In an interview with the Washington Post’s Robert Costa, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg appeared to be disgusted and embarrassed by his association with the state of Indiana.

Buttigieg, a Democratic Party candidate for President, said that he’s prepared to deal with President Trump on the debate stage because he has a “familiarity dealing with bullies.” Adding that “I am gay, I am from Indiana,” insinuating that voters from his home state are prone to bully LGBT individuals.

Given Costa’s credentials, I must say I am shocked he did not follow up on this statement by Mayor Buttigieg. Now that Costa works for the Washington Post, this is not surprising.

Exit question – is the Midwest infested with bullies? If so, why is the lame-stream media not reporting on it?
