David Letterman Supports Marriage Equality

David Letterman in an interview with Donald Trump has come out in favor of marriage equality. This is a clear turn from his earlier transphobic commentary on the "pregnant man" and his mockery of the movie MILK. During the interview the subject of Carrie Prejean comes up and Trump says he doesn't think that a "man marrying a woman is a controversial subject" in which Letterman replies saying "let’s just go right on the record and say that anybody who wants to get married ought to be able to get married"



Thank the Late Show with David Letterman for his support for marriage equality:

Is it just me or did Trump just agree? I don't know his position of Same Sex Marriage ^.^

Cool the show responded thanking me for supporting the show.

Mewi Trump seems to be anti-gay but he doesn't state his position one way or the other.

Look at Donald's reaction to the statement that Dave makes. This does show how he stands on the Issue. But Thank You Dave for the support.

Hmm... I'm not sure if this is an expression of what they think, or what they think will be most popular with the audience.

I think you're taking some of David Letterman's comments too seriously here.

Vanessa Law said...

Haha, great irony there. 'Community takes comedians comments too seriously'.

I'm pleased that he said it - humor or not. Funny in a way - I'm gay, and an almost rabid supporter of equal marriage rights.....but my views on MYSELF marrying more closely resemble the second part of his remark, hehe........"why whould heterosexuals be the only ones miserable?" LOL! I'll take what I can get - and considering some of his previous iffyness, this is a ringing endorsement from Letterman.
