Mayor Pete Wants To Broker Peace Between Chick-fil-A And The LGBTQ Community

March 27, 2019 / Posted by:

I guess I know who I’m voting for in the presidential primaries! Chick-fil-A hasn’t exactly been a friend to the gay community. For starters, it’s closed on Sundays when most of us are coming home from a good night at the club, and, uh, it doesn’t exactly donate chicken cash to groups known for loving the gay community. Lucky for us, South Bend mayor, gay man, and  residential candidate Pete Buttigieg is here to say let us all live in waffle fry and bigoted chicken harmony!

The Takeout says Mayor Pete was on The Breakfast Club radio show yesterday morning, and they got to talking about what it’s like being a gay man running for president of the U.S. Rather than doing what I’d do and wear booty shorts and have Kylie Minogue’s “Love At First Sight” as my campaign song, Pete is actually trying to appeal to voters on both sides of the aisle with just how damn smart and caring he is. Pete also tries to bridge divides, and that includes the ongoing “Uh, should we boycott Chick-fil-A?” debate:

“I kind of approve of their chicken.So maybe if nothing else I can build that bridge. Maybe I’ll become in a position to broker that peace deal.”

Charlamagne tha God seemed to like that answer and so did I…uh…while nomming a leftover CFA chicken sandwich. Oops. Pete also brought up how pretty wild it is being a gay candidate for president, but he was also pretty sweet about coming out during the middle of a mayoral reelection campaign: “I didn’t want to live a life that was in hiding…you only get to live one life.” Coincidentally, I tell myself the same thing each time I walk into a Chick-fil-A.
