Buttigieg changed his fundraising policy after getting spanked by a teenager

I can’t stop laughing at this. So Buttigieg is at a campaign event talking to teenagers with the maddening track of Panic! At the Disco’s “High Hopes” cranked to 11 in the background because some focus group told him that if he says “hope” enough people might start to associate him with Obama and not the physical manifestation of Alfred E. Neuman.

Then he makes the mistake of taking a question from this kid. Kid asks Buttigieg if taking money out of politics means not doing private fundraisers with billionaires…. And Buttigieg curtly says no and walks away.

Buttigieg’s peeps have since explained that he’s still taking dough from rich and powerful people, but he’s going to let the press into his fundraisers so you can finally see who his rich and powerful supporters are. That video has since been viewed 3 million times, though 50,000 of those are probably Elizabeth Warren.

At this point, I am genuinely starting to wonder if this race is going to come down to Bernie Sanders and Nanny Bloomberg.
