Rival Mocks Cory Booker's Pro-Gay Remarks; 'I Personally Like Being a Guy' — VIDEO


Yesterday U.S. Senate candidate and Newark mayor Cory Booker told the WaPo that it's fine if people speculate that he's gay:

Booker“And people who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia. I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, ‘So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I’m straight.’ ”

The remarks were seized on by Newsmax's Steve Malzberg, who asked his homophobic opponent Steve Lonegan what he thought about the "purposely ambiguous" remarks, Right Wing Watch reports.

Said Lonegan:

It's kind of weird. As a guy, I personally like being a guy. I don't know if you saw the stories last year. They've been out for quite a bit about how he likes to go out at three o'clock in the morning for a manicure and a pedicure....Maybe that helps to get him the gay vote by acting ambiguous...I don't like going out in the middle of the night, or any time of the day, for a manicure and pedicure. It was described as his peculiar fetish. I have a more peculiar fetish. I like a good Scotch and a cigar. That's my fetish but we'll just compare the two."

  2. Malzberg's hairpiece doesn't look very convincing.

  5. He looks like every tired politician that you've ever seen. A face like a slapped pussy and a bad rug. Add stupid entitled remarks and Im pretty sure he doesn't stand a chance against Booker.

  6. So Numbnuts thinks that gay guys don't like 'being a guy'?! WTF does he think, our entire gender changes when we admit to being gay? Ready for this election to be over so we don't have to hear from this doofus EVER again.

  9. What is this foolish vestige of Freudianism, that gay men don't like being men? I'd bet that gay men, could a proper survey be conducted, like being men way more than straight guys. Straight guys, I think, have little idea how much they're expected to hate manhood, and do so reflexively. This accounts, in fact, for much of their distrust/dislike of women.

  11. Yes, hes awful and we can't wait for this election to be over, BUT it seems like its never really over anymore. As soon as its done we will be talking about next years group and that will be a whole new bag of a$sholes.

  12. Oh, girl, put down the Scotch and cigar and look in the mirror! Brit with a bad wig and fondness for clotted cream staring right back at you.

  13. "Vote for me because I prefer poisioning myself over basic grooming!"

  16. Wait just a minute! *I* like scotch and a good cigar. And *I* don't go out in the middle of the night for a pedicure.

    That must mean...(GASP)...Lonegan's a big ol' homo!

  17. I would f*ck Booker in .002 seconds or less. I wouldn't go anywhere near that fat-ass loser.

    So, really, what's the real problem here?

    As always, it's always the guy whom no guy wants that makes the most fuss about guys hooking up with other guys.

    Go figure.

  18. He's pathetic. I am not one of those gays trying to wish everybody out of the closet; however, Cory Booker has always set off my gaydar. Years ago I watched a fascinating documentary when he first ran for Mayor, and I was convinced. With whomever he sleeps, he's impressive.

  19. Cory Booker needs to come out of the closet.

    Whether he is straight (LOL) or gay.

    It does him no favours to be skirting around the issue of his sexuality in the manner that he is doing.

    In an ideal world it should not matter what he is.

    But this is not an ideal world, and people do not trust people who cannot answer a simple question honestly.

  20. I spotted a minor typo in the headline...


    You're welcome.

  21. So one of Lonegan's "fetishes" is a cigar. I guess sometimes a cigar isn't JUST a cigar, huh?

    Putting their respective (claimed) sexual orientations aside, Lonegan would do much better NOT to go head to head with Booker in a competition of masculinity.

    Seriously, what the hell was he thinking? Is some of the arsenic in his old-school rug leaking into his brain?

  22. Interesting to note: Lonegan is legally blind. Apparently, legally stupid, too.

  23. lol, rolling on floor laughing at this homophobe's definition at what makes a man a man............

  24. Uhm... does this asshat realize that there's a HUGE gay fetish thing that centers around cigars? Whole entire groups of guys that enjoy cigar sex?

    Such an idiot...

  25. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
