Kathy Griffin to Michele Bachmann: Were You Born a Bigot, or ...

by at . Comments

Kathy Griffin has been a recurring thorn in the side of the Palins, so it's no surprise that GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is in her sights now.

Appearing on Conan this week, the comedian recalled meeting the Congresswoman in D.C. while researching for her rally to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

How did that run-in go? Listen to Kathy describe it:

Perhaps mistaking Griffin for someone else, or simply not recognizing her, a Michele Bachmann staff member began filming their interaction for her website.

First, Griffin says she asked the Minnesotan if she'd support an effort to repeal the law that banned homosexuals from serving openly in the military.

Bachmann declined, so Griffin got personal: "Congresswoman Bachmann, were you born a bigot or did you, like, grow into it?" she asked, to her face.

Her answer? "That's a good question. I'm gonna have to get back to ya."

Now that would be a great presidential campaign slogan right there.


As a life long Minnesotan, I can honestly say that Michele Bachmann doesn't need any help from anyone to look stupid! As to Kathy Griffin's question, she was definitely born a hateful bigot bitch. To spew the hatred and offensiveness that she does is embarrassing to the majority of the people in our state that don't share her hate filled views. Of course the same thing can't be said about the brainless, dumb fuckers that live in her district that keep re-electing her.


@octo) You are so stupid. Yes democrats took majority power, the took the House and Senate in 2006. Bush was overuled the last 2 years of his presidency. The Democrats have had majority power 2006-now they have made the economy crash. So know ur shit before you talk kid.


kathy griffin is an amazing actress, comic, and singer. especially with cher. Theres no better.


Ok 1st off- Ty democrats took over in 08...06 was bush....second off the only reason Kathy is in this segment everyone, is bc she caught the congresswoman tounge tide! And made her look stupid!

Team me

Uhhh... who gives a shit about Kathy Griffin and what she did or didn't say? I think you fuck heads are missing the point. There is an ignorant HOMOPHOBE running for president who, if elected (God forbid), wants to repeal the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. This country takes one small step in the right direction and you already have intolerant, hateful people trying to take two steps back. She and her stupid ass husband look at homosexuality like it's some kind of DISEASE that can be cured through prayer. And you dumb asses only care about what Kathy had to say.
Ron Paul 2012.


Kathy is an fugly old has been Fameho who is so desperate
She has to sleep with Briistol Palin's sloppy seconds


You are all idiots if you believe this attention hor!


I have no problem with a female running this country but between Palin, Bachmann, and O'donnell I think I would give up my citizenship and move to Canada or Mexico! These woman give a bad name and taste in ppls mouth for females in politics!!!! As far as Kathy goes I think she is super funny and she has tons of gay friends, to bring up clay is just silly and years ago!


Another Kathy Griffin hallucination from the topless "entertainer" desperate for attention. The last resort of a has-been celebrity is politics. There is no evidence that this incident ever occurred. Even if it did, it just demonstrates Griffin's uncivil crudity.


If she weren't a bigot I'd think she would have a spontaneous answer and not "have to think about it".
