Pro-Trump preacher unleashes homophobic rant at Chicago’s lesbian mayor Lori Lightfoot


Pro-Trump preacher Dave Daubenmire has taken aim at the mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, for being a married lesbian. Daubenmire, more commonly known as right-wing internet persona ‘Coach Dave’, hit out at the pioneering Chicago mayor, who is one of the few LGBT+ people of colour elected to office in the US. On his online Pass the Salt Live internet show this week, Daubenmire shared a photo of Lightfoot with her wife and insisted “nobody sane” would vote for her. Per a clip recorded by Right Wing Watch, he vents: “I want somebody to tell me how that woman gets elected any place, anywhere. “That is the mayor of Chicago and her wife. I’m not being judgemental, I’m merely looking at what I see and say to myself, how could any sane person elect that woman to be head of the city?”
