Out singer Lance Bass says in a new
interview that he's “very disappointed” with Donald Trump.
Bass told Larry King that Trump, the

“He gave us a couple of jobs. Miss
Teen USA was one of 'NSYNC's first performances back in Louisiana
years ago,” Bass
said. “And then I got to judge again a couple years ago for
him. And he's been very supportive of our career.”
“He's also said he's very supportive
of gays. Do you believe that, or not?” King asked.

he hates gays. I think that he knows how to pander to his audience

“Is he disappointing to you?” King
“Very disappointing,” Bass
answered. “He's disappointing because I know what it is. It's one

bigoted feelings.” “It's scary and sad and I feel like I'm
living in the 1960s,” Bass said.
