South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg didn't mince words when calling out the anti-LGBT stances of Vice President Mike Pence and those who think being gay is a choice.
“If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade, and that’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. That if you got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me ― your quarrel, Sir, is with my creator.”
Far-Right Fox News host Laura Ingraham didn't take kindly to that. She took to Twitter calling Buttigieg more self-righteous than Evangelical Christians like Mike Pence.
Ingraham—who has a storied past homophobia herself—was quickly dragged in the tweets responding to her claim that Buttigieg is self-righteous.
But many had kind words for one person mentioned in the tweet.Many tweeted their love for Mayor Pete in response.
Buttigieg's popularity has been surging in the polls and the candidate once seen as a long shot is now considered a force to be reckoned with.
It looks like that has some, like Laura Ingraham, a tad nervous.
