Buttigieg hits back at Trump and Limbaugh, saying, ‘I’ve never transferred hush money’

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has again targeted President Trump over the issue of “family esteems” by bringing up that his marriage has never included him paying “quiet cash to a pornography star.”

As per The Guardian, Buttigieg, who came out as gay in 2015 and wedded his better half, Chasten Buttigieg, in 2018, has been the subject of late homophobic remarks by radio host Rush Limbaugh, who said, his audiences were “yet not willing to elect a gay person kissing his spouse on the stage of the presidential debate.”

Limbaugh, who was facing controversy since Trump gave him the presidential medal of freedom, stated the US president advised him to “never apologize” for his remarks.

Questioned on if he believed Trump would not be disagreeing with a president coming from the LGBTQ+ people group, Buttigieg answered: “Well, not if he’s sending out his supporters to speak in this manner, stated during a CNN town hall in Las Vegas.

“What’s more, look, I mean, the possibility of the likes of Donald Trump or Rush Limbaugh addressing anyone on family esteems,” the Democratic presidential candidate said to applause, Buttigieg included.

Buttigieg then made a sharp reference to the cash paid to porno star Stormy Daniels by Trump through his former legal advisor Michael Cohen. “I mean, I’m sorry; however, one thing about my marriage is it’s never included me sending hush cash to a pornography star in the wake of cheating my husband with him or her,” he said.

“So they need to discuss family esteems? We should debate family esteems. I’m ready.” he added.

According to The Guardian, it is the second time that Buttigieg has conflicted with Trump during the week over his private life and Limbaugh’s remarks. On Sunday, the former South Bend mayor stated that he was “disheartened for what the Republican party has turned into if they agree to that sort of homophobic speech.”

Bernie Sanders Wins Popular Vote

Bernie Sanders Wins Popular Vote

Bernie Sanders has won in the New Hampshire Primary election, creating a place for himself towards the race for the presidential elections. However, Vermont senator has been able to narrowly beat Pete Buttigieg with Amy Klobuchar coming in third position.
Unfortunately, Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren have been left behind in the race with having won only 10 percent of the votes in New Hampshire.

He is a 78-year-old self-described democratic socialist who truly believes in a united country. His win is looking strong enough for him to propel him into contests in Nevada and South Carolina, two states where he lost to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential primary. That year, Mr. Sanders easily won in New Hampshire with more than 60% of the vote.

A tilt towards Sanders has come as the public has seen some reason in sane leadership and decided to shift their vote from Trump to more mature leadership.
Warren and Biden could not win the trust of the place they were campaigning in. And then made the biggest mistake to have played down the significance of this state, with the former vice president leaving early to attend a campaign party in South Carolina.
Exit polls released by television networks indicated that nearly half—48%—of New Hampshire voters surveyed made their decision within the past few days, another indication of a dynamic electorate.

Biden has not had a good fate in Iowa also. However, he is banking on some magic to happen in the March session of elections. He has been popular amongst black voters hoping for a strong swinging in South Carolina. To see all the latest News of America Today .

Sanders And Buttigieg Lock Horns

A political stalwart is in loggerheads with a roughly half the age military veteran and both are eyeing the Democratic nomination for the presidential post in the White House. This refers to none other than Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.

Both rivals took two top spots at the Iowa caucuses where 37 years young
Buttigieg bagged 14 delegates while the 78 years of age, Sanders bagged 12 delegates. One is trailing the other by small margins. Political analysts rightly observe that the numbers are low in terms of the total a candidate would need to secure the nomination. But this little win in their kitty does provide critical early momentum.

New Hampshire is the next pit stop for the other 9 contenders who all have been troubled with the low turnout of voters at the Iowa caucus. New Hampshire is of the many states which will need to be won by one of these contenders to get a majority to be able to contest the presidential elections for 2020.

Buttigieg speaks of the future. If elected, he would be the first open gay president in the world. Also, while referring to Trump, he drew applause in New Hampshire when he said “we need a politics that works for us and brings us together.” He was definitely referring to Trump’s allegiance to lobbies of all kinds that have funded his campaigns and other agendas.

But Sanders have hit it back saying that “Because we bring forth an agenda that doesn’t ask for approval from Wall Street, or the drug companies, our agenda is the agenda that represents working families.” Sanders had referred to Buttigieg of taking millions off billionaires.
Joe Biden on the other hand will steer clear of the open fight between Sanders and Buttigieg. Biden, who had fewer events scheduled on Sunday than his rivals, conceded he was out-organized by Sanders and Buttigieg in Iowa. He reiterated his long-standing belief that he would perform better in states with more African Americans and other voters of color, including upcoming contests in Nevada and South Carolina.For more News of America Today

Biden Lags Behind In Mid Campaign Results

Biden Lags Behind In Mid Campaign Results

By Uttara Malhotra.

Donors and voters are moving away from Joe Biden. There is no escaping this reality. This could be seen in Iowa and New Hampshire. Despite his robust campaigning, the results have not come out the way he had expected. Some are saying there is probably a flaw in the party’s election system.

Biden’s advisors now have to deal with the damp results. Biden was seen to be on fourth position in Monday’s what is being called a ‘chaotic’ caucuses based on the results that were calculated half way.

Results were partially released a day later. His advisors are compelled to feel that the campaign from the beginning had “considerable flaws” becoming the responsibility of the state Democratic Party and evidently showing a flaw in the reporting system. His campaign’s general counsel urged the state party on Monday night to withhold any official results until campaigns had received “full explanations” on “methods of quality control.”

It is now confirmed that Biden in trailing Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. His advisors had warned him not to bank on the New Hampshire votes, because they have a background of supporting candidates from New England. Apparently, three contenders this time hail from New England itself.

Biden had started to feel a ray of hope when the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers promised their support to Biden. A strong union of 775,000 members has endorsed his campaign, giving him more labor support ahead of the New Hampshire vote. The ripple effect can come down to other states as well. This includes Nevada and South Carolina as well. Further, But poor showings at the start of the calendar could give his rivals an opening with black voters while the party’s centrist voters may consider billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has poured more than $300 million into his campaign and focused on states beginning in March.
