President Trump Tells Geraldo What He Thinks About a Gay President Like Buttigieg
In a recent interview with Geraldo Rivera on his podcast, President Trump shared his thoughts on a gay president and whether or not he would vote for one.
Rivera had asked the President if he would ever vote for a gay president and if he thought the rest of America would ever vote for a gay president.
Here’s what he said:
“I think so. I think there would be some that wouldn’t, and I wouldn’t be among that group, to be honest with you.”
“I think that it doesn’t seem to be hurting Pete ‘Boot-edge-edge,’” Trump continued. “It doesn’t seem to be hurting him very much. But there would certainly be a group. You know this better than I do. There would be a group that probably wouldn’t. But you and I would not be in that group.”
Rush Limbaugh actually came under fire recently for some comments he made about Buttigieg’s LGBT identity and saying that it would be a weakness:
“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 on stage next to ‘Mr. Man’ Donald Trump? What’s going to happen there? And they got to be looking at that, and they’ve got to be saying, that despite all the great progress and despite all the great wokeness, and despite all the great ground that’s been covered, America’s still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage,” Limbaugh said.
“They have to be saying this, don’t they? Now, there may be some Democrats who think that is the ticket. There may be some Democrats who think that’s exactly what we need to do, Rush. Get a gay guy kissing his husband on stage, ram it down Trump’s throat, and beat him in the general election. Really. Having fun envisioning that.”
