Pete Buttigieg, Justin Mikita, Debra Messing & More React To Trump Administration Moving to Block LGBTQ Couples From Adopting

Celebrities are calling out and reacting to the Trump Administration allowing a bill to move forward to the Supreme Court which would give adoption agencies the right to refuse LGBTQ couples to adopt a child.

In the bried, that was filed this week, the DOJ is arguing that “cities should not be able to protect LGBTQ+ couples from discrimination by religious organizations.”

It all dates back to 2018 when Catholic Social Services sued the city of Philadelphia. CSS refused to place a child with a same sex couple, which went against their contract with the city that stated they must abide by nondiscrimination policies.

The case is now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The DOJ’s brief claims that “The City impermissibly targeted religious organizations … the city focused only on religious agencies, making just a single inquiry to a secular foster-care agency. … City officials made no effort to determine whether other secular agencies perform home studies for everyone who requests them.”

Many celebs are slamming the administration for allowing the case to go to the Supreme Court at all.

“Tax dollars should not be used to discriminate. Period,” Pete Buttigieg, who is gay and a former Presidential hopeful, wrote on Twitter in regards to the news.

Earlier over the weekend, Donald Trump confused a lot of Twitter users by liking this tweet.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg filled in as guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (March 12) and lived out his Star Trek super-fan dreams!

The former candidate for President of the United States, who is a lifelong Star Trek fan, received a Star Trek: The Next Generation television script and signed photo from his special guest Sir Patrick Stewart, who plays Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek franchise.

“This will hold a place of pride,” Buttigieg said as Stewart signed the script’s cover.

Mayor Pete also participated in a Star Trek trivia contest with Sir Patrick called “Who’s the Captain Now?” hosted by surprise guest LeVar Burton, who played Chief Engineer Geordi LaForge on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The 38-year-old former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana announced on the Today show that he will be guest hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live! later this week.

Today host Craig Melvin asked Pete what he has in store for his opening monologue.

“Hopefully some funnier minds than mine will be doing some writing for that,” Pete replied. “I think it is going to be fun. The thing about running a presidential campaign is you will have been focused on one thing and one thing only. It is nice to be able to zoom out and come back at life.”

Pete‘s hosting gig on Jimmy Kimmel Live! comes a little over a week after he dropped out of the Democratic race for president and endorsed fellow candid Joe Biden.

Pete Buttigieg Gets Support From Democratic Candidates After Suspending His Campaign

Pete Buttigieg‘s race for President is over.

The 38-year-old former Mayor officially made the announcement on Sunday night (March 1) in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana.

“At this point in the race, the best way to keep faith with those goals and ideals is to step aside and help bring our party and our country together,” Pete said with husband Chasten Buttigieg by his side. “So tonight I am making the difficult decision to suspend my campaign for the presidency.”

“We sent a message to every kid out there wondering if whatever marks them out as different means they are somehow destined to be less than, to see that someone who once felt that exact same way can become a leading American presidential candidate with his husband at his side,” Pete said.

After making the announcement, the remaining Democratic candidates still in the running tweeted Pete, commending him on his resilient, and historic campaign.
