Tiffany Trump's rambling comments at a Pride Rally in Florida this past weekend has elicited much social media comment with many questioning her sobriety.

Vanity Fair was blunt with a headline that read, "Tiffany Trump's Pride Speech Is a 10-Minute-Long Train Wreck."

"The event, which was held Saturday and co-hosted by Richard Grennell — the current Republican National Committee advisor — was one of Tiffany Trump's first solo outings for her father's 2020 re-election campaign," writes USA Today.

"I know what my father believes in. Prior to politics, he supported gays, lesbians, the LGBQIIA+ community," she said at the event to the cheers of the two dozen or so in the audience (who included her mother Marla Maples).

"Tiffany, wearing a pink bandage dress, danced out onstage to the Black Eyed Peas' 'I've Got a Feeling' to a cheering crowd... of about a dozen supporters in red MAGA caps," writes the website Hollywood Life.

"The response to Tiffany Trump's speech was swift," USA Today reports. "Santiago Mayer, the executive director of voting outreach group Voters of Tomorrow, called her 'an entitled rich white girl who wants to pretend she knows (what) she's talking about.'"

Though as reported earlier in the week, it is what she didn't say that has brought her much criticism was her use of the acronym LGBQIIA+ to describe the queer community, leaving the out the "T," which represents the trans community.

The omission, Vanity Fair, adds was likely on purpose since she repeated it in an interview at the event.
