Watch: Is the Conservative-backed Grindr-like App 'The Right Stuff' All Wrong?

Are you a right-wing Republican who dreams of finding a partner that is just as committed to Trumpism ... er ... conservative values as you? Just in time for cuffing season, there's a new app for that entering the U.S. market.

As reported by The Guardian, The Right Stuff is a dating app catering exclusively to conservative values and kinships. Backed by gay conservative tech billionaire Peter Thiel to the tune of $1.5 million, the app is invite-only and recently dropped a very telling promo last week, The Hill reports.

Featuring Ryann McEnany, the younger sister of former White House press secretary Kayleigh, the best thing about the app is its invite-only, according to her.

"So not just anyone can join," McEnany explained. And if the photos shown in the promo are any indication, anyone might refer to people of color.

The app is due to launch in September, and "ladies" receive a free premium account if they invite their friends. "Gentlemen" have to pay full price. And, according to the app, those are the only two pronouns users are allowed.

"The Right Stuff is all about getting into the right dating pool, for people who share the same values and beliefs as you," says McEnany. "You'll start off by building your perfect profile — no pronouns necessary."

She added, "We want you to put your best foot forward which includes your favorite photos of yourself doing what you love or being with the people you love." A photo of McEnany with former President Trump displayed during this.

Profile prompts users can look forward to include, "A random fact I love about America is ..." and "Favorite liberal lie ... ."

It all seems very on brand.

"We're sorry that you've had to endure years of bad dates and wasted time with people that don't see the world our way — the right way," McEnany.

Yeah, right. See the promo for the app below.
