When I first saw this I was a little bothered. Although I do dislike Michele Bachmann, it seems as though this little boy was told to say this to the ignorant, judgmental bitch. But then again, I started to think about it more, and whether he was told to say this or not, her reaction is pure gold. She looks dumbfounded and shocked as she tells the boy “bye-bye” after not being able to come up with anything in response to his statement. She just wanted to be done with that and move on to the next person, hopefully someone who agrees with her homophobic stance.
Another thing I appreciated? Mrs. Bachmann is so nice to the woman and her son, but once the boy tells her his mom is gay, she immediately glances a shocked look right at the mother and avoids any further contact. So nothing this gay mother DID changed Bachmann’s opinion, it was simply being told that she was a lesbian. I would never want to see someone with those childish judgments in a position of authority, especially running our country.
And lastly, I completely agree with what was being said and feel it was nice coming from an 8-year-old because he obviously does love his mother regardless of her sexual orientation. Whether he was coached or not should be irrelevant and me thinking it matters was wrong. Yes, he should be able to speak for himself, but he’s much too young to understand that this woman doesn’t like his mom because of who she loves. And on top of all of this, it could very well be what he thought. His mother could have explained that this woman thought she needed to be fixed because she was gay and he wanted to share his feelings.
Either way, this is a great video and shows the true nature of who Michele Bachmann is and how ignorant, unprepared, and badly composed she truly is.
Video of Michele Bachmann trying to get her photo op in with my 8 year old son. It’s hard to hear but he leans in and tells her that his mom is gay and she doesn’t need fixing. GO ELIJAH! Love that look of shock she gets.
We were there for an Occupy Myrtle Beach event to mic check Michele Bachmann on another issue. The lgbt issue came up separately. #Occupymb
