Jenna Ellis, a lawyer who worked to overturn the 2020 election in favor of former U.S. President Donald Trump, recently referred to lesbian soccer champion Megan Rapinoe and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles as “losers” after current President Joe Biden awarded them the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
In response, numerous Twitter commenters reminded Ellis that she represents a twice-impeached president who lost the popular vote twice, that she herself was fired from a Colorado district attorney’s office for incompetence, and that fellow Trump lawyer and failed presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani once farted on her.

Jenna Ellis does have one distinction, the sole reported case of contracting COVID-19 by fart, when the virus was enshrouded in a gaseous plume from Rudy Giuliani. pic.twitter.com/xmy2XaOAPs

Simone Biles and Megan Rapinoe are top-tier athletes.
Jenna Ellis is a criminal who is about to be disbarred and sent to prison.

Loser, Jenna Ellis?
As in being the LOSER of your job at traffic court for incompetence?
As in working for the LOSER of the election, Trump?
As in being the LOSER of 30+ of your election cases?
As in joining a "think tank" with Christian swinger LOSER Jerry Falwell, Jr? pic.twitter.com/t5aOIwHfqn

During the presidential medal ceremony, Rapinoe wore a suit bearing the initials of Brittney Griner, the lesbian pro-basketball player currently imprisoned in Russia on drug charges. Griner’s supporters are urging Biden to help secure her release.
Meanwhile, Ellis has a track record of attacking LGBTQ people. She has referred to LGBTQ people as “sinners” whose “conduct is vile and abominable.” After the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting that killed 49 people at a gay bar, she condemned LGBTQ civil rights.
She has also said that HIV among gay and bi men is “God’s moral law and His supremacy,” that “transgender women are still men,” and she also supports conversion therapy, the pseudoscientific form of mental torture that purports to turn LGBTQ people into heterosexual and cisgender individuals.
She is now working for the election campaign of Pennsylvania senator and gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, an anti-LGBTQ Christian nationalist.
