A clip from the Iowa caucuses went viral several days ago on Twitter when an Iowa voter who signed a card to support Pete Buttigieg found out for the first time that he is gay and tried to withdraw her support.


Buttigieg recently went on The View, where he responded to the clip in an inspiring way.

Many online condemned the women in the clip for her closed-mindedness.


But not long after, Buttigieg appeared on The View and responded to the woman's withdrawal of support.

Buttigieg told The View's cohosts:

"Well, what I want her to know is that I'm running to be her president too...Of course, I wish she was able to see that my love is the same as her love for those that she cares about, that my marriage means as much to me as hers if she's married."

Buttigieg continued:

"But if she can't see that, and even if because she can't see that, she won't vote for me, I am still, if I am elected president, going to get up in the morning and try to make the best decisions for her and the people that she loves as I will work to serve every American, whether they supported me or not."

On Twitter, many were inspired by Buttigieg's conciliatory tone.


Bernie Sanders and Buttigieg emerged from Iowa with an almost perfect tie.

Sanders had an edge over Buttigieg in the popular vote, and after many Biden and Klobuchar voters realigned to Pete, Buttigieg took a small lead in pledged delegates.


Many people who haven't supported Pete were impressed by his words.


With Pete Buttigieg one of the frontrunners coming out of Iowa, his words matter now more than ever.

And he's used this opportunity to bring our country together rather than split it apart as a certain President might.

Life can change in an instant.

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

Watching someone's life fall apart in a short amount of time is difficult.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.
