Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, who is seeking a congressional seat in California, told CNN on Monday that his past remarks about women were an attempt "to be a stupid politically incorrect Republican."
"First of all, I wrote that stuff 19 years ago; I deleted it 15 years ago," Uygur told CNN host Chris Cuomo during an on-set interview. "I deleted it not because I thought I'd get caught or someone would find it, I deleted it because I didn't believe it anymore. This is not me. I was trying to be a stupid, politically incorrect Republican. So I wrote these things I knew were offensive."
Uygur, 49, is running for the House seat previously held by Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.), who announced her resignation in October amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Isn’t this the wonderful person who gave us AOC?
But yet the media goes back decades to bash Republicans/Conservatives.
I knew he had a good excuse and that he is a victim. DUH.
He was NEVER a Republican.
Being from the middle east, is he not from the religion of peace?
“he underwent a political transformation into a liberal”
From an a-hole to a bigger a-hole.
i.e. “I was only joking.”
Yes. He wants to be liked by brain-dead people. Good excuse indeed!
And what is a Young Turk?? a baby jihadi?
Ah, the old “I was just doing research” excuse in a slightly altered form. Nobody believes it but liberals can pretend to and that’s good enough.
Another leftist breathing a lie.
Its what thy do.
“I was trying to be a stupid”
And you have been a smashing success.
> Being from the middle east, is he not from the religion of peace? <
You betcha. So any criticism of him would obviously be Isamophobia. Im actually surprised he hasnt played that card yet.
Cenk Uygur.....sounds like an STD a guy would catch from a hooker in Istanbul.
Doesn’t matter, he’s got a D beside his name.
For crying outloud he created a group/show called “The Young Turks”...which anyone with an ounce of historical knowledge knows the Young Turks were the perpetrators of the Armenian Genocide!!!
But I guarantee no one has asked him a single question about that have they????
How stupid are you to name your group after people who starved millions intentionally to death????????
That’s like calling yourself the NAZI’s.
What’s his EXCUSE for that? Were you being a political correct republican then arse hat?
So, liberals are cool with everything that Trump did as an actual, registered Democrat? Didnt think so.
