      He's in darkness. Homosexuality is a sin. Pete needs to be wiling to change or he'll be disappointed for all eternity. The Lord is the same today, yesterday, and forever. His ways don't change, we need to change and resemble Him. We need to be holy for God is Holy. I don't want to see anyone disappointed for all eternity. Jesus Christ is coming. We are the final generation. If you seek Him with all your heart you will find Him. The Lord will speak to you at His time. Once He speaks, obey Him until the end, and stay loyal to Him even unto death, your reward will be with Him in heaven. I've seen Jesus Christ and I've heard His voice. He looks nothing like the famous pictures, and He sounds like a Mighty Lion surrounded by many waterfalls. It's your choice to accept or reject Jesus Christ. Nothing is forced, God gave everyone freewill. If you're willing, now is the time to repent and prepare for the return of the King. He is coming back for a bride without spot,wrinkle or blemish. A holy people who are blameless in all their ways. Everything written in the book of revelation will be fulfilled. We are the last generation.

      I loooooooooove the black girls response to the ass eating comment. This is why my best friends in life have been big black girls .

    3. Vida Hasselburg

      Jaboukie needs to be a total regular on this show

    4. Zion Sime

      So now you separate gay whites and black whites. gay racism???? SMH

    5. August Abraham

      I cannot judge someone who is born the way he/she is born because am not god.


      Shit is Funny Fuck Corona

    7. Kurt Sudheim

      I'm glad to see that most of the comments from people couldn't give a fan about whether he's gay, why does a leader of a group have to be the same gender, age group, religion, etc. as you. I hate that Americans (or at least their media) have done this because it's spreading to the rest of the world

    8. Clarisse Russell

      watching this i just realized that i really do not care that he's gay at all. kinda funny how the whole interview was meant to be about his sexuality but they kept talking about his policies lol

    9. Karo Lina

      Oh man, I missed this segment ...

    10. BG AH

      America becomes more stupid than ever

    11. edwardinchina

      I love that the model from the early Daily Show years that pits a stereotype against real genuine people still gets a positive conversation going. Although I used to work with a guy who acted just like the anchor in real life. What does that mean?

    12. Alicia Gonzalez

      Lol I ain’t gone lie I thought he was gay and he gone say did Kevin tell u 😭😭

    13. VikramR '

      What's Dailly Show trying to stir up?

    14. mikes campfire

      Pete is a good smart man and a veteran. He would of brought morality back to the office. I’m straight almost 61 and a white veteran. Pete’s More of a man than trump will ever be.

    15. Miriam M

      The lighting in this video is amazing

    16. Michael O

      Well...this whole video is moot now, isn’t it?

    17. Lynn Meiger

      Excuse me Berlin !?!?! Hell no. Cologne is the gay capital !!!

    18. Sakura Moore

      LGBTQ community are challenging some very basic and strongly ingrained ideas, including how we use pronouns…to be honest, it is not easy to warp my head around all this…

    19. Sofa

      If these people put as much time into their finances as they did their feelings they’d be millionaires lol.

    20. Arnold Davis

      No gays in office

    21. mightierthenthesword

      I really don't care, all I want is a competent administrator. They can be as gay as they want, so long as they're an effective and capable leader.

    22. Jo S

      Nothing is ever good enough. Not gay enough??? Come on people!!!

    23. Oskar Linke

      I’m bisexual and I wouldn’t vote for Pete if I was American. I’d vote for Sanders no doubt

    24. Caryn D Prescott

      I wonder how many people are going to blame him dropping out on "Black homophobia". That shit happened in 2008 when the gay marriage ban was upheld in California 😒

    25. Caryn D Prescott

      Easy on the eyes and the police 🤣🤣🤣

    26. Peter Danior

      Too bad he's out of the race. And too bad these pieces only focus on the fact that he is gay. They could have done a piece on him being a Veteran. A piece on him wanting to abolish the Electoral College. A piece on him wanting to restructure the Supreme Court so it was no longer a tug of war between the two parties. To make it seem like he is trying to win the "gay vote" is dishonest.

    27. Andy Silva

      I love Jaboukie's segments.

    28. *Uptown*

      Darn, guess they won’t have the chance now.

    29. nonexistent

      Just a note: We've actually had a gay president? Our 15th president, James Buchanan, is the only president to have lived as a "bachelor". However, he did live with and attend all events with William Rufus DeVane King. *They even adopted a fucking child.* (Harriet Lane) The most solid proof of his queerness is a quote from one of his letters saying: _"I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them."_ Just some facts for ya :)

    30. shukezi

      this is stupid. pete is gay enough. as a lesbian, i think it’s absolutely frusterating that the LGBTQ community thinks that pete isn’t gay enough. like jesus, being gay doesn’t have a look or a personality or anything. the whole point of it is that LGBTQ people are the same as straight cis people. can’t we just celebrate that a gay man has gotten this far in the presidential race?

    31. enrique mas

      So when Tommy on Power moved to California he became gay??? (The guy in the pink blazer totally looks like Jason Sikora).

    32. Thad Wuj

      Pete Buttigieg, considered racist because he didn't solve racism.

    33. Charlie

      Conclusion. Why the fuck does his orientation matter. He's not a good politician. Bottom line.

    34. heytheredollfacex


    35. Ashley Sarimana


    36. D. V. Crystal

      I love the people in that focus group

    37. Red King

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="32">0:32</a> What ? How gay be women or (whatever she is) be a sexist.

    38. phanders

      I hate when people are like "hes is hiding his gayness and appealing to cis hetero norms", tf does that even mean? Just because he is not wearing a rainbow boa on him all the time and throwing rainbow sprinkles everywhere he goes does not mean he is proud of who he is + he can still understand trans issues even if he is not trans.

    39. antonio volpe

      Former candidate Buttigieg is backing Biden - case closed

    40. Ishaan Menon

      This is such a sad interview. It could have been so much more. Jabookie fucked up with this. But damn does he look good

    41. wadha A

      The white gay man with red jacket looks to the transgender women said I all

    42. Timothy O'Brien

      Damn! We ate own worst enemies.

    43. Dylan Grant

      I’m gay. I don’t trust Pete. I only trust a heterosexual Jewish man. 😊

    44. Las Vegar

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="122">2:02</a> i axed him, ha hell no she din’t

    45. Colabuss

      He's gay enough ffs, he's just not good enough.

    46. Gautam Sarathy

      I always viewed him as the gay guy your grandparents can be comfortable with. I'm straight, so correct me if I'm wrong.

    47. Tamara Motola

      This kind of BS is why I quit going to community events!

    48. ghluedmo ghlued

      He needs to lip sync for his life , 😂 a flip and a death-drop too

    49. openyoureyesandseethefuture GLM

      It is totally wrong to be gay.....

    50. Haxicle

      Girl: “The takeaway is also that for a lot of voters you can’t just choose gay...” Me: YES FINALLY SOMEONE WHO CARES ABOUT POLICIES Her: “you also have to think about your race” Me: 😡🤬😡🤬🤬🤯🤬🤦‍♂️

    51. Patrick Carroll

      This was terrific.

    52. Rodrigo

      People did not complained that Obama was not was not black enough?

    53. kliudrsfhlih

      gay or not gay it would've been hard to vote for a pro-corp candidate

    54. Edwin Szeto

      He's so adorable

    55. Fiona _

      Aaaaand, now he's out of the race!

    56. SuperSydz

      no need to watch the video. yes they would. jaboukie is just a pete hater.

    57. Hass Hagelyemen

      Bunch of mental patients

    58. SnowAlex

      Outdated already

    59. Rebecca Ramirez Quinonez

      easy on the eyes and the police

    60. D J

      This showed up on my homepage after Buttigieg dropped out

    61. Pogan pey

      This guy is funny

    62. Derrick W.

      Black voters confirmed in 2020 that homophobia is still very prevalent in urban communities. Mayor was an outstanding candidate and would have been a breath of fresh air in a roster of senior citizens. Pete has become a rockstar in the democratic party and I am sure he will be accomplishing great things in the near future,

    63. baby ai

      I'm trans and I'm bisexual. When I first heard about a gay candidate I thought, "That's really cool, maybe he can stand for the community". Then I decided to learn more about him and was like "fuck that". I'm voting for Bernie, case closed.

    64. Mg (Meagan)

      I’m bisexual.., and although I have respect for him for feeling the need to take on that huge role as an LGBTQ+ member himself, it doesn’t change the fact that his and my stances on certain things don’t align... so therefore I’m going to do what I do with every candidate no matter your sexuality, race, or religion.... I’m going to choose who I believe is the best fit for my wants... and Pete just isn’t it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ it’s as simple as that.

    65. Lina J

      Well, that whole video just went to waste

    66. Hugo

      Well, it's pretty obvious we shouldn't be voting for someone just because of his or hers sexual orientation. Representation and diversity is really important, but it cannot be the decisive factor. The racism issues around Pete can't be obscured by the fact that he's gay.

    67. Nunya Damn Bidness

      Lol did she just say gays are not a monolith? Im pissed. Royally pissed!

    68. Nunya Damn Bidness

      I didnt even know he was gay!

    69. John

      With him winning will be least watched President inaugural ever. Two men kissing 🤮

    70. Schnyder

      He dropped out so...

    71. Stefan S

      This video aged like milk

    72. Devin McGregor

      People hate him because he pretends to be progressive but fundraises in winecaves and throws medicare for all under the bus. Policy is more important than identity. Daily Show's comedy is so pedestrian.

    73. Fajar Setiawan

      So sad this video only came several days before Pete withdrew his campaign.

    74. Eden Anadyomene

      no we're voting for Bernie

    75. Asa Schiller

      Oof dated now

    76. Mara More

      Vote Tulsi Gabbard for president peace planet prosperity www.Tulsi2020.com

    77. Utkarsh Singh

      Here after he dropped out

    78. La Chivis

      I hope they join and support Biden now.

    79. Margarita M.

      One shouldn’t vote for a person (an image), one should vote for policies. There’s nothing progressive in PB except the fact he is a gay candidate. We need a person fighting for our rights, not keeping the status quo. I’m a young black woman and I’m voting for an old white guy who has the record of standing up for marginalised people. Go Bernie!

      1. dumb thicc wizard

        The person has to be solid or you can't trust that they'll enact the policies. They can't put forth every conceivable policy before the election so you have to trust the person's judgment and resources If Bernie encounters a situation where he is out of his depth, like certain conversations about abortion for instance, I trust him to consult with people who have skin in the game so he can make the best decisions possible In general the only people you can rely on to be informed are people who have a dog in the fight. That's why gay people expect solid representation from gay candidates. It's not "identity politics" it's just probability. People like Bernie don't come along that often in politics or it wouldn't matter as much that there aren't very many marginalized people in gov positions. Because old white cishet Christian men would take some initiative and investigate things that don't apply to them

    80. Clif Vaughn

      How about this? "Gay: It's really just who I'm fuckin..."🤣🤣🤣
