During a segment of his CNN town hall, 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg challenged President Trump and Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh to a debate on “family values.”
WashingtonExaminer reports Pete Buttigieg blasted President Trump and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh for their comments about his sexual orientation and marriage.
“The idea of the likes of Rush Limbaugh or Donald Trump lecturing anybody on family values,” Buttigieg started saying during a CNN town hall before the crowd burst into applause. “Sorry, but one thing about my marriage is, it’s never involved me having to send hush money to a porn star after cheating on my spouse with him or her.”
“If they want to debate family values, then let’s debate family values. I’m ready,” the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, added.
Last week, Limbaugh suggested Buttigieg’s sexuality would be a liability against Trump.
“A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump have fun with that?” he said.
