The whole president thing didn’t work out for Pete Buttigieg, but now he could earn an Emmy nom for ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
Politics makes strange bedfellows, but so does television. Naturally, politicians and media go hand in hand since they use media to promote their agendas, but even with that in mind this year could bring an especially bizarre crossover between the two worlds: Pete Buttigieg could be nominated for Best Comedy Guest Actor for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Buttigieg, of course, is not well known for comedy or acting. The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, rose to national prominence when he ran for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 United States presidential election. He would have made history as the first openly gay presidential nominee for a major political party, and he also would have been the first millennial to earn a presidential nomination — he was born in 1982.
