What Really Happened to Pete Buttigieg?


Pete Buttigieg had a quick and surprising rise through the top ranks of the DNC to become a Presidential contender from an unknown mayor of a small town in Indiana. Two years ago virtually nobody knew who he was. Then, poof, out of nowhere he’s given street credit by CNN, ABC, NBC, the usual king makers of the DNC.

I’m not sure Pete was taken that seriously by most Americans until he won Iowa. In that moment he became a star. All of his opponents had histories and well-documented mistakes. He, like Barrack Obama, was relatively unknown and that was refreshing to his supporters. It meant he didn’t have baggage. It meant he had a chance to squeak through the primaries, and perhaps the general, virtually untouched.

If you watched any of the Pete/Obama speech videos then you’d know he sounded EXACTLY like Barrack Obama. He was calm, cool, and collected. He had a way to speaking without really saying anything. Sound familiar? His base was emotional and he knew how to pick at that.

So what happened?




In a surprise move, shortly after an interview on "Meet the Press", Mayor Pete announced his campaign's withdrawal from the POTUS 2020 race. He was already on his charter plane, headed for a rally in Dallas, TX but it was turned around.

A senior campaign aide told Fox News the decision was "absolutely not" because of Buttigieg's failure to reach his Super Tuesday fundraising goal of $13 million.

He was about $1.6 million short of his goal but that was still reachable. He just had a string of defeats following Iowa so it very well could be that he didn't see a path. The timing is what makes it interesting. His withdrawal likely hurts Bernie Sanders more than anyone, and just a couple of days before Super Tuesday.

President Trump has been steadily pointing out that, no matter what Sanders does, the DNC is going to take the nomination away from him, again. Was that the real reason behind his withdrawal? Did he make a deal to give Biden his Super Tuesday votes? Would that be a quid pro quo (kidding, but only kind of)?

"Pete Buttigieg is OUT," Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday. "All of his SuperTuesday votes will go to Sleepy Joe Biden. Great timing. This is the REAL beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play - NO NOMINATION, AGAIN!"

With Steyer dropping out and Buttigieg now out the field is narrowing. It's increasingly looking like it will be a Biden vs Sanders matchup but, let's be honest, we have no idea what Biden is going to say between now and then. I'm not sure he has any idea what he'll be saying, either. Anything could happen but Biden looks poised to challenge Sanders in what seems to have obvious support among the DNC kingmakers. "Anybody but Sanders" should be their slogan.

  1. All we needed was another smooth-talking Obama. Pete was put on a pedestal by the media. The American people are a little smarter than to fall for the hype.

      1. well it takes some people a bit longer to see that they are going to get raped, unless they happen to like it.

    1. Pete Buttgig is a homosexual and a majority of his funds came from lgtq types, and they are not numerous enough to keep money flowing to keep Pete competitive with Biden and Sanders.

      Another possibility, based on his lifestyle, is he MIGHT have discovered AIDS creeping through his system.

  2. Let us face it the DEMS are all trying to make the USA a third world nation.. We are not just going to give up to that kind of goings on.. LOVE THESE USA patriots.

  3. This is not meant to be frivolous. If Pete became president, what would we call his husband???? First gentleman……first lady….. Just asking.

    1. First Roomy? First Spouse? First Partner? First Companion? Oh My I am being so nice. I’m sure there are those of you who could fill in the blank after First with many of the choices I am not posting here. LMFAO !!!

    2. That depends entirely which role Buttgig played in the marriage. Was he the male “wife” or “husband. At one of his rallies he and his sweetie embraced and kissed after his “performance. I thought his “husband” was taller, bigger, and more masculine than Pete.

      1. Isn’t it ironic that he has a BUTT in his last name? Yes it’s sad when your life revolves around another mans rear end.

  4. I am a little disappointed that Buttigieg is dropping out so soon. He appears to be a talented man, and was the first to break the Taboo on gay as a block to national office. Gay men are a special group, with male vitality coupled with feminine sensitivity. Maybe Trump can find a place in his administration for Mayor Pete, to give him some needed exposure to the DC rat race.

  5. Unfortunately, I believe it is just a matter of time before this country turns socialists. Our kids, who will be tomorrow’s leaders are being force fed this garbage in colleges and universities. Unless something is done to change the status quo there then all is lost. We need to do away with tenure that provides almost total protection for these scuzz balls, no matter what they do, and get the population involved in the Boards of Regents, and we better do it damn quick.

    1. Don’t t send the kids to,5hise,places—trade schools are a better deal needed now—where the jobs are—sometimes six Figures..

    2. Unfortunately, this propagandizing begins in grade school and HS. By the time the kids get to the universities, they are well down the road towards “fairness”–a big lie told to the kids. “Let’s be ‘fair!'” “Let’s take all those billions that a very few have, and help the less fortunate.” “It just isn’t ‘fair’ that some people have so much and others so little.” Go to the elementary schools; you’ll see posters for being “fair” and “kind.”
      What is fair to you, isn’t necessarily “fair” to me. It is a subjective concept and is based in the biases and background of each of us.

  6. It was pointed out to me that his speeches were mostly previously given by ‘The Anointed One’ with just the tiniest bit of reshuffling of the words for the small-town mayor. His supporters should be asking a much more important question; Where do all of the unspent funds go, back to an unemployed politician, back to the supporters, or to ‘undisclosed recipients’, as there are reportedly a few million $$, give or take?


  8. Obviously dirty deal were in the works, and pressure from DNC had to be a HUGE part of it. Just as the DNC did for Loser-Clinton, they are clearing the way for Loser-Biden to rig the Nomination To him, and away from Bernie. They are forcing everyone else out before Super-Tuesday, so it doesn’t look quite so contrived as it definitely would AFTER Tuesday with others to vote for.

    Also, the word-for-word comparisons between Mayor Pete and Obama speeches were all over Social Media, weakening him. The DNC has to be in a panic after the last debate, and see no other way to get to a Nominee but to rig things. They always cheat and rig things – it’s all they know.

    And it’s ALL FOR NOTHING – Bernie Bros will be Rioting in Milwaukee, the DNC will fail again – and @REALDONALDTRUMP wins again on November 3, 2020 in a Landslide!

  9. He might have been bought out, or he may be sick. The centers for disease control has said that anal cancer is up over 100% in the last few years. Just glad he’s out we don’t need our children listening to the liberal press saying how great he is . There are now over at least 30 s.t.d’s and uti’s and this is rising. The gay and lesbian life style will make you sick.

    1. That could only help Biden. If people understood what he was saying, they wouldn’t vote for him…

  10. These treasonous hypocrite libs(lying sack of Schiff) don’t know the meaning of the truth! They are at it again and just as mentally deranged as the rest of the Globalists NAZI Muslim Commie Liberal Demoncrats! Deep State, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Hollywood, Academia, Fake News, Swamp News and you know the rest!! ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these lying Fake News deep state treasonous Godless NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs (Mutt Romney, Susan Collins, Lindsey Grahams ,Murkowski, Justice Roberts, Bolton and you know the rest of the traitors) post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  11. We can’t let Sanders get the nomination!!! We have always cherished our country as a free and Capitalist nation where people who work hard get rewarded be owning things. We can’t let Sanders get in and start taking whatever he wants and dictating to all Americans what he wants to do with our property and our money. Many generations of my family have been in many wars to defend our freedoms and we have to keep our country a free nation!! A lot of young people and immigrants probably think free college, free healthcare, etc. is a great idea and temptation to vote for a socialist but do they really understand what they’d be giving up in return? We would be living in a Non-free country and what you think should be or is yours will not be yours any longer. Say goodbye to being a free American! I for one am voting for President Trump again!! God bless Trump and God bless our free and capitalist nation!

  12. I’m planning to vote for Trump, but I believe that Mayor Pete was a very intelligent guy who happens to be gay. So what? Does being gay mean that you can’t have good ideas to offer the country? No.

  13. I bet it was strongly suggested to him to get out and save himself for 2024 ( I’m also betting there will be a new house in his future). Give him a few years to grow up and maybe find his own identity and hopefully his lies and BS will be a thing of the past for him. We had one failed social experiment with the kenyan and we are not ready for a gay socialist commie , hopefully we will never be. The dims are a dirty bunch of liars and crooks that can’t be trusted as far as they can be thrown but they are too stupid to face the facts. TRUMP 2020

  14. All of them bought out or promised something big in the White House . Somehow this will put Hillary in the running


  16. Dems love perversion. Rump rangers included. Run a gay black woman with a disability and you might win. Experience or intellect is not a problem it as asset. Maybe try Stacey Abrams.
