Conservative dating app backed by billionaire Trump ally wants to get back to ‘the right way’

Donald Trump allies are set to launch a conservative dating app, free from gay people, trans folk and pronouns, to get back to “the right way”.

Invite-only dating app The Right Stuff, which launches next month, was “created for conservatives to connect in authentic and meaningful ways” because, of course, “other dating apps have gone woke”.

Now, its website declares, right wing daters can “quit swiping, scrolling and trolling the wrong people”.

In a video announcing the launch, Ryann McEnany, sister of Trump’s former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, said: “We’re sorry that you’ve had to endure years of bad dates and wasted time with people that don’t see the world our way, the right way.”

Undeniably proving that chivalry is not dead, McEnany explained: “For my ladies, you’ll never have to pay because we all get premium subscriptions for simply inviting a couple friends. Gentlemen, if you want access to premium, that’s on you.”

In case there were any LGBTQ+ folk itching to sign up, McEnany made The Right Stuff’s target audience clear: “By the way, those are the only two options: ladies and gentlemen”.

As McEnany is shown building her “creative” and “authentic” dating profile, featuring a photo of herself with Trump, she reassures users that there are “no pronouns necessary”.

The Hinge-style prompts include sharing your “favourite liberal lie” and “a random fact I love about America is…”

According to The Hill, which reported on the dating app while it was still in development, there are several former Trump staffers involved in The Right Stuff.

The dating app was co-founded by John McEntee, personal aide to the former president, and Daniel Huff, White House adviser and Trump appointee in the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The project has been backed by tech billionaire and Trump-loving political activist Peter Thiel.

Huff told The Hill that the app was exclusively heterosexual, but could open up to same-sex couples in the future. He added: “It’s an important, underserved market. Liberals own the education, media corporations, and we can’t let them control our personal relationships.”

As social media responded to the verging-on-parody launch video, one Twitter user pointed out: “At least it’s a place where those idiots can find each other and leave us alone.”
