Mark Steyn, a right-wing author and frequent Fox News guest host, questioned whether presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is actually gay and whether Sen. Elizabeth Warren is really a woman while filling in for Rush Limbaugh this week.
Steyn also dismissed candidate Andrew Yang, an Asian man, saying Yang “doesn’t count” as a person of color while incorrectly stating that he was the only person of color still running for the Democratic nomination. Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is now the only African American candidate remaining in the Democratic primary Now now that both Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have dropped out of the race.
“Cory Booker has suspended his presidential campaign,” Steyn said. “So he’s gone. There are now no — I believe there are now no people of color left in the Democrat primary except Andrew Yang. And he’s Asian — so as we know from recent court decisions, that doesn’t count.”
“Mostly septuagenarian white men, although I believe Elizabeth Warren — oh yeah, she’s still in, she’s of course officially a person of color in that she was Harvard Law School’s first woman of color. So she’s — suck it up, minorities! This is what happens when you mortgage your future to the Democrat Party!”
“The great repository of diversity now is Elizabeth Warren! The first woman of color,” Steyn continued. “We know she’s, what is she, 1/1,054th of color? Actually, do we know she’s a woman? I mean, who’s to say that’s not all a big scam, too?”
“And it’s just going to be a bunch of septuagenarian white guys up there, along with Mayor Pete. Do we, are we really sure he’s gay? I mean, he looks like some guy from the accountancy department. He doesn’t — that’s a very non-gay look. I don’t know.”
“Anyway, the whole thing is the diversity of the Democrat primary has completely vanished, now,” he concluded. “Cory Booker is out. I love it, it’s this, just like big extreme geezer showdown. It’s dancing with the coots. That’s basically what the Democrat primary has boiled down to.”
