Behold. The White House published this photograph of First Lady Melania Trump and the other spouses of NATO leaders at the Royal Castle of Laeken in Brussels during the recent NATO summit.
Initially left off the captioned list of names was the First Gentleman of Luxembourg, Gauthier Destenay, who is married Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, making Bettel the first European Union head of government to marry a same-sex partner.
The man in the photograph is gay, and his name was the only name left off.
I was inclined to assume that the omission of Bettel's name was an act bigotry given Trump's complete abandonment of his campaign commitment to the LGBTQ community, but in addition to the omission of Bettel, Melania Trump's name was listed twice, Brigitte Macron, the first lady of France, was listed as “Brigitte Trogneux,” and the year of the photograph was listed as 2917.
The trifecta of stupidity.
So the omission was probably typical Trump incompetence rather than Trump bigotry.
Though possibly both.
This should not be surprising coming from a President who didn't know that Frederick Douglass was no longer alive.
A President whose administration who invented The Bowling Green Massacre, the Swedish Incident, and "alternative facts."
A President who continues to assert that his Electoral victory was one of the largest in American history when it was actually one of the narrowest.
A President whose administration managed to unbelievably include a typo in Trump's official Presidential portrait.
It's almost always correct to assume the worst from this President. It's just difficult to determine if the worst is the result of his complete incompetence or his despicable nature.
