Buttigieg appears on 'Late Show,' weighs in on national news

By  | 

NEW YORK (WNDU) - Thursday was another busy day in the national spotlight for South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

He started the day with appearances on MSNBC and CNN and ended with Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show."

While talking to Colbert, Buttigieg blasted Vice President Mike Pence, saying being gay isn't a choice.

"I mean, he has written cigarettes don't kill and seems to believe the universe was created a few years ago and that people like me get up in the morning and decide to be gay," Buttigieg said. "And the thing is, if that was a choice, it was a choice made way above my pay grade."

Colbert also asked Buttigieg about President Donald Trump's decision to declare a national emergency on border security.

Buttigieg pointed to severe flooding our area has seen in the past few years, saying climate change is a real national emergency.
