Pete Buttigieg Turned Down Tom Ford's Offer to Turn Him Into a Character From American Psycho

Pete Buttigieg Turned Down Tom Ford's Offer to Turn Him Into a Character From American Psycho

Tom Ford has done exactly one nice thing in recent memory: offer Pete Buttigieg a liferaft amidst a sea of slacks and blue ties. In a new Vogue profile, the fashion designer reveals that he met the presidential candidate at a campaign lunch early in the race. (As Vogue explains: “He is a huge fan.”) Despite the “silken rhetoric” Buttigieg professed onstage, however, Ford was distracted by the...

Define 'Homophobic'

Define 'Homophobic'

Imagine my surprise when late last week, I, an out gay man, found myself enrolled in an online course on homophobia that was attempting to teach me something I didn’t know. I thought I’d seen it all: the withering glances, the systemic discrimination, the suffering in places that were worse off than us even at our worst, the well-meaning people saying with loving pity that it’s not my fault...

I Spent a Week Interrogating My Dislike of Pete Buttigieg and These Are My Findings

I Spent a Week Interrogating My Dislike of Pete Buttigieg and These Are My Findings

It was the Vogue profile of Pete Buttigieg that did me in. Early on, when the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, first announced the formation of an exploratory committee and then formally tossed his hat in the ring for the presidential nomination, I dismissed him as a forgettable center-left Democrat in the style of Cory Booker, who was also barely registering in the polls. Certainly...

Pete Buttigieg in 60 Seconds: He's Somehow Still Polling Well

Do you wish you knew more about every Democrat running for president?

Pete and Beto Walk Into an Airport

What happens when the new golden boy of the 2020 Election cycle crosses paths with the season’s old fling ? You get this mildly awkward photo of Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg at the Atlanta Airport.

Is this how the punk versus prep wars end?

Pete Buttigieg Increasingly Sounds Like That Guy You Hated in College

Pete Buttigieg Increasingly Sounds Like That Guy You Hated in College

Pete Buttigieg, who is enjoying a surge in the polls for no apparent reason, is the subject of a New Yorker profiling documenting Buttigieg’s time as a Rhodes Scholar. In 2005, the then-23-year-old Harvard graduate’s greatness reportedly stood out, so much so that one of his fellow Rhodes recipients recalled thinking, “Holy shit, I’m out of my depth,” upon seeing him participate in a...

This week, presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was in New York, a city currently in the midst of a public health emergency declared in response to a measles outbreak . Sadly, it seemed Buttigieg was too busy watching Al Sharpton eat dry toast to pay much heed to what’s been going on here.

What Do Democrats Actually Mean by 'Criminal Justice Reform'?

During a CNN Town Hall earlier this week, Senator Kamala Harris was asked if people in prison should have the right to vote. Harris responded that, “I think we should have that conversation.” But less than 24 hours later it seemed at least part of that conversation had already happened: “Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists, should be deprived of their rights?...

We Asked Design Experts What They Think About Pete Buttigieg the Brand

On Monday, the former McKinsey consultant, Afghanistan combat veteran, mayor of South Bend, and now presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, who has clawed his way up early polls despite—or as is more likely, because of—his aversion to pesky things like policy details, debuted a new logo, a shiny new website, and a design toolkit meant to allow his “grassroots movement” to create their very...

Yer a Wizard, Bernie 

Yer a Wizard, Bernie 

There are many factors to consider when deciding which presidential candidate deserves your vote. Apparently, for some people, Hogwarts house placement is one of those factors.

According to his husband, Indiana mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was deemed a Hufflepuff after taking the Pottermore sorting quiz. That tracks, but we here at Jezebel want the voters to be as...
