Skip to comments.Trump on Pete Buttigieg's "Marriage": 'I Think It's Great'
Posted on 05/17/2019 7:30:09 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Out of all the criticisms of Donald Trump, the one I've never understood is that he's somehow anti-gay. The Trump/Pence ticket was supposed to have put up conversion-therapy camps all across America by now, right? Yet somehow it hasn't happened. With all the legitimate reasons for a person to oppose Trump, they still keep making stuff up.
Pete Buttigieg has been capitalizing on this, depicting himself as some sort of victim. He wants you to think Trump is oppressing him. He just can't seem to get Trump to play along.
Check out this clip from an interview Trump just gave to Steve Hilton, which will air on Fox News this Sunday night. Hilton asks what Trump thinks of Buttigieg's marriage:

"I think it's absolutely fine... I think it's great. I think it's something that perhaps some people will have a problem with. I have no problem with it whatsoever. I think it's good."
Is that not the right answer, libs?
Now, that's not to say Trump is a big fan of Buttigieg. The other day he referred to Mayor Pete as "Alfred E. Neuman," which is kind of funny. And Buttigieg said he had to Google "Alfred E. Neuman" because he's not old like Trump, which is also kind of funny. But Trump is teasing him for looking like a dork, not for being gay. Trump insults everybody who's a threat to him. It's nothing new, and there's no reason to expect Buttigieg to be exempt.
Besides, isn't Alfred E. Neuman a sort of trickster god, always humiliating people who are too full of themselves? I wouldn't want to mess with Neuman. Take the compliment, Pete.
Great = groß in German. I agree. ButtyGig’s sham marriage is gross.
He’s mouthing the words he knows he has to say. It’s politics. I’m giving him a pass on this.
Not the hill Trump wants to die on.
For better or worse its a fait accompli.
Save the rancor for more pressing issues.
It’s great for Trump’s re-election.
I still think Buttgay looks like Mr. Bean, not Alfred E. Nhuman.
Honestly, don’t like this guy on Policy, and certainly don’t agree with his lifestyle choices, or his attempt to argue that they are sanctified by God...
But, I seriously think he’s way more of a threat than Biden or Bernie... Certainly smarter than either of them.
Trump is so smart, and he’s funny.
Alfred E. Newman.... That’s hilarious...
Yeah he does, but Alfred E. Newman, says a mouth full. Trump is from that generation, like us, who grew up with MAD Magazine.
I had a subscription to it. It was goofy.
I remember, some issues would come with a little 45 record. There was a song, “She’s Got a Nose Job.”
I think the words were:
She’s got a nose job, she’s got a nose jog
And it’s now turned up instead of hanging down.
She’s got a nose job, she’s got nose job
And now she’s the prettiest gal in town.
(Damn still in my head.)
I am good with it too. Get love where ever you can. There is way too little of it in the world.
Trump just put this one to bed
Will not be goaded on it
Frankly the more exposure of Mayor Pete and his husband on the public stage, the better
Let the people decide if this is what they want as a POTUS
Sorry but it is not great. The fact that this deviant homosexual is being taken seriously as a Presidential candidate underscores the extent that decadence and hedonism have permeated America. Note how this deviant celebrates all abortion and even infanticide. Homosexuals are adverse to procreation, everything associated with it, including the baby. Such people are pathological and are not suitable for any public office. They find common ground with feminism which at its core is an antifertility cult. The Democrats are led by these evil homosexuals and feminists. The Democratic Party is an existential threat to the American nation.
I still think Buttgay looks like Mr. Bean, not Alfred E. Neuman.
I will tell you one thing: that man has absolutely no character in his face. It’s a face that has never faced adversity outside of a hangnail. Any American who votes for this invisible man is an idiot.
Yep. More importantly he is denying the media an attack line. I don’t for a moment believe he supports “homosexual marriage”.
“Hes mouthing the words he knows he has to say. Its politics. Im giving him a pass on this.”
I prefer Trumps response than the Beavis and Butthead ones you get here.
RE: I am good with it too. Get love where ever you can
That’s not the issue. If it were simply live and let live, there would have been no problem.
The issue is an has always been this -— ARE THOSE WHO DUE TO THEIR DEEPLY HELD RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, NOT WANT TO RECOGNIZE OR CELEBRATE THIS “MARRIAGE” ( NOTE THE QUOTES ) GOING TO BE FORCED BY GOVERNMENT TO ACCEPT THIS UNION UNDER THREAT OF PUNISHMENT?
Unfortunately, the answer is YES. See what is happening to Bakers in Colorado, Flower Shop owners, Christian Lodge Owners, Christian Photographers, etc.
So, it’s not simply a matter of “tolerance”, it is a matter of government coercion ( AKA intolerance on the side of the homosexuals ).
I found some of my 1960s era issues of Mad Magazine while we were packing to move.
