It’s not going to shock anyone that Donald Trump said yet another dumb thing at a rally, but this time, his invitation for the public to ‘ask the gays’ who they’re voting for has sparked the best series of gif-responses ever. ‘The gays’ have effectively Bye Felicia’d Trump, and we are living for it.
Donald Trump, 69, claimed that he’s a better ally to the LGBT community than Hillary Clinton, 68, while at a rally in Atlanta, Georgia on June 15, and yes, it was hard to write that with a straight face. He challenged voters to “ask the gays what they think”, and naturally, the Internet went wild. Check out the best Twitter reactions right here!
Here’s what Trump said, and you can’t make this stuff up: “Ask the gays what they think and what they do, in, not only Saudi Arabia, but many of these countries, and then you tell me: Who’s your friend, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?” (Say it with us: Oh. My. God.)

Well, “the gays” answered, and they are not here for Trump’s bigotry. Here are the best gif responses, our favorites of which involve Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development:

Of course, this isn’t even the most insulting thing Trump has said this week. In the wake of the Orlando tragedy, The Donald took to social media to make it all about him, tweeting that he “appreciate[s] the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism” on June 12. “I don’t want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!” He also unsurpisingly took aim at Barack Obama: “Is President Obama going to finally mention the words radical Islamic terrorism? If he doesn’t he should immediately resign in disgrace!” Not his most original.
