Speaking on his radio show, Limbaugh said:
“And today, there are – these are, what would you call, girl-on-girl – I think is the, yes – nude, girl-on-girl photos with Melania and other women. I think this probably might wrap up the LGBT vote for Trump.”

Think Progress reports:
“The Republican nominee, despite paying lip service to LGBTQ victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting during the Republican National Convention, hasn’t indicated he will actually stand up the rights of LGBTQ people in any meaningful way. As Nico Lang wrote in Salon, Trump’s statements indicate his positions fall in line with previous Republican nominees for president. He is on record saying he would “strongly consider” appointing justices to the U.S. Supreme Court who would overturn same-sex marriage. And although Trump has tepidly indicated he doesn’t support workplace discrimination against LGBT people, he hasn’t answered direct questions on whether he supports legislation that bans discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace.
It strains credulity to believe that pervasive sexual harassment and violence against queer women would be eradicated or even addressed at all under a Trump administration. He is still defending former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes even after several female colleagues at the network accused him of sexual harassment, and recently remarked that his daughter should simply find work elsewhere if she were harassed by her boss. Trump also continues to perpetuate the homophobic trope that lesbians would leave their girlfriends for a man if they were able to, as Samantha Allen pointed out in The Daily Beast.”
