Elizabeth Warren’s SHOCKING Marriage Equality Answer


>>At last night’s CNN Equality Town hall,
there was a lot of serious discussion, but there were few moments that got a little bit
lighter, even a few laughs. Here is a great example of that.>>And a supporter approaches you and says,
Senator, I’m old fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one
woman, what is your response?>>Well, I’m gonna assume it’s a guy who said
that.>>And I’m gonna say then just marry one woman.>>I’m cool with that.>>Assuming you can find one.>>Okay, that was funny. She has been criticized, I’ve seen, quite
a bit for that. Not necessarily from people I always agree
with on anything, but a lot of people, probably more centrists, maybe eve right-wingers are
like well, you can write off Pennsylvania, Wisconsin. They started listing all the states that because
you are so callous in your disdain for Christianity, you have no chance of winning these states
now.>>And I bet the people that are gonna show
up and fill in that space are the Gen-Z’ers who live for meme culture. And there are also going to be a lot more
LGBTQ people. This is probably one of my favorite moments
with Warren. She was having fun. You could totally see she was having fun. In fact, this is her signature move now, and
when she rubs her hands together, she’s literally releasing the hair follicles from snatching
the entire audience bald with these like quick, funny, this is her new thing.>>She did the same thing when she made the
comment about if you’re gonna just ask, say, we can’t, why run for president, and then
she’s like, that’s her signature.>>I never noticed that, let alone-
>>She has a tell.>>Yeah, let alone the why she’s doing it
that you just explained. I wanna be clear and fair. You’re an advisor to Elizabeth Warren.>>I’m a surrogate. The wonderful thing that I love about it,
and this is part of the conversation I even had around the town hall too last night, is
that the campaign, all honesty, has never asked me to not speak about things that are
more important to me. I’m still friends with other people from different
campaigns. There’s a lot of cross-collaboration. Because I think, ultimately, the slate of
candidates that we have, there’s a lot of shared ideals. And I think that this is why all of the kind
of back and forth, it’s unnecessary. Cuz I think at the end of the day, whoever
wins the primary is gonna be someone who has an idea what kind of conversations need to
be happening, and what kind of moves they need to make to represent us in the general.>>All right, and now, I wanna address John’s
point. So this is something that happens all the
time, and it’s also a point about privilege.>>So whenever a Progressive criticizes anyone
in the Right, it’s very predictable, not just the Right-wing, but a lot people in the mainstream
media come out and go you can kiss Pennsylvania goodbye now. Okay, so let’s break that down a little bit. So I guess you assume that Pennsylvannia is
bigoted, right? They are homophobic, etc. This talk of well that means you insulted
all Christians. Wait a minute, you’re not speaking for all
Christians. You’re talking about the fundamentalist Christians
who hate gay people. Okay, but if you notice, if someone goes after
African-Americans, who’s a Republican, nobody ever says kiss Philadelphia goodbye, and without
Philly you can’t win Pennsylvania. Forget Pennsylvania. I can’t believe this idiot would dare to criticize
African-Americans. Trump today doing a rally or yesterday attacking
Somali immigrants who are African-Americans and Muslims, and nobody’s saying kiss Michigan
goodbye cuz you just offended all Muslims, kiss Pennsylvania goodbye because of African-American
vote that is significant in that state, etc. Because the people in power don’t relate to
black folks, don’t relate to poor folks, don’t relate to Muslims. They relate to other people, so they automatically
assume well, okay, that’s it. Since you offended someone like me, even if
I don’t agree with them, but fit my demographic, I’m assuming you’re gonna lose. And I’m gonna tell everybody you’re gonna
lose, thereby hurt your candidacy. But if you offend people that are not in power,
that are a significant voting block, no one cares.>>And let’s be real. Did you actually believe that they necessarily
had it to being with? It’s one of those things where that would
have been the same response no matter what was said, what the outcome was, it would have
been just that. And even with Elizabeth Warren, if she were
too rigid and serious, she needs to loosen up. She’s like the same thing they did with Hillary. But now, she’s cracking jokes and she got
her hand game going on and her crapshoot moves, and now she’s just not taking this serious. She’s just, gay rights. At the end of the day, most of what they’re
adding to the conversation has no real merit or validity or any factual data supporting
their belief.>>So that’s the last thing I was gonna say,
cuz it’s so important. You’re not gonna get the racist, bigoted homophobic
Trump voter anyway.>>Yeah.>>Stop it.>>It’s total nonsense. It’s not like there’s somebody sitting in
the middle of Pennsylvania going man, you know I hate gay people and I hate black people
and stuff, but I was thinking about voting for Warren instead of Trump. But when she said that comment about I should
marry one woman, which I agree with, that really made me mad, and now I am not gonna
vote. That is gas lighting 101, okay? And it was never the case. But I want you to know what’s real intent. The people who do it, they might not even
consciously know it. I would actually guess that most of them don’t
consciously know it. But the intent is if you’re Progressive, don’t
speak up. Don’t fight back, cuz then I’ll tell you you’re
stupid and you’re gonna lose the election. Cuz what is their assumption? The country is center-right. That’s not remotely true. If you look at the polling, it’s the exact
opposite. Two-thirds of the country is Progressive,
and I have proven to you in two dozen polls. But everyone on television assumes, everyone
in the pundit class assumes, the country’s Right-wing, country hates gay people, right? What an idiot supporting gay people? You’re gonna lose Pennsylvania, right? Well, then why are we having the forum? Why do we even have a Democratic Party? No, the whole point is to try to get people
like Elizabeth Warren to shut up. Well, she doesn’t agree, and she won’t do
it. And nevertheless, she persisted. And that’s what people like about her. And guess what, that’s why she’s right now
the front runner in the race. It’s not like being more Progressive hurt
her, it took her from near bottom to the very, very top. How many times have you heard pundits on television
go, you know what, it was a brilliant move by Elizabeth Warren to be really, really Progressive. It took her from anonymity nearly, and I mean,
they wrote her off in the beginning. You remember that. After the Native American heritage so-called
scandal controversy, etc. Every so-called smart analysts on TV was like
she’s done, we’re done with her, right? Now, she’s number one. How did she get there? Through bold Progressive plans.>>And credit. One of the things I love the most about Elizabeth
Warren, she gives credit where it’s due. So she will give Bernie credit. She will give Castro credit. She will say you hade this amazing idea, I
support that. I may not understand the nuts and bolts of
it, but you know what, you’re working on this, I support that. And I think that it’s gonna take a candidate
who’s gonna be able to unify. And so, that two-thirds that you’re talking
about, I think it’s because we’re all starting to see through the gas lit fog of the GOP
and these talking heads and political hacks who are just trying to scare us. Because really, they’re afraid. Because they know tick-tock, time’s up.
