Why 2020 Democrats Can’t Take the LGBTQ+ Vote for Granted

Beto ran a 5K for the cause, Joe Biden took a turn behind the bar at the Stonewall Inn, Mayor Pete and Elizabeth Warren are selling Pride-themed items in their merch stores. It’s Pride Month, and the 2020 Democratic contenders have been courting LGBTQ voters in a big way. But although most LGBT voters identified as Democrats in 2018, being trans, gay or pansexual does not a Democrat make.

VICE News put together a panel made up of 12 members of the LGBTQ+ community and asked them about their politics — which were extremely diverse — and who they like for 2020.

“I think Donald Trump is really changing the Republican Party by working with the gay and lesbian community,” said Paul Ramirez, a Republican gay man and the vp of advertising at The Wisdom Companies. “If there was a homophobic drop of blood in him, we would have heard that 20 years ago.”

Others decidedly disagreed about Trump’s record on LBGTQ issues, and its effect on the community.

“When the Trump administration, or perhaps just Trump via Twitter, puts out a statement saying that ‘no more trans people are allowed in the military, that’s it we’re cutting you off and anybody in has got to leave.’ That affects the lives of transgender citizens of this country,” said actor Donnie Cianciotto, who identifies as a pansexual transgender man and a Democrat. “It makes us appear ‘less than’ to other people, who now can justify their bigotry and their transphobia, because look at what the government does.”

As for Mayor Pete, the openly gay candidate running for President, his out and proud status wasn’t enough for panelists, on either end of the political spectrum.

“There’s nothing fresh. He’s an Obama sequel,” said Brandon Straka, a Republican gay man and founder of the # WalkAway Campaign, which aims to get left-leaning voters to turn away from the Democratic Party. “The fact that he’s gay — that doesn’t mean he has my back as a trans person,” said LGBTQIA+ educator and activist Jamey Jesperson, who identifies as a progressive queer non-binary asexual transfemme. “It means nothing to me that he is a gay person, because he’s also cis, and he’s also white.”

Tim Ryan: Congress Should Investigate Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Trump

Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan gives us his thoughts on the recent wave of sexual misconduct allegations against politicians across both parties. Ryan says the Republicans missed an opportunity to send a message of intolerance for this behavior, and recommends an investigation into allegations against President Trump. Following is a transcript of the video. 

Rep. Tim Ryan: What’s happening I think is a great awakening with women across the United States of recognizing that they do not have to tolerate this kind of behavior.

No one should go to work and feel scared, feel uncomfortable, feel like they have to worry about somebody literally grabbing them or pushing them around or pushing them in an office or doing all the kind of things that we’ve been hearing about.

I’m proud of these women who are standing up, who are speaking out, and they need to know that there are a lot of men in the United States that stand with them, stand by them, and will continue to do that. So those of us in power have an obligation to stand with these women as well, who are really standing up and speaking out against the most powerful men in the United States, including the president of the United States.

I believe that the Democratic Party and the leaders in the Democratic Party have handled this a lot better than the Republicans. We acted, maybe not as quickly as I would have liked, but we acted and you still have the Republicans defending, campaigning for perverts that are running for office. Actually sending Republican campaign money and operatives to support a candidate who has acted in ways that nobody could condone.

So they have shown themselves incapable of being able to really get the moral high ground here and try to do what is right. And they did it with President Trump through the campaign, ignoring his behavior, they did it in the last week or so with the race in Alabama. There was not an outcry for Republican members of the House who were settling suits and all the rest. So they have missed an opportunity here to really communicate to the rest of the country that the Republican Party should be a party that doesn’t tolerate this stuff.

The Democrats have acted. It’s not always easy, but the Democrats did the right thing because we want to send a signal that this kind of behavior is not appropriate.

At least 19 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

The president doesn’t take responsibility for any of his actions, so I think it would be foolish of us to think all of a sudden he’s going to have a “come to Jesus” meeting and he’s going to take responsibility for all of the misdeeds that he has been accused of over the course of the last many years. Which is why I think that the Congress of the United States needs to have an investigation looking into the accusations against the president.

These women deserve to be heard. As I said, these women are taking on the most powerful man in the world, and we need to stand by them and let their voice be heard. So if the president isn’t going to act, which of course we know he’s not, the Congress needs to act and provide the kind of oversight and allow these women to be heard and let’s get the truth on all of these matters.

Alabama: The Special Election – Full Episode (HBO)

The Alabama Senate Special Election shouldn’t have even been close. President Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 28 points in the state, and one of the reasons Jeff Sessions was chosen to be Attorney General was because his Senate seat should’ve been easy for the Republican Party to the defend.

But allegations that Judge Roy Moore’s had improper contact with teenage girls changed the race. Both Moore and Democrat candidate Doug Jones tried to keep the race focused inwardly on Alabama—even as both brought in outside help. On the Republican side, Moore had Trump strategist Steve Bannon stump for him. Jones welcomed former Vice President Joe Biden and a slew of African American political leaders. But both seemed to know the same thing: that this race would ultimately be decided by the people of Alabama, on their own terms, for their own reasons.

VICE News teams were on the ground in Alabama to hear from voters about the choice they were facing in the final days and hours before Jones’s knife-edge win.

Grover Norquist Thinks Vaping Will Make The GOP Cool (HBO)

Grover Norquist is a conservative. He is not a vaper. But he thinks vaping could make conservatism cool again.

Norquist is the president of the conservative group Americans for Tax Reform. He thinks vaping could help remake the Republican Party into the party of young people.

His pitch is pretty simple — vapers love to vape, and Democrats are on the side of stricter regulations on vaping and higher taxes on vaping products. Norquist says that when Republicans promise to make vaping easier to do and cheaper, they can win vapers who would normally vote for Democrats.

VICE News took Norquist to a DC vape shop to test his theory.

The GOP ignored its own advice about how to win in 2016

After Mitt Romney’s crushing defeat in 2012, the Republican Party commissioned a self-assessment for how it could retake the White House. The subsequent “GOP autopsy report” called on the GOP to attract minority voters, in particular Hispanics, in order to ever have a chance of winning another presidential election.

Instead, the GOP went in entirely the opposite direction, and four years later, nominated Donald Trump. But there are at least two Republicans still committed to the 2012 vision for the party — one of the authors of the report, Haley Barbour and the new RNC Hispanic Outreach Director, Helen Firre. VICE News sat down with both of them during the week of Trump’s convention to find out whether there is any life left in the autopsy report.
