“They’re looking at Mayor Pete, 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage. And they’re saying, ‘OK, how’s this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband onstage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What’s going to happen there?’”
controversial conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh drew bipartisan criticism
when he suggested that America is “still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing
his husband on the debate stage president.”
conservative icon and longtime cigar smoker has been diagnosed with advanced
lung cancer, and his days are numbered. You’d think an individual diagnosed with
a terminal disease would be contemplative and concerned with his legacy, and
consequently be very careful about the words that he speaks to his weekly
audience of 20 million.
has a decades long history of making homophobic, racist and misogynist
comments, and his pending mortality isn’t enough to make him curb his worst
like Limbaugh are dying out, witness the fact that many leading conservatives criticized
his homophobic remarks. Even President Donald Trump disagreed with Limbaugh’s
assessment. When asked by radio host Geraldo Rivera if Americans were ready to
elect a gay man to be president he replied:
“I think there would be some that wouldn’t, but I wouldn’t be among that group, to be honest with you. … It doesn’t seem to be hurting Pete Buttigieg … very much.”

“They’re looking at Mayor Pete, 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage.”
depicts Mayor Pete as an exhibitionist who loves to kiss his husband on the debate
stage. Mayor Pete loves his husband, and he has every right to kiss him at
home, or in public, though I’m not sure he has ever kissed him on the debate
“And they’re saying, ‘OK, how’s this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband onstage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump?”
going to look? Very endearing that Mayor Pete has so much love and affection
for his husband. That’s how it’s going to look. If only Trump would demonstrate
affection for his wife.
Trump, “Mr. Man”, really? Are we talking about Cadet Bone Spurs who was too cowardly
to fight in Vietnam? Are you talking about the short-fingered vulgarian who is
so insecure that he mocks and ridicules the physical appearance of his
political rivals, including women?
I’d rather have a beer with a real man like Pete
Buttigieg, a veteran who has the courage to run as an openly gay presidential
candidate, than with weak and insecure men like Limbaugh and Trump.
