Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg faces a liability against President Trump because of his overt affection for his husband, Chasten.

More than one week after being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Limbaugh claimed it would be “fun envisioning” the contrast Trump would offer to Buttigieg. “A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump have fun with that?” Limbaugh asked.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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 president,” Limbaugh said.

The comments were criticized harshly on social media.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the latest winner of the Medal of Freedom: Rush Limbaugh,” tweeted The Daily Beast.


The Advocate, and LGBTQ news site, tweeted, “Trump’s latest Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient weighs in on Pete Buttigieg.”

“Rush Limbaugh: ‘Mr. Man Donald Trump’ will ‘have fun’ with Pete Buttigieg because he kisses his husband,” tweeted Media Matters.

Washington Post reporter Eugene Scott tweeted, “Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Rush Limbaugh on ‘Booty-gieg’ —

“’A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump have fun with that?’”


Sarah Burris with Raw Story, tweeted, “I doubt Mayor Pete will be taking marriage advice from the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump, who have seven wives between the two of them.”

Adam Nathaniel Peck with Center for American Progress said, “He’s a real cancer on the national discourse.”
