The tweet came after a spokesperson for Vice President Pence earlier Tuesday responded to Buttigieg’s criticism of Pence by noting that the former Indiana governor once called Buttigieg a “dedicated public servant.”

“I hold Mayor Buttigieg in the highest personal regard. We have a great working relationship. I see him as a dedicated public servant, and a patriot,” Pence said in 2015, according to a local CBS affiliate, after Buttigieg came out as gay.

On Sunday, Buttigieg took on Pence — who opposed legalizing gay marriage — by saying that if Pence has a “problem with who I am,” then the “quarrel” is with his creator. 

“Speaking only for myself, I can tell you that if me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade,” Buttigieg said at the LGBTQ Victory Fund’s annual brunch.

“And that’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand,” he continued. “If you’ve got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”
