There is trash, then there is Bryan Eure and Bill White. Two rich Manhattanites who support Trump even in spite of his anti-transgender policies, and on top of that Eure thinks being âtransgender is gross.â
The commercial insurance broker, who was just featured in The New York Times as a gay Trump fan, reportedly made a now-deleted transphobic comment in an Instagram reply to drag queen and activist Marti Gould Cummings.
In his comment, Cummings critiqued Eureâs support for No. 45. âThis is shameful and disgusting,â he wrote. âChelsea didnât wave at you, Hillary didnât take a photo so you jump ship â¦ The incredible privilege you have showâs in this article. You could be using your wealth to help transgender people [whom] Trump is actively discriminating against or you could use it to help families seeking asylum. You are both gross.â
And thatâs when Eure apparently replied with those three hateful words.
Captioning a screenshot of the exchange, Cummings wrote, âHey @euregram you can delete your reply but just to remind people that you posted it â here ya go.â
The Times profiled Eure and his husband, Bill White, as a âliberal coupleâ who became âtwo of New Yorkâs biggest Trump supporters.â The duo, who once hosted a fundraiser for former President Obama and supported Hillary Clinton in the last election, told the newspaper they turned coat on Election Night. With Americaâs decision made, they contended, it was time to âget behindâ the new President. (Never mind that popular vote!)
In the hours since the profile went live, social media users havenât minced their words about Eure and White.
Even New York Times opinion columnist Michelle Goldberg trashed the couple in an op-ed for the newspaper, calling the two menâs support for the current president âshameless, unvarnished thirst.â
âTrump is hardly the first politician to attract self-serving followers,â Goldberg added. âBut Trump is unique as a magnet for grifters, climbers and self-promoters, in part because decent people wonât associate with him.â
