We tried to catch all we could of CNN’s town hall on LGBTQ issues Thursday night (which coincided with President Trump’s massive rally in Minneapolis), but it was such a clown show we missed a lot. Julio Rosas caught this clip of CNN host Nia Mikayla Henderson being reminded that it’s “violence” to misgender or alter a trans person’s name after she pronounced Shea as “Shay” and not “She-uh.”

Can you believe candidate Julián Castro just smiled and let Henderson get away with perpetrating violence like that? Would an “Are you OK?” have been too compassionate?

And not a single candidate would dare risk a vote and say, “Let’s not go overboard. I wouldn’t consider that violence.”
