Rachel Maddow took on President Barack Obama on her show yesterday, highlighting the hypocrisy between his campaign promises to the LGBT community and his lack of followthrough. The video was sparked after the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear a case about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Maddow makes many excellent points by playing instances of Obama making the promises and what he has actually been doing.
The video also references a Gallup Poll on Americans and DADT. The results are pretty surprising.
Maddow explains that 13,000 Americans have been discharged because they were LGBT. That means 13,000 skilled and willing to serve people are not allowed to due to their sexual orientation.
The entire segment can be viewed here. The last two minutes kind of drag, but the rest is well worth watching.
