fame claims he could be the bio dad of Michael Jackson's children, and that Madonna got naked to try to seduce Jackson.

WIDGETHuff Post: Trump softens tone on Islam — in front of Saudi king. Back home, he's said Saudi Arabia was behind 9/11. His arms deal with the oppressive regime? Illegal.

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: Report — Saudis giving $100M to Ivanka's foundation. How is this different in any way from Clinton Foundation accusations?!

WIDGETDListed: Watch and listen to a weepy Harry Styles duet with Stevie Nicks.

WIDGETExtraTV: The Rock on running for prez: “I'm in!”

Fox News Still Mad Obama Bowed To Saudi King — Trump Just Curtsied! Comments (0)

As pointed out by Matt McDermott on Twitter, Fox News ran (and is still running) a piece jubilant Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 12.50.00 PM over the fact that Trump didn't bow to the Saudi king like Obama did.

An hour later, Trump literally curtsied while receiving a giant gold welcoming necklace (that was denied Obama).

Now, right-wingers are crowing on Twitter how Trump was treated so much better than Obama was.

By the Saudis.

Who were behind 9/11.

Allegedly.

So now, right-wingers love Russia and Saudi Arabia. That whole comparison between right-wing Christians and right-wing Muslims is sounding a lot more rational now. They don't fly airplanes into buildings — no, they just suck up to those who do.

Liberals get hell for saying that not all Muslims are terrorists, yet Trump will curtsy to the king of a country with indisputable ties to 9/11.

Amazing how much people can change when they have no code of ethics and no moral center.

Also, the right-wingers are circulating a fake meme that suggests Melania Trump is the first first lady not to wear a head scarf on a trip to Saudi Arabia — not so. It's traditional not to.

But while we're speaking about it, Melania arrived with no head scarf and yet when Michelle Obama arrived the same way, Trump blasted her for it:

DARYziRUQAAZPnT.jpg-large(Image via Twitter)

Again: No code of ethics, no moral center, pure lies.

Let's hope this comes true:
