Today’s the first day of Pride Month, and the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See isn’t wasting any time celebrating:

What a great use of the Embassy’s time and resources.

Just what we want the diplomatic corps to do, right? Shoving a stick in the eye of the Vatican. https://t.co/FQzpcFEBNl

Would be nice if we had some Catholics at the US embassy to the Holy See https://t.co/U0WzW0Tc1a

Well, we ostensibly have a Catholic in the White House …
Even though you're not meaningfully Catholic, why unnecessarily piss off an ally? https://t.co/jOrzGae7vV

Because they know they won’t get burned to the ground in the Holy See. They can’t say that about some other U.S. Embassy locations.
Gonna do the same in the Middle East?

Anyone have any pictures of the embassies throughout the Middle East flying the rainbow flag this month? https://t.co/5UduD0Rcpd

Ah. Gotcha. Will the US embassies in the Middle East be doing the same? https://t.co/X0P1dzWTdX

Will the US also fly the rainbow flag at its Saudi and Pakistani embassies or do they only virtue signal where no one will respond to their PR stunt?

Call it a just a hunch, but I don’t think you will see this from our embassy in Saudi Arabia https://t.co/CNPa4bIS8c

Sends a pretty strong message that they feel empowered enough to do this in the Vatican but not at our embassy in Riyadh https://t.co/ZSYya2Ro8C
