Rising Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg comes to Wynwood

The May 18 episode of Saturday Night Live saw Ant-Man star Paul Rudd drafted in to play Buttigieg for a skit parodying talk show The View.

Later, after being asked about the $22 trillion national debt and deficits climbing toward $1 trillion a year, Buttigieg said deficit spending can be useful, especially if it goes toward investments that pay for themselves over time.

He wrote: "Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him".

Last week, Warren, a Democrat from MA, said in a series of Twitter posts that appearing on Fox would help the network burnish its reputation as a legitimate news organization, and expand its audience for advertising purposes. "They're the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters".

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, acknowledged Democrats' Fox News divide during Sunday's appearance, which drew an average of 1.1 million viewers, saying, "A lot of folks in my party were critical of me for even doing this". "Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems", he tweeted.

"If you're not using your town hall, I will", former Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., a 2020 presidential hopeful, tweeted at Warren last week.

"They forgot the people who got them there", Trump tweeted.

When Democratic presidential candidate and noted Dave Matthews Band fan Pete Buttigieg appeared at a Fox News town hall in New Hampshire Sunday night, he called out Fox News primetime opinion hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham for laundering white nationalist talking points during their broadcasts.

The same was true after Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders made his pitch about Medicare-for-all during a Fox News town hall last month.

"Kilmeade added that Buttigieg showed" absolutely no courage" for trashing Fox News opinion hosts without appearing on their programs, as if Kilmeade's colleague Shep Smith doesn't drag the opinion hosts regularly while receiving a paycheck from the network.

"Alfred E. Newman will never be President!" he concluded in the second tweet.
