Mateen’s ‘Gay Lover’ Steps Forward, Right on Cue

There it is. I predicted that Omar Mateen’s gay lover would show up and claim the shooting was something other than an act of Islamic terror inspired by the man’s allegiance to ISIS. The Obama administration and the left-leaning press have tried to bury the story, even to the point of redacting the 911 transcript before being pressured to release the whole thing.

Now Univision has reported that “Miguel” claimed to have met Mateen on the gay hookup app “Grindr.”

“I’ve cried like you have no idea,” the man told Univision News anchor Maria Elena Salinas. “But the thing that makes me want to tell the truth is that he didn’t do it for terrorism. In my opinion he did it for revenge.”

Of course, this story will be believed without any skepticism by the left. It supports their narrative, so it has to be true.

Miguel described their relationship as “friends with benefits,” and said that Mateen was “100 percent” gay, Univision reported. He said he was shocked to hear Mateen was the shooter, and described him as “affectionate” and “sweet.” Mateen loved to be cuddled, Miguel added.

He also told Univision that Mateen’s rage about Puerto Rican gay men might have stemmed from a sexual incident in which Mateen had sex with two Puerto Rican men, one of whom later revealed that he was HIV positive.

I suppose the Feds know if there’s any hint of veracity to this story–the FBI confirms they’ve interviewed “Miguel.” We won’t be hearing from them on it though, because it’s an active investigation. If Mateen’s autopsy shows he was HIV positive, then I’ll believe it. Otherwise, this is simply a story–one man’s word against a dead man.

It would also be helpful if Mateen’s missing wife were found, you know, to shed some light on this, and if the Department of Justice actually cared. They would rather let the media run with the gay story.
