    Rush Limbaugh weighs in on Pete Buttigieg

    The right is very proud of Rush Limbaugh having received the Medal of Freedom at the SOTU address.

    Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday suggested former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg wouldn't look masculine standing next to "Mr. Man" President Trump on a presidential debate stage because he is an openly gay married man.


    Democrats are “sitting there, and they’re looking at Mayor Pete, a 37-year-old gay guy,” Limbaugh told his radio show listeners while discussing what he perceives as a weak Democratic field. “And they’re saying, 'OK, how’s this gonna look, a 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband onstage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What’s gonna happen there?'"

    I have a message for Rush Limbaugh. Most people that have been diagnosed with metastatic cancer, generally they believe they're facing a judgement, not with any man but with God at the end of their days.

    Freedom and humanity just called, they want their medal back.

    Is he upset that Buttigieg has only been married once and is in a committed, loving relationship?

    "Mr. Man" himself, catch me I am about to swoon.

    Trump November 2013: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible."

    Trump as President of the United States March 2020:
    “I don't take responsibility at all”

    Limbaugh is saying Mayor Pete wouldn't compete with Trump on the debate stage because some folks are prejudiced against gay people or married-gay people.
    By the same token, IMO, Trump couldn't compete with Mayor Pete on the debate stage because some people have preconceived notions about Trump.

    This is what is wrong with today's American politics, IMO: Too much rhetoric (from both Rush and anti-Trumpers) and too little substance in politics.
    EDIT: Yes. Even Limbaugh is more concerned with feelings than facts.

    No. He isn't saying some people are prejudiced against gay people. He is perpetuating that prejudice as an argument against a candidate.

    He is addressing the obvious. Most don't play into the political correctness you enjoy. They just tell it like it is.

    What was it he said that was so horrible? How's it going to look to have a presidential candidate kissing another man on stage?

    Yeah, I wonder that myself. You think the country is ready for the first (first lady) being a man married to another man? Not to mention how are leaders of countries who kill, jail, and torture gays going to receive a gay president of the US?

    Running from the obvious questions just to be more woke doesn't accomplish anything other than sticking your head in the sand.

    Rush is dying, so he is not a player anymore.
    Russian trolls and their supporters go on Ignore, automatically: no second chance.

    What else do you expect from Rush Limbaugh? Unfortunately, there's plenty of people voting for Trump that feel the same. It's not like homophobia died after gay marriage was legalized.

    Limbaugh assuredly believes but there is no doubt his main goal is to fire up his listening audience.
