Al Franken Might Have Discovered a Loophole in ‘Don’t Say Homosexual’ Invoice

One 12 months in the past, Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Homosexual” invoice was signed into legislation. To commemorate the event, Sunshine State governor/Thai meals connoisseur Ron DeSantis is trying to develop the mandate—which prohibits dialogue of gender id and sexual orientation till fourth grade—to all grades via the tip of highschool. However Al Franken thinks he might have found a loophole.

“This ‘Don’t Say Homosexual’ legislation is horrible,” The Each day Present visitor host mentioned on Thursday night time. “Fortunately, though, it doesn’t say you may’t sing about being homosexual.” Franken then demonstrated what this would possibly appear to be within the classroom with a little bit track and dance routine that went one thing like:

In April, Florida’s State Board of Schooling is about to vote on the legislation’s proposed growth. There’ll solely be a pair exceptions to the rule—which, like so a lot of Meatball Ron’s different insurance policies, is aimed toward preventing “wokeness”—together with well being class, which oldsters can choose their children out of taking. Educators who violate the legislation might lose their instructing license.
