Pete Buttigieg Trump Supporters Committed Racists

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg called supporters of President Donald Trump who chanted “send them back”, referring to “The Squad” of Democrat congresswomen who seem to hate America, a group of “committed racists” and said he has no intention of trying to court their vote in a general election.

Adam Wren, a POLITICO content editor, says Buttigieg called supporters of President Trump “committed racists” in an interview, and said he has accepted he will never get the vote of Trump supporters in a general election.

“I asked @PeteButtigieg whether he wanted to win over Trump voters who chanted ‘send her back’ last night,” wrote Wren.

According to Wren, Buttigieg responded that “No, the reality is there are a lot of committed racists whose vote I’m never going to get and that’s alright,” and continued “there are a lot of people who simply voted to burn the house now.”

“And now that the house is on fire, it’s time to actually put in somebody who’s going to do something about the future,” concluded Buttigieg.

The remark is eerily similar to those of Hillary Clinton, the failed presidential candidate and wife of Jeffrey Epstein associate President Bill Clinton.

In 2016, Clinton famously said President Trump’s supporters could be referred to as a “basket of deplorables” and called them “irredeemable”.

According to Rolling Stone, Clinton told an audience in 2016 that “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?”

Later in her speech, Clinton added:

Now, some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America. But the other basket — and I know this because I see friends from all over America here — I see friends from Florida and Georgia and South Carolina and Texas — as well as, you know, New York and California — but that other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they’re just desperate for change. It doesn’t really even matter where it comes from.

Buttigieg is currently rising in the polls, though slowly. In the battleground state of New Hampshire, he polls higher than Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), Andrew Yang, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Marianne Williamson, Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

Big League Politics reported:

If you are noticing a pattern, it is that virtually nobody cares for the vast majority of Democrats within the state of New Hampshire.

Only does the sixth place candidate, Andrew Yang, finally break into double digits with 17 poll respondents supporting him. Above him, in fifth place, are Sen. Bernie Sanders, with 35 respondents, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 40.

Biden, Harris, and Warren had 73, 61, and 59 respectively.

It is worth noting that Buttigieg seems to have stolen the thunder from failed Senate candidate and noted Irishman Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, who is now polling at 0.0 per cent in New Hampshire.
