Richard Grenell, who recently left his cabinet post as the acting Director of National Intelligence, will now be working for the Republican National Committee as a senior adviser to focus on LGBT voter outreach, according to a Fox News exclusive.
“As America’s first openly-gay cabinet member, I can confidently say that President Trump has done more for gay and lesbian Americans than any other president, and it is not even close,” Grenell told Fox News.
Just before the announcement, Grenell was featured in a video released Thursday promoting President Trumps as the “most pro-gay President in American history.” In the video, Grenell slams the record of 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who “as a United States Senator… said gay people couldn’t receive security clearances because we would be a security risk.”
“Joe must have been terrified when Donald Trump appointed me as acting Director of National Intelligence,” Grenell said in the Log Cabin Republicans’ video. “The fact that I’m gay didn’t even phase Donald Trump. Joe Biden certainly didn’t congratulate the appointment or even acknowledge it, but his silence was defeaning.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
