Skip to comments.Did Joel McHale actually "out" Lindsay Graham at the WH Correspondents Dinner last night?

Haven't seen any other comments on this, so I thought I'd ask others here what they thought. During his gig last night, Joel McHale appeared to "out" South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham.....(link below)
And then he follows it up by saying "Lindsay, if you're here now, you can drop character any time now.."
Is there another possible interpetation??
Here's the link..it starts at the 17:45 mark
He made several other jokes about sexual orientation earlier..so he wasn't worried about going there...but the reference to Graham seemed so pointed...is there another explanation? Maybe I'm missing something about the Blanche DuBois characterization..but I don't think so...it obviously means that Graham would be in drag..
FYI..list ping, please...and the gallery of images...
That is so, Not right..... back in the day they would call this a fairy or queer.
My grandmother used the word “Peculiar”.
But did he really do it?
I don’t know. I was watching a baseball game.
Our Grandmothers must have gone to the same school.
Or you know he was just making a joke.
Aren’t you fobsmacked by the reality that our WQhite House is now hosting this degenerate obsession with sex and drugs? Do the remaining spiritually alive Americans just wag their heads and look the other way when such filth as this democrips party has installed in government at all levels reveals its degeneracy so openly and with no fear of consequence. Think about what that says about our now lack of taboo structure to define the society! The White House of little barry degenerate bastard boy hosting filth and degeneracy is a show that our society is now at this level of cesspool.
I've always promised to never use negative terms such as Barbie hugging Broadway-showgirl tootsie-roll-eating lizard worshiper, a brown-wind-loving pole pushing vacuum-lipped anal warrior, a carrot-swallowing poodle owning skipping little hotdog-eater, a chalk-licking lavender sniffing cheeky merrymonkey pole-vaulter, a cigar smoking giggling little donut-puncher, a Crisco-hoarding, rainbow-prancing, Fucsia Puffed batty boy, a feminine-acting, stick-twiddling parade-marching ball-juggler, a gerbil-feeding flower sniffing rainbow-squatting bottoms-up boy, a giggling little donut-puncher, a glitter-loving tail-tickling Cleveland Steamer pooftah, a ham-slamming organ grinder, a latte-swilling, boy-texting pump-a-loaf bread-boffer, a limp-wristed prancing knob-jockey , a loafer-lightening grass-tickling pounder of fudge, a merrily-hopping NPR-listening musical-favoring chin-trauma patient, a merry delicate lightly-prancing dress-favoring protein-burper, a pearl-necklace adorned tumblebunny, so I wouldn't stoop to calling them names.
LOL, as in “Light in the Loafers.”
I’m partial to “Turd Burglar” and “Rug Bumper”.
Dude..I gave you a linkee...
Maybe j-z will give him an honorary 5% medallion to wear. Pretty much goes along with what jerry wright was preaching to the obies all those years and the BLT guide book. I can’t believe how divided and hatefilled this country has become over the last 6 years. And it’s only getting worse there mr. uniter. Right on the path for a war between the will do’s and the won’t do’s. aka makers and takers. And it’s mostly from the “progs”.
Why not? Americans generally find the “we all know you’re gay so stop pretending” line of humor pretty funny. And actually we tend to like it more when people DON’T think the target is gay, it’s more absurdist then.
I don’t know about outing him. Its pretty much assumed.
I thought he “outed” him.
And back in the day whole society would not tolerate that kind of thing.
hmmm...tough question, Stanley Kowalski or Blanche DuBois...Lindsey seems more like...more like...am I allowed to say an anorexic Truman Capote?
I’m not defending anybody, just pointing out that the vast majority of the time a cigar really is just a cigar. Joel made a lot of gay jokes in his set, and people laughed at all of them, getting suspicious that one was an “outing” is kind of silly. I don’t know and don’t care if Graham is gay, it’s his voting record I oppose and that gets neither better or worse with who he beds. It’s a joke, just a joke, reading more into it is just sad obsessive behavior.
Maybe Graham just says, “Oh, my!” a lot.
The problem I have with this is that it’s OK to go after Lindsey’s sexuality at a public forum like the WH Correspondents Dinner. What would happen at the same dinner if somebody joked about thunder-thighs and her taste in women?
I also made no accusations. You see a lot of things that aren’t there.
Oh my! In my almost 80 years I am learning new words. I will not use them however. Peculiar is good enough for me.
h/t to martin_fierro for the graphic
Okay ping list... all together now...
Did anyone watch the Kentucky Derby???
That Johnny person ... I guess anything goes now.
LOL! Black Liberation Theology. Talk about racist. WOW! If you get a chance to look into it you’ll see the evil that the lyin’king supposedly never heard in all those years sitting before the rev. wright.
I am convinced that the MRAPs and billions of bullets are not staged for keeping peace, they are the tools destined (by the demonically inspired oligarchs) to be utilized when the starvation, disease and mayhem have reduced the population to 'more manageable numbers'.
But this reality is impossible to get to consciousness for the racist leadership and out of the question for the mass of government dependents because they now have been so enslaved and sequestered into cities that they cannot afford to awaken to their true enslavement and destruction destiny.
That’s not an accusation of anything, just pointing out that your BEHAVIOR is overly focused on pointless things is a less than joyful way.
Ruh Roo! You used the word “enslaved” thereby proving that you too must be racist. LOL! :>}
It is an article of faith among Freepers to say that Lindsay Graham is a homosexual, based upon his personal behavior (he certainly doesn’t come across as a manly person) and the fact that he has never had a girlfriend relationship that we know of and remains unmarried in his 50s.
Yet, there is a good possibility that he is not a queer. People who are his age leave a trail of evidence (i.e., those with whom he has had “affairs” and people who know of his sexual proclivities), especially someone who has been in the public eye all these years. Yet, no one can point to any evidence.
Also, don’t you ever wonder why a political opponent has not come up with something to use in a campaign against him? It would be dynamite in a state such as South Carolina.
Folks, all you’re dealing with here is pure, unadulterated speculation.
Would you bet your farm Lindsey has never been with another male?
I wouldn’t bet a single spit.
My mama would have called him a “confirmed bachelor.”
What exactly am I supposedly accusing you of?
I think Lindsy being a rump ranger is pretty much old news.
Is there anyone in DC who doesn’t (wink, wink) know Graham’s leanings. That, IMO, would be the basis of the humor to the joke.
As an illuminated Freemason, he almost has to be one.
Was he “outed” as a democrat?
OTOH, can you imagine a reporter or news organization which would not want to grab a story like that and run with it?
Like Obama was “outed” as a mozlom!
