    Love him here!! So smooth.

    • Sara says:

      Hot Damn

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      @ JJ, I read about it o my news app, as I never watch the Faux News, I was
      delighted beyond words how you could hear a pin drop with the facial expressions and the lack of the ability for the anchors to process what they heard from Buttigieg!! It was brilliant!! I emailed it to ALL of my siblings!!

  2. Lucy says:

    I had a dream about Garrett Hedlund a few nights ago. It was good. *He* was good.

  3. holly hobby says:

    He was so calm about it. In another segment he had Steve Doocy agreeing with him. I think that’s the way to talk to those people.

  4. Other Renee says:

    Omg Pete was a total STAR!! That was amazing. Not just what he said but how he said it. So condescending and professional at the same time.

    • TeamMeg says:

      Mayor Pete knocked it out of the park with that comment! His delivery was impeccable. The female Fox host appeared temporarily dumbstruck afterwards. Talk about a GOTCHA moment!

      • Carol says:

        Yeah, I didnt get the feeling that Fox News folks were dumbstruck with Buttigieg’s AMAZING answer. I think that’s reaching. However, I LOVE Buttigieg and wished he won the primary. I would vote for him as Prez any day.

    • bananapanda says:

      Mayor Pete just spent a couple weeks playing Pence as part of the debate prep (also bc he know Pence from Indiana days). He said that Pence’s true talent is lying with a straight face in a cool calm manner. Looks like he’s picked up that delivery method to trick the Fox news anchors!

  5. Regina Falangie says:

    He Ginsburned them!!!!!!

  6. Merricat says:

    Lol. That was fantastic. I especially loved the frozen looks of the Fox talking heads.

  7. Josie Bean says:

    They were no doubt speechless because Mr Buttigieg came across as a real gentleman. They are not used to that and were not sure how to react.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Right? I wouldn’t characterize what he said as a ‘rant’, he coolly & calmly slayed them with his words. Words that came in complete sentences, too!

  8. Mignionette says:

    Pete said:

    ‘I’m over all y’all fukkery FOX”

  9. Lady2Lazy says:

    Biden’s Twitter response in regards to the fly is hysterical!! I couldn’t stop laughing about it! And let’s face it, Pence did not gain ANY women last night as he mansplaining not only Harris but the moderator as well. If he thinks he was effective in gaining women voters on the fence, he lost if not all, a majority.

    Buttigieg— brilliant- a slow clap to you sir! and that is the last you will see of pete on Fox news….
    i am an evangelical xian and i will NEVER understand the support for such a fruitless, immoral man. I have not and will not every support him or his demagoguery or demigod aspirations.

    • lanne says:

      I’m curious–how do you fare then with members of your congregation? Do they know how you feel? Do any of them feel the same way? (These are genuine questions I’d love to hear answered. I’m sure there are a lof of Christians who feel the way you do and I wonder how much they can speak up)

      • drbessy says:

        I find xians on both sides on the issue of the orange one. (some are more vocal than others and of course media is bias on how it spun and reported). I try not to judge either way bc there is so much more than one man that goes into choosing parties as it relates to ones beliefs. I will leave the ultimate judging up to my creator.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      Because it’s not about the immoral man. It’s about the workings around the party that pushes that man. What they want aligns are times with evangelicals. Deals with the devil is what it amounts to.

    • Holly hobby says:

      Oh you mean you don’t like him because he’s gay right? Let’s call it what it is.

  11. Lady2Lazy says:

    I cannot wait to see this West Wing episode coming next week!! I watched this show religiously during its entire run. Award winning cast and unprecedented scripts and directing that truly brought to light the inner functions of the Oval Office. It also mentions special guests including Michelle Obama and Immanuel from the broadway hit Hamilton, and others as well!! Can’t wait!!

  12. Bibi says:

    Peter Buttigieg has a hot smooth game. lol he completely smashed them. lol

    • Call_Me_Al says:

      We really need more of him on every channel. And more of people like him, really turning it around to the real issues here and not pretending that these people are legit public servants to be debated with. Trump is an obvious crook, traitor, rapist, racist, bully, dictator, and ill person who is unfit for office, and Pence and the others have sold their souls for political gain.

  13. mellie says:

    Mayor Pete is not having it!

  14. BeanieBean says:

    Hooray for women chemists! I was thrilled to see Charpentier & Doudna in the news. We need more than just Marie Curie to celebrate.

  15. Wiglet Watcher says:

    Hahahahahahahahaha WHAT?! Go Pete. Lay it out plain and simple.

  16. Jayna says:

    His complete interview on Fox & Friends was brilliant in support of Biden/Harris. The guy really never interrupted him. And the few times he tried, Pete moved through it.


  17. Stacie Vanchieri says:

    He is SO good at this. Calm, respectful, but he sticks the knife right in. Love him

  18. olliesmom says:

    I love mayor Pete. I hope that he takes another crack at running for President.

  19. Dina says:

    Omgggg yesss. Brilliant

  20. Pixelated says:

    Hair stylist here! Margot’s color is definitely recently refreshed because of the brighter money piece ie the Face framing highlights and also the softened grow out. I actually really like this and I wonder if this extra low maintenance technique will become trendier with people potentially not wanting to go to salons as often.

    • detritus says:

      I noticed that too. It’s reaaaally nicely blended and very cool toned. Her hair person is real good.

      I do wonder if she went a little longer between maintenance visits and decided to switch it up.

  21. Joan Callamezzo says:

    Pete Buttigieg serves it up like this ALL the time. Other examples: Regarding Trump-“I don’t need to throw myself a military parade to know what a convoy looks like.” Regarding Pence-“If you have a problem with my homosexuality your problem is with my Maker sir.”
    He always delivers the truth succinctly not unlike AOC. He has excellent policy ideas and he’s brilliant with a heart of gold. He was my first choice for President, he’s working tirelessly for Joe and Kamala and I look forward to seeing what position he has in the Cabinet.

  22. Apple says:

    I 100% respect he is a happily married gay man. But he is my fantasy boyfriend.

  23. Ladiabla says:

    This is one of the reasons why I would’ve been super excited about a Pres Pete. Can you imagine him debating evil orange? He would have destroyed his asssss, without even breaking a sweat. SMOOTH AF. I wish Joe and Kamala would make him Secretary of State. The man is rhodes scholar and a veteran. Love him.

  24. sd says:

    Mayor Pete is WAY too smart for those Fox Yahoos. Love seeing this!

  25. Rise and Shine says:

    I love him. He is brilliant and cool. I appreciate how much he understands the importance of this election and is all in for Biden and Harris. He will have a place in the cabinet, he will do well, and yes, someday his day will come and he will shine. For now though, as he is asking us, VOTE BLUE, and Mayor Pete, I love you and thank you!

  26. Mel says:

    Ha! Nothing like silencing the arrogant t and foolish.

  27. Tursitops says:

    I can’t believe that this needs to be pointed out in 2020, but the word for someone who inspires women is *heroine*.

  28. Carol says:

    Our next President! He shut them down.
