Buttigieg literally takes campaign to another level when he tells child Trump is ‘really mean’

Pete Buttigieg is taking his presidential campaign to another level.

The South Bend, Indiana mayor, who squatted down at a California campaign event so he could take questions from children, told one little girl that President Donald Trump is “really mean.”

The young girl apparently asked the Democratic hopeful a fundraising event in Palo Alto how he planned to beat the president in the 2020 election.

“The most important thing is we can’t play his game. Ya know how he’s really mean? He likes to call people names,” Buttigieg replied.

“If we do it his way, I think we’re going to lose, so we have to change the whole game,” he added.

Buttigieg, who would be the nation’s first openly gay president if he wins, explained that he wants people to be “thinking about different things when they are making up their minds” on who to vote for, including “how it’s going to affect their lives, thinking about what kind of values they want and thinking about what kind of person they want in the Oval Office.”

The Democrat then asked the young girl if she understood the idea of “opposites,” going on to claim that Americans tend to vote for a president who is the opposite of the one who was just in power.

“Part of why we think I’m the best candidate to beat Trump is that I’m the total opposite,” he said.

The crowd met Buttigieg’s comment with laughter and applause.

The South Bend mayor has been critical of Trump from the outset, as expected, but his personal attacks on Vice President Mike pence over his Christian faith and opposition to gay marriage have caused backlash with Buttigieg claiming Pence had a “problem” with him because he is gay. Since declaring his candidacy, Buttigieg, who has identified himself as a Christian, has repeatedly criticized Pence, the former governor of Indiana. Pence politely fired back during a CNN interview last month.

The 37-year-old presidential contender was recently called out by his brother-in-law for lying about his family history in order to score political points.

During a town hall on Monday, Buttigieg was at a loss to even name a single living Republican he respected, telling MSNBC host Chris Matthews that the question would have been easier if he wasn’t limited to only naming a living figure.

He eventually settled on 1940 GOP presidential nominee Wendell Willkie.

“He was from Indiana, he put country before party,” Buttigieg said.
