South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has experienced a surge in Iowa and in New Hampshire.
But like most candidates who have had their time at the time of the polls, it’s likely not going to last.
Buttigieg’s reign at atop of the polls will not last as much as he or his campaign may want that to happen.
Well, because he is polling terribly with African-Americans, an important constituency in the Democratic party.
An article published on the Root takes things a bit further, actually calling Buttigieg a “lying MF.”
The article takes exception with the following clip of Buttigieg running for mayor in 2011.
The article states:
I want to be clear: Pete Buttigieg is a lying motherfucker.
This is not a misunderstanding. This is not a misstatement. Pete Buttigieg went to the best educational institutions America has to offer and he—more than anyone on the goddamned planet—knows that everything he just said is a baldfaced lie.
The article goes on to state the following:
Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is a lucky motherfucker, too.
He attended one of the best private schools in the country that was quite literally on the campus of one of the best colleges in the country, Notre Dame University, where his father worked as a professor for 29 years. His mother taught at an even better, more elite school. And if you ask how he got into Harvard or became a Rhodes Scholar, Mayor Pete would probably insist that it had nothing to do with whiteness. He would likely tell you that he valued education and had great role models, both of which are probably true. There is no question that he is intelligent, hard-working and well-educated.
But he didn’t have to jump a ditch.
