Anderson Cooper breaks out a"Let's talk about the facts tonight, the facts about this White House and those close to it and ties to Russia," CNN's Anderson Cooper said Tuesday night.

As The Washington Blade first noted, no U.S. census or American Community Survey ― a yearly effort that tracks population demographics ― has ever included questions about sexual orientation or gender identity. Same-sex unmarried partners were first tallied by the census in 1990, but there has never been a...
