Pete Buttigieg’s same-sex husband, Chasten Buttigieg, told Linsey Davis of ABC News in a report broadcast on Thursday that the time has come to restore “moral leadership” in the White House.

Buttigieg made this point after Davis played for him a clip of Rush Limbaugh saying: “They’ve got to be saying that despite all the great progress and despite all the great wokeness and despite all the great ground that has been covered America’s still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage president.”

“What is your response to it?” she asked.

“I’ve been dealing with this my whole life,” Chasten Buttigieg responded.

“I dealt with a multitude of Rush Limbaughs when I was walking through the hall ways of my high school,” he said.

“You saw that Pete is ready to go toe-to-toe with this president and Pete can take on the likes of Rush Limbaugh,” he said.

“But I am more worried about the kids,” said Pete Buttigieg’s same-sex husband. “I’m more worried about the people in this country who are watching how we treat this candidacy, treat this campaign, and the way we treat people who for so long have been attacked by people like Rush Limbaugh and this president.      

“And I think: It is time for moral leadership to be restored to the White House,” he said. “So when you are ready to share that deepest truth about yourself, when you are ready to step out of the closet you step out into something hopeful and inclusive, and you look up to Washington and you see a president who cares about you and loves you.”
