Vice President Mike Pence criticized South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg for calling out the VP’s infamously antigay stances.

Pence, who was the governor of Indiana, said on CNBC’s Squawk Box that Buttigieg “knows him better” and was trying to make waves in a swelling Democratic field.

Buttigieg responded to the Vice President’s assertion in a recent appearance on Ellen and his response was classic Mayor Pete.

Buttigieg said:

“I’m not interested in feuding with the Vice President, but if he wanted to clear this up, he could come out today and say that he’s changed his mind, that it shouldn’t be legal to discriminate against anybody in this country for who they are.”

Buttigieg went on to describe that his religion, unlike what many speculate about Pence’s, was “a message that is fundamentally about love, about love and humility.” His comments were met with applause from the audience.

As did Twitter.

And it looks like the Buttigieg phenomenon won’t be ending any time soon.
