Broadway icon Patti LuPone said Tuesday she “could cry” over how similar conservative Christians are to “the Taliban” — an inflammatory remark that came just moments after she claimed to have post-traumatic stress only curable by the prosecution of former President Donald Trump.
“I could cry,” said LuPone, speaking of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and his efforts to block education on gender identity and sexual orientation for young children. “I don’t know why he’s doing this. I don’t know — I mean, I’ve said this before and I’m going to get in trouble. I’ve said this before, and it’s been in print. I don’t know what the difference between our Christian right and the Taliban is. I have no idea what the difference is.”

“What’s happening in this country right now in the name of religion is so dangerous,” she added during her appearance Tuesday morning on “The View.”
A downtrodden Whoopi Goldberg agreed with LuPone, responding, “You’re not the only person who’s said that, I have to say.”
This is not the first time the far-left LuPone has equated Christians to radical Islamic terrorists.
In 2018, during a profanity-laced tirade about Trump and conservatives, LuPone — speaking from London — said, “The Christian right in America is no different from al-Qaida. Print that, because someone needs to say it out loud!”
She said this week that, when she was growing up, she never heard of America as “an experiment.”
“They never said America was an experiment when we were growing up,” she explained. “It was a democracy. And now it’s in such danger. It’s so upsetting. It’s upsetting to hear the loudest voices and not any kind of pushback to the loudest voices that are the extremity in this country.”
As for Trump’s indictment last month, LuPone said it’s “not enough” and that she wants to see the former president face additional charges as that is the only way she can move past her PTSD.
“It’s just not enough,” she explained, clearly infuriated. “I want Fani Willis, and I want Jack Smith, I want anybody else indicting him to indict him now so I can get over my PTSD.”
