100 thoughts on “Pete Buttigieg warns that Bernie Sanders will hurt down-ballot Democrats

  1. Pete, you made a mistake by seeking  need you to……you should have asked for money with a request and not tell me your need…I'm sure you know what many will say regarding someone else need rather then a request…

  2. It's the final chance to derail Bernie. corporate media goes all out ahead of Super Tuesday. Elites out of touch again. Bernie is the best Democrat out there. Times are a changing America. Stick with the status quo and lose again and again.

  3. Under Bernie Sanders, when I die I have to give 90% of my wealth to the government, and if my kids receive the remaining 10% that will be taxed at a high rate too. what the hell do I leave my kids? Where will my kids live if they don't have a place of their own, or if I die in my early years? Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man.

  4. i hate this slimy little focker…. he is the 2nd closest 2020 Dem candidate after Bloomberg, to actually being more of a Republican in most of his policies and actions.

  5. If you nominate Bernie then you nominate Trump because Sanders doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of winning LOL. Mickey Mouse stands a better chance than BS.

  6. the democrat establishment basically gave them the candidate they wanted last time and defied the people's will that gave us trump. learn a lesson, tell you what gay boy pete alienates all the black and christian voters straight away even if chasten has a cute backside

  7. Pete is a danger to down ballot candidates Pete will unite the right and bring a great turn out for the right the religious right will pour out to the voter stations
    Like Pelosi said the down ballot candidates will win if they’re good candidates if they’re not good candidates they won’t win they are running the race Bernie’s not running at forum Trump showed that he can’t get nobody elected Barak wasn’t 100%
    Down ballot candidates will Winder office if they’re meant to Winder office if they are good candidates we will win Bernie will produce a good turn out people will produce a good turn out for the other side it’s just the way the world is

  8. The only way down ballot candidates lose is if they get spooked by consultants into leaning more moderate in order to "balance" Bernie's agenda. This country has been drifting right for decades. 40 years ago Reagan was in favor of amnesty for immigrants and banning assault rifles. We need leaders who will wrestle the right wing out of the drivers seat, turn the wheel ALL the way left, and FLOOR IT back to the REAL center!

  9. The Timeline: 1. Pete is in favor of Medicare for All.
    2. Pete has secret meeting with DNC insiders and major donors.
    3. Pete starts getting funding from Wall Street, insurance companies and pharmaceutical lobbyists.
    4. Pete is NO LONGER in favor of Medicare for All.

    Pete is a bought and paid for puppet.

  10. Hey Pete have you been studying up on Barack Obama's speeches? It sure looks and sounds that way. Seems to me like you're nothing but another full-fledged loser.

  11. He is right alas! Bernie could land the nomination but probably won't catch the moderate lane of the party, the former Republicans, the swing states/ voters you need to defeat Trump. In Iowa ( and NH, NV too) Pete got the rural areas' votes that had switched to Trump in 2016. The path to the victory is the ability to create a wide coalition and it's unknown if Bernie could achieve this: until now a great turn out did not show up and his platform is too extreme to appeal to mainstream Americans.

  12. Everyone's true colors are coming out. Bernie Sanders is the only choice. 40 yrs of public service fighting for equality, women's rights, health care and a living wage. Doesn't sound radical to me.


  14. Here is what the U.S. will be like if Bernie Sanders becomes president…..
    “The goal of socialism is communism”
    Vladimir Lenin

  15. The other Dems have literally nothing to offer except THEIR opinions about Bernie’s supposed fated doom against Trump, but EVERY poll says different, and the Dem primaries certainly say different.

    Bernie beats all of these corrupt corporate sellout Dems and beats Trump in every poll there is, even going back to 2016 polls.

  16. Hey Pete, go hang out with your billionaire friends and then go fuck yourself. There's not a snowball's chance in hell you're going to be president.

  17. Like it or not he is right on the House and Senate, if Dems are not in control of the House and Senate Dems WON'T get any of their agenda passed so winning the WH is NOT enough!!

  18. Pete is a puppet he is the Dems version of Marco Rubio, he will say what ever his puppet masters want him to say, that man cant think for himself

    @PeteButtigieg does not want you to see this; he would like everyone to stop retweeting it.

  20. Bernie Sanders Plans to Expand Social Security

    Bloomberg (Still) Wants to Cut Social Security

    Joe Biden Has Advocated Cutting Social Security for 40 Years

    Trumps 2020 budget cuts Medicaid, Social Security, and Medicare https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/3/12/18260271/trump-medicaid-social-security-medicare-budget-cuts

  21. Down ballot? Maybe Sanders will help get rid of the do-nothing establishment and bring in new Democrats like AOC and transform the party!

  22. It's fine to debate Bernie Sanders past. But there is NO debate on his future plans. The costs of his plans for Medicare for all, climate, job guarantees, college loan forgiveness, etc. are very clear. What Tio Bernie will NOT tell you is that these programs are IMPOSSIBLE from a numbers standpoint. The tax increases he espouses ($23 trillion over 10 years) will not even cover 25% of his proposed new spending ($97 trillion). HIS numbers, not mine. Tax rates on EVERYONE (because no…the rich cannot make up the deficit – not even close – even if the rich foolishly decide to keep their assets in America – which they wouldn't…and even if ALL of the Fossil Fuel industry were liquidated, much less sued by President Bernie) would be more like in the 75% range with a Euro-style VAT (like a Federal Sales tax) upwards of 25% – and THAT is conservative. If you would like the actual numbers broken down – or put here – let me know. Again…it's BERNIE's numbers, not mine. He just hopes most of you won't bother to examine them closely.

  23. He knows what’s up. Love his calm and rational manner, but especially love his ideas and proposals!

  24. The most un-classy candidate this time round. He's like a democratic TRUMP. His voice is so annoying. No one wants you lil' petey… sorry hun. We all want Bernie

  25. Sanders is a crazy guy who came to destroy the party. Look at the divisions with in the party its battle between moderates and progressives. Shame

  26. the mainstream media is turning a blind eye to Presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg's alleged plagiarism of former President Barack Obama.

  27. This is a big "what if" or WTF because that's for voters to decide. As a Obama voter, during his years when he was top of the ballot he hurt down ballot seats as well not because his went to far he didn't go far enough and the Democratic base stayed home in the midterm but still got reelected because of out of touch Romney.

  28. I love this disinformation that never gets cleared up.

    Bernie criticizes Pete for taking money from billionaires. Pete throws his hands up and says 'oh, a few billionaires have donated to the campaign, but most of our donors are not billionaires'


  29. Funny how all the Bernie Bros don't notice how Bernie interrupts and talks over people. Bernie points all the time and when you point , you have three fingers pointing back at you. Bernie and many of his supporters are duplicitous hypocrites. Bernie is a leftist version of Trump. He tells us what's wrong in the country (thank you captain obvious), but no details on how to fix it. Just that he has a plan. He incites his base to riotous behavior. And his base simply lies and misrepresents things to suit their narrative. When you show them the fact-check or hoax information, they would rather you not show them the truth and let them just spread their misinformation (leading to the dumbing down of society).

  30. Buttigieg is the carbon copy of dicksucking Obama is just perversion gone wild. This asshole talks like he is Obama. He uses the same arm movements, he uses the same intonation, he uses the same goddam words and his use of "Not only" and "but" just like Obama does is a dead giveaway of how psycho this plagiarizing idiot plays this political game for his CIA bosses.

  31. No Pete, if you taking the Rich folks' money, you will be doing their bidding=P There are always strings attached when the rich donate. I thought you were smart Pete but money makes you ignorant or you think we don't get it!

  32. Funny how Mayor Pete tries to be the "unity" candidate that will bring the party together… while doing nothing but attacking the other candidates for being too bold when they propose policies that a majority of Americans support. You're the divisive one Pete.

  33. Do they expect people to just get all excited about a candidate at this point in the race out of thin, read the comments on your own video not one Pete supporter all Bernie.

  34. its very aggravating listening to losing candidates trying to argue why the front runner should bow out for the losers to do better…YOU ALL are watered down versions of what Bernie Sanders has fought to bring to the top of the platform..

    Your version of medicare for who wants it dont save money it just add to the already high cost, it dont get rid of the waste, or the multimillionaire paychecks to the middleman insurance company exec's..

    if you wanna be the front runner..be the one with the most votes!!

  35. if Bernie Sanders isnt the one most democrats want, how come he is the one with the MOST democrats votes?? you got delegates in Iowa in a disater caucus from an app YOU helped fund, but Sanders had MORE VOTES than you….The delegate, electorate system is flawed….its the same as watching some children run a race and then the person who wins the race being told nah the second place one is the winner.

  36. Buttigieg says Bernie is too radical to beat Trump. This supposedly means that, he Pete "Butt of Jokes", is too NOT Radical to NOT beat Trump. And therein lies the problem. Too many NOTs about young Pete. He's just NOT.

  37. This is what needs to happen: Vladimir Putin's Comrade Bernie Sanders should go up against our President so that his Dangerous Socialist/Communist agenda will be Permanently Put to Rest. President Trump will Totally Destroy Bernie on the debate stage as he picks apart his nation-destroying and Mentally-deluded Socialist/Communist agenda. And yes, at this point, it doesn't matter who wins the Democrat nomination. Our President will Steam Roll to an Overwhelming Landslide BLOWOUT Victory on November 3rd. Make Absolutely NO Mistake about that.

    We the GOOD People of America will be Celebrating another Political Victory for the ages. The continuation of President Trump's EXCELLENT America First Agenda will Make and Keep America Great! ALLELUIA!






  38. Buttigieg is personally polarizing the democratic party. Bernie Sanders is Uniting the Country. Big difference.
    Bernie Sanders 2020!!! We got this everybody, We welcome and love any new Bernie Supporters. We are here for you!

  39. Mayor Pete is TOTALLY FULL OF IT in regards to his military service. A COMPLETE B.S.’er. The FACTS tell a WAAAAY different story than of his self-proclaimed “Courage”. (In fact, Mayor Pete has more in common with HUNTER BIDEN(!) than any courageous war hero!) Just remember this when you hear his slick answers to questions from the media or other candidates on any issue. He is an EXPERT liar and deceiver!! The following, from the Wall Street Journal, By Greg Kelly and Katie Horgan – January 6, 2020.

    When Mr. Buttigieg was asked if President Trump “deserves some credit” for the strike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani. “No,” he replied, “not until we know whether this was a good decision and how this decision was made.” He questioned whether “it was the right strategic move” and said his own judgment “is informed by the experience of having been on one of those planes headed into a war zone.” War Hero Pete??? NOT SO FAST!!!

    Mr. Buttigieg’s stint in the Navy isn’t a fraction as impressive as he makes it out to be. His 2019 memoir is called “Shortest Way Home,” an apt description of his military service. He entered the military through a little-used shortcut: direct commission in the reserves. The usual route to an officer’s commission includes four years at Annapolis or another military academy or months of intense training at Officer Candidate School. ROTC programs send prospective officers to far-flung summer training programs and require military drills during the academic year. Mr. Buttigieg skipped all that—no obstacle courses, no weapons training, no evaluation of his ability or willingness to lead. Paperwork, a health exam and a background check were all it took to make him a naval officer.

    Combat veterans have grumbled for decades about the direct-commission route. The politically connected and other luminaries who receive immediate commissions are disparaged as “pomeranian princes.”HUNTER BIDEN, son of the former vice president, accepted a direct commission (but was discharged after one month of service for failing a drug test.)

    In reality, Mr. Buttigieg was assigned to a comfortable corner of military life, the Naval Station in Great Lakes, Ill. Paperwork and light exercise were the order of the day. MAYOR PETE WAS A PENCIL & PAPER PUSHER/DESK JOCKEY – LOOKING FOR A SAFE, EASY.. YET ADVANTAGEOUS GIG TO FURTHER HIS POLITICAL AMBITIONS. PERIOD.

    During a recent November debate, Mr. Buttigieg proclaimed: “I have the experience of being commanded into a war zone by an American president.” The reality isn’t so grandiose. In 2013, Mayor Pete himself wrote that he “made sure my chain of command knew that I would rather go (on assignment) sooner than later, and would rather go to Afghanistan than anywhere else.” No doubt , Mayor Pete sensed that his pencil pushing skills were critically needed overseas.


    PENCIL-PUSHING, DESK JOCKEY WAR HERO PETE spent some five months in Afghanistan, where he writes that he remained less busy than he’d been at City Hall in South Bend, with “more time for reflection and reading than I was used to back home.” He writes that he would take “a laptop and a cigar up to the roof at midnight to pick up a Wi-Fi signal and patch via Skype into a staff meeting at home.” Yeah – REAL HARD….. SUCH DANGEROUS DUTY !!! In fact, the closest that PENCIL-PUSHING, DESK JOCKEY WAR HERO PETE came to combat was ferrying other admin pencil-pushing staffers around in an SUV!! In his campaign kickoff speech last April he referred to “119 trips I took outside the wire, driving or guarding a vehicle.” That’s a strange thing to count. Combat sorties in an F-18 are carefully logged. Driving a car isn’t – ESPECIALLY when they are between administrative posts that are NOWHERE NEAR any combat area.


    After the “grueling 5 months (LOLOL) in Afghanistan were up, a welcome-home rally, glowing press, a few more years of light service, PENCIL-PUSHING, DESK JOCKEY WAR HERO PETE left the reserves – much to the relief of his office chair and pencil-sharpener! But his bragging rights were assured. Candidate Buttigieg takes every opportunity to lean in on those BRUTAL, DANGEROUS (LOLOLOLOL – ROFL) 5 months in Afghanistan. Questions ranging from student debt to Colin Kaepernick to gun control prompt him to reference his military stint, sometimes indignantly!

    “I don’t need lessons from you on courage,” he lectured former Rep. Beto O’Rourke in an October debate, “political or personal.” Two months later he told Sen. Amy Klobuchar, “Let me tell you about my relationship to the First Amendment. It is part of the Constitution that I raised my right hand and swore to defend with my life. That is my experience, and it may not be the same as yours, but it counts, Senator, it counts.” (Dear God….can you just imagine PENCIL-PUSHING, DESK JOCKEY WAR HERO PETE/ Mayor Deceit’s campaign staff laughing at how STUPID the Media – and especially the other candidates are??)

    Debate moderators and other journalists—none of whom have bothered to investigate the truth—eagerly sell Mr. Buttigieg’s narrative. Debate moderators often point out that he served in Afghanistan and, if Tulsi Gabbard isn’t there, is the only veteran on the stage. When Ms. Gabbard is present, the moderators seldom mention her military experience, which dwarfs Mr. Buttigieg’s.

    Those who did the most in war talk about it the least, for VERY good reasons. Serving in a support or noncombat role is honorable, but NOT when it is held up as the basis of a presidential campaign – and ESPECIALLY NOT when it is USED to INTENTIONALLY DECEIVE and OUTRIGHT LIE in order to gain POLITICAL ADVANTAGE – in which case it is more akin to INSULTING the brave and courageous warriors that actually DO defend our way of life.

    PENCIL-PUSHING, DESK JOCKEY WAR HERO PETE the Mayor is a VERY skilled and slick politician. But he is rotten at the core and will do ANYTHING to gain political power. (Remember, he comes from a Marxist father that advocated the overthrow of the American government.)

  40. Hey CNN, stop being assholes and writing focused and directed hit pieces on Bernie. Bernie is obviously the most popular and best chance to beat Trump. You'd be a fool to think Biden stands a chance. If he wins the nomination and you don't start backing him IMMEDIATELY, while continuing to carve him down, you'll have a direct hand in ushering another 4 years of Trump. You have the power and coverage to present him in a positive light to a broad swath of moderate voters. Do your duty to oust Trump.

  41. Pete is a fraud and a establishment plant. Pete is a fraud along with his Obama speech writers. Fraud fraud fraud. Brainwashing a 9yr old that he is gay you sick minded lil boy. #Bernie2020

  42. If you're a down ballot candidate afraid of a Bernie presidency nomination, you're most likely part of the establishment. The influx of progressives recently elected to Congress (AOC and Tlaib notably) and state legislatures should be a sign that there is a political shift happening. The DNC made it known they'd rather set fire to the Democratic Party than elect Bernie, so as that down ballot candidate, who are you standing by? The open corruption of the party or the will of the people?
