On Tuesday evening, Fox News host Tucker Carlson discussed the "new Dem darling," South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
"They want to consume him, like a hearty stew," said Tucker Carlson in a low, slow voice. "Every last drop of Buttigieg. Yum. They're all in."
Many commentators were creeped out by Carlson's words. Others saw it as a veiled attack on Buttigieg's sexual orientation.

@JordanUhl I'm sensing a serious man-crush. Sorry, Tucker. Mayor Pete is an absolute delight, but he's happily married.— Grammarccrritchie 📖📚 (@Grammarccrritchie 📖📚) 1555460008.0
