Buttigieg Seems Pretty Sure We’ve Already Had a Gay President

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, appearing in an interview on Axios on HBO, claims the country ‘almost certainly’ has already had a gay President, but declined to identify anyone in particular.

Buttigieg, who is himself openly gay, was responding to questions about certain traits affecting his electability.

He was asked what his response would be to somebody saying he might be “too young, too liberal, [or] too gay to be commander-in-chief.”

“I’ll respond by explaining where I want to lead this country,” he replied. “People will elect the person who will make the best president.”

Good Answer But …

Mayor Pete started by deflecting the issue of his sexuality being important to voters. That is the right answer – refusing to make sexual preference an issue.

Buttigieg, however, then decided to make it an issue by tossing out some eyebrow-raising comments.

 

“We have had excellent presidents who have been young,” he added. “We have had excellent presidents who have been liberal. I would imagine we’ve probably had excellent presidents who were gay — we just didn’t know which ones.”

Buttigieg, pressed further, explained that it’s just a matter of probability. We must have had a gay President in the past, you see, because “statistically, it’s almost certain.”

Simple Math

If we’re emulating overall demographics to insinuate 2 of the previous 45 Presidents had to be gay (based on a Gallup survey in 2018 that stated 4.5 percent of the population identified as LGBT) then using the same reasoning (and statistics from that same year), 22 of our past commanders-in-chief must have secretly been women. ?

Logic doesn’t seem to be his strong point. And this is the guy the liberal media is anointing as the level-headed, next iteration of Barack Obama.

Buttigieg declined to point fingers at who he thought might have been a gay president.

“My gaydar even doesn’t work that well in the present, let alone retroactively,” Buttigieg deadpanned. “But one can only assume that’s the case.”

If President Trump made an assumption this wild, the media would have fact-checked him in real time. Instead, expect nobody to bat an eye over these comments.

Using It As an Issue

Again, while Buttigieg initially stated that his private life shouldn’t affect who the people view as capable of running the country, he sure does like to talk about this issue an awful lot.

In an interview with CNN in February, the mayor said his experiences as a gay man would actually help him beat Trump.

“I’m a gay man from Indiana, I know how to deal with a bully,” he announced.

Last month he asserted that he has more traditional views on marriage than the current President.

“If somebody who wants to raise the question of which one of us has the more traditional attitude on marriage we can have that fight,” Buttigieg argued.

Very recently he accused the black church of not being accepting and understanding of LGBT issues.
