CNN anchor Chris Cuomo apologized for a remark he made during a series of LGBTQ town halls on Thursday.
Cuomo introduced California Sen. Kamala Harris at the Los Angeles event, who opened by saying her preferred pronouns were “she, her, and hers.”
“Mine too,” Cuomo quipped.
"Alright," Harris said.
Cuomo issued an apology soon after the event.
“PLEASE READ: When Sen. Harris said her pronouns were she her and her's, I said mine too. I should not have. I apologize,” he tweeted. “I am an ally of the LGBTQ community, and I am sorry because I am committed to helping us achieve equality. Thank you for watching our townhall.”
Biden plays off gaffe:
During Biden’s town hall, he began a sentence with “when I came out…”
"Well, that would be news," quipped CNN host Anderson Cooper.
“I got something to tell you ... ,” Biden said as he walked over and put his arm around Cooper.
“I kind of figured it out a while ago,” Cooper replied.
Later in the broadcast, Biden got serious when talking to a transgender woman who said she had to choose between her gender identity and serving in the military after Trump’s ban on transgender troops.
"If I were president, you would not have to choose," he said. "Not a joke. You would not have to choose. The fact of the matter is that we're in a position where transgender men and women are in a position where they should be able to do anything anybody else in the world can do. There should be no difference."
Warren scores points with gay marriage quip:
The most widely shared clip from the town halls came from Massachusetts. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who was asked by an audience member what she would say to someone who believes marriage is between one man and one woman.
“Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that and I’m going to say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that,’” she said.
After a pause, she added, “assuming you can find one.”
