Those who make big bucks, and those who make whoopie:
Users of Grindr, the leading gay hookup app, have voted Hillary Clinton their “Straight Ally of the Year.”
The former secretary of state joins a slate of other noteworthy figures highlighted in Grindr’s ‘Best of Awards’ for 2014, including Neil Patrick Harris (voted “Gay Icon of the Year” for the second year in a row) and Vladimir Putin (voted “Enemy of the LGBT Community”).
While Clinton’s team has not responded to request for comment, it seems likely she would welcome the positive reaction from Grindr’s gay users.
Clinton did not publicly support same-sex marriage until last year, after she stepped down as secretary of state.
What is it with these supposed liberals—Obama, Hillary—denying people the right to love whom they will? She was senator from New York for eight years, for pete’s sake! No gay constituent ever asked her about their right to marry? How come I’ve supported gay marriage for a long as I’ve known they wanted to marry, while these guys were hung up on their prejudices for years? Where’s my award?
Anyhow, it’s the moneybags, and not just the f—friends of Dorothy, who support Hillary:
According to a CNBC survey, Hillary Clinton — with 31% support — would be the top choice for people with “investable assets of $1 million or more” if the 2016 election were held today.
Clinton is followed by former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush with 18%, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with 14% and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders with 11%.
You know who’s got a smile as wide as the shores of Gitche Gumee? Lieawatha, of course. That “the bankers” and “the mega-wealthy” support Hillary is just another arrow in Liz Warren’s quiver.
