Rush Limbaugh continued his attacks on former Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s sexuality.

While discussing the Democratic presidential primary on his radio show yesterday, he listed the faults of each of the contenders.

When he got to “booty judge” (yes, Limbaugh is 69-years-old, was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom this year, and calls Buttigieg “booty judge”), he described him as: “A gay guy, 37-years-old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump have fun with that?”

He talked a bit more about the primary in general and then got back to Buttigieg, saying again that he “loves to kiss his husband.”

“OK, how’s this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump,” he continued. “What’s going to happen there?”

Limbaugh said that the “grand poobahs in the Democrat Party” are saying that “despite all the great progress and despite all the great wokeness… America’s still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage president.”

“There may be some Democrats who think that’s exactly what we need to do, Rush,” he said. “Get a gay guy kissing his husband on stage, ram it down Trump’s throat, and beat him in the general election. Really. Having fun envisioning that.”

Limbaugh mentioned Buttigieg kissing his husband five times in the short clip from his three-hour radio show, which could be because he actually believes that a gay man would spend an entire presidential debate making out with another man instead of responding to questions.

Earlier this week, Limbaugh said that parents wouldn’t be able to explain why Buttigieg kisses his husband, Chasten.

Also earlier this week, another rightwing radio show host, E.W. Jackson, said that the left doesn’t like Donald Trump because he’s “just too much of a man for them.”

In his rant from yesterday, Limbaugh also referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as “Pocahontas,” a racist joke popularized by Donald Trump about her having a Native American ancestor.
