    I'm glad to see that most of the comments from people couldn't give a fan about whether he's gay, why does a leader of a group have to be the same gender, age group, religion, etc. as you. I hate that Americans (or at least their media) have done this because it's spreading to the rest of the world

    watching this i just realized that i really do not care that he's gay at all. kinda funny how the whole interview was meant to be about his sexuality but they kept talking about his policies lol

    I love that the model from the early Daily Show years that pits a stereotype against real genuine people still gets a positive conversation going. Although I used to work with a guy who acted just like the anchor in real life. What does that mean?

    Pete is a good smart man and a veteran. He would of brought morality back to the office. I’m straight almost 61 and a white veteran. Pete’s More of a man than trump will ever be.

    LGBTQ community are challenging some very basic and strongly ingrained ideas, including how we use pronouns…to be honest, it is not easy to warp my head around all this…

    If these people put as much time into their finances as they did their feelings they’d be millionaires lol.

    I really don't care, all I want is a competent administrator. They can be as gay as they want, so long as they're an effective and capable leader.

    I’m bisexual and I wouldn’t vote for Pete if I was American. I’d vote for Sanders no doubt

  • Caryn D Prescott

    I wonder how many people are going to blame him dropping out on "Black homophobia". That shit happened in 2008 when the gay marriage ban was upheld in California 😒

    Too bad he's out of the race. And too bad these pieces only focus on the fact that he is gay. They could have done a piece on him being a Veteran. A piece on him wanting to abolish the Electoral College. A piece on him wanting to restructure the Supreme Court so it was no longer a tug of war between the two parties. To make it seem like he is trying to win the "gay vote" is dishonest.

    I love Jaboukie's segments.

    Darn, guess they won’t have the chance now.

    Just a note: We've actually had a gay president? Our 15th president, James Buchanan, is the only president to have lived as a "bachelor". However, he did live with and attend all events with William Rufus DeVane King. *They even adopted a fucking child.* (Harriet Lane) The most solid proof of his queerness is a quote from one of his letters saying: _"I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them."_ Just some facts for ya :)

  • shukezi

    this is stupid. pete is gay enough. as a lesbian, i think it’s absolutely frusterating that the LGBTQ community thinks that pete isn’t gay enough. like jesus, being gay doesn’t have a look or a personality or anything. the whole point of it is that LGBTQ people are the same as straight cis people. can’t we just celebrate that a gay man has gotten this far in the presidential race?

    So when Tommy on Power moved to California he became gay??? (The guy in the pink blazer totally looks like Jason Sikora).

    Pete Buttigieg, considered racist because he didn't solve racism.

    Conclusion. Why the fuck does his orientation matter. He's not a good politician. Bottom line.

  • phanders

    I hate when people are like "hes is hiding his gayness and appealing to cis hetero norms", tf does that even mean? Just because he is not wearing a rainbow boa on him all the time and throwing rainbow sprinkles everywhere he goes does not mean he is proud of who he is + he can still understand trans issues even if he is not trans.

    Black voters confirmed in 2020 that homophobia is still very prevalent in urban communities. Mayor was an outstanding candidate and would have been a breath of fresh air in a roster of senior citizens. Pete has become a rockstar in the democratic party and I am sure he will be accomplishing great things in the near future,

    I'm trans and I'm bisexual. When I first heard about a gay candidate I thought, "That's really cool, maybe he can stand for the community". Then I decided to learn more about him and was like "fuck that". I'm voting for Bernie, case closed.

  • Mg (Meagan)

    I’m bisexual.., and although I have respect for him for feeling the need to take on that huge role as an LGBTQ+ member himself, it doesn’t change the fact that his and my stances on certain things don’t align... so therefore I’m going to do what I do with every candidate no matter your sexuality, race, or religion.... I’m going to choose who I believe is the best fit for my wants... and Pete just isn’t it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ it’s as simple as that.

  • Lina J
    Lina J

    Well, that whole video just went to waste

  • Hugo

    Well, it's pretty obvious we shouldn't be voting for someone just because of his or hers sexual orientation. Representation and diversity is really important, but it cannot be the decisive factor. The racism issues around Pete can't be obscured by the fact that he's gay.

    Lol did she just say gays are not a monolith? Im pissed. Royally pissed!

    People hate him because he pretends to be progressive but fundraises in winecaves and throws medicare for all under the bus. Policy is more important than identity. Daily Show's comedy is so pedestrian.

    One shouldn’t vote for a person (an image), one should vote for policies. There’s nothing progressive in PB except the fact he is a gay candidate. We need a person fighting for our rights, not keeping the status quo. I’m a young black woman and I’m voting for an old white guy who has the record of standing up for marginalised people. Go Bernie!

    • dumb thicc wizard
      dumb thicc wizard

      The person has to be solid or you can't trust that they'll enact the policies. They can't put forth every conceivable policy before the election so you have to trust the person's judgment and resources If Bernie encounters a situation where he is out of his depth, like certain conversations about abortion for instance, I trust him to consult with people who have skin in the game so he can make the best decisions possible In general the only people you can rely on to be informed are people who have a dog in the fight. That's why gay people expect solid representation from gay candidates. It's not "identity politics" it's just probability. People like Bernie don't come along that often in politics or it wouldn't matter as much that there aren't very many marginalized people in gov positions. Because old white cishet Christian men would take some initiative and investigate things that don't apply to them

    How about this? "Gay: It's really just who I'm fuckin..."🤣🤣🤣

    So all I got from this is that they want to be oppressed because they feel left out
