Joe Biden recently announced U.S. senator Kamala Harris as his running mate in the upcoming presidential election. Many people mentioned that she became the first Asian American and the first Black female to be on a major presidential ticket.
However, it isn’t enough for opponents. Gay former Trump adviser Richard Grenell accused the Democratic presidential nominee of homophobia for choosing a straight running mate.
Grenell speaks against
Who is Richard Grenell? The man was the U.S. Ambassador to Germany from 2018 to 2020, and he served as an acting director of national intelligence in the Trump Cabinet. Therefore, he is the first openly gay person in such a high-profile position.
On social media, the Trump official blamed Biden for assuming that it is risky to recruit gays. He says no lesbians and gays were even considered for the position. However, these allegations don’t seem to be credible. It is hard to believe it regarding how comfortable Biden appears to be among LGBTQ people.
Moreover, Biden’s also confirmed just a while ago that a lesbian adviser would work as Harris’s chief manager of staff.
