WATCH: Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin humiliates herself trying to justify her party’s anti-gay platform


On CNN Monday morning, Fallin, the co-chair of the GOP platform committee, trotted out Trump’s slogan “make America great again” and claimed that this new generation of the Republican Party will “stand for the human rights of all people, not just one segment, one class, one race, one preference, but for all people in the United States.”


The problem with that, however, is that the GOP platform supports harmful LGBT conversion therapy, believes marriage is only between a man and a woman, argues transgender people can’t use the bathroom that makes sense for them and even came close to saying that every child deserves a “married mom and dad.”


Fallin claimed that there are gay people on the platform committee, promising, “We’re an inclusive party; we’re a big tent.” However, the LGBT person on the platform committee, Rachel Hoff, has already said publicly that her experience on the committee and the platform the GOP has put out makes her want to leave the Republican Party for the first time in her life.


The Daily Beast reported last week that Hoff might be an out LGBT person, but the committee itself is comprised mostly of anti-LGBT loons. Including one Baptist Deacon, who took out a newspaper ad claiming homosexuality is “killing people 2 to 3 times the rate of smoking.”


Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin was an early supporter of GOP nominee Donald Trump’s, despite his open support of LBGT people. Yet, when it comes to the Republican Party platform, that support turned into homophobia.
