Donald Trump Not Thrilled About Michael Sam Kissing His Boyfriend
For those out there dying to know what real estate tycoon Donald Trump thinks about Michael Sam, the Huffington Post reports today that the comb-over queen is not thrilled about the kiss the gay athlete planted on his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano.
