Anderson Cooper brought on Al Melvin, a state senator from Arizona who supports the bill allowing businesses to refuse to serve gay people on religious grounds, to discuss the measure on his Monday show.
Guess who won the argument?
Sample comment from Cooper:
“You’re running for governor of Arizona. You're going to be governor of gay and lesbian people, and you can’t even go on the record and say if a gay or lesbian person is fired simply for being gay or lesbian, that’s discrimination? You can’t even make that leap and say, ‘Yeah, that would be discrimination?'"
Melvin did not have a good response.
Watch the full exchange above.
