Anderson Cooper Calls Out Michele Bachmann For Question Dodging

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikAnderson CooperMichele Bachmann

Once again, Anderson Cooper is calling out someone who isn't being straight forward and dodging the reality of a situation.

That person is Michele Bachmann, who is (if you didn't know) , running for the presidency of the United States.

And that's how someone who is running for the presidency of the United State answers questions: they talk about running for the presidency of the United States.

Did we mention she's running for the presidency of the United States?

Apparently she thinks gay rights aren't important and the whole thing is just a "fringe" issue, that nobody really cares about. But in reality, it's a huge issue amongst all the other huge issues, and blatantly dodging the question with a canned response just looks ridiculous and insulting.

Own up to your past comments of ignorance, Michele. You aren't fooling anyone.

Props to Anderson for calling it like he sees it. Also, for being super handsome.

EQUALITY FOR ALL!

    Hi. Every politician dodges questions. Get on with your celebrity (read: NOT POLITICAL) gossip. K. Thanks. Bye.



  2. 2

    This woman is a fucking bitch and a 1/2. I don't think people will vote for her she is a dumb whore slut. She kind of looks like a tranny too an ugly hot mess tranny. I bet she has a big dick too.



  3. 3

    She isn't "dodging" questions. She doesn't know the answers to them, so she is choosing to focus on the sound bites that will best confuse her ignorant Tea bagger, um Tea Party followers. She's Palin-lite only without the folksy charm.

    I hate when politicians dodge questions like that. Have some backbone and at least stand for your beliefs however stupid they may be.



  6. 6

    People are running for president of the united states but yet they are getting asked and grilled about an irrelevant minority..No wonder we are in the giant hole we are in. People on focused on stupid shit.



  7. 7

    Seriously Perez, we all know you can't stand her by the amount of posts you make on her every day………NEXT!!!!!!!!



  8. 8

    Well if you don't like "irrelevant minorities", get off the site of one and go shit in your hand.



  9. 9

    This woman scares the crap out of me. If she's ever elected, we'll see the resurrection of the KKK loud and proud in America, and gays will be shot on site. Don't ever give this "thing" the time of day, or send her a single dollar for her candidacy (or as she calls it "the running of the Presidency of the United States". She's a wolf in sheeps clothing.

    Anderson Cooper stole that technique from Bill Oreilly.



  11. 11

    To be fair, Don Lemon already got onto her for this; he rules! :)

    Inconsistency doesn't give voters confidence. I don't care which she believes, but Anderson has illustrated that this inconsistency in her positions comes off as dodgy.



  13. 13

    I personally want journalists to focus on the economy,jobs,over spending and the debt issues. Maybe Anderson and the rest of the lame stream media aren't knowledgeable about economics so therefore they avoid the subject and stick to sensational issues they are familiar with such as gay rights.



  14. 14

    Geezas….at least she didn't throw the blame onto someone else like the so called President does……



  15. 15

    This women is a fool and a idiot…does anyone really believe half of what she says? So what she win the Iowa Straw Poll…the turn out for the voting was low and Iowa does not speak for all of the great USA….



  16. 16

    Re: NookiesWA – When it pays taxes no minority is irrelevant. You want it to be, but reality doesn't change because of what pathetic bigot such as you wants.



  17. 17

    Mario, she won't get elected, so you need to get off this woman. You're lazy and like easy prey because you think it furthers your cause. It does not. You've gone beyond tiresome, and your obsession is actually pretty troubling. You need to let it go and move on, because you're looking like a fool (a bigger one than usual).

    How come all other laws regarding marriage are left to the state? Who is eligible for a marriage license, requirements to get a marriage license, whether or not common law marriages are recognized, age at which marriage is permitted, laws regarding divorce, etc. are left to individual states to decide upon. Marriage is an issue for state government. I could give a shit if gays can marry or not, but petition governors in individual state and stop wasting the federal government's time. It would be unconstitutional and without the backing of Supreme Court case law for Obama or anyone else to pass federal law regarding marriage. Well into the 20th century laws regarding interracial marriage were variable by state, just as gay marriage laws are now. Gays are going about this all wrong.

    Re: La Garse
    Why are you so obsessed with a fool La Farce? You need to move on yourself.



  20. 20

    The gay agenda ISN'T a big issue. The election will be determined by the economy first and the ongoing war in Afghanistan second. No one cares about gays except gays. Get over it, Mario.



  21. 21

    I would dearly LOVE to see Anderson Cooper interview that psycho, but why? She'd only keep repeating "I'm running for President of the United States. I have no opinions any longer". Assuming she showed up at all.



  22. 22

    we know you hate her and will be slagging her daily. after all she believes in family and shes christian. so you hate her with all your soul…..



  23. 23

    Re: La Garse – La Garse, you've gone beyond tiresome, and your obsession with perez is actually pretty troubling. You need to let it go and move on, because you're looking like a fool (a bigger one than usual).

    Re: yumba1

    I personally would like for your straight rights to be revoked.



  26. 26

    Re: bobo99 – she only believes in one type of family. she doesn't believe in single parent families, she doesn't believe in families that have parents that are the same sex, in fact she signed the "Marriage Vow" asserting among other things that slaves benefitted from stronger families than African-Americans have today; and that any claims there is a genetic basis for homosexuality are "anti-scientific." and yes we all know she's a christian, how can we forget since she's shoved it down out throats so many times, in fact she said it was God who told her to run for president. (must have been a slow day for god to be so concerned about bachmann's political career) it's easy to understand why perez would be disgusted with this woman, but what i can't understand is why someone would support her. can you fill me in?



  27. 27

    I love how she says gay rights aren't an important issue, yet she previously stated that gay marriage was the biggest threat to her state in the past 30 years. Seriously? The very idea that this woman might have a shot at running the most powerful country in the world is truly, truly terrifying.



  28. 28

    Re: boston61 – Why do you assume I'm straight? Can't gay people discuss other issues besides ones sexuality? Do you think all gay people do is walk,talk and think sex all day long?



  29. 29

    Re: bobo99 – You know perez doesn't have a soul… who are you kidding.

    Re: AttFinch – Sexual orientation, like gender, is a social construct. There is no gene that identifies homosexuality because it isn't something that is biologically present. There is a difference between sex for reproduction/biological sex and sexual orientation/gender identification. Calling homosexuality scientific in the conventional sense of the term is absurd. If you are speaking of social sciences, which offer a great body of research into both gender and sexual orientation in Western society than a scientific view of homosexuality is appropriate.



  31. 31

    How can she spend her entire political career spewing gay hate and now that she is running for president she does not want to talk about it. What an idiot. Does she not think that gays/lesbians vote? Or family members and friends of these people vote? I am not gay, but I do have gay friends and her words just make me cringe first then makes me angry. She makes me embarassed of American politics. I would rather die than vote for this hateful excuse for a woman.

    Anderson Cooper is calling someone out for not being straight forward?? Really?? Is this the same Anderson Cooper that is still hiding in his mama's closet afraid to come out to the world?? In the scheme of things, with our country in total financial ruin, gay rights are the last thing on the average American's mind. Jobs, education, healthcare, illegal immigration…I could go on and on and on…all of those issues are soooooo much more important that gay rights.



  33. 33

    Maybe once he (finally) comes out of the closet, Anderson might have some standing to call someone out for not "being straight forward." But not now. Which is a shame. His mom is in the fashion industry - I doubt now that hes almost 50 she or anyone really cares.

    Re: yeez

    People are born gay. It is genetic. Dumb a*s.



  35. 35

    Re: yumba1

    Yes. But this Bachmann story is about her unfettered hate.



  36. 36

    in Stewie Grffin's voice…. Gooo Awaaaay Michele Bachman!



  37. 37

    Anyone else think it is funny that Anderson Cooper is calling HER out for not being straight forward, when he cannot be straight forward HIMSELF?!?! COME OUT OF THE CLOSET ALREADY.



  38. 38

    You really think she is the only one that dodges questions? lmao
    You really think she doesn't know the answers to questions?! Of course she does you idiots, she is in campaign mode and will of course be vague or evade certain questions (especially the same stupid ones she is asked over and over again) just like Obama has done and every other candidate for that matter.
    The more negative people talk about her and publicize her every move the more the left looks intimidated and like a bunch of bullies. Haven't you people figured this out yet?



  39. 39

    Who cares if people are gay? Live your own damn life.



  40. 40

    Her being President and having a say on changing laws for gays/lesbians when she becomes(never gonna happen I hope) President is of great concern/relevance so her endless loop reply of "i'm running for presidency, i'm not anyone's judge" is as dumb as a single cell organism. Is she on glue? What an idiot!



  41. 41

    actually the president should really worry about nuclear weapons, the debt crisis, americans out of work.. why the fck should they care who's screwing who? Most states alreayd have "marraiges" anyway. you have got to be kidding me. I hope the president sees homosexuals as a fringe inssue as getting more divorces on the records isn't going to help stabalize our dying country



  42. 42

    i just want someone to beat loser obama and actually help this country than sit on his hands!



  43. 43

    Re: mgardner – I have to disagree with you on that one. Homosexuals won't be shot on site - they'll be rounded up and transported to facilities where they'll be treated for their "mental illness", as she calls it. She'll feel the need to save them all!
    Re: yeez – Without this settled on a Federal level, no gay person will be able to bring their foreign partner to the US. It's something straight people are allowed to do, but not gays. I have gay friends who have fallen in love with someone and wanted to marry them, but since they were foreign, the relationship had to end, as neither of their home countries allowed gay marriage. I'm so glad to now live in a country that respects the rights of its gay and lesbian citizens, but I'm still going to fight for gay rights in my home country.



  44. 44

    Moron Bachmann NEVER answers a question. NEVER. She is a total piece of shit and her husband is a flaming queen who looks like an old lady.

    You know what this means? Since New York legalized gay marriage, the Republicans have decided that it's no longer a fight worth fighting. This is a good thing. Let bygones be bygones and get on with the real issues. It means that there's no more room for direct and outspoken hatred towards gays.



  46. 46

    Good! She will not be able to continue dodging questions the further she gets in her campaign. She's a right-wing fringe lunatic who hates America. Anyone who supports her hates America.



  47. 47

    SMH I'm tired of the media and their gay agenda

    Re: La Garse – Pot meet kettle - what do yout think you look like genius
    no one forces you to come here and I am so sure Perez needs your advice - please

    Re: Wrenn – Gay rights aren't important to you. Would you say the same thing about black people not having rights, that in the scope of things, the economy is more important than blacks having rights? No, didn't think so.



  52. 52

    we need her to run for president so, obviously, people will vote for Obama again, cause americans are smart. oh, wait…
