Major drama went down in Pete Buttigieg‘s kitchen this week. And we mean major.
Yesterday, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana and 2020 hopeful tweeted:
Doing a quick bit of laundry. Hear loud scream. Run into kitchen terrified, expecting to see @Chas10Buttigieg in pool of blood. Am thereupon informed that @Lin_Manuel is following my husband, whose life is now complete.

He’s, of course, talking about Lin-Manuel Miranda, the man responsible for the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton.
Honestly, we’d probably freak out if he followed us, too.
So far, Pete’s tweet has received over 115K likes, nearly 8K retweets, and over 2K responses. Here are just a few of them…
I’m kinda more impressed about Mayor Pete doing laundry tho!

Your husband is quickly becoming a national treasure.

Think my primary vote’s about locked in…

I’m so happy for both of you. Maybe, he’ll get you tickets for Hamilton on Broadway! They’re hard to come by.

Do you think @realDonaldTrump has any cute stories like that?

Wow, how’d he manage that?…I went to school with Lin, interviewed him a few times, have a crush on his dad and he still hasn’t followed me! ?

There needs to be a Married to the Mayor web series where @Chas10Buttigieg life gets flipped turned upside down when *surprise!* hes now the First Gentleman of the US.

And then there’s this response, which we would be absolutely remiss not to include. It was written by a sweet grandmother in Texas named Judi whose Twitter handle is @judiloveslife:
This is just the best tweet ever! Thanks for the great laugh tonight while I’m trying to tune out all the bad news of the day! Also wishing you the best success on your run for the presidency. This will be a very exciting campaign.
