The Recount claimed that Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida was “factually inaccurate” because he suggested that men cannot get pregnant.
Ironically, the outlet’s website claims that “Recount Media is a fresh approach to news that shows you what’s happening without insulting your intelligence.” The site also says, “No bulls***. No bad faith. And no time wasted.”
During remarks that appear to have taken place at the National Conservatism Conference in Miami, Florida, Rubio noted the existence of the concept of “pregnant men,” but pointed out that everyone who has “ever been born was born of a biological woman.”
He went on to note that even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employs the phrase “pregnant people.”
The Recount accused the lawmaker of committing “a transphobic attack on the CDC for using the term ‘pregnant people.'”
While it is an obvious and immutable fact that biological women can become pregnant while biological men cannot, those who promote the ludicrous dogmas of radical leftist gender ideology contend that a person who identifies as a man and becomes pregnant is a pregnant man.
Despite the utter absurdity of the idea of pregnant men, a certain segment of society has adopted the concept. In a recently conducted WPA Intelligence poll of registered voters, 22% of Democrats indicated that they thought the statement “Some men can get pregnant” is true.
Rubio has served in the U.S. Senate for more than a decade and is currently running for reelection in 2022 against Democratic Rep. Val Demings of Florida.
“No man in history has ever been pregnant,” Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire tweeted in response to the Recount’s post.
“It is factually accurate to say that a man has never been pregnant. I’m sorry biology is hurting your feelings,” tweeted founding editor in chief and editor emeritus of the Daily Wire Ben Shapiro.
