mayor pete trying to pick up black voters
Mayor Pete has won 8,515 votes in his entire political career.
If he weren’t a white dude, he would have been laughed out of the building by now.
A good question for Mayor Pete tonight would be to quote his high school essay praising Bernie Sanders while decrying politicians who drift to the center and depend on focus groups, and ask him what he would say to that young man today.
Under Mayor Pete's watch, the 4th largest town in Indiana had a higher murder rate than Chicago:
16.4 murders per/100,000 in Chicago
16.8 murders per/100,000 in South Bend
He can't keep a small town safe, what makes him think he can keep America safe?
Mayor Pete faked black support, faked prominent black ENDORSEMENTS, used stock Kenyan photos for his campaign, doubled down when caught, and got zero questions about it or pushback in the debate. #DemDebate https://t.co/Sv1vWJql51
Mayor Pete became the frontrunner in Iowa this week, and as if on cue, Tulsi Gabbard is now dishonestly attacking him. She focuses her worst lies on whoever is pulling out ahead at any given moment. All she cares about is destroying the Democrats. Get her the hell off this stage.
Mayor Pete just said he’d continue @realDonaldTrump
’s support for farmers hurt by China’s trade retaliation.
Given the chance, he did NOT say he’d remove the tariffs.
Because he knows POTUS is right to stand up to China & that his plan is working.
But he can’t admit it.
Tulsi fact checks Mayor Pete on careless statements about our military: "You were asked directly whether you would send our troops to Mexico to fight cartels and your answer was yes. The fact checkers can check this out." - TULSI2020 #TulsiGabbard
Mayor Pete Buttigieg brought out the knives for Tulsi:
On judgment: "One of the foreign leaders you mentioned is Bashar al-Assad...I have in my experience, though not in Washington, enough judgment that I would not have sat down with a murderous dictator like that."
Remember the last debate when multiple outlets reported that some of Bernie’s best line were Warrens? Well now we have Mayor Pete getting credit for Tulsi’s line against him!
I feel like Mayor Pete’s speeches are every book report I’ve ever written without reading the book.
Mayor Pete attacks Tulsi for meeting Assad. Real bold, fresh, new line of attack! #DemDebate
Mayor Pete is right he's not bad because he "lacks experience", he's bad because his policies are trash and his ideology is trash. #DemDebate
The fact that the media isn't treating Mayor Pete's lies about his black supporters as anything but a scandal is in itself a scandal. https://t.co/ofCWp3ZMJt @ryangrim
I’m sure this will be relevant at some point, so here it goes: I received more votes than Mayor Pete and I’m a Black local elected official...
Mayor Pete would look so hot with a mustache oh crap is that okay to say I say it with total respect for his mind #DemDebate
What a mess.
Mayor Pete says if President he’d make sure at least 25% of all contracts went to women and people of color.
In his small own city where he is Mayor, guess what the percentage is?
Mayor Pete asked "would you cut military spending?". He doesn't say "yes". #DemDebate
Thank you MSNBC for letting Mayor Pete and Klobuchar argue with each other for 10 minutes straight. #DemDebate
Sure, people change & start paying attention suddenly to race when they start running for Prez. But let's look at track records. Mayor Pete is smart but he was mayor of a small town w/26.4% black folks & couldn't implement this plan then, nor did he take on police accountability. https://t.co/D4i4CpeiM6
MAYOR PETE HOW DARE YOU TALK SHIT ABOUT 17TH CENTURY MILITARY TECHNOLOGY I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOU STORM A TRACE ITALIENNE OR BREAK A TERCIO YOU SMUG LITTLE PRICK
Mayor Pete wins the night--because nothing slowed his momentum. Klobuchar was a strong second.
"Washington experience is not the only experience that matters," Mayor Pete Buttigieg said at the #DemDebate. "There's more than 100 years of Washington experience on this stage, and where are we right now as a country?" https://t.co/USW3GxbmHx
about Mayor Pete comparing his struggle with black people's. "I'm never going to engage, or allow anyone to engage in comparing struggles. I think that is just misdirected."
"I care about (racial justice) because my faith teaches me that salvation has to do with if I make myself useful to those who have been excluded, marginalized, cast aside, and oppressed in this society"
-Mayor Pete #DemDebate
Mayor Pete is running for president in 2020 — not waiting 4, 8, or 12 years — because he understands the fierce urgency of this moment. He’s our best shot to defeat Donald Trump + unite our country. #DemDebate #nhpolitics https://t.co/MK8WVYiSSR
to summarize: Mayor Pete lies about his Black support, claims Black leaders who don't support him do. Harris is asked about it & gives him a pass. Pete is asked about it & says his faith makes him care about people who have experiences that are nothing like his bc gay marriage.
Mayor Pete made us all so proud tonight. Washington is broken & we need a fresh start. Help us keep building #TeamPete👇🏾 https://t.co/8E5fFRSWRy
A colleague just told me they love @TheRoot
