    Pete Buttigieg Makes GOP Nightmares Real By Equating A Vote For Trump To Racism
    Pete Buttigieg made a clear argument that people who vote for Trump are looking the other way on racism.

    Pete Buttigieg: A Vote For Trump Is Looking The Other Way On Racism

    State of the Union @CNNSotu




    .@jaketapper: ďDo you think that itís a racist act to cast a vote for President Trump in 2020?Ē

    Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg: ďAt best it means looking the other way on racism.Ē #CNNSOTU

    Transcript via CNN State Of The Union:
    TAPPER: You told me on the show two weeks ago that you believe President Trump is a white nationalist.

    Given that, do you think that itís a racist act to cast a vote for President Trump in 2020?

    BUTTIGIEG: Well, at best, it means looking the other way on racism.

    But I think a lot of people are wondering what kind of deal even that is supposed to be.

    You know you look at what he said in that rally, ďYou have got no choice but to vote for me.Ē

    And if you look at the numbers, basically, what heís saying is, all right, I want you to look the other way on the racism, tolerate the negativity, accept the instability of my administration, because I am going to deliver for you job growth almost as good as the Obama years.

    Thatís what his argument amounts to right now. And itís part of the reason why heís unpopular.


    The argument that Buttigieg made is the one that keeps Republican strategists awake at night. Trump has no chance of winning votes outside of his base of support if a vote for Trump means a vote for turning a blind eye to racism.

    Buttigieg didnít call Trump supporters racists. He attached a meaning to a vote for Trump and by extension the Republican Party that Republicans donít want to have in the minds of voters. Trumpís supporters are going to stick with him no matter what, but it is suburban Republicans in swing and red states that Republicans have to have who are going to be swayed by the argument that voting for Trump equals a vote to enable racism.

    A vote for Trump is giving the country four more years of racism is the last thing that Republicans want voters to think as they cast their ballots in 2020.

    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Wake me when Buttigieg is polling at 5%.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    So Buttgig lies just like every other democrat.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    I don't know who Jason Easley is, but he and DU member babylonsister are (very) mentally self-fellating themselves. "Mayor Pete" and his huffery-puffery have me . "Mayor Pete" is screeching out his last ditch hysteria. I seriously doubt his Presidential campaign will survive to the end of 2019. I think 2020 will see him greeting the new year by continuing his role of failed mayor.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Mayor Pete has become almost as irrelevant and desperate as Bobby Hussein O'Rourke.

    This is the same shit they pulled in 2016; we'll shame you , guilt you and intimidate you into voting Democrat.

    Antifa and other Leftist goofs also tried screaming in people's faces and cursing them out thinking they would change their minds on an issue; dumb asses really thought they could " Shame someone into changing their minds and it never worked. So what did they do? Screamed louder and curse people out even more.

    When the old plan turns out bad and doesn't work, you get a new plan.

    For these jerkazois its ; If the plan doesn't work, double down. If it still doesn't work, triple down. if it STILLdoesn't work, blame someone who had nothing to do with the plan.

    1. Tying Trump and RACISM together is a smart move.
    Because it worked so well for Hillary, right?
