In an amazing exchange on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this Tuesday, Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy slammed Indiana’s GOP governor Mike Pence for signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) into law.
“The governor’s not a stupid man, but he’s done stupid things,” Malloy said to Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, “And signing this law — and, quite frankly, promoting this law — knowing exactly what it was going to do, was an incredibly stupid thing for him to do.”
“[Pence] knew exactly what he was doing, and when you see a bigot, you have to call them on it.”
In the wake of the bill’s signing, Malloy suspended all state travel by his administration and other state employees to Indiana.
“We cannot sit idly by and do nothing while laws are enacted that will turn back the clock,” Malloy said, adding that he “won’t allow any of our citizens in Connecticut to face discrimination in other states, at least without a fight.”
