Rush Limbaugh Mocks What ‘Manly’ Trump Will Do To Pete Buttigieg
So what's the problem?
Did you know that Pete Buttigieg is gay? Not only is Pete Buttigieg gay, he often appears at events with his husband. I know this will shock you, but like married couples everywhere, Mayor Pete kisses his spouse on stage during events.
I know what you’re thinking, “So, what’s the problem?”
Well, I am not exactly sure. For that we’re going to have to ask Medal of Freedom winner Rush Limbaugh, who has taken a great deal of time to study this issue. After all, I didn’t know that Pete’s spouse traveled with him, but Rush certainly does. Not only has Rush studied the fact that Pete and his husband traveled together, but Rush has even seen them kiss. Probably more than once, given Rush’s response to this “dangerous” activity.
Yes, Rush is concerned enough that he is dying to talk about it on his radio show, describing it in weird detail:
A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump having fun with that?
They’re looking at Mayor Pete, 37 year old gay mayor of South Bend Indiana, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage. And they’re saying: “Okay, how is 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. They have to be saying this, don’t they? Now, there may be some Democrats who think that is the ticket. There may be some Democrats who think that’s exactly what we need to do, Rush. Get a gay guy kissing his husband on stage, ram it down Trump’s throat, and beat him in the general election. Really. Having fun envisioning that.
That is one hell of a lot of mentions about “37 year old man kissing” is it not?
Now, I am a 47 year old man who has hung out with tons of gay guy friends, and want to know the weird thing? I never found it weird. I never noticed it any more than seeing PDA with hetero friends. It just didn’t strike me as a thing.
So I always wonder about folks who go on and on about “kissing” and “37 year old men.” Thus, I believe it is important to say to Rush, that if you are intrigued by 37 year old men kissing, and think about it a lot, there is actually nothing to worry about. You need not hide it, just talk from the heart, you know?
And as for what “Mr. Man Trump” might do about it? Oh, he’ll probably want to do a lot about it. But then again, it is pretty easy to deflect that type of mean-spirited attack. Perhaps Pete might mention that he has not once had to pay his husband or anyone else for sex. He could say to Trump that – yes, the nation does know what it looks like when he kisses his husband, but that might be better than having a nation which knows what Trump’s – you know – looks like, without having to actually “see it.”
So who is the “Mr. Man” in that situation?
And who is the Mr. Pretend?
I suspect that if the issue ever “arises” between Pete and Trump, one will be far more secure in discussing intimate relations, since Pete simply has a husband in attending the even, while the moderator could read from the double digit sexual assault lawsuits filed against Trump. Or Pete could mention that at least he knows the “one spouse” he has to kiss, and doesn’t have to pick from three. Or if things get really nasty, Pete can mention that he still sleeps in the same bed as his spouse, as opposed to …
Yes, Rush, I do think Pete will be just fine through that exchange. You on the other hand, may be quite fixated on something.
