Dem 2020 Hopeful Talks About Watching Porn With His Mother At CNN Town Hall

From MRC

You can't make this stuff up.

What does it take for a Democratic presidential candidate to be covered for a gaffe? Does discussing the time you went to see a pornographic movie with your mother count? Apparently not as the networks on Thursday skipped the former Colorado governor’s recounting taking his mom to see the X-rated 1970s movieDeep Throat. 

JOHN HICKENLOOPER: I was 18 years old. And so I came home.... And I said, I promised — you know, I promised Jed that we would go to the movie theater and see this new movie. “Do you want to come?” And it's an X movie... and I was sure that she would say no. I made a mistake. And she said, "I'd love to go," because she didn't want to be left alone in the house again. 

BASH: It was a pretty famous movie, too. 

HICKENLOOPER: So I took my mother to see Deep Throat. And to her credit, the first scene is — I didn't ask the question. But I will tell you that — I will tell you that my mother -- my mother was -- I'm sure she was mortified. And I said repeatedly, I think we should leave, I think we should go. And my mother was the kind of person that rarely went to a movie. She thought almost every movie would get on TV. Obviously, not this one. But she was -- she really — when she paid, she was going to stay. And at the end, she knew that I was humiliated. And as we drove home — and you know how the dashboard in the old cars had the kind of green light, and I — you know, she — I asked her, I said, well, that was some experience. And she goes, she says, "Well, I thought the lighting was very good in the movie."
