You might want to sit down for this white-hot HuffPost scoop about Pete Buttigieg’s problematic high school:

Whoa, you guys. Whoa:

The Roman Catholic high school that Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg attended has a policy against hiring educators in same-sex relationships, HuffPost has learned. This means even Buttigieg, the nation’s first openly gay White House contender, would not be able to get a job at his alma mater on the basis of his sexuality.
