The View Takes On Homophobic Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Cuccinelli: VIDEO


Towleroad has already reported on Virginia State Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, and his extensive history of ignorant and homophobic remarks. Luckily, Cuccinelli's comments have not gone unnoticed by members of the media, and have received extensive criticism from news pundits and entertainers alike. 

This morning, the ladies of The View joined the growing list of media personalities criticizing Cuccinelli and his outdated rhetoric. After congratulating Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson on his recent marriage, co-host Whoopi Goldberg quickly outlined the Virginia AG's goal to reinstate a "Crimes Against Nature Law," which would make such acts as oral and anal sex between consenting adults a felony. "Why are you in my bedroom? Get out!" shouted Goldberg, a long time supporter of LGBT rights. Barbara Walters added, "What he does is he automatically equates oral sex with homosexuality." "Well then I'm gayer than a gay 2 dollar bill..." added Sherri Shepherd, a co-host who hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with LGBT rights advocates. Joy Behar had perhaps the most amusing quip to offer: “he wants the government on my back and my husband off of it.”

  2. "crime against natural law" Don't these know what natural law is? Natural=it happens in nature. Believe me this happens in almost every species there is. What is more natural than that.

  4. Hmmm...$2 bills are legal tender. I want to have some sort of comment about legal recognition of gays (since the phrase is "queer as a three-dollar-bill"), but it isn't working.

  7. he's Kinsey-6 homosexual, that's why he wants this law; it's easier to pretend you're a happily married heterosexual, when you're a really closeted homo, by putting a law in place that protects you from having to go down on your wife.

  8. I think Cucci Meant to say "The Doctrine of Natural law" as per the Vatican Inquisition;
    dishonest slight of phrase, by a Vatican butt boy. It has very little to do with nature,
    this is the same lot who for hundreds of years denied the sun was at the center of the solar system its only 50 years since they admitted they were wrong and Galileo Galilei was right all along.
    Do you really want the Vatican in YOUR bedroom and in your doctors office.
    Reality is this Cucci fool wants Vatican law enshrined in the laws of Virginia.
    If you value your freedom boot this guy.

  9. Some people just desperately need a dominatrix to settle down their twisted souls and you gotta know Kenny Cuccinelli is one of them.

  11. Whoopi's bigger than Sherry now?

  12. Sherri is also conflicted about homosexuality because of what the bible tells her.

  13. So, Cucci-Cucci is in league with Communists and Third-World Dictators? How unamerican of him. Get DHS on him and throw him in Guantanamo and show him what he's been missing/hoping for.

  14. Doesn't Sheri Shepherd know that $2 bills aren't gay they're quite normal. Now $3 bills... well that's another matter entirely.

  15. Oh Kenny, the world is passing you by. While you try to appeal to the prejudices of the folks in Va, they are telling you that they have moved on. From intolerance to acceptance. You are going to look like George Wallace and Lester Maddox in the history books. How sad your grandchildren will feel.

  16. All 4 of those ladies pwned his cracker butt.

    I've had my eye on this character for a while, he spouts plenty of Jesus-flavored hatred. It was nice to hear him be put in his place.

  17. I cannot wait for a citizen or political opponent to ask Mr. Cucinelli, in front of a large audience, point blank: "Sir, have you ever had oral sex?" And watch Ken squirm, stammer, turn bright red, and try and talk his way out of that one ... He will be exposed as either a hypocrite or a prude, neither of which is very appealing to voters.

  19. Cucchinelli, what a total ass.
    What the hell goes on in this guys head that he thinks he can criminalize oral sex? Even str8 oral!!! WTF? This is the bright shining hope for the newly rebranded GOP?
