Daily Show's Samantha Bee Tries Diplomacy with Russian Official Over Anti-Gay Laws: VIDEO


The Daily Show's Samantha Bee sits down with Andranik Migranyan, who heads a Kremlin-approved policy group, to try to work out Russia's diplomatic issues with the United States.

After getting nowhere with Edward Snowden, Bee moves on to the ban on "gay propaganda". Migranyan insists that Russia does not criminalize homosexuality. They just don't want gays to flaunt it, which prompts Bee to trot out some beefcake photos of Vladmir Putin:

"Come on...the guy looks like a gay centaur. This guy right here is one glitter cannon away from leading our Gay PRide parade."

  1. Beefcake? You think a fat bald man riding a horse is beefcake?

  2. So now any man who chooses to go shirtless is being deemed gay? Who is this smug, annoying woman and why is she making jokes about the 200,000 dead Iraqis courtesy of the illegal US attack, invasion and occupation of their country.

  4. Yes, any leader who postures shirtless on horseback in front of a pack of journalists for political purposes is FUNDAMENTALLY LAUGHABLE.

  5. Yeah, it's "beefcake" in its purest sense. These posed propaganda photos of Putin riding horses, practicing karate, catching fish, etc. are intended to convey his masculine virility.

  6. Just like Mussolini: chopping down trees, playing the violin, rock-climbing bare-chested, endless stories about his hundreds of affairs.

    Standard fascist posturing.
