Richard Grenell is now the highest ranking gay man in the Trump administration. The hawkish former aide to National Security Adviser John Bolton was confirmed by the Senate on Thursday to be the next ambassador to Germany. Log Cabin Republicans cheered the confirmation. "Ric Grenell's confirmation is historic for two reasons: He has now officially become the highest-ranking openly gay official ever in a Republican administration. Second: Despite the interminable delays of Democrats hell-bent on standing on the wrong side of history, today the United States Senate confirmed a gay nominee not 'in spite of' Republicans, or 'with Republican support,' but because of Republican support," said the group's president, Gregory T. Angelo.
