Gabbard Attacks Buttigieg at 5th Democratic Debate in Atlanta

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, November 21, 2019

Last night, at the 5th Democratic Debate held at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, Hawaiian Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard (2) – whose polling numbers are consistently “tanked,” and has announced that she will not seek reelection to the House – attacked South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, mischaracterizing his remarks made in response to a question at an earlier forum in which 5 of the “Democratic presidential candidates addressed issues impacting the nation’s Latino population at a forum held at Cal State Los Angeles on Sunday.”

The question asked him at that LA forum was, “Mr. Mayor, after a number of Americans were murdered in northern Mexico, President Trump suggested sending U.S. troops to help Mexico deal with the cartels. With your military experience, is there a way to deal with the cartels that doesn’t violate Mexico’s sovereignty?”

The YouTube video link below shows the question and his answer, uninterrupted, and in context.

At last night’s debate in Atlanta, in response to a question asked by a moderator, Representative Gabbard said that, well… here’s a link to the excerpted pertinent portion video of the exchange which she posted to her Twitter account.

Mayor Buttigieg replied to Gabbard’s attack by opening with, “I know that it’s par for the course to take remarks out of context, but that is outlandish, even by the standards of today’s politics.”

Gabbard interrupted him asking, “Are you saying that you didn’t say that?”

Buttigieg gave a thorough response, but a moderator prevented him from further engagement in a more thoroughly detailed response to her after reply, during that brief exchange.
