Mitt Romney Does 'Gay Voice', Asks for the Pink Tie: VIDEO


Gawker got this clip of what Buzzfeed calls Mitt's "best gay-guy impression" from their 'FOX News mole', and called a Hollywood voice expert to get an opinion:

"I would say he is doing his impersonation of an effeminate man. I think it was his attempt at being funny. My advice to him is he shouldn't give up his day job."


Is it any surprise that the Republican field gets uncomfy around pink?

  1. Romney IS a homophobe, he gave $10,000.00 to NOM. Doesn't surprise me in the least that he'd mock gays like this.

  2. He SHOULD give up his day job.

  4. Not much to pin on a man whose rhetoric, pledge signing and personal contributions to hate groups prove beyond doubt that he's a gay-hating bigot.

  5. This just proves what I've thought...he is a anti-gay bigot. One of the biggest assholes in the history of American politics. Naturally, GOProud will endorse him.

  6. Why must people stereotype us gay men? I am neither effeminate nor a fan of pink, so what is it then that defines my human instinct to be gay? "Gay" is not about mannerisms for there are many effeminate straights as well as (mostly) masculine gay men.

  7. This disgusts me.

  8. And yet, that is quite the pastel lavender tie he's wearing...how Aaron Shock of him.

  9. And yet, if a gay man had used his exaggerated "gay voice" to select a pink tie, we would have simply laughed at his silliness. But feel free to ascribe a sinister attitude to Romney since we all hate him anyway, so by all means use this to reinforce your hatred. Of course, Rick Santorum would have refused to wear a pink tie.

  10. When a Presidential candidate espouses anti-gay policies across the board, and donates $10,000 to an anti-gay hate group, and then pulls THIS crap, damn right I'll hate him. I refuse to apologize for finding this incredibly offensive.

  11. what an a$$hole !

    @POINTED : I too am neither any kind of feminine nor do I disrespect guys who are.

    And i would beat the $hit out of anyone who treats ust with such mocking tone.
    Phuck this neanderthal compromised delusional idiot.

  12. I have to agree with Bierce. If Romney were to prove he was PRO-GAY, and not surreptitiously pro-DOMA, this would be nothing more than silly, but...I'm not so sure now.

    A hateful man? C'mon. Of course not. But ignorant, stupid, stubborn, misinformed, ugly, damaging, hurtful and above all, GULLIBLE (he's a big Mormon - part of a weird, strange cult) - yes.

    Oh, and BTW, remember the cheers Bradley Cooper got on this site more than once? (look it up). And no mention that he was a star in the film Hangover 2, which uses the term "f@g**t" to call someone perjoratively, in what was supposed to be a HILARIOUS, jocular-guy way.
    Soooo funny! Not.

  15. He's an all-around jerk. He put his dog in a cage on top of the car for a vacation trip.

  16. It is no big deal. Please no knee jerk hysterical reactions. Keep your eye on the ball: holding the White House, increasing the number of dems in the Senate and recapturing the House.Vote democrat at every level, contribute $ to democratic campaigns, volunteer to work in democratic campaigns. The dems need advertising money. The Koch bros and their ilk are going to spend millions trying to convince America that Obama and the dems are the anti-christ.

  17. Shouldn't give up his day job?

    He doesn't work! He hasn't had a job for how long?

    He should STAY unemployed...and sit in his basement in his underwear playing World of Xenophobia on his Xbox.

  18. The related story, that GAWKER has a mole in Ailes/Murdoch Faux News land is more important IMHO. Knowing how News Corp. operates I suspect the mole is a double-agent unless something truly embarrassing leaks from that den of iniquity.

  21. People reveal their souls not when they are in front of a public audience, but when they are in private among friends and fellow congregation members. Too bad at least four members of Romney's congregation ratted on him:


    Yeah, that right. He was repulsed that there were reports of homosexual activity in his Massachusetts Mormon congregation, and he told his cozy little private gathering that being gay is "perverse" and "reprehensible." I actually thought those adjectives were a fair description of Mormonism. According to informants in his congregation, Romney continued his anti-gay tirade for quite some time, speaking at great length on the topic of his hate and loathing. Then he got pissed off because the incident leaked out and was reported in the Boston Globe. What a complete asswipe.

  22. Oh, please, at least Romney has a sense of humor. Obama doesn't have any humor.

    I'd much rather a Romney with an honest humor than an Obama with a fake advocacy for our causes. Think about it.

    Posted by: bryce | Apr 10, 2012 9:28:54 PM

  23. @Bryce: I have thought about it and I am voting for Mr Obama.

    Posted by: jack | Apr 10, 2012 10:06:13 PM

  24. I don't vote for a president because of their sense of humor. I vote based upon what their service to the country is likely to entail. Romney openly admits to wanting to put religion above all other concerns, has clearly stated that he will work to take away every right gays have fought to get and to do what ever is in the best interest of the rich with zero concern for anyone else. But hey, at least he has a sophomoric sense of humor, right?
