Gayle King has said she would legalize gay marriage if she were president.

The 57-year-old King recently joined CBS This Morning as a co-anchor.

At last weekend's The Hollywood Reporter/Google pre-party to the White House Correspondent's Association Dinner, King was asked what law she would pass if she were president for 10 minutes.

“I personally like same-sex marriage for everybody in every state,” she said, then added she would also back a law increasing the driving age from 16 to 18. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Jesse Tyler Ferguson also answered that he would legalize marriage for gay couples if he were president. Ferguson, who is openly gay, portrays Mitchell Pritchett, a gay lawyer who is raising an adopted daughter with his partner on the Wednesday night ABC sitcom Modern Family.

Eric Stonestreet, who plays opposite Ferguson on the comedy, gave a more nuanced answer to the question: “Equality for everybody. I would say we need to figure out a law that makes everybody feel as though they have the same shot at everything that everyone else has in the United States. … Everybody needs to feel like they're an equal person in our society.”
