  1. a man with an opinion, why would he be discounted just because he’s an actor?

  2. Pete must be doing something right to have such a devote following of comment trolls spouting conspiracy theories.

    • @Dawn Oceanside Dude, you’re just going to exhaust yourself. You cant convince Republicans about the failures of Capitslism in the Trump era. They think the economy is sustainable past November of 2020, when Trump literally ceases to care about approval ratings. He just cut Medicare and Social Security, effective next year, and is revoking coverage for preexisting conditions with no healthcare replacement to make up for the *corporate tax cuts!*
      I’m serious, save your sanity. They are cult-members and will follow this clown off a cliff chanting “lock her up, lock her up…”

    • @Lilac Lizard You Lie! It is the other Dem Trolls who attack Bernie and give death threats. By spreading false narratives, lying and avoiding questions to his own own accountability, Pete has just failed in Iowa. If he is to behave like this now, for the Cave, then he may be just as dangerous as Trump is and his allegiance to the 1%ers!

    • That is the truth! Any video on youtube with a mention of Pete is completely saturated with super ignorant haters, for a lack of better words lmao. Well said

    • @Lilac Lizard keep believing the propaganda they feed you.

    • @D J if they cheat Bernie Sanders out of the nominee. You can forget about your blue tsunami. Nobody’s going to vote for the lesser of the two evil. That bulshit is in the past.

  3. Bernie’s common baby Along with millions of Americans

  5. Now I know why Kal-El let him get 🌪

  6. Also, Costner is a good dude!

    Love Pete, high intelligence, thoughtful, clear, speaks like a president, understands there is more than one kind of voter, young.

    Comments about Costner nice but let’s stay focused.

  8. 2 men out on their own against the wolves …. meh … Liam Neeson did it better

  9. He feels ok. Feels maybe it could be a little better for others, maybe. Overall, it’s ok except for Trump. Let’s keep it that way.
    If we find out he was paid for this… I wouldn’t be surprised.

  10. Very cool 🙂 I feel the same way about Pete!!

    • Me too. He reminds me of Robert Kennedy, and I’m well aware of how hyperbolic that sounds. The first time I heard him speak, I got chills and a feeling that he was destined for this time. I weighed the other candidates carefully, because I’m conscious of the old adage about how “Democrats fall in love and Republicans fall in line.”
      I know his platform front to back, and I truly can’t say that anyone else compares.
      It would be different if Sanders could actually deliver the promises he’s making, but they are *literally not possible.* I don’t get leftists who think Sanders or *any* president can pass M4A or the total tax restructuring he’s promised. It’s a non-starter! No matter what I say though, they attack Pete and every other candidate as establishment shills. They obviously don’t understand even the basics of how legislation works.

  11. Pete’s intellect, clear communication, and calm demeanor are extremely healing after what we have been going through with Trump. He is by far the most progressive candidate in the race right now – and I don’t have to hate Bernie to say that – I would support Bernie because he is great too… But I think Pete truly has what it takes to win the election.

    • agreed Delilah Weeks! I especially like his sharp wit & the way he defuses attacks from dummies with humour, without making them look/feel small & demeaned. He’s a formidable opponent to trump! He’s not going to alienate trump’s followers while crushing trump & their beliefs

    • I like Bernie too. A lot. But I hate his internet following. They think everything is about Bernie. EYE ROLL. They honestly remind me of Trump’s fan following. It’s destructive and myopic.

    • @Amanda Hooper Just as Trumpsters believe IMPEACHED President Trump’s LIES, Bernie Supporters agree with the Facts and Truths and the Experience that Bernie holds! Do not mistake Bernie strength for Trump ignorance. Bernie supporters bring the facts and the Big Reds are afraid!! They are trying to fracture the Blue Vote and we see that with New Hampshire!

    • @Amanda Hooper Big media has been pushing that, but let’s be honest the internet has good and bad supporters for every candidate.

      Bernie is being sincere on the policies he’s offering, where as Pete has shown himself to be a flipflopper, originally backing Bernie’s interpretation of democratic socialism and Medicare for all before turning on both.

    • @Amanda Hooper 4chan ran a campaign to act like Bernie followers and mess with people online. I saw the posts with my own eyes. Sad that the internet can be used to split our party that way and NBC will not investigate the story besides saying it’s Bernie supporters. Now everyone believes it and Trump will win. Better for NBC pocket books either way I guess.

  12. I don’t care what he thinks but I love what he Says.

  13. We love Pete! He’s our guy now. Russia and the corrupt GOP will not win this time around, they can try to cheat and troll online but we’ve all learned our lesson. Nobody is sitting it out this time around.

  14. Pete is URI

  15. Pete is the future of this country. This is the direction the country is moving in. I mean, more and more, were seeing smart young people becoming CEOs and leaders of some of the biggest companies in the world. I see a young Robert Kennedy in him. But that’s just me…

  16. I like Pete Buttigieg , he seems to be the most sensible level headed candidate. I like his thinking and his ideas are very good for America.

  17. Nothing definitive about Trump, he never says anthing in the least bit reliable or trustworthy.

  18. Daniel 11:37 KJV

  19. What a Great Interview

  20. I love Kevin Costner. I wish he’d play a villain more often, so I was particularly pleased to see him stump for Buttigieg
