Buttigieg responds to Limbaugh homophobic remarks: ‘I love my husband’

WASHINGTON – Pete Buttigieg said Sunday he would not take “lectures on family values” from long-time conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who said that Democrats and America aren’t ready for a gay president.

Limbaugh, who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech, said on his show that Democrats are scared to elect Buttigieg.

“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?” the conservative radio host said. “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 president.”

Appearing on CNN, Buttigieg, 38, responded.

 “Well, I love my husband. I’m faithful to my husband,” Buttigieg said. “On stage we usually just go for a hug. But I love him very much, and I’m not going take lectures on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh.”
