Eric Trump Clarified That He’s Not Gay After Unwittingly Suggesting That He’s ‘Part Of’ The LGBT Community

After making an unusual proclamation that he’s “part of” the LGBT community, Eric Trump quickly became a Trending topic on Tuesday, which forced the president’s son to clarify his remarks.

While defending his father from a damaging New York Times report that seemingly enraged the president going into his first debate with Joe Biden, the younger Trump appeared to have outed himself on Fox & Friends while discussing how even a lesbian New Yorker supports his father.

“I’m telling you, I see it every day, the LGBT community, they are incredible and you should see how they’ve come out in full force for my father every single day,” Trump said. “I’m part of that community and we love the man and thank you for protecting our neighborhoods and thank you for protecting our cities.”

After social media latched onto the strange admission that he’s part of the LGBT community, Trump issued a statement to the New York Post clarifying that he is a happily married, heterosexual man. He also confirmed that he is not bisexual:

“To clarify, many of our close friends are part of the LGBT community, which was the intent of my statement — the left has taken that vote for granted for a long time and support from the gay community for my father is incredible,” Trump said.

“As to me personally, as I think you know, I am a happily married man to my wife, Lara.”

Naturally, Trump’s remark arrived far too late to stop social media users from having a field day with the Fox News clip as actual members of the LGBT community made it clear that Eric Trump joining their ranks is the last thing they need right now.
