Chasten called the ad ‘actually very gay!
Appearing on CNN on Sunday morning Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, was asked for his response as one of the most high-profile gay officials in the Biden administration about an ad posted yesterday from Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign that spliced the Florida governor in between pictures of shirtless men while trying to paint Donald Trump as more LGBTQ-friendly.
I’m going to choose my words carefully, partly because I’m appearing as secretary, so I can’t talk about campaigns and I’m going to leave aside the strangeness of trying to prove your manhood by putting up a video that splices images of you in between oiled-up shirtless bodybuilders.
Who are you trying to help? Who are you trying to make better off and what public policies do you get up in the morning thinking about how to solve?”the messenger
Excellent shade from Pete. Saying he’s going to leave aside the homoerotic nature of the DeSantis ad, which actually puts it front and center. He’s a brilliant master of the sly response.
Can we make Pete the permanent spokesperson for the Democratic Party please?
