Trump nominates openly gay conservative to federal appeals court

From the article:

Bumatay is the second openly gay person Trump has nominated for the federal bench, according to the Washington Blade. The first was Mary Rowland, a magistrate judge who Trump nominated to be on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in June; she is waiting to be confirmed by the Senate.

California’s two senators, both Democrats, Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Kamala Harris, have come out against Bumatay’s nomination.

I thought Trump was supposed to be the notorious homophobe, but it looks like he’s nominated more gays to the federal bench in 2 years than Obama did in 2 terms…
