Trump appoints Gary Bauer to religious freedom commission

How stupid is this?

Gary Bauer is a longtime right-wing activist from Newport, Kentucky, who made a brief presidential run some years back. The Newport school system required students to attend one of his rallies.

Bauer has a history of saying bigoted things - particularly about gays, Muslims, and the poor.

Guess what? Dictator Trump has just appointed Bauer to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Let this sink in for a moment. A man who wants to deny religious freedom has just been appointed to a religious freedom committee.

This is like appointing a member of the Campbell County Tea Party as drug czar.
