    Pete Buttigieg is one of the most sensible down to earth candidates who is running for president in the 2020 election.

    Compare Buttigieg to Yang,i think Yang definitely is smarter and understand the situation with Mr.Trump. You can't say sun is gonna shine again after Trump leaves,American people wanted Trump and some are happy with him as economy is doing well. Trump was just the symptom like Mr.Yang says..

    Establishment-toe-the-line type of guy, the kind America is brainwashed to select by the CIA controlled media! This guy doesn’t have COURAGE to meet with adversaries or friends of the world. Such a puppet!

    Pete is just copying a lot of Yang's plans, but the dude just wants to get into office. I doubt he'll do any of the shit he's saying.

    Look into Andrew Yang and his policies. If you're kind of interested in Pete's talking points he got some of the ideas from Andrew yang. Look into yangs policies he has 150+.|6497218487|86498767388|yang%202020&refcode=ay-ads-20190829-search-google-brand|6497218487|86498767388|yang%202020&gclid=Cj0KCQiAoIPvBRDgARIsAHsCw0_8BYlI_GLZfZw2ikINV7_6Dv2B2hzjSOq_0kiXhKX5KlkyV6xwNVkaAtMXEALw_wcB

    Go home, racist conman pete. You are a fraud who will never beat Trump. Your healthcare plan will kill thousands of people and bankrupt our country. You are in the wrong primary.

    Pete Buttigig has my vote! His common sense gun control is a refreshing change we all can live with, by banning assault weapons, and weapons of war. Pete has shown to be a man's man in every way!!!!

    In 2020 we will have two choices for president... A career politician and more corrupted government OR more transparency by a businessman who busts up corrupted governments.

    Medicare for all who want it isn't a proving ground for Medicare For All. It inherently ruins that public option because only poor and sick people would be on that plan and only rich, healthy people will have private insurance.

    Our USA flag is Red, White, Blue. Red = female hooker, Blue = male hooker, White shades either and colors to identify kids sex as babies. Also, white refers to virginity, God, and "puruty." Nuns and priests wear black and white. I am a 9 centaur. A 69 black and white yin and yang. Is there opportunity for me? For everyone? Or just a select few? Even those without a high school education? Or, does your plan HURT our economy, society, world / universe? I can tell you truth as I am very close to myself! One thing I do not put up with is hurt, hate, lies and deceit! You are ab actor and hired! A representative of the people and PAID! I also do not stand for insubordination as that is grounds for termination in the workforce to disobey a direct order. As our government and congress did against Trump! Understand? I hope you and your gay community understand stonewall and the truth. It was a GAY HOOKER! Tina reflects that to me and the New York City New Years Eve Ball drop changed recently to resemble crystal ball. That is fact and one protected by a real military you may not know of! However, I have experienced and witnessed through a "U" (horseshoe/centaur( market network (telepathic) Which needs work! And, one that exists and will be brought to Justice if hired workers such as our hired government representatives continue to disobey direct orders! Statue of Liberty is Turquoise which relates to sagitartian color. Better color is the color of ICE: street term for Tina/Crystal Meth. And, one falling under a stimulant under Physic Education. I am fire and ice aka YIN/YANG and don't forget we move forward not backwards. Last vote was my stage character matt steel all done "perfectly" as planned.

      Hate inside? says the drunken hateful ignoramus filled with hate. Go watch Fox “news” for more moronic knuckle-dragging propaganda...

    I'm beginning to realize Pete is Mike Dukakis. He even sore of physically resembles him. He's decent and super smart and mature, well spoken, and a moderate. And I fear he's going to lose like Dukakis.

    LoL what he spoke is all Andrew’s idea all said in a different way.

    • Slash Cower
      Slash Cower Month ago +1

      Praxy Yeah it’s one thing to have leadership quality to be open to other ideas and recognize when there’s a better option than yours and another to simply copy the “better man” or the competition. I don’t get how his supporters don’t see he’s regurgitating All of Yangs ideas.
      What will Pete do if he’s elected and all the has is the top level ideas he “borrowed” from Yang but doesn’t know how to properly implement any of them?

    Oh establishededia. Interviewing the guy who got no plans and all platitudes, the guy who flip flops whichever the polls wanted a candidate to be, copying candidates left and right. He's that kind of guy, expect he'll be the same if he wins.
    Open your eyes, the future of humanity is at stake, gods are already giving us Andrew Yang.

    i like his healthcare policy but his gun policy is so basic. Is pretty much the same thing most of these democrats been pushing for a long time. I like yangs plan with the finger print option to use.

    Can’t fault him... where I come from, we have national healthcare but if you want private (it can be quicker for non life-threatening procedures), it’s your choice.
    America has a huge international reputation issue to address.
    To have an educated, articulate, honest, government-aware president in the WH... is a great step in the right direction.

    Fuck mayor Pete. He was for Medicare for all til his donors said not to. And he's pretending his plan adds choice, it takes away choice. You can't pick your doctor under his plan because everyone isn't in the same network. This fucking guy is fake as fuck
