Patti Davis: My Mother Nancy Reagan Quietly Supports Same-Sex Marriage
Patti Davis said that her mother Nancy Reagan supports same-sex marriage. Signorile writes:
Regarding her mother’s position on gay marriage, Davis, who was estranged from her mother for many years but reconciled with her shortly after President Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease in 1994, said Nancy Reagan supports marriage equality but is reluctant to say so publicly. “She does,” Davis said in response to the question. “I’m hesitant to speak for anyone else, and she’s not comfortable going out in the public eye and getting in the firing line of anything. So, you know, I want to be cautious about speaking on someone else’s behalf. But let me put it this way: I think if she had disagreed with what I said publicly about my father she would have said something publicly.” Davis chuckled and added, “Let’s just put it that way. That’s the most sort of politically correct way I can answer that question.”Davis made national news earlier this month when she said that her late father would have backed same-sex marriage, a claim that was hotly denied by wingnut tool Michael Reagan.
