Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin Makes A Fool Of Herself On CNN Arguing GOP Platform Is “Inclusive” To Gays

What is supposed to be a celebratory week for Republicans is very rapidly spiraling out of control.

Not only was the first night of the RNC plagued by a foul stench (of rotten bananas and mildew, specifically), a failed coup by Anti-Trumpers, poor attendance and accusations of plagiarism, but Republicans on the media circuit haven’t been helping matters.

Yesterday, the co-chair of the GOP platform committee, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, attempted to explain to CNN why the anti-LGTBQ GOP platform isn’t really anti-LGBTQ, despite all the homophobic and transphobic rhetoric.

In the interview, Fallin said that the Republican Party will “stand for the human rights of all people, not just one segment, one class, one race, one preference, but for all people in the United States.”

That’s great! Except for the fact that the official GOP platform explicitly says: “Traditional marriage and family, based on marriage between one man and one woman, is the foundation for a free society and has for millennia been entrusted with rearing children and instilling cultural values.”

Oh, and it also calls the whole trans bathroom issue a “dangerous” invasion of privacy as well as an attempt by liberals to further their own agenda.

And don’t get us started on what it says about abortion (which it opposes) and the adult film industry (which is labels a “public health crisis”).

But, according to Gov. Fallin,”we’re an inclusive party; we’re a big tent!”

“The main thing is, we think all human beings, no matter who you are, deserve respect, deserve equal treatment, and should be respected in all that we do, and be protected,” she told CNN.

She also noted there was a gay person on the committee that wrote the official platform. But she left out the part about how that person (Rachel Hoff) later said she so offended by Republicans’ sentiments that she was considering leaving the party.

Watch Gov. Fallin spin a sloppy word salad in the video below. Or don’t.
