During the sixth round of Democratic debates Thursday, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg told Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., he was fit to run for president because he won an election in “Mike Pence’s Indiana.”
“We should have someone heading up this ticket that has actually won and has been able to show that they can gather the support that you talk about. Like moderate Republicans and Independents, as well as a fired-up Democratic base. And not just done it once, I have done it three times. I think winning matters,” Klobuchar said.
“If you want to talk about the capacity to win, try putting together a coalition to bring you back to office with 80 percent of the vote, as a gay dude in Mike Pence’s Indiana,” Buttigieg said.

Here are some pictures of Buttigieg “struggling” in Indiana when Pence was governor.

Buttigieg did not come out as homosexual until years after he was elected mayor in the town of South Bend, population 100,000. The first election Buttigieg ran for after disclosing his sexual behavior was for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, an election that did not take place in Indiana.
Even if Buttigieg ran for re-election in South Bend, he wouldn’t be running in “Mike Pence’s Indiana,” because South Bend is a historically blue city. Every mayor since 1972 has been a Democrat and in the 2016 election, South Bend was one of only four counties that voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Further, and perhaps obviously, Pence no longer holds office in Indiana.
Pence in fact presided over the Republican state legislature’s capitulation to pro-LGBT business interests, who snowballed a state version of the Bill Clinton-signed Religious Freedom Restoration Act into special legal protections for people who claim an LGBT designation. As Dennis Saffran explained in 2015 in these pages:
In caving to corporate and elite pressure to ‘fix’ Indianas Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Gov. Mike Pence and the rest of the states laughingstock Republican leadership have ironically bungled into amending it in a way that now makes Indiana the most hostile state in the country to the conscience rights the original law was designed to protect.
The hastily and stupidly crafted amendment they enacted during Holy Week provides that Indianas RFRA can never be used as a defense in any gay rights or other civil rights proceeding by anyone other than a clergyman, church, or religious institution.
Buttigieg vastly overstated his credibility and record of bringing together diverse coalitions and winning elections. He’s also giving a false portrayal of Pence and state Republicans’ actions that created legal preferences for LGBT people over people of faith, even though Pence often gives the opposite impression of his own record while out giving speeches.
Just keep telling yourself that.
I can win the Presidency because Im a Gay Man in Mike Pences...
Wait for it....
Mrs. Pence, wait for it...
Sigh of relief.
Butt-Edge-edge is just setting the table for his discrimination lawsuit when he loses the race. LOL
The suspense was killing me, LOL
Indiana picks who becomes the POTUS?
Do they have 271 Electoral Votes?
I wish these queers would just go back in the closet.

Do we want this seriously delusional character in the White House?
No, we don’t.
Butt Judge wouldn’t even win Indiana.
He is the mayor of the forth largest (and blue) city in “Mike Pence’s Indiana.” Let’s see how he would fare statewide.
So, any gay dude in Indiana can defeat Trump?
He wouldn’t carry more than a few counties that have major universities.
HOORAY Chrissy Clark! LOL! They’re still shoving Peter down our throats? Some crackers like it, right Peter? The bros...not so much. The ladies/women not much either, although some might feel less threatened than dealing with “toxic masculinity”. Be respectful of your girlfriends/spouses, men. Thanks.

My Response to Christianity Today:
Christianity Today released an editorial stating that President Trump should be removed from officeand they invoked my fathers name (I suppose to try to bring legitimacy to their statements), so I feel it is important for me to respond. Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today; but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. In fact, he would be very disappointed. I have not previously shared who my father voted for in the past election, but because of this article, I feel it is necessary to share it now. My father knew Donald Trump, he believed in Donald Trump, and he voted for Donald Trump. He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation.
For Christianity Today to side with the Democrat Party in a totally partisan attack on the President of the United States is unfathomable. Christianity Today failed to acknowledge that not one single Republican voted with the Democrats to impeach the President. I know a number of Republicans in Congress, and many of them are strong Christians. If the President were guilty of what the Democrats claimed, these Republicans would have joined with the Democrats to impeach him. But the Democrats were not even unanimoustwo voted against impeachment and one voted present. This impeachment was politically motivated, 100% partisan. Why would Christianity Today choose to take the side of the Democrat left whose only goal is to discredit and smear the name of a sitting president? They want readers to believe the Democrat leadership rather than believe the President of the United States.
Look at all the President has accomplished in a very short time. The economy of our nation is the strongest it has been in 50 years, ISIS & the caliphate have been defeated, and the President has renegotiated trade deals to benefit all Americans. The list of accomplishments is long, but for me as a Christian, the fact that he is the most pro-life president in modern history is extremely importantand Christianity Today wants us to ignore that, to say it doesnt count? The President has been a staunch defender of religious freedom at home and around the worldand Christianity Today wants us to ignore that? Also the President has appointed conservative judges in record numberand Christianity today wants us to ignore that? Christianity Today feels he should be removed from office because of false accusations that the President emphatically denies.
Christianity Today said its time to call a spade a spade. The spade is thisChristianity Today has been used by the left for their political agenda. Its obvious that Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism.
Is President Trump guilty of sin? Of course he is, as were all past presidents and as each one of us are, including myself. Therefore, lets pray for the President as he continues to lead the affairs of our nation.
Pete is a Deepstate CIA plant and that’s the only reason he’s treated as a serious candidate despite a paper thin resumé.
