Robby Starbuck wrote in response to the revelation “Hey Andrew Gillum, it’s not that you’re bisexual that’s the problem. It’s the male escorts and crystal meth in a hotel room that’s the problem.”

He added “Trying to use being bisexual to distract from what you did is a pretty gross way to use the gay community. Typical Democrat.”

Later in the interview, Gillum told Hall “Everyone believes the absolute worst about that day. At this stage, I don’t have anything else to have to conceal. I literally got broken down to my most bare place, to the place where I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to live. Not because of what I had done but because of everything that was being said about me.”

He added “What was most hurtful was this belief that I was somehow living a lie in my marriage and in my family. That was the most hurtful to me. Because I believe we are all entitled to mistakes, and I believe we are entitled to those mistakes without having every other respectable and redeeming part of our lives invalidated.”
