Television and radio host Larry King is certain the United States will someday elect an openly gay president.

The 80-year-old King made his prediction during an appearance on The Rubin Report, which is hosted by Dave Rubin and broadcast on The Young Turks Network. Rubin publicly came out gay in 2006.

When Rubin brought up a recent Larry King Live interview with conservative radio host Dennis Prager, King, a strong supporter of LGBT rights, said that he likes “great moral arguments.”

“I think on the gay issue, he's way off track,” King said. “But he comes from a religious bent. And he asked a question that caused you to think.”

“Dennis Praguer said, if you had two people, you're the judge, someone's going to get this child, a gay couple or a heterosexual couple and they're equally valued. Who would you give the child to?”

“I can see where he's coming from where you can make a case for that. And I like great moral arguments like that. … What we want to do is think – we want to progress, we want to think.”

“Gay is a civil rights issue,” King later added. “And what the people opposed to it have to face is, it's a losing war.”

“We have a black president. Yes, we'll have a gay president. Yes, we'll have a female president. Life is changing. And the politician will have to change with it, or lose.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
