Watch: Pat Robertson Goes Nuclear Discussing Trans Rights

Tuesday Feb 23, 2016

Televangelist Pat Robertson took some time in his "700 Club" broadcast Tuesday to inject some good old fashioned cold war style fear mongering to the debate over which public restrooms transgender Americans have the right to use, Right Wing Watch reports.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, the Iranians are developing nuclear bombs, the North Koreans have a thermonuclear device they say they have exploded and they have rockets capable of reaching, well maybe as far away as the United States. The Shia and Sunnis in the Middle East are getting ready to go to a major war," Robertson told viewers on Tuesday.

"We are facing thermonuclear annihilation and what are we debating in America? What are we debating? Where a little kid goes to the potty. I mean, this is nuts, absolutely nuts. It is crazy," he ranted.

"This whole thing is insane," Robertson continued. "And for the United States of America to put the power of the federal government and all of its money and resources behind this transgender movement, it is just nothing short of insanity."

Robertson's rant was in reaction to the U.S. Department of Education's finding that transgender youth are protected under federal anti-discrimination law.
