Today we examine President Barack Obama’s support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights and his executive actions in office since it's LGBT pride month. In stark contrast, we explain why we believe that the hall monitor du jour, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick (R-TX), is winning the contest for anti-LGBT bigot of the year. In TV Talk, Charlie Rose interviewed a pollster with a bad wig that diminishes his stature, and then he chatted with our favorite feminist and political satirist Samantha Bee.
