Last week, we reported that GOP Chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, proudly boasted last Wednesday in a tweet that the GOP has “doubled our LGBTQ support over the last 4 years, and we will continue to grow our big tent by supporting measures that promote fairness and balance protections for LGBTQ Americans and those with deeply held religious beliefs.”
AZ State Sen Wendy Rogers (R), who is helping to oversee the country’s only forensic 2020 presidential election audit currently underway in Maricopa County, was one of several Republicans critical of the tweet.
Rogers quote tweeted McDaniel and told her to “Stop” and added, “We don’t want men to play on girls’ sports teams and castration of children. Ronna needs to adjust this horrible wrong-headed messaging or resign.”
Rogers’ quote tweet caught the attention of reporter Sam Dorman with Fox News who included it in an article titled, “GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel faces backlash from both sides after celebrating Pride Month.” Sharing a Yahoo reprint of the article by Dorman in a tweet, Rogers suggested that it wasn’t only him who likely saw her response to McDaniel.
“Apparently, I ruffled some feathers at the RNC. I don’t really care what the RNC thinks. They didn’t help me get elected and they are acting more like Democrats every day, anyway,” Rogers said in the tweet.
Rogers explained, “I am doing more for President Trump than they did anyway.”
