Do the gays really have love for former President Trump? A new book by Maggie Haberman of The New York Times paints an interesting picture.

As reported by Newsweek, Haberman's book "Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America" delves into the former president's behavior and how he was able to drive his empty confidence to the highest office in the land.

In one particular part of the book, "on page 299," Newsweek reports, Haberman recounts a conversation Trump had with conservative donor and philanthropist Paul Singer. In a sit down, Singer made it clear that he was staunchly conservative on some issues and more moderate on other issues, such as same-sex marriage and gay rights.

After Trump asked Singer if he was indeed gay, he explained that his son is gay, which is what garnered his support for the LGBTQ community.

"Pence began to leave. Trump gestured toward the vice president and said 'you're not like those guys, that kind of conservative?'", the extract from the book reads. He then added, "the gays, they love me," referring to the applause he received in his convention speech after emptily vowing to protect LGBTQ people from oppression.

In true Trump form, the former president took to social media (Truth Social, specifically) and called Haberman a "maggot"

"Maggot Hagerman [sic] of the Unfunded Liability plagued New York Times is my self appointed Biographer, even though she got the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax & the Mueller Report conclusion completely wrong, & refused to write about the FACT that the Democrats spied on my campaign, Lied to Congress, & Cheated and Lied to the FISA Court," Trump wrote.

He continued, "Maggot was also duped on Impeachment Hoax #1 & Impeachment Hoax #2, & said in 2016 that, 'Trump will NOT run for President.' She is a bad writer with very bad sources!"

Despite what he believes, Haberman seems to have struck a ill chord with Trump over the books release, which makes us want to read it even more.
