Bernie Sanders Turns Red in Intense Exchange with Pete Buttigieg at Democrat Argument

LAS VEGAS, Nevada– Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg pursued Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the start of the Democrat dispute Wednesday night, triggering the furious “democratic socialist” to turn a bright shade of red.

Though the argument began with jabs at billionaire oligarch Michael Bloomberg, the previous New York City mayor who appeared onstage for the first time, Buttigieg aimed his fire at the frontrunner also: “Let’s put forward somebody who is in fact a Democrat.”

Their exchange was as follows:

Let’s put forward someone who actually lives and works in a middle-class area in an industrial Midwestern city.

[Crowd gasps, cheers]

Buttigieg: L ook– we shouldn’t have to choose between one prospect who wishes to burn this party down and another prospect who wants to purchase this party out. We can do much better.

Q: Senator sanders, are you polarizing?

Buttigieg: Firstly, look– my campaign is sustained by numerous thousands of factors.

Sanders: Consisting Of 46 billionaires.

Sanders: We have more union support than you have actually ever dreamed of. We have the assistance of unions all across this nation.

Buttigieg: Yeah, but the vision I’m putting forward has the assistance of the American people.

Sanders: Really.

Buttigieg: We can in fact provide health care without taking it away from anyone. We can actually empower workers and lift incomes without further polarizing this nation. And we can construct a motion without having legions of our supporters online and in person assaulting Democratic figures and union leaders alike.

Later, Buttigieg targeted Sanders over claims that his supporters have behaved strongly, particularly using sexism. “What is it about your campaign in specific that appears to be encouraging this behavior more than others?”

Sen. Amy Klobucher (D-MN) recommended a service: “We might nominate a female.”
