Tammy Bruce, a Fox News contributor and politically conservative lesbian, made headlines today after she said she would never be allowed to guest host on the network because of her sexual orientation.
Bruce, a self-identified "Tea Party Patriot" was responding to a fan on Twitter:
Thanks :) @andreakaye5, I'd love to fill in for O'Reilly, but I've been told it will never happen because I'm gay. Go figure...
