Viral Video Alert: Bachmann gets earful from 8 year old

Posted on December 8, 2011


Oh, the things kids say! Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was surprised when 8-year-old Elijah Cromer approached her during her book signing and told her, “My mommy’s gay, but she doesn’t need any fixing.” Bachmann doesn’t hear him at first and asks him to repeat it, then looks shocked when she realizes what he said. Bachmann made it clear to CNN’s John King and she thinks it’s “reprehensible when someone uses a little child to advance a political agenda.” Cromer’s mother insists that her son wasn’t told what to say to the congresswoman. Whether he was coached or not, the video is at 3 million+ views and that makes it a viral video in our world.
