Michele Bachmann refuses to answer questions about her husband’s clinic

Published

Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN) has remained silent on her husband’s Christian counseling center, which reportedly practices a discredited “reparative therapy” aimed at converting patients into heterosexuals.

ABC News presented undercover video Monday that confirms the clinic owned by Bachmann and her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, does indeed try to “pray away the gay.”

When News8 anchor RaeChelle Davis asked Bachmann on Monday about the hidden camera video, the congresswoman refused to answer the question.

“Well, I’m running for the presidency of the United States and I am here today to talk about job creation,” she said.

When pressed for an answer, Bachmann against responded: “Well, I’m here to run for the presidency of the United States,” adding she was “very proud” of her and her husband’s business.

When ABC News confronted Bachmann about reparative therapy being practiced at her clinic, she again refused to talk about it.

“I’m focusing on turning the economy around and on jobs so that’s what I’m focusing on,” she responded.

The American Psychological Association and American Psychiatric Association have both said there is no evidence that reparative therapy can change sexual orientation.

“This is so far outside the mainstream it’s practically on Mars,” Dr. Jack Drescher told ABC News. He added that the therapy could actually harm patients.

Marcus said in a radio interview unearthed by ThinkProgress that “barbarians need to be educated” when asked how parents should deal with non-heterosexual children.

“They need to be disciplined,” he said last year on Point of View Radio Talk Show. “Just because someone feels it or thinks it doesn’t mean that we are supposed to go down that road. That’s what is called the sinful nature.”

The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists working to defeat Trump, said that "only one candidate will protect your family from coronavirus" in a new video.

Trump said he would give UN speech despite pandemic — but reversed course and won’t be attending

Published

US President Donald Trump will not attend next week's UN General Assembly gathering in person, his chief of staff told journalists aboard Air Force One Thursday, according to a pool report.

The decision marks an about-face for Trump, who last month said he wanted to deliver his speech in the General Assembly hall in New York, even if other world leaders are staying away due to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ended the debate once and for all, telling reporters en route to Wisconsin, where Trump was to hold a campaign rally, that the president would not physically attend the General Assembly's 75th session, which will take place mainly by videoconference due to the health crisis.
