This is offensively stupid. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case as we have seen. This is no longer the Party of Lincoln, Reagan, or even George W. Bush, who did more than any other U.S. President to combat AIDS. I’m embarrassed to be a Republican.
Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact.
“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”
