The gay dating app Hornet managed to mount a billboard directly across the street from the venue where the fourth Republican presidential primary debate took place Tuesday evening.
The poster, erected beside The Milwaukee Theater, prominently features a cartoon elephant (named Trunk, no less), and his coiffure is markedly similar to that of a certain gasbag and Republican front-runner.
A unicorn, wrapped in an American flag, asks Trunk, “Into?”
“Open to debate,” Trunk responds.
To the right, a text message reads: “I have so many fabulous friends!,” a clear reference to a 2011 Trump quote that opposed gay marriage:
“I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”
“We wanted to inject some humor and poke fun at the race,’ a spokesperson told Newsweek. “For most gay men around the world, they don’t enjoy full equality, so it is important that at a debate like this we interject ourselves into politics — even if the candidates aren’t talking about our issues.’
