Slow Jam the News with Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Slow Jam the News with Mayor Pete Buttigieg


-Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg is continuing to gain support
in the Democratic primary. I was going to
make a joke about this. But I don’t think
it needs a joke. I think it needs
to be slow-jammed. You know what I’m talking about,
Tariq? -Yeah, Jimmy,
I think you’re saying you want to slow-jam this news. -That’s right.
I want to slow-jam the news. And I’m not the only one. [ Cheers and applause ] -Hello. Hello. I’m Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and I, too, would like
to slow-jam this news. -Hit me five times. [ Slow music plays ] -Last month, I officially
launched my campaign for president
of the United States. I believe it’s time for
a new generation of leaders. I’m the 37-year-old mayor
of South Bend, Indiana. I’m a Rhodes Scholar and a veteran of the war
in Afghanistan. And though I’m running this race
to beat President Trump, I’m not going to spend
all my time talking about President Trump. I want to talk about you and
the needs of everyday Americans. -Oh, yeah. [ Laughter ] Pete Buttigieg wants to satisfy
all your needs. [ Light laughter ] Ever since he declared
his candidacy, America’s been all hot
and bothered for him. And now Mayor Pete’s
going all in. [ Light laughter ] -♪ He’s going all in ♪ -All in. -♪ He’s ready and prepared
for a primary battle ♪ ♪ His name is worth 800 points
in Scrabble ♪ [ Laughter and applause ] -Now, I’ve got a question
for you, marvelous Mr. Mayor. You may run a city,
but what makes you think you can measure up
to the presidency? Aren’t you worried about
performance anxiety? -Actually, I’m not. As mayor of South Bend,
I re-energized the economy and invested in the industries
of tomorrow. And as president, I’ll continue
to tear down the barriers that keep Americans
from having a fair shot. I’ll get big money
out of politics, and I’d support getting rid
of the electoral college, even if it means fighting
these issues out in court. -Mm-mm-mm. Court is in session.
[ Laughter ] And the honorable “Butti-judge”
is presiding. [ Laughter and applause ] All rise if you haven’t
already risen. -♪ If you haven’t
already risen, y’all ♪ ♪ It’s all right ♪ ♪ His service to the country
has been outstanding ♪ ♪ His campaign is on fire
like King’s Landing ♪ -Now, listen here, PB and bae. You’ve had an explosive start
to your campaign, but how do you plan
to end it with a bang? -Well, in the coming months, I’m going to be traveling
across the nation, meeting people
from all walks of life. I want to show folks
that the Republican Party does not have a monopoly
on freedom and patriotism. Those values are alive and well
with Democrats, too. -Wait a second. If you’re saying
the Buttigieg bus is stopping all around
the country, then I guess that means… -♪ Butti, Butti, Butti
rocking everywhere ♪ ♪ Butti, Butti, Butti, Butti
rocking everywhere ♪ ♪ Butti, Butti, Butti, Butti
rocking everywhere ♪ ♪ Rocking everywhere ♪ -Rocking everywhere. [ Cheers and applause ] -Now, while we’re getting
all Butti-jiggy with it, I got to ask, is it true
you hooked up with Fox News at the start of your campaign? Because some might say
that makes you a naughty boy. -Actually, I’m proud to say
that I was the first candidate to appear on Fox News Sunday. Because I don’t believe
in leaving out an entire portion
of the country. Americans have a lot more
in common than we’re given credit for. From the coal miner adjusting
to the changing economy to the DREAMer fighting to stay in the only home
she’s ever known, we all just want to belong, so, yes, I want to invite
everyone to join this campaign, Democrats and Republicans. -Democrats and Republicans? So what you’re saying is,
you go both ways? [ Light laughter ] -No, I’m just gay. [ Cheers and applause ] -Okay, D.C.’s Doogie Howser. Last question before we put
this interview to bed. Since you’re new
on the political scene, have you ever thought of asking
President Trump for advice? -Actually, when it comes
to my qualifications, I have more government
experience than the president and more executive experience
than the vice president. So if they ever want advice, I’m sure their interns
can show them how to DM me. [ Light laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ]
-Whoa. I didn’t expect the “Leave It
to Beaver” kid to pack a punch. [ Light laughter ] -Sorry, who? -You know, Beaver Cleaver
from “Leave It to Beaver,” that show from the ’50s? -Sorry, Jimmy, must be
a generational thing. [ Laughter ] -♪ Buttigieg has got an edge ♪ -This is the season
for boldness and heart. -It’s the job of a leader
to shine light in the dark. -♪ The country is aching,
there is no mistaking ♪ ♪ He’ll fight for our rights
like he fought for this nation ♪ ♪ The primary’s coming,
and then we must choose ♪ -And that is how
we slow-jam the news. -Oh, yeah. -Give it up for
Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

    Hi I'm mayor Pete. I allowed raciats cops to kill blacks in my own city. And I can speak multiple languages so I'm qualified to be the president. I take big donations from corporations and I have zero policies.
    I'm gay so the media will like that, and I'll do whatever it takes to make American corporations richer …

    Buttigieg comes across as a normal human being.Β  I like his calmness, intelligence, thoughtfulness, sense of humor and most of all, I feel I can trust him.

    logical change

    Continuing to gain support… FROM BIG CORPORATIONS AND BILLIONAIRES!!!

    No seriously look at his fundraisers in WALL STREET, Hollywood and Silicon Valley. He is polling 2-5% yet has raised more money than others because he is accepting big money. So many better options. Yang, Tulsi, Sanders are all refusing money from big corporations and only accepting small individual contributions.

    Hey Pete …how is God for abortion when life begins at conception ? that means when the Dr says " your pregnant woman ..your going to have a baby ! " ..shame on you using the bible to justify your sick politics Β ! Democrat policies suck anyway …they are gearing us all toward totalitarianism for sure if they were to win !..they want total control over every aspect of your lives ! …they are already saying they will destroy the 2cd A ..if you listen ..that was put there Β to protect Americans from tyrannical governments …they are telling you what to eat ..what to use as transportation .socialist commies will break the middle class into slumsΒ …Vote them all out of office !
