Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is a leftist who tries very hard to come off as someone from the midwest with traditional American values. But Pete is a hypocrite. Especially when he talks about God.
During an interview with the Today show on Tuesday, he said that God would have no political party. Then immediately suggested God would never be a Republican.
FOX News reports:
Buttigieg says religion shouldn’t be a ‘cudgel,’ then suggests God wouldn’t be a Republican
South Bend mayor and 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg said Tuesday he believed that religion shouldn’t be used as a political “cudgel,” but then immediately suggested that God wouldn’t be a Republican.
Buttigieg has often discussed his faith on the campaign trail, which NBC’s Craig Melvin mentioned during an interview that aired on “The Today Show” Tuesday.
“You also spend a fair amount of time talking about your faith… why?” Melvin asked.
“It’s important to me,” Buttigieg responded. “I think it’s also important that we stop seeing religion used as a kind of cudgel, as if God belonged to a political party. If he did, I can’t imagine it would be the one that sent the current president into the White House.”

People on Twitter have been having a field day with this:
“God has no political party. Also God is a Democrat.” https://t.co/0EVxZ9mWgk

Buttigieg has either never read the Old Testament or lacks imagination.

And of course, the media will never call him out for this.
It must be nice to be a Democrat.
