Ellen Page Grills Ted Cruz About LGBT Rights At Iowa State Fair w/video

Actress Ellen Page caught Sen. Ted Cruz off guard at the Iowa State Fair on Friday, pressing the presidential candidate about LGBT rights as he grilled pork chops.

In video posted online by ABC News, Page, clad in a hat and sunglasses, asks Cruz about LGBT discrimination and rights.

"What about the question about LGBT people being fired for being gay-trans?" Page asked the Republican.

"What we’re seeing right now, we’re seeing Bible-believing Christians being persecuted for living according to their faith," Cruz said.

The candidate tried to shut down the impromptu interview by saying he didn't want to have a "back-and-forth debate," but the "Juno" star soldiered on.

1. Excellent. Ellen Page is awesome.

Audio's not good, but it sounds like Cruz ignored her question in favor of some story about supposed Christians somehow being pressured to allow gay people to marry in their "beautiful historical church?" Or something. That would not really happen and would not be tragic if it did.

NOTE TO RELIGIOUS CONSERVATIVES:

OTHER PEOPLE BEING ABLE TO HAVE OR DO THE SAME AS YOU DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE OR CAN DO LESS.

IDIOTS.

2. Gee whiz, Sen. Cruz

How you gonna stand up to the hobgoblins infesting your defective brain when a diminutive actress can give you the red-ass that easily?

4. They actually think it's a religious freedom issue

 

They are trying to say that Christians are being persecuted because the government won't let them discriminate and hate LGBT. They are actually calling it a "religious freedom" issue.

And they are serious with that angle.

5. Ellen Page, one of our favorite upcoming new stars.

Loved all of her movies except that gory one called "Super".
I had some problems with that one.

7. The Canadian odd couple

I think that Page really held her own against that whiny jackass.

9. Some thoughts

Some thoughts on this.

She came to his turf to confront him +

She also brought a script so she had the questions and answers. -

Cruz answered her scripted questions and hit them out of the park. I'd hate to see how well an actress would do acting
extemporaneously. ++

Cruz always sounds whiny, it's the way he talks. =

Cruz won this one, especially at the end. ++

I hope it's Bernie VS Cruz for excitement or Bernie VS Bush the III for the easy win.
