  1. TMZ is really trying to push this guy. No one cares for this dude, so what’s the agenda here?

    • No one cares? Maybe you don’t, and that’s fine, but he’s polling in third in early states and half of Democrats haven’t heard of him yet.

  2. God created Adam & Eve.
    Not Adam & Steve.
    We dont need cockbreath in the White House.
    Fgs are disgusting!!!

  3. Wtf does playing the guitar and being gay have to do with running for president?

  4. Its not about what you can do for the people or this country anymore. It’s about your sexual preference! Smh

  5. January 20, 1961 “Ask not what your country can do for you…..Ask what you can do for your country.” Apr 15, 2019 “Ask not about a far leftists policies or proposals…….Ask him if he puts a wiener in his buns and plays acoustics.” The UTTER state of the far left. Trump is going to win by a landslide and I cant wait.

    • BloomsburyBuddhist Btw, Kennedy would’ve despised you. You are everything he stood against. You are disgusting.

  6. TMZ encouraging to vote for gays I get it I get it it’s a Hollywood thing I get it I haven’t seen tmz promote a candidate like this before

  7. no one cares . And you are being political by promoting him so you’re just another paid News Network he doesn’t stand a chance

  8. Pete for president 2020! Not *NSYNC if Justin Timberlake wasn’t there. Gotta have all five members to call them *NSYNC

  9. Over my dead body I’m voting for this candidate just because he’s gay. If he doesn’t have good policies and work with lobbyists, he’s a waste of a vote.

  10. Pete look like a powerbottom….there’s no way he’s the TOP of his gay relationship…womp.womp.

  11. Hi. Im an anti Trumper that cares much more about image and manner of speaking than policy and performance.
    I would def vote for this guy before Trump.
    My priorities are in order.
