In this clip, Governor Dannel Malloy of Connecticut delivers a passionate and brutal critique of Indiana’s discriminatory law to CNN’s Carol Costello. After she mentions the support the bill has received from Republican presidential hopefuls, he angrily dismisses the notion: “None of those people that would defend this law are qualified to be President.”
The Governor then lays out the case quickly and effectively: “You can’t have it both ways. Either you’re for discrimination or against it. This law was specifically written to allow companies and individuals to exclude services being provided to individuals based on their sexual orientation. There’s no gray area here, folks!”
Mr. Malloy has been a prominent leader in the backlash against the law, making his state the first to ban state-funded travel to Indiana and encouraging others to do the same.
