While Democrats have attempted to paint Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump as homophobic and intolerant, recently leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee revealed staffers had some less than LGBT-friendly comments of their own.

Multiple DNC employees engaged in email exchanges in what many might perceive as derogatory comments about the demographic.

“Are we back to the point I can say I love you? Because I’d like to. No more cash bar at the wedding!” DNC Finance Chair Zachary Allen wrote to National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan in a May 20 email.

Kaplan then responded, “I love you too. No homo. Phew.”

In another email sent by Kaplan, this time with DNC finance Chief of Staff Scott Comer, he speculated on political operative Doug Hathaway’s sexual orientation.

“Doug Hathaway is definitely gay. He swims for the gay and lesbian team in DC,” he wrote to Allen.

“Totes. He gives me daddy vibes.” Comer wrote back.

The massive email dump, published on Wikileaks, took place just days ahead of the Democratic National Convention. In the wake of multiple emails showing the committee was conspiring against former Democratic presidential hopeful, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepped down from her post.
