MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has labeled Mitt Romney's president campaign “queer” and urged the candidate to “get used to it.”

On her The Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow said a number of events were forcing Romney to speak out on gay rights.

“I'm pretty sure this has been the gayest week in Mitt Romney's whole life,” Maddow told viewers before running down a list of gay-related news items, including Vice President Joe Biden's remarks on gay marriage on Meet the Press, passage of a gay marriage ban in North Carolina, President Obama coming out in favor of gay nuptials on ABC News, a The Washington Post piece on Romney bullying a gay student in high school, a GQ story on a Romney aide gleefully ending the political career of a Massachusetts state representative by outing her as transgender, and Romney giving the commencement speech at Christian conservative Liberty University.

“You know how some days are red-letter days on the calendar? This has been a rainbow-lettered week in the campaign to elect Mitt Romney president of the United States,” Maddow said.

“Mr. Romney, I'm sure you didn't think it would work out like this but this is your campaign now. It's here, it's queer, get used to it,” she added. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
