As Trump and Pence turn their hate into policy, they also continue to fill the federal government with some of our most vicious opponents.

Clovis has built his career – as an activist, talk radio host, and failed politician – attacking LGBTQ people and spewing junk science.

We’ve seen this with his cabinet picks, such as Jeff Sessions and Ben Carson, to his Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, to his own Vice President.
