Biden rips Florida over 'cruel' anti-trans push — ‘Close to sinful'

E-mail Print PDF

President Joe Biden bashed a wave of anti-trans legislation from Florida Republicans, calling their efforts to ban gender-affirming care and enact other anti-LGBTQ policies “cruel” and “close to sinful.”

On Monday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” actor and former Obama administration staffer Kal Penn spoke with Biden about his support for LGBTQ rights.

Republicans across the country have deployed an arsenal of legislation against the LGBTQ community, including bills to ban public drag performances, block trans athletes from playing on school teams, and bar discussion about sexuality and gender identity in schools.

Florida Republicans, with the support of Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, have targeted diversity efforts in school and expanded the infamous “Don’t Say Gay” law he signed last year. DeSantis has also attacked gender-affirming care for trans youth, and the Florida House has proposed banning drag shows.
