Buttigieg has defined that he feared popping out publicly might have ended his profession and had him booted from the navy.
Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten Buttigieg, derided Carlson for going after the “easy,” ugly smear in his look on “CNN This Morning.”
“This kind of rhetoric is easy. It’s so easy to attack people and to go on your talk show and fire people up about something that’s not actually happening,” he informed CNN’s Don Lemon.
“With these megaphones, they have a big platform,” he added, referring to right-wing media personalities. “Rather than focusing on real issues, people’s lives, making them better, they’ve decided to focus on hate.”
He identified that his husband served beneath the “don’t ask, don’t tell” coverage that will have resulted in his discharge from the navy had he introduced he was homosexual.
