Bryant Gumbel on NRA: ‘They’re pigs … a curse upon the American landscape

[Ed. – Bryant Gumbel is pig, a curse upon the American landscape.]

Bryant Gumbel, HBO host, had this to say about the National Rifle Association: Members are “pigs,” a “curse” on America and about the most uncaring organization in history.

“There are a few things I hate more than the NRA,” he said, while discussing a segment he did on “Real Sports” that was titled, “Eat What You Kill,” The Blaze reported.

He went on: “I mean, truly. I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape.”

Mr. Gumbel also said during the talk that he still feels how differently he was treated during his time as co-host of NBC’s “Today” show, when compared to other news personalities, suggesting that his skin color had a lot to do with it.
