Last year, she took to Twitter to use the mass shooting in Odessa, Texas to attack Republicans.
“I love you, TX,” Musgraves wrote. “I can’t believe we all are being forced to live in a constant state of fear. 2nd mass shooting in my home state in a month? Makes me sick to my stomach. When will we live in a world where human lives mean more than money?”

Trump Isn’t Actually Anti-LGBT
While it’s common for leftists like Musgraves to claim that President Trump is anti-LGBTQ, it is just not true. In June, Trump called on leaders from around the world to join him in supporting the decriminalization of homosexuality in countries where it is currently a crime to be gay.
“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions that LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,” Trump said at the time. “My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invites all nations to join us in this effort!”
When Trump nominated Richard Grennell as Ambassador to Germany, he became the first president to ever appoint an openly gay man to this type of position. In a recent campaign ad made by the Log Cabin Republicans, Grennell described Trump as “the strongest ally that gay Americans have ever had in the White House.”
“The fact that I’m gay didn’t even faze Donald Trump,” he added, according to The New York Post.
Some folks disagreed with Musgraves’ comment:
Fuck you @KaceyMusgraves
I love my LGBTQ friends and family.
President Trump is pro-LGBTQ.

Liberals like Musgraves love to shame minorities into voting Democrat with false comments like the one she made about a vote for Trump being an “act of violence” against the LGBTQ community.
She should probably realize that gay people have minds of their own. They don’t need to vote a certain direction simply because of their sexuality.
