Bachmann on ‘pray the gay away’: Thought it was ‘pray away the grey’

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared on The Tonight Show Friday evening, trying to explain her husband’s “pray the gay” comments and therapy on same sex marriage.

Host Jay Leno was perplexed by that phrase, seeking to find any understanding on it. “Well that whole ‘pray the gay away, I don’t get that,’ Leno said.

Bachmann offered a peculiar reply. “Well see, when I heard that, I really thought it was like a mid-life crisis line,” she said. “‘Pray away the gray,’ that’s what I thought it was.”

Sensing that Bachmann wouldn’t budge on her feelings on gay marriage, Leno added: “I’m not going to change your mind on that one.”

"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.

Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."
