Watch: How John McCain Ruined Gay Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Contestant’s Dreams Of Wealth

When the absolutely adorable Matt Rodrigues (with his boyfriend in tow) stopped by Who Wants To Be A Millionaire to win a million bucks, he received a video question from John McCain. WATCH HIS FACIAL EXPRESSION WHEN HE LEARNS WHO IT IS, BECAUSE IT’S WORTH MORE THAN A MILLION BUCKS. “In 2008,” McCain starts reading, “I was teased in the press for repeatedly referring to people as what?” Apparently “second-class citizens” wasn’t an option, so Matt struggled with the question.

    Now poor Matt’ll have to marry the money like John did.

  • Gigi

    Priceless! Poor cutie.

  • Josh

    Um, this kid really didn’t follow the 08 election? At all? This should’ve been a $200 question. Why on EARTH would any presidential nominee get any flak for referring to his fellow citizens as, um, “fellow citizens”?


  • MuffinMan21

    Haha, hilarious.

  • Red Meat

    McCain just can’t stop ruining gay people lives.

    The Old Coot drove Cindy to anti-depressants, so what’s changed?

    Umm…this guy must be completely and utterly tuned out….The biggest election ever (the whole world was completely obsessing over it!) and my first presidential voting opportunity….and he didn’t know McCain was crawling all over the place saying “my friends”….This guy’s a complete loser….Some people just don’t pay any attention! He didn’t even watch the SNL skits…?

  • Jeff K.

    Gods, I would have totally gotten that one! My friends and I played a drinking game during the presidential debates in which every time John McCain said “my friends” we would take a shot. Needless to say it didn’t last very long…

  • Pip

    umm… What is a bigot!!

  • ewe

    How much do you think John McCain received for doing that little stint? I bet it was more than 5000

  • ewe

    Did you see his face beginning at second 8? It explains all the distaste gay people have for the republican right.

  • ewe

    Why is John McCain introduced as a celebrity?

  • Jeff K.

    @ewe: I know, you’d think in order to be a celebrity, you’d have to be celebrated by someone.

  • yay

    Like most gays, he was too busy stuffing drugs up his nose and making bitchy comments about other people’s shoes to follow political news.

  • Casey


    Josh, look at all of McCain’s speeches, they start of with “My Fellow Citizen.” But how would you know you were probably helping ACORN commit registration fraud for Obama.

  • hephaestion

    Why is “Millionaire” putting that asshole McCain on their show???

  • christopher di spirito

    @hephaestion: The Old Coot is a shameless fame whore. He should be working on jobs — not going on Millionaire. But, Arizona elected this slacker.

  • UserQQQQ

    um.. why is this an article? So the dude grimiced a little. this is hardly showcasing John McCain’s dislike of the homosexual community or for all we know this dudes dislike of John McCain. Maybe he’s just turned off by his awkwardly non-symmetrical eyes. I know I might have done that same facial expression and I’m not gay either.
