Yang & "white f******s"

When Shane Gillis used anti-gay slurs, Yang announced that he wanted to meet with him to absolve him.

Why does Yang have the power to make these anti-gay slurs acceptable?

Did he ever meet with Gillis?

1. How very Fox News of you

 

Do you really not know that Gillis insulted Yang personally?

2. Yes, but the anti-gay slurs are problematic

 

It made me mistrust Yang. it made me ask myself if I wanted to have a president who was really so focused on winning over techbros.

Any words on that? Any ideas, kind stranger? Since you're weighing in, any opinion on anti-gay language of that sort?

3. So are the sexist ones. I, a woman, still trust Yang,

 

Even though he dared to - like Obama - appealed to calmer heads, after he was asked about being personally insulted by Gillis.

For some reason, a candidate's response to a comedian's jokes isn't what causes me to trust them or not. It's how straightforward and honest they are.

4. So not a problem

 

If someone is fired for anti-gay slurs, you support them.

My point is that SNL did the right thing, and Yang does not have the moral authority to exonerate anti-gay speech.

You want Shane Gillis rehired?
