Last night was the final Democratic debate of the 2019 calendar year, and the seven participants were in rare form…that’s for sure.
Much of the ire of the Democratic Party last night was aimed at South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, thanks to the recent revelations regarding his high-dollar donor dinners and fancy fundraising follies. You see, the Democrats have spent an inordinate amount of resources attempting to convince Americans that they are the party of small donors and grassroots support. Buttigieg’s recent fundraising haul flies in the face of that supposed distinction.
But that’s not the only thing that Mayor Pete was being grilled on, and Senator Amy Klobuchar took things a whole lot further during a post-debate interview on CNN.
Klobuchar said, “I do think there’s a double standard. Now, that doesn’t mean that he is not qualified. He is. But do I think that a woman who had lost the statewide race, lost the race for the DNC, was a mayor of a small town would be able to be the candidate to head up our ticket? I don’t. But that’s not my problem. My problem is convincing America that I can be that person. And so, that is my case.”
It seem as though Klobuchar is insinuating that Buttigieg’s gender may have something to do with the perception of his qualifications – an ugly attack coming from the party of “tolerance”.
The debate was likely a make-0r-break moment for Klobuchar, who has been flirting with the top tier of candidacy for several weeks.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
