Singer Adam Lambert has labeled
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann a 'bully' for her anti-gay views.
The 29-year-old singer on Monday took
to Twitter to blast the presidential candidate and winner of the Iowa
straw poll in Ames.
“yup girl, your views are too clear:
you're an extremely ignorant woman who just grins when she's called
out. No thanks,” he tweeted to his more than 1 million followers
along with a link to a YouTube video of Bachmann's Sunday appearance
on Meet the Press.
the segment, Bachmann objected to host David Gregory's line of
questioning regarding her position on gay marriage, whether she would
appoint an openly gay person to her cabinet and whether she believed
children being raised in a household headed by a gay or lesbian
couple are a family.
A clearly uncomfortable Bachmann
complained, “You know, all of these kinds of questions really
aren't about what people are concerned about right now,” and later
added, “I don't judge.” (The video is embedded in the right
panel of this page.)

“I usually steer clear of politics
but she is a bully,” Lambert messaged a few moments later. “Kids
get teased in school by offspring of this type of parent.”

“Well said Adam,” messaged one, and
another simply retweeted Lambert's tweet along with the hashtag
