Michele Bachmann Calls Piers Morgan 'Absolutely Rude' for Suggesting She Judges Gay People: VIDEO


Michele Bachmann is shocked when Piers Morgan suggests that she's judgmental about gays:

"I'm not here as anybody's judge...Well, that's rude. That's absolutely rude....I believe in traditional values. I believe in marriage between a man and a woman but I don't believe that's bigoted."


Jeremy Hooper at Good As You reminds us of her 2004 remarks:

"Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle—we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It’s anything but gay."

  4. First Krazy Kirk, now Krazy Eyes? Piers is definitely rude for allowing such garbage on the show.

    Thank heavens my cable package includes other worthwhile networks to look at, and lets not forget the internet... CNN is becoming less and less relevant. Operation Repo has more ratings than this 'news' network.

    Oh don't worry, Krazy Eyes is being very 'brave' remember? So she should take his questioning as a compliment.

  5. No, Ms. Bachmann, you can NOT have it both ways.

    She is consistently and disturbingly evasive, disingenuous, and lacking in due humility.

  6. Michelle Bachmann? Judge? NO! Never!! "They're going to burn in hell, bless their Satan infested hearts!" was of course meant in a nice way. We should have known.

  7. Well, I think his questioning of Bachmann is very different from Cameron. Bachmann is a member of congress and ex-presidential candidate. She is a law maker, thus I think it is very important for everyone (especially people in her district) to understand just how bigoted she is. She should be called out and often.

  8. It's a very sad life because bigots (she does not even realize she is one)like her make it a sad life by villifying us and depressing us by their words and fear of hell-fire. I feel bad for how her "family" member must have felt after hearing her condescending remarks.

  9. Are "traditional values" knowing that you are gay and as a man and marrying a straight woman just to make it "look right?" Perhaps we need to ask Marcus that question? My buddy just came out of the closet at age 52. He also was married (like Marcus)He is sooo happy now. He has a BF and is in such a better state than what he endured in the closet... Let's face it folks..that nasty closet is lethal...

  10. Piers Morgan has apparently changed the name of his show to "Homophobes Tonight."

    I imagine any minute now we'll be hearing about how "brave" Piers thinks Bachmann is.

  11. F**k this $hit about being rude.

    Let's be rude and call this reptile what she is; judgmental, bigoted, delusional, fascist and a mad bit*h.

    "Rude" is a hell of a lot more honest than the hypocritical posing of this celebrity addict with her barely concealed forked tongue.
    More "rude" , less BS.

  12. Does Piers Morgan interview anybody who is relevant?

    Posted by: Craig | Mar 5, 2012 7:09:07 PM

  13. So when are the Repubs going to talk about the real issues? The economy, the Federal reserve, deficit spending? Anyone, anyone? Obama to win in a landslide. The Repubs have already alienated minorities, gays, women, etc. Not enough bigoted white men left to vote for one of these shills.

  14. He says she JUDGES Gays

    Actually she MARRIES them

  15. If Morgan was sharp instead of a lightweight, he would have had the clip referenced and would have played it for her, the problem with people like Bachmann is that their feet aren't held to the fire when they lie. I will repeat that Morgan is a lightweight.

  16. There are no such thing as "traditional values". There are traditions of which have been broken countless times in history. It used to be the tradition to enslave African Americans and Chinese people. As it was with the tradition of denying women the right to vote, to have their own job and bank account. If Bachmann wants to stick with those traditions she will find herself in prison. The sooner the better.

  17. Michelle needs a new schtick. Everyone who hints that she's anti-gay is "rude." Didn't she use the same line on, who, Leno (or some latenight talker) a few months ago? She needs to just give it a rest and to to Palinville for awhile...no longer relevant, Michelle.

  18. I think women should be seen, not heard...and barefoot and pregnant!! OK, I don't really think that, but I do feel that women, who were oppressed for so centuries, should not be prejudiced towards anything, or anyone. For those women who speak out against anything, their rights should be revoked...see how they like it.

  19. to say somehting's from Satan isn't judgmental?

    Posted by: Daniel Berry, NYC | Mar 5, 2012 7:52:42 PM

  20. and don't you love the idea of public figures talking "Satan" when discussing public policy?

    Posted by: Daniel Berry, NYC | Mar 5, 2012 7:54:41 PM

  21. Michele: "What do you mean, I judge gays? I don't judge gays! Why, I MARRIED one!"

  22. please god make her go away.

  23. "Part of Satan" doesn't even make any sense. It's saying "chunk of bad" or something. So much for eloquence.

    Posted by: Jason 2 | Mar 5, 2012 8:17:28 PM

  24. * Like saying ... so much for my eloquence!

    Posted by: Jason 2 | Mar 5, 2012 8:18:00 PM

  25. why is anyone still interviewing this ignorant
    cow? she has nothing relevant to say. she is
    opposed to gay marriage because she is afraid
    marcus may find a real man and leave her.
