Leftists are waving their arms with cries of "homophobia" after President Trump praised Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, for teaching at a Christian school that promotes biblical sexual morality.
"I’ve gotten to know Karen so well," the president said, according to NBC News. "She is a Marine Corps mom, a tremendous woman, a proud supporter of military families, and she just recently went back to teaching art classes at a Christian school. Thank you, thank you, Karen. Terrific woman."

For praising Karen Pence's line of work, the LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD denounced the president's comments as "disturbing."
"It’s disturbing that @SecondLady and @realDonaldTrump would put their stamp of approval on an institution that actively targets LGBTQ students," GLAAD said in a tweet.
