Elizabeth Warren wins the internet with her response to a homophobe

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has become a viral sensation after her response to a question during the LGBTQ issues CNN Town Hall forum.

During the course of Warren’s Q&A, a man in the audience asked for her hypothetical response if a voter approached her insisting that marriage should only be between one man and one woman. The Massachusetts Senator didn’t hesitate with her response.

“I’m going to assume it was a guy who said that,” Warren quipped to laughs from the crowd.  “And I’m going to say then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that!” Her remarks invited laughter and thunderous applause from the audience.
