Pete Buttigieg fires back at right-wing Christians like Mike Pence for calling his marriage ‘sinful’

Published

on

Evangelical pastor Franklin Graham has called on Pete Buttigieg to “repent” for being gay — but the Indiana mayor had the perfect response.

The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart asked Buttigieg to comment on Graham describing his marriage as a “sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized,” which is a view shared by Vice President Mike Pence.

“I guess I would say that we all have a lot to repent for,” Buttigieg said, after a pause.

“I have a lot to repent for when it comes to my marriage,” he added. “Moments when I have not been as caring as I should be, moments when I’ve been selfish, moments when I’ve said a harsh word that I wish I could take back. But one thing that I absolutely should not be repentant for in the context of my marriage is the fact that I’m in love with my husband.”

His response drew sustained applause from the audience at the New York City event.

In a tweet on Friday, O'Brien complained that cable new networks were continuing to book the former White house communications director even though he has little of substance to add to the discussions.

"Why do you guys put this crap on tv?" O'Brien wrote after seeing an interview with Scaramucci. "Seriously it’s an insult to your viewers. And also absurd. Is there no one else in the whole world to book but this mediocre dude?"

Scaramucci's wife, Deidre, was moved to criticize O'Brien.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Sunday called for a "retaliatory strike on Iran" after Trump administration officials alleged that the country is behind attacks on oil tankers.

"Well, Iran for 40 years has engaged in this kind of attacks, going back to 1980s," Cotton told CBS host Margaret Brennan.

"These unprovoked attacks a warrant retaliatory strikes," he added. "We can make a military response in the time and matter of our choosing."

"A retaliatory strike?" Brennan pressed. "As someone who sits in Congress, do you believe that he can act, the administration can act without coming to Congress first?"

CNN’s Santorum humiliated by laughing panel after claiming Russians would never offer election help

Published

on

CNN analyst Rick Santorum stepped in it on Sunday morning after he tried to dismiss Donald Trump's comments about accepting foreign help, with the former GOP senator claiming it never happens.

That made the entire "State of the Union" panel bust out laughing while shouting over each other to remind him of Donald Trump Jr's meeting with Russian operatives at Trump Tower in 2016.

Asked about the Trump comments, the former Republican senator rolled his eyes at the notion of Russians making overtures to presidential candidates.

"That is not how it would come," Santorum asserted. "No foreign government could come to your campaign and say 'I'm the Russian government --'" he began before the entire panel exploded.
