Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.7

A video clip of Chasten Buttigieg – the husband of Pete Buttigieg – leading children in a pledge to the LGBTQ flag at the Iowa Safe Schools’ Pride Camp in July 2019 has resurfaced and gone viral on social media. Chasten says in the same cadence as when reciting the American Pledge of Allegiance, “I pledge my heart to the rainbow of the not-so-typical gay camp. One camp, full of pride, indivisible, with affirmation and equal rights for all.” Pete is currently the U.S. Secretary of Transportation and was a U.S. presidential candidate in 2020.
