Buttigieg: ‘Almost Certain’ America’s Had A Gay President, Backfires Big Time

Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is the new Democratic darling running for president. He just claimed if he won the presidency, he would not be the first gay man to hold the highest office in the land. Mayor Pete said he is “almost certain” America has already had a gay Commander in Chief. That statement backfired… big time.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said it’s “almost certain” he would not be the first gay man to serve as President of the United States if elected in 2020. Buttigieg made the comment on Sunday during an interview with Axios on HBO when asked how he would respond to someone saying he was “too young, too liberal, [or] too gay to be commander-in-chief.”

“I’ll respond by explaining where I want to lead this country,” the Democrat hopeful said. “People will elect the person who will make the best president.”

“We have had excellent presidents who have been young,” Buttigieg continued. “We have had excellent presidents who have been liberal. I would imagine we’ve probably had excellent presidents who were gay — we just didn’t know which ones.”

When asked by the show’s host, Mike Allen, if he believed that America already “had a gay commander-in-chief” in the past, Buttigieg said, “statistically, it’s almost certain.” He added, however, that he wasn’t able to identify which of the Oval Office occupants might have been gay.

“My gaydar even doesn’t work that well in the present, let alone retroactively,” Buttigieg said. “But one can only assume that’s the case.”

Buttigieg’s sexuality has been a frequent topic on the campaign trail, especially in defense of his lack of political experience.

“I’m a gay man from Indiana, I know how to deal with a bully,” Buttigieg said in February when asked if he was capable of going toe-to-toe with President Donald Trump in a general election.

Well, immediately the internet was on fire with speculation about who was the gay president. The overwhelming winner was Barack Obama. Of course, we take this with a grain of salt. However, rumors of Barack’s possible gayness have been around for quite some time by some surprising sources.

Vice News which has a deal with HBO came out with an article in 2012 citing Harvard educated lawyer and investigator Jerome Corsi’s book The Obama Nation. That’s the same Jerome Corsi who was interrogated by Robert Mueller in the Trump investigation.

According to Vice News, Corsi became convinced there was something to Obama’s gayness after Larry Sinclair, a somewhat shady character who claims he had two gay encounters with Obama in the 1990s, was given a big judgment in his favor about his claims by a federal judge.

“Yeah, I didn’t believe everything [Larry Sinclair] said, but his story was always consistent,” said Corsi. “Also, a guy called Daniel Parisi brought a defamation case against Larry for writing the book [about his gay encounters with Obama], but a federal district judge threw it out of court, which isn’t to say Larry was telling the truth, but this judge clearly didn’t think he was lying either. That was the turning point for me.”

Also noteworthy in this article is Corsi’s claim that Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in Benghazi, was gay. We all know now he was gay, but it looks like at the time it was a cover-up, and Corsi called it right.

“I didn’t say he was gay outright, I just said there was a lot of evidence that suggested he was gay,” Corsi told Vice News about Ambassador Stevens in 2012. “Also, Obama’s state department is very heavily recruiting LGBT for foreign service,” Corsi added.

We were shocked that so many Americans also believe there is something to these claims about Obama.

“Yes we all know Obama is gay. Duh. Whatever. We still don’t want either Buttigieg or O in elected office, and it has nothing to do with your sexuality,” tweeted Blame Jane.

“Buttigieg says he probably wouldn’t be first gay president. We’re it not for the well-documented case of Obama, I’d say you could remove statistician, from Buttigiegs shortlist of credentials. GO mathematically challenged candidates!” tweeted “DroneSoros.”

“Did @PeteButtigieg just out @BarackObama & insult Obama’s father in same interview?” tweeted Stephen Sacks.

“Well he is kind-a right… I mean we all should know by now that BHO was Bi-sexual. Where did Reggie Love get to?” tweeted Laura G. Greenwood.

“#Obama be looking around like, oh no you didn’t …” tweeted Don Everson.

Mayor Pete was hoping to shock Americans with his claim that he was certain we have already had a gay president. Well, this really backfired right in his face.

Americans aren’t shocked by his gayness, at all. What we are getting sick and tired of is his identity politics and using his gayness as a weapon. Mayor Pete is part of the far-left movement that is hoping to tie gay rights to civil rights, and the majority of Americans are appalled by this. Gays cannot claim special status as they have the same exact rights as all Americans.

Heterosexuals don’t run around screaming about their sexual orientation, and we are tired of the gays pushing their sexual orientation in our face as some badge of honor.
