A Democratic Senator has posted the perfect response to a troll who questioned his sexuality.

Cory Booker, a Democratic Senator for New Jersey, took to Twitter earlier to celebrate National Coming Out Day.

Sharing a Dr Seuss poem, he wrote: “Happy National Coming Out Day!  #LoveIsLove”.

However, one Twitter troll took the pro-LGBT message as ‘proof’ that Booker is secretly gay.

They wrote: “Is @CoryBooker a closet Homosexual HAS NO WIFE, NO GIRLFRIEND, Very very Pro LGBT.”

The user ran a poll asking if Booker “has Sugar in his tank” or “just doesnt like women”.

Seeing the poll, the Senator penned a brilliant reply.

He wrote: “Whatever my sexual orientation, know I love you. I hope u are OK with that. May we both elevate more than denigrate.”

Mr Booker, whose personal life is none of anyone else’s damn business, is a long-time passionate ally of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage.

In 2013, he explained that he “loves” the fact that people aren’t sure about his sexuality.

He told the Washington Post: “People who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia.

“I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, ‘So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I’m straight’.”

Mr Booker conducted New Jersey’s first same-sex marriage ceremonies while Mayor of Newark.

He told the couples: “Tonight we have crossed a barrier. While you all have fallen into love, the truth is the state of New Jersey has risen to love.”
