Elizabeth Warren wows gay-rights town hall with marriage zinger

At a town hall event in Los Angeles Thursday night, Elizabeth Warren gave the ideal response to a question about "old fashioned" views of marriage.

Warren was among nine other Democratic nominee hopefuls who took questions on LGBTQ2 issues during a televised CNN forum on Thursday evening.

During her time, Warren was asked by HRC's Board of Directors chair Morgan Cox what she would say if a supporter told her they believe marriage is between one man and one woman, specifically due to their faith. Warren quickly replied: "Well, I'm going to assume it's a guy who said that".

And then she delivered the second part of her response: "Assuming you can find one".

The social media crowd's response to Warren's tongue-in-cheek remark was a somewhat mixed one, as netizens seemed either amused with her wit or displeased by the fact that she essentially did not answer the question she was asked in the first place.

The response drew loud applause from the crowd-and from many people online.

"I know that back in Oklahoma in those days there weren't many people who were out, but the way I grew up it was just gradual".

"My pronouns are she, her and hers", Harris said. "Jesus loves all the children of the world", she said, singing the tune. "You know, I don't have notes from when I was a little kid", Warren said, receiving a laugh from the audience.

"To me, it's about what I learned in the church I grew up in. It was the two ladies who lived together and it was just a part of what we understood", she says. It is really about the preciousness of each and every life. Because I think the whole foundation is the worth of every single human being. "I get people may make decisions for themselves that are different than the decisions other people make".
