Gus Kenworthy burned Trump with a ball culture reference & queer Twitter is here for it

Another day, another tweet by the President.

Trump wrote on Twitter that “the outside world [is] blowing up around us, Paris is burning and China way down.”

He was referring to the French fuel tax protests and how China’s market is slumping.

Gus Kenworthy, who won a silver medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics before coming out as gay, responded: “Accidentally mentioning Paris Is Burning is the closest that Trump has ever gotten to supporting LGBT people.”

Paris Is Burning chronicles the ball culture of New York City in the mid-t0-late 1980s and the black, Latino, transgender, and gay communities involved in it. The documentary tackled problems related to racism, transphobia, homophobia, AIDS and poverty, and introduced the world – and Madonna – to voguing.

LGBT twitter responded to the Kenworthy tweet with a lot of joy and humor. Exactly what we all needed this holiday season!
