A senior White House official told reporters that the attendees of President Joe Biden’s signing of an Executive Order to “expand” LGBTQI+ rights “represent the best of America.”
“They are diverse, passionate advocates who are fighting to ensure that the promise of freedom and equality is made real for all,” the White House official said.
And, individuals who are pushing “anti-LGBTQI+” bills are bullies.
“President Biden always stands up to bullies,” the White House official said. “And that’s what these extreme MAGA laws and policies do — they bully kids. Hateful, discriminatory laws that target children are out of line with where the American people are. And President Biden is going to use his executive authority to protect kids and families.”
When asked about state laws that are “against LGBTQ youth,” according to Chris Johnston at The Washington Blade, the senior White House official said they’re unsure how states will respond, but are focused on responding to “un-American policies” being pushed through state legislatures.
“They’re going after kids,” the senior White House official said. “They’re going after families just because of who they are.”
