Trump Dating Site Bans Gays, Allows “Unhappily Married” Members

"Make dating great again."

There’s dating sites for gay guys, Jewish folks, farmers, Christians, and vegans. So we’re not surprised about the launch of a dating site for Trump supporters.

Nauseated, yes. Surprised? No.

Promising to “make dating great again,” Trump.Dating offers to help users find “’the America First’ partner of your dreams,” by sidestepping problematic politics.

While searching for a potential partner on other dating sites, it’s not uncommon to see messages like No Trump supporters or Proud liberal. We’re wrecking the dating game and giving like-minded Americans a chance to meet without the awkwardness that comes with the first conversation about politics. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to already know that your date roots for the same team?

Speaking of rooting for the same team, Trump.Dating is currently only accepting profiles from straight men and women. (For once, we don’t feel left out.) But you don’t have to be single: Options for profiles include divorced, separated, open relationship, “happily married” and “unhappily married.”

Trump.Dating

What about unhappily married and paying off various adult film stars to keep your affair quiet?

Trump.Dating claims that using patriotic and political viewpoints as a foundation of the relationship, “will allow one to focus on what really matters—conversation, commonalities, and if all goes well, courting.”

Courting? Why, sir, you’re making us blush.

It’s not clear if the president is involved or even aware of the existence of Trump.Dating, which is owned by Friends Worldwide, Inc. which includes a portfolio of some 75 diverse dating sites based on personal interests “and unique lifestyle choices.”

In the past, both eHarmony and ChristianMingle have sued into welcoming LGBT members.
