Young Turks agree Tea Party cheaters are hypocrites — but only Ana Kasparian thinks they should quit
The Young Turks ripped a pair of Tea Party Republican lawmakers from Michigan who admitted to an affair — as well as a bizarre plot by one of them to cover up their relationship — but they couldn’t agree whether the elected officials should resign.
State Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat have so far resisted calls by other lawmakers to step down, and Young Turks Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian each shamed the officials for their efforts to prevent marriage equality while carrying on their own extramarital affair.
“This is a woman who’s running around telling people, ‘Yo, I’m judging you if you’re not doing the whole traditional marriage thing, but I’m getting some dick on the side,’” Kasparian said. “If you’re preaching about these things and you are a hypocrite on your own ideology, you need to go. Bye, b*tch.”
Uygur, however, didn’t agree that the pair should give up their legislative seats because their hypocrisy should have been clear all along.
“They probably feel like, look, ‘We don’t mean traditional marriage as in you’re actually loyal to your wife or husband,'” Uygur said. “‘No, of course not. We just mean, we hate gay people.'”
“That’s why, when we talk about discrimination against gays, (it’s) actually a form of hatred,” Uygur added. “It’s not like they really care about what the Bible says. When it comes to other things, they don’t give a d*mn what the Bible says”
