President Donald Trump recently appointed anti-Muslim and anti-LGBTQ cable news pundit Jenna Ellis as a senior legal adviser to him and his campaign. Ellis has promoted harmful and ineffective conversion therapy; claimed that “Christians cannot follow God and accept or condone or participate in homosexuality”; and said gay and bisexual men have higher rates of HIV because “we cannot escape God’s moral law and His supremacy.” She’s also claimed that “Islam is not freedom. It’s not peaceful. It is not Liberty. It is not American.” Ellis previously worked as a director for the James Dobson Family Institute, which is named after and led by the anti-LGBTQ conservative commentator. She’s a regular contributor to the Washington Examiner’s Beltway Confidential blog and frequently appears on cable television, including as a representative of the Trump 2020 campaign.
