On Thursday evening, CNN held an LGBT town hall event. At one point, CNN host Chris Cuomo make a joke about his "preferred pronoun" however he quickly apologized after he received backlash from the radical left-wing mob.
Senator Kamala Harris proudly appeased to her radical left-wing base by telling Cuomo that, “My pronouns are she, her and hers.”
“She, her and hers? Mine, too,” Cuomo joked.
“All right,” Harris responded.
Cuomo was immediately met with backlash from the weak, triggered left-wing mob online.
“Chris Cuomo just mocked Sen. Kamala Harris saying her pronouns by responding ‘mine too’ and the gasp I let out. Not. Okay,” The Advocate’s Editor-in-Chief Zach Stafford said on Twitter.

Shortly after the joke was made, Cuomo released a statement apologizing for his innocent joke.
“PLEASE READ: When Sen. Harris said her pronouns were she her and her’s, I said mine too. I should not have. I apologize. 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," he said in a tweet.

Believe it or not, this wasn't the most bizarre thing that happened during the town hall event. At one point during the event, Senator Elizabeth Warren applauded a nine year old transgender child, (biological girl) who identified as a "transgender American."
“My name’s Jacob, and I’m a nine-year-old transgender American,” the child said while standing next to her mom.
“All right, Jacob,” Warren said while applauding.
"Jacob" then asked Warren what she would do during her first week in office to make transgender children “feel safer in schools” and what “schools need to do better so I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework.”
“Oh, I like that question, Jacob! Let me start by saying I want to have a secretary of education that who both believes in public education and believes in the value of every one of our kids and is willing to enforce our civil rights laws,” Warren responded. “We’ve had some secretaries of education who’ve been better, and we’ve had one that’s been a whole lot worse. Her name is Betsy DeVos. So, when I’m president, she’ll be gone.”
Warren then said that she wanted "Jacob" to help her pick the right person for the job.
“I want to make sure that the person I think is the right secretary of education meets you and and hears your story, and then I want you to tell me if you think that’s the right person and then we’ll make the deal,” she said.
