President Trump has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the upcoming Values Voters Summit in D.C. hosted by the anti-LGBT Family Research Council, marking the first-time ever a sitting U.S. president has spoken at the annual event.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, announced late Tuesday in a statement Trump would speak on Friday at the conference, which is taking place over the weekend at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.

"Values voters have waited eight years for a leader who puts America's mission first and respects the values that made America into a great nation," Perkins said. "Values voters are coming to our nation's capital thankful to hear from a president who is fulfilling the promises that he campaigned on. Since the early days of the campaign, President Trump allied himself with values voters, promising to put an end to the 8 years of relentless assault on the First Amendment."

Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), RSC Chairman Mark Walker (R-N.C.), "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and former White House aide Sebastian Gorka.

I guess freedom of your own thought are verboten unless you take the liberal program stance. Elections have consequences.

This is America, these bigots have the right to say whatever they want, as I do ... and I call it like I see it -- a convention of homophobic nematodes.

"President Donald Trump ran for office claiming he would support the LGBT community and protect them from the terrorism seen at the Pulse Night Club in 2016. Since then, Trump has rolled back LGBT protections in Obamacare, he's banned transgender soldiers from serving in the U.S. armed forces and has hired openly homophobic political leaders to his cabinet."

Speaking of a "relentless assault on the First Amendment" see e.g. Donald Trump, "open up libel laws," "fake news," "look at broadcast licenses" ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

watching right wingers defend their hatred by saying they have the right, but whine when other people use their same rights to call them stool samples, is the most pathetic weeny thing ever.

Yep, he is doing that:

First time I have ever seen a POTUS being a keynote speaker for a hate group.

Let that sink in.

Good job GOP, when everyone thinks you have hit rock bottom you shout out "Hold me beer!" and grab a shovel.
