Remember the name, Sen. Cory Booker. He plans to be around a long time, and in a high position in the land someday.
But this article is about MSNBC host Katy Tur. I am surprised she decided to go this route, especially with her family track record. Google her dad or mom, whichever he transitioned to. To even justify Booker attacking Mike Pompeo is ridiculous and beyond the pale.
Tur eagerly cued up a clip of Booker pestering Pompeo with the liberal agenda item: “Is being gay a perversion? Yes or no, do you believe gay sex is a perversion?” Noting that he stood by his support of traditional marriage from his days as a Republican Congressman, Pompeo explained: “Senator, I’m going to give you the same answer I just gave you previously. My respect for every individual, regardless of their sexual orientation, is the same.”
Following the soundbite, Tur rationalized the importance of the back and forth:
So some folks watching might say to themselves, “Well, why does his view about same-sex marriage matter if he is going to head the State Department?” It doesn’t seem immediately relevant. But when you consider what his role really is…he’s going to be the head diplomat for the United States. He’ll be representing American values overseas, and in some places where gays and lesbians are targeted, and often targeted violently.
Maybe if he had let the man answer a question instead of interrupting every time, right? And last time I checked being a Secretary of State doesn’t include having sex of any kind!
Katy justifying this only reminds me once again what she has to face in her father and I am not trying to be evil or nasty, I am being truthful. She gives her dad a pass for his transition so why not Cory?
As for Cory, it sounds to me like he knows a lot about same-sex partners! Oh, that’s none of my business, even though it seemed he knew so much about it and all. I personally don’t believe in men on men sex and women on women sex, but you know like the commercial says to have it your way.
If I had been sitting there, after the second time Booker asked his silly question, I would have answered, “You are trying to force YOUR bigotry on me, and I don’t appreciate that. I said I treat everyone equally, now drop it. Your interview is done.”
