Are you finding it hard to find a partner? A Republican politician has offered up his lawnmower to any gay people who want to get married.

Republican congressman Steve King was speaking at a campaign event this week for Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee.

Speaking about the Supreme Court ruling that brought same-sex marriage to all 50 states, King claimed that under the ruling “you can marry my lawnmower”.

It isn’t the first time the Republican has made the bizarre claim.

According to the Dickinson County News, he said previously: “It’s a fact of history that children do better in a home with a mum and a dad.

“The civil government got into the business of promoting and supporting Holy Matrimony because these basic values are the building block of our civilization. Now, the Supreme Court has ruled that they’re not. Their ruling really says anybody can marry anybody — and eventually it will be in any combination.

“I had a strong, Christian lawyer tell me yesterday that, under this decision that he has read, what it brings about is: It only requires one human being in this relationship – that you could marry your lawnmower with this decision. I think he’s right.”

He did not detail an application process for potential lawnmower suitors.
