Look out folks, it looks like presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg needs a safe space!
While meeting with children in California on Sunday, he whined that President Donald Trump is "really mean."
When one of the children questioned how Buttigieg planned to beat Trump in the 2020 election, he replied, “We can’t play his game, You know how he’s really mean? He likes to call people names? ” he asked. “If we do it his way, I think we’re going to lose, so we have to change the whole game.”
For today’s event in Palo Alto, Pete asked all the children to sit in front and ask the first questions. Why?
“When you look into the eyes of a child, your moral priorities suddenly become clearer.”

It's politics, buddy. You know what's actually mean? Defending the murder of unborn children! Or trying to violate Americans' constitutional right to arm themselves. How about those for table topics with the kiddos, huh Buttigieg?
Buttigieg told the child that he would focus his campaign on issues that mattered in people’s lives, not just the fight with Trump. He also said he was the ideal challenger to Trump in 2020 because he was the “opposite.”
“A lot of times, when Americans are picking a president they kind of want the opposite of the last president, part of why we think I’m the best candidate to beat Trump,” he said.

Buttigieg answered some other questions at the event, including promising one kid a bigger bunny and choking up in response to a question about ending school shootings.
He spoke about implementing gun control to keep weapons away from schools.
“We cannot let you down,” the mayor concluded, “Those of us in elected office owe it to you to do whatever it takes, even if it means losing an election every now and then, to keep you safe.”
He sounds even more sissy than Barack Obama, and I did not think that to even be possible.
