Trump Likens Gays to Long Putters

(NEW YORK) May 3, 2011 — It can’t get much weirder for Donald Trump, who likens homosexuality to using a long putter in golf.

Trump, 64, said he isn’t opposed to homosexuality but he is opposed to gay marriage.

“It’s like in golf,” Trump told The New York Times.  “A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”
