Kathy Griffin calls Marcus Bachmann one of her ‘new favorite targets,’ hints he’s gay

Now that making fun of Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann is so yesterday, comedienne Kathy Griffin is going after the Republican presidential hopeful’s husband of 33 years, Marcus Bachmann.

During a recent appearance on Craig Ferguson’s “Late Late Show,” the red-haired television personality took jabs at Marcus Bachmann, who runs a center that uses prayer to turn gays straight.

“The Bravo special was supposed to be called ‘Pray the Gay Back.’ You get the Marcus Bachmann joke? Marcus Bachmann is one of my new favorite targets, he’s Michele Bachmann’s husband,” Griffin said. (RELATED: Kathy Griffin’s ‘D-List’ Bravo show to go off the air)

Griffin went on to hint that perhaps Marcus Bachmann opposes same-sex couples because he himself is attracted to men.

“Okay, he’s very anti-gay and LGBT rights, and it’s odd, because if you look at him on YouTube, it’s almost as if he himself … or, it’s as if …” Griffin said, trailing off.

Before the former “My Life on the D-List” host could finish her sentence, Ferguson advised the memoir writer to be careful. Starting over, Griffin said Bachmann seems similar to the guys who attend her stand-up acts. A known gay rights activist, Griffin has previously referred to her gay friends as “the gays.”

“I would say that Marcus Bachmann reminds me of a lot of the type of men who come see my live shows,” Griffin said. “And he wants people to pray the gay away, and so I was going to call the [my TV] special ‘Pray the Gay Back.’”

Instead, Bravo will title the special, “Kathy Griffin: Pants Off.”

Marcus Bachmann is nowhere near the first right-leaning individual Griffin has publicly insulted. Griffin has reportedly called Michele Bachmann a bigot to her face, made jabs about “Dancing with the Stars” finalist Bristol Palin’s weight, threatened to begin bullying teenager Willow Palin, and poked fun at Christine O’Donnell during a “Glee” guest appearance as a narrow-minded tea party member.

Watch: Griffin on Ferguson:

    Kathy Griffin’s new special is called “Pants Off”.  How not surprising.  Her claim to fame is bashing people.  Bashing their lives, looks, politics, whatever.  Let’s remember that she herself had a nose job, veneers, eye brow lift, liposuction and more.  I don’t get people who are so miserable in their own lives that they spend all their time tearing others apart.  What a sad way to live. What an unpleasant person.  Surprised her marriage lasted as long as it did.  I think she amused me for a brief while in her Suddenly Susan days but now the schtick has gotten old.  Boring.  You know exactly what she’s going to say.  It’s like watching a borderline interesting movie over and over again.  Once is enough.

    The fact is that Kathy Griffin would be a complete unknown if it wasn’t for her constant popping-off and low-class antics. I mean, shacking up with boy-toy Levy Johnson?  A comedian needs to bring the funny and because Kathy is unable to do so she relies on these types of low-class taunts.

      I Didn’t know that the He/She trans was a comedian. That’s funny because He/she is not funny. These half things really shake things up. In the old days when an Idiot would say something no one ever heard of it because the media would not feel it was news worthy but now there are a lot of brain dead people (Democraps) that think this is really something…. Go figure….

    There is one narrow minded person that I know of and that is Kathy Griffin. She is a low life pig that hates the majority of Americans. She needs help.
