Former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg questioned “why an evangelical Christian like Mike Pence wants to be on a ticket with a president caught with a porn star” Wednesday on Fox News.

Buttigieg was referencing allegations made by from adult performer from Stormy Daniels that she and Trump had an affair. Trump has denied the affair.

The former Democratic presidential candidate’s response came after Fox News’ Martha MacCallum asked him ahead of Wednesday’s vice presidential debate how Sen. Kamala Harris might “justify” changing her position on Medicare for All to more closely match that of Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“There’s a classic parlor game of trying to find a little bit of daylight between running mates and if people want to play that game we could look into why an evangelical Christian like Mike Pence wants to be on a ticket with a president caught with a porn star or how he feels about the immigration policy that he called ‘unconstitutional’ before he decided to team up with Donald Trump,” replied Buttigieg.

He went on to say that he could “play that game” all night but “most Americans” are more interested in finding out which candidate can promise safety in the face of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
