VIDEO: Rick Santorum Was ‘With, Loves’ His Gay Friends

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

don't cry, he still hates the pregnant ladiesOpenly gay CNN reporter Don Lemon was the first reporter we know of to finally ask Rick Santorum a very obvious question: does he have any gay friends? Santorum replied, “Yes, in fact I was with a gay friend of mine two days ago.” And then everyone on earth immediately pointed out that “with” is a polite way of saying “my friend and I did it in thirty different increasingly nasty positions,” and now Rick Santorum is finally out of the closet. Hooray, just in time for the debate tonight! Are you sure you really love gay people, asks Lemon as a follow-up, and Rick says, “they know that I love them because they’re my friends.” Hottt video after the jump!

Rick still says he “talks about these things in front of them,” with “these things” meaning he tells his gay friends he thinks gay sex is like bestiality and that gays should go to jail, which is what you say to people when you love them. [RawStory]

That's "Dick Santorum" to his gay friends.

You can't spell "Rick Santorum" without "santorum". Eeewww.

nounverb911 June 13, 2011 at 4:29 pm

"Yes, in fact I was with a gay friend of mine two days ago.”"
Did he use extra strength santorum?

Terry June 13, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Does the gay friend know that Santorum was "with" him?

Pragmatist2 June 13, 2011 at 4:29 pm

One small problem, Rick may want to "be with" a gay man but no gay man would "be with" Rick.

El Pinche June 13, 2011 at 4:37 pm

I was going to make some buttsex jokes, but you're right. No gay man would want to be with Rick in the first place.

elviouslyqueer June 13, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Do not cross the Weiner joke stream with the Santorum joke stream… or life as we know it will end. With ham biscuits and gravy.

Is that anything like crossing swords?

You know who else crossed weiners and santorum?

No I don't.

And I like it that way, thank you very much!

If life as we know it ends with ham biscuits and gravy, how the hell do I speed up the apocalypse, already?

Are "the Gays" a White Christian family?

No, they're like "the Blacks" that Donald Trump has such a great relationship with. So, actually, yes.

Gay was a nickname for Gayle when I was a young – but I am pretty sure gay was not a term we used for "the Homosexuals" in the late 60's. Actually we didn't talk about it a lot- my two gay cousins were just guys who hadn't met the right woman yet and my lesbian cousin and her partner were just roommates. Anyway, this is what my mom told me and believed- or wanted to believe- for the next 40 years.

As an old girlfriend once told me, what goes in, must come out….

Whoda thunk Cantor has a button dick? Or that he would want to share it with the Dems?

weejee June 13, 2011 at 4:53 pm

Well true to his name, Cantor is a bit sing song.

That's what she said. Actually, that is exactly what she said, I guess.

meufchelou June 13, 2011 at 4:32 pm

RIck, be honest and admit you don't REALLY love them, they're just friends "with benefits."

Swampgas_Man June 13, 2011 at 4:51 pm

And with the Ryan plan, he'll CUT those benefits!

PsycWench June 13, 2011 at 4:33 pm

I wonder what Rick Santorum's definition of "friends" might be. If I talked about how awful Jews are around my Jewish acquaintances, I am not sure they would readily recognize me as a friend.

Fare la Volpe June 13, 2011 at 5:11 pm

But it's not your fault they killed Jesus! Why are they so sensitive? Can't they accept your difference of opinion?

Geminisunmars June 13, 2011 at 6:22 pm

Why, some of my best friends are Jew haters. Since we are friends I don't let their silly little remarks about world financial domination and nazi sympathizing faze me one tiny bit. I mean, with friends one must overlook such foibles, farshteyn?

Katydid June 13, 2011 at 8:01 pm

Jawhol!

nounverb911 June 13, 2011 at 4:34 pm

And what is Mrs. Santorum's reaction to all this? Does she share her clothes with little Ricky?

But Rick didn't say his friends were self-respecting.

Stephen Baldwin? Oh, you said "self-respecting". My bad.

CrankyLttlCamperette June 13, 2011 at 4:37 pm

So Santorum is now joining the Lemon Party?

(for the love of Gawd, don't google that!)

Now why'd you say that, you knew it was going to force me to google didn't you? If I find you live in Tennessee…..watch out.

Thank you for that insightful tip (/pun) we should forward this to his scrotumness and see if he still likes teh Geys.
Or maybe wished to join them.

too delightful, I too have gay friends who also have a santorum fixation….

SorosBot June 13, 2011 at 4:39 pm

"Friends" is not exactly the right word to describe a pair of fellow self-loathing closet cases who Rick has secret shameful three-ways with.

Barb June 13, 2011 at 4:59 pm

Because I love ya, I am going to choose your post to go OT with, lol. The preacher who predicted the May 21st rapture suffered a stroke. Must have been all that physical exertion of having his "donations" converted to gold bars, eh?

Why bother calling 911 if you are so eager to go live with Jesus? Just lay back and enjoy the big dirt nap.

SorosBot June 13, 2011 at 5:09 pm

Aw, I was hoping he'd get to see his latest end-of-the-world prediction date (sometime in October I think) come and go with nothing happening one last time first.

Of course he has gay friends. He was a member of the republican caucus for years.

Fare la Volpe June 13, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Confusing gays with pedophiles is a vicious stereotype. Please don't make it again.

Native_of_SL_UT June 13, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Sorry Rick, being friends with the gays will not fix your Google problem.
It will probably make it worse. Try changing your name to Dick Santorum. That might help.

yyyaz June 13, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Apparently Downfisty McDrool lervs him some santorum.

nounverb911 June 13, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Kirsten, have you met Downfisty yet?

Barb June 13, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Make sure that you surround yourself with teh gays, Rick. That chunky little girl of yours is going to appreciate them later in life when they are the only people who will dance with her.

nounverb911 June 13, 2011 at 4:51 pm

Especially while she's holding the stuffed Gabriel doll.

elviouslyqueer June 13, 2011 at 4:59 pm

And not just dance with her, Barb. We'll also throw in a total makeover, a slamming new hairdo, and a much-needed fashion intervention to make up for that travesty in gingham.

SorosBot June 13, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Well, it's been pretty obvious that that misogynistic little psychopath doesn't "love" women.

Swampgas_Man June 13, 2011 at 4:54 pm

When you love things like women, you want to keep them penned up and controlled, so you can look at them whenever you like. That "set it free" stuff is just liberal santorum.

Swampgas_Man June 13, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Hey, Downfisty Mctroll FINALLY gets around to one of my posts! I've arrived!

Mort_Sinclair June 13, 2011 at 4:49 pm

Lemon must have wanted to swim in an ocean of bleach after that interview. Having to be within a 10-foot radius of that Santorum creature is not worth any pay check. Ugh.

Well if the Lemon has sufficient pucker factor. Ya know Nature abhors a Santorum, just too sucky.

Swampgas_Man June 13, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Sorry, Senators Huckleberry Graham and Mitch 'Turtlehead' McConnell, but you're going to jail.

But will Elaine Chao, aka McConnell's beard, have to be sent to prison also, for the crime of enabling gayness in the Senate?

P.S. Re Elaine Chao, this is how I first became a Wonkette common tater.

ttommyunger June 13, 2011 at 6:39 pm

About time for Elaine to give Mitch his contractually agreed to "Birthday Blowjob", isn't it?

Sue4466 June 13, 2011 at 4:55 pm

How much self-loathing would one have to possess to be a gay friend of Santorum's?

SorosBot June 13, 2011 at 4:55 pm

Santorum thinks their his friends because he doesn't understand what a friend is, as he doesn't have any. Here's what you should ask youself, Rick, to determine if someone is a friend: will they be there for you-ou, 'cause you're there for them too-oo?

DaSandman June 13, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Just come on out of that scary right wing wardrobe, big boy. All your ghey friends will protect you and love you even more, if that's possible.

Has he taught the kids the lyrics to YMCA to go with the letter mime?

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 13, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Isn't the more important question: When was he last with one of his dog, Mormon or child's friends?

DaRooster June 13, 2011 at 5:03 pm

"Don't be gay Sparky… don't be gay.

DemonicRage June 13, 2011 at 5:03 pm

Right now, with Obama in the White House, there's an LBGT event scheduled in the White House, sometime in the month of June, celebrated in Liberal places as Gay Pride Month. What do you think the chance is of that happening if Santorum is elected? But then again, what do you think the chance is that Santorum will be elected?

AlaskaGrrl June 13, 2011 at 5:06 pm

Liar, liar, pants on fire! Friend, this man has no friends. He creeps everyone out, can't open his mouth without sounding like the judgmental dickwad he is, and besides, his last name is the same as that frothy mixture of lube and cum after anal sex. Might as well just say, "Hi there, I'm Rick Shit-stained-sheets, wanna be my friend?"

KeepFnThatChicken June 13, 2011 at 5:08 pm

"They respect that I have differences of opinion about that"

No, Rick, they do not. It's hard to respect someone who derides a legal system without Leviticine justice (did I just coin a word?), and knows with certainty you're going straight to hell. If anything, you should pity them; they're near you because you're either family, mutual friends, or you pay them.

Just walk away from public life, please.

Rick Santorum is not gay, but his boyfriend is.

I'm sure this means that he's not giving up on gay men.

I don't think "friend" means what he thinks it means.

carlgt1 June 13, 2011 at 6:04 pm

but he didn't say he has gay black friends! and surely not Don Lemon now!

drrty_martini June 13, 2011 at 6:19 pm

"Love" involves lots of judging, right?

imissopus June 13, 2011 at 6:31 pm

He was "with" a gay friend two days ago? Celebrating Pride Weekend, no doubt, maybe hanging out at a parade.

AngryGeometer June 13, 2011 at 6:33 pm

In an attempt to grab the "urban" vote, Santorum should start talking like Tracy Morgan's character from 30 Rock. "Gays be stealing my sperm, Don Lemon!"

rocktonsam June 13, 2011 at 6:42 pm

and a yellow polo shit to boot, priceless

and the other guy has a pink shirt on, omg

x111e7thst June 13, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Did his gay friend make him wear a ball-gag? Because that's what I do when I hatefuck a Republican.

ttommyunger June 13, 2011 at 6:46 pm

It must have been a "private" meeting. No self=respecting gay would be seen with this self-righteous prick. That pix is so revealing; you can see the wifey thinking, "I made this bed, now I've fucking got to lie in it." But the kids, the poor kids; their faces are just saying; "We are sooooo fucked!".

MissTaken June 13, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Santorum does realize that "friending" someone (I'm gonna guess Lady Gaga) on facebook doesn't actually make you friends, right?

Redhead June 13, 2011 at 7:06 pm

Why sure, I tell my friends I hate them all the time.

widget2011 June 13, 2011 at 7:22 pm

This is the slippery slope that we’re heading down, and I stand by it. [emphasis added]

Also, a "frothy" slippery slope indeed.

I think it's another example of another idiotic conservative dog whistle called "Tough Love". Santorum: "Yeah, I have a gay "friend" (loosly added), but I think he needs to be put in prison, a place where plenty of homosexual activity occurs.

Brilliant Douchebagger. Also.Legendary Homophobe.
