GOP Lt. Governor candidate Stephanie Trussell, Darren Bailey’s running mate, is in hot water of her own for past comments on social media.
WGN-TV reporter Tahman Bradley uncovered many tweets on Trussell’s personal account and Facebook posts. Tweets going back years refer to Planned Parenthood as “Klanned Parenthood” and use LGBTQXYZ, a derogatory acronym for the LGBTQ community used in right-wing social media.
WGN also included Facebook posts such as this one about Billy Porter in a recent Cinderella movie.
“Just say no! The LGBTQXYZ agenda is aggressively trying to repurpose classic stories and films. How can a godmother be genderless? Satan is a liar!” Trussell posted in 2020 about actor Billy Porter playing a genderless fairy godmother.
