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.

Books are life. Recently studies have been published that reading for fun, reading for knowledge, just interest in reading in general is down, and that is a tragedy.

We've become too obsessed with our binge watching and ADHD mindset that we've lost focus on one of life's greatest joys... literature.

There are some stories and books that should be a mandatory read for life. There should be age benchmarks that require knowledge of certain books in order to progress. I know, how "1984" of me. ;)

Redditor u/bugtanks33d wanted to hear about what literature we should all be familiar with sooner than later by asking:

What's a book everyone should read at least once in their lives?

It's always our high school dreams, as shown by every high school teen movie ever, to marry the popular girl or the jock. But high school is high school for a reason; life does not really last outside of the walls of high school in the way it did within.
