At the end of See what happens live airing Tuesday night, Andy Cohen declares Texas Governor Greg Abbott his “Jackhole of the day” for terrorizing the families of transgender children in his state.
Cohen, the only openly gay late-night TV host, began: “You may have heard that the governor recently ordered that the parents of transgender children are taking care of their children. them to assert gender must be investigated for child abuse. “You heard correctly,” he added, telling viewers that at least one such family “has been investigated.”
“This order goes against the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and everyone who knows that gender-affirming care reduces emotional distress and suicide risk in children,” he said. children identified as transgender. “I can’t believe I have to say this, but there’s nothing pro-family about denying children medical care and threatening to kick them out of their homes and families.”
To all the transgender youth in Texas, Cohen said, “You belong and I stand with you.”
He had another message for Governor Abbott: “Picking vulnerable kids in an election year doesn’t make you a leader, it makes you a bully.”
And finally, for all Texans, Cohen urges, “The best way to fight this bully is to vote like your life depends on it. Because for a lot of transgender kids in Texas, that’s true. ”
