MISTER PRESIDENT

Larry King Gazes Into A Crystal Ball And Sees America’s Future Gay President

Screen Shot 2014-03-26 at 3.41.46 PMLarry King recently sat down with Dave Rubin to play the guest for a change, and the two cover all things politics and how the world has evolved over Larry’s career.

In this notable segment, Larry reminisces about civil rights in the ’50s and ’60s, how the struggle relates to gay rights now, and where he sees it all leading.

Here’re a few highlights:

On politicians who oppose gay rights:

“Gays are [a] civil rights issue, and what the people who’re opposed to it have to face is, it’s a losing war.”

On the future of the presidency:

Now we have a black president. Yes, we’ll have a gay president. Yes, we’ll have a female president. Life is changing and the politicians will have to change along with it – or lose.

We certainly hope you’re on to something, Larry.

Here’s the clip:

      Sometime, yes, of course. The only question is how long it will take. It’s unlikely that being gay will ever be a significant *advantage* for a presidential candidate, except perhaps in standing out a bit in a crowded primary. I’d say 2030 at the earliest.

      I’m pretty sure this country has already had a Gay president.

      Already had one probably, Buchanan, but not one who was widely known to be gay at the time of election. I suspect that will occur much later than 2030, probably after many of us are no longer here.

      @Mikah: Agree. And I’m sure before Obama this country already had a Black one. But he was able to pass big time.
