New photos of a lavish and luxurious fundraiser held for the Pete Buttigieg campaign by its billionaire donors has surfaced.
Billionaires Craig and Kathryn Hall hosted an event for the South Bend, Indiana mayor at the Hall Rutherford wine caves in California’s Napa Valley. If you at all doubted it, the setting is just as fancy and elitist as it sounds.
The wine cave apparently features a chandelier with 1,500 Swarovski crystals, and $900 cabernet for sale.
The leaks from the fundraiser threaten to paint a picture of Buttigieg as a vanity candidate of the nation’s political elite, who often spare no expense in funding and propping up candidates to advance their interests in Washington.
Buttigieg has attracted criticism from other Democratic candidates for his continued reliance on big-money fundraisers, usually hosted by billionaire donors. The mainstream media-beloved candidate was finally compelled to release a list of his major donors earlier this week after facing calls to do so from Democratic voters.
The Bernie Sanders campaign in particular took offense at Buttigieg’s grotesque elite fundraiser, sending out an email blast in which the socialist candidate stated he’d never be caught holding a similar event at a southern California ‘wine cave.’
In a political environment in which elite big-money political connections are increasingly frowned on from across the political spectrum, Mayor Pete may find it difficult to overcome perceptions that he’s nothing more than a corporate Democrat puppet. However, in the unlikely event that he wins the primary, the ‘smart’ neoliberal Democrat would face an uphill battle against President Trump, known for his appeal to working class voters that outpaces most Republicans.
The latest round of polling revealed Mayor Pete is in fact the weakest possible candidate against President Trump, despite the mainstream media’s fascination with the elite Democrat.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
