Last night Suze Orman appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Live and politely decimated the positions of a conservative author and Heritage Foundation fellow. Curiously, if you read the Heritage Foundation’s website, they claim their representative, Ryan Anderson, won.
Watch the video — the exact same one they posted on their site — and you’ll see that clearly, Suze Orman, a respected pundit, financial analyst with her own CNBC show on finance, and a lesbian in a life-long same-sex relationship.
“I feel compassion for you,” Orman tells Anderson. “And I’ll tell you why. Because I know you believe very strongly what you believe, but I also know that you’re very uneducated in how it really works.
“I believe from the bottom of my heart that if you really understood why the government does need to get involved, why it does need to be legal on a federal level, if you really understood that, there’s no way that you would sit there and say what you are saying right now.”
At one point, Piers Morgan says:
“The idea that you want to stop people like Elton [John] and David [Furnish] or Suze and K.T. from getting married in America in the modern era, I just find a bit offensive these days. It’s not fair, it’s not tolerant, it’s not American.”
I strongly urge you to watch the entire video. It’s compelling, especially toward the end, and the knowledge Orman delivers is outstanding.
The Supreme Court justices should have been made to watch this today.
