Dan Savage Accurately Refers to The Bachmanns as “Grifters” and “Scumbags” on Real Time With Bill Maher.
In the very NSFW clip above, Dan Savage and comic Marc Maron throw down on Friday’s Real Time with Bill Maher, accusing Marcus and Michele Bachmann of abuse, both of gay people and government funding.
Savage rips into Marcus Bachmann’s ex-gay therapy clinic by noting that professional medical associations consider such practices a form of abuse. The columnist states, ““You can’t pray away the gay but you can torture a conflicted closet case to death, which is what they practice at clinics like Marcus Bachmann runs when he’s not flitting around.”
Maron chimes in with the first of several increasingly x-rated punchlines, calling the Bachmann’s marriage a “prolonged experiment in reparative therapy.”
Savage moves on to little-discussed facts concerning the Bachmann’s use of farm subsidies even as they officially decry government handouts, leading him to call them “grifters” and “scumbags,” prompting Maron to turn the subject back to sex which is, admittedly, way more entertaining than farm subsidies.
