Democrat Perfectly Taunts Speaker Johnson with LGBT Stunt

via CBS

Democratic Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota made a personal comment during her vote for speaker of the House, highlighting her same-sex marriage and implying opposition to the new speaker, Mike Johnson, who has reportedly opposed gay marriage.

The gesture was seen as a political move, and Democrats applauded it despite Johnson being elected speaker.

Johnson’s conservative stances on abortion, gay marriage, and the 2020 election results have made him a feared figure among Democrats.

She prefaced her vote for House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries with a shout-out: “Happy wedding anniversary to my wife.”

She made this announcement to highlight her sexual orientation and the fact that she is married to a woman.

Craig’s supporters argued the stunt was an effective display of courage and disapproval of Johnson’s policy positions.

On the other hand, critics claim it takes “a special kind of narcissism” to believe the status of one’s private relationships can act as an effective retort to differences of political policies.

“Mike Johnson spent his legal career fighting against same-sex marriage, adoption and marital benefits,” the congresswoman said. “Now he’s brought that fight to Congress.

“Proud to vote against him on my 15th anniversary with my wife, Cheryl. @RepMikeJohnson enjoy it while it lasts – it won’t be long.”
