Not sure Pete Buttigieg is ready to be President. But the man can speak. “They cared about whether my M-4 was locked and loaded, not whether I was going home to a girlfriend or a boyfriend.”

 

Maybe it’s just me but do wonder if food police have gone too far when you see “Gluten-free” on a plain chocolate bar.
