Hillary Clinton: ‘People Should Go Around Saying Gay All the Time’
'I think people have to stand up to it'
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the average American “should go around saying gay all the time” during her podcast “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton."
Comedian Kate McKinnon said a listener asked:
“What are your thoughts on the state of attack we find on the LGBTQ+ community with Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill passing 22-to-17 and Texas anti-trans agenda.”
“I can’t help but wonder how this plays into the midterm elections?”
"Oh my gosh, well, first off, it is profoundly outrageous and deeply sad that people in positions of power in our country who are more interested in undermining and opposing the rights of individuals than they are in bringing people together.
“I think people have to stand up to it,” Clinton added.
“The idea ‘don’t say gay,’ I think people should go around saying gay all the time.”
“Anything we can do to puncture the hypocrisy and the cruelty that lies behind this, we need to be doing.”
“He mentioned the midterms. Let me just say, please, please turn out and vote.”
“The hypocrites and the hate-mongers win when people don’t vote.”
“Let’s say it now.”
McKinnon and Clinton said: “Gay, gay, gay.”
Clinton’s comments come after she praised President Joe Biden despite the escalating domestic and foreign crises, accusing Democrats of not doing a good enough job of selling his “accomplishments” to the American people.
“From my perspective, President Biden is doing a very good job,” Clinton said of Biden.
“I think his handling of Ukraine, the passage of the American Rescue package, and the huge infrastructure package,” she said.
