The Remarkable Effectiveness of Pete Buttigieg on Fox News

This New Yorker opinion piece talks about how Pete Buttigieg (boot-edge-edge) is a gay icon, attacking the #FauxNews directly

A quote from the piece, Emphasis mine

Buttigieg was asked on Fox News about the policy differences between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He replied, “Well, there’s a classic parlor game of trying to find a little bit of daylight between running mates, and if people want to play that game we could look into why an evangelical Christian like Mike Pence wants to be on a ticket with a President caught with a porn star.” Pence, President, porn—he captured the basic deal Republicans had made with power in three tight plosives. (Slayer Pete, Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times named this persona, brilliantly.)

Slayer Pete, with his steady voice and his dogs with their own social-media accounts, and his calmly stated rhetorical bombs that fly under Steve Doocy’s radar and land later, on Twitter, is a figure for a party that assumes it has a moral majority again.
