“You mentioned George Washington, who is Martha Washington?”
“How could that be mentioned on your bill in the classroom?”
“For me, that’s not a sexual orientation.”
“Really? So it’s just certain sexual orientations that you want to ban from the induction class.”

Oooooof I need an aisle 5 cleaning for this “lady” because she just got shredded by a member of her own GOP political party for her homophobic bill. 🤭

“Lady” is an amazing word.
A compliment when used to describe someone, an expression of irritation, impatience, contempt when used to address someone.

Hats off to the guy who’s a Republican who calls bullshit when he sees it.

The best back and forth between a lawmaker I’ve seen in a long time. He identified the prejudice and enforced morality that the bill introduced. No screaming, forcing points… just guided them through a logical disassembly of the bill

Simple logic denies everything these sick people “believe”.
