BUSTED! Florida AG Pam Bondi made up claim about ‘rainbow-hands people’ on her website
Despite what she told Anderson Cooper on Tuesday afternoon, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s website shows no immediate signs of support toward LGBT communities, Politico reported.
Bondi first made the claim during an interview with the CNN host concerning her anti-LGBT politics prior to the mass shooting attack at an Orlando nightclub on Saturday night.
“I will say I have never really seen you talk about gays and lesbians and transgender people in a positive way until now,” Cooper said. “I read your Twitter history for a last year and you were tweeting about, you know, National Dog Month and National Shelter dog appreciation day or adopt a shelter dog day. It is Gay Pride Month. You never even tweeted about Gay Pride Month.”
“Well actually, if you look at my website now, we have hands clasped together, all different-colored, rainbow-hands people,” Bondi replied.
