Buttigieg Responds To Rush Limbaugh’s Comments About His Marriage

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Rush Limbaugh made some comments about Buttigieg’s marriage and Buttigieg bit back.

According to Fox News:

Buttigieg said on Sunday that he is proud of his marriage and his husband following comments from Limbaugh about whether voters would elect him because he’s been “kissing his husband” on stage after debates.

I’ll admit, that’s kind of a cheap way to word it.

Buttigieg continued: “And I’m not going to be lectured on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh or anybody who supports Donald J. Trump as the moral as well as political leader of the United States. America has moved on and we should have politics of belonging that welcomes everybody. That’s what the American people are for. And I am saddened for what the Republican Party has become if they embrace that kind of homophobic rhetoric.”

Hmm. So the Democrats use literally any opportunity to blame Trump and his supporters in some way… cue the eye rolls. This whole shindig didn’t even have anything to do with Trump.

Limbaugh was expressing his thoughts about America potentially not being ready for the first gay president yet.

Heck, we just recently had our first black president.

More from Fox News:

Trump said: “I think there would be some that wouldn’t. I wouldn’t be among that group, to be honest with you.” Trump spoke during an interview with Geraldo Rivera on Cleveland’s Newsradio WTAM.

I feel like Trump will win, irrespective of an opponent’s sexual orientation.
