MSNBC anchor David Shuster continued his outspoken disdain for anyone that supports traditional marriage. Directly after Donald Trump announced Miss California Carrie Prejean could keep her title on May 12, Shuster asked “Can I vomit?”
“Can I vomit right now? I mean, literally. Can I vomit?” Shuster said. “Doesn't this represent everything that is wrong with the superficial nature of these pageants? I mean, she talked about how women can make a difference in the world. She lied. She avoided taking personal responsibility. She blamed others whether it's Perez Hilton or the photographer.”

Shuster has also attacked traditional marriage advocate Brian Brown from the National Organization of Marriage and snidely thanked Joe the Plumber for a “lesson in tolerance,” because he also opposes gay marriage.
