Trump allies take aim at Buttigieg’s sexuality, a possible sign of things to come

“They’re sitting there and they’re looking at Mayor Pete — a 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage. And they’re saying, okay, how’s this going to look, a 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband onstage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What’s going to happen there?” Limbaugh said. (Buttigieg is 38.)…

On his own radio show Wednesday, Sebastian Gorka, a former deputy assistant to the president and a Trump campaign surrogate, questioned “what right” Buttigieg had to talk about abortion rights.

“Why is a homosexual man lecturing us about the sanctity of life in the womb? Just a little curious there. Strange, strange,” Gorka said. “I thought you’re supposed to stay in your lane as a leftist. You can’t comment on the lived experience of the other.”

Conservative radio host Ben Ferguson said Wednesday he had no problem with Buttigieg being gay, though he seemed to be implying that Buttigieg is less masculine because he is gay when he posted on Twitter, “For people who don’t think “masculinity” matters in elections call this former Presidential candidate!” He appended a photo of 1988 Democratic nominee Mike Dukakis in a tank, the subject of ridicule at the time.
