Amy Kushnir, the anti-gay Dallas morning talk show who stormed off the set of her show after a heated exchange about ESPN airing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend, has landed on Anderson Cooper’s “Ridiculist.”
The openly gay CNN anchor sarcastically ripped Kushnir apart, after she complained that Michael Sam’s brief kiss was “pushed in faces” of viewers, and “wrong” because parents did not have a chance to screen the moment in time to approve it for their children.
Said Kushnir, before storming off the set:
“To Amy Kushnir’s argument that nobody shows football players kissing their wives or girlfriends, that’s simply not true and I don’t think she’s being honest when she wouldn’t want to see that either,” Cooper said during the segment. “If you’re uncomfortable seeing some kind of affection… why not just say that and leave the excuses about why you’re uncomfortable where they belong: on ‘The Ridiculist.’”
Then Cooper played footage from a February show, showing Kushnir sitting on the arms of two buff, shirtless Chippendales dancers on her own TV show, and then proceeds to kiss them both on the cheek.
“It’s okay, she was kissing strippers. And she didn’t really even know them,” Cooper said after airing the video evidence of her hypocrisy. “It’s not like two guys who were in love, or anything. That’s offensive.”
