Former Republican Presidential candidate Pat Robertson, host of CBN's "The 700 Club," had some rather alarming things to say about trans people on a recent episode.
"First of all, he makes it abundantly clear he doesn't know what transgender is," explained progressive radio host David Pakman on his show Thursday. "Then he makes some really off-color comments, and then says, 'What the hell, I'll just compare transgender to being a horse.'"
And that's exactly what Pat did: he compared being a trans person to the time he had a stallion castrated.
Oddly enough, the longtime TV host also appeared to condone sex change operations, saying: "I am not opposed to somebody who feels that they are a boy trapped in a girl's body and they want a sex change operation. I think that happens and I see nothing wrong with it."
So, one step forward, three steps (or gallops) back.
