    The Trump White House on Saturday omitted Gauthier Destenay, the husband of Luxembourg prime minister Xavier Bettel, from the caption to an official photograph of the spouses of Nato leaders, taken at this week’s summit in Brussels. Destenay, a Belgian architect, married Bettel in 2015, becoming the first same-sex spouse of a leader of a European Union member state.

    American first lady Melania Trump was identified twice in the caption to the official White House photograph, which was taken by Andrea Hanks and posted to Facebook in a collection of pictures from Trump’s nine-day international tour.

    The caption read: “First Lady Melania Trump poses with Belgium’s Queen Mathilde, center, and other spouses of Nato leaders: First Lady Emine ErdoÄźan of Turkey; Iceland’s Thora Margret Baldvinsdottir; the First Lady of France Brigitte Trogneux; First Lady Melania Trump; Slovenia’s Mojca Stropnik; Bulgaria’s Desislava Radeva; Belgium’s AmĂ©lie Derbaudrenghien, and Norway’s Ingrid Schulerud, during their visit Thursday 25 May 2917 [sic], at the Royal Palace in Brussels.”

It's amazing (or then again, is it?) that the Trump administration thinks they can erase our inclusion without the rest of the civilized world taking notice.

Not to detract from the political angle, but Gauthier Destenay is one handsome gent!

Not to mention the retards here - at a gay porn site - that are pro-Trump and will find any excuse to ignore his administration's homophobia.  Now that's amazing!  Crazy?

At first I thought this was just an honest mistake and that the media was making a big deal out of nothing.  I guess I was wrong.  They made no attempt to correct the error.  The Trump administration hates gays. Everybody says so.

Did you see the date at the end of the caption as well? 
"2917"
There are a bunch of idiots in the White House right now.

The error was fixed a few hours later as is shown here, instead of that link to that libtard news source you posted.

The (gay) man in the photo was the only one of 10 figures initially omitted.  Unintentional?  Christ, you must believe in unicorns and trickle-down economics, as well.   Crazy?
