First things first. A lot of people are asking, “How do you pronounce
this guy’s name?” (laughter) It’s pronounced “Pete.” Okay? It’s like “peaches,”
but you just stop, all right? Pete. That’s it. Oh, and as for his last name, we’re still
figuring that one out. Pete Buddha-gah…
Buddha-geh… Buddha-ged… WOMAN: South Bend Mayor
Pete Buddha-geh… Buddha-gedge.
I always say his name wrong. -MAN: Buddha-jeg.
-WOMAN: Buddha-jeg. MAN: Indiana mayor
Pete Bood-dedidge. Buddy-jeg. Buddy-jeg? -MAN: Buddy-gig.
-Buddygig? MAN:
Mayor Pete Buddha-edge-edge. Pete Boot-ed… edge-edge. Peter… Pete Boo…
Buddha-jedge. Peter Butt-tag,
the mayor of Indianapolis. “Buddha-jedge,”
but, uh, around South Bend, they just call me “Mayor Pete,”
and that’s fine with me. Oh, thank God. Mayor Pete. We’ll take Mayor Pete.
We’ll take Mayor Pete. Yeah, ’cause people were really
struggling with this one. It’s not “Budda-edge,”
it’s not “Bood-a-jay,” and it’s definitely not
“Butt-Tag.” (laughter) That was a weird one.
Butt-Tag? Butt Tag is actually the name
of another movie that Hickenlooper saw
with his mom. That’s what that is. It’s “boot-a-jej.” But now
that we’re all on the same page on how to say his name,
wha-what has he done? For a guy who’s only 37, Pete Buttigieg boosts…
boasts an impressive résumé. First elected mayor
of his home town at age 29. A Harvard-educated
Rhodes Scholar, as well as a lieutenant
in the Navy Reserve. MAN: Took an unpaid seven-month
leave during his mayoral term for a deployment
to Afghanistan. WOMAN: Not only the first openly
gay presidential candidate. He’s also a newlywed. WOMAN 2:
Would be a president of firsts. The first to be elected in his
thirties, the first millennial, the first openly gay commander
in chief and the first mayor. Okay, wait.
Wait, wait, wait, wait. Maltese-American? Are you guys telling me
this guy is part little dog? (laughter) Because if that’s true,
he is gonna win every white person’s vote
in this country. White people love them
little-ass dogs! Love them! But seriously, though, I-I can see why people are
impressed by Buttigieg. All right?
He has such a unique bio. He’s a veteran, a Harvard
graduate and a Rhodes Scholar, who’s openly gay,
and also, so young that if he served
two terms as president, when he came out,
he would still only be 46. Yeah. Plus, he’s a concert pianist and speaks seven languages, including Norwegian, which he learned just so that
he could read Norwegian books. (laughter) Compare that to America’s
current president who has read zero books and is fluent in zero languages. (laughter) (applause and cheering) In fact… In fact… Buttigieg is pretty much
the exact opposite of Donald Trump in every way. Like, I wouldn’t be surprised if he also has
the world’s largest hands. And I know…
I know you might be saying, “So what, Trevor? “Buttigieg is a cool guy.
So what? There are plenty of cool guys,
okay?” And that’s true–
there are plenty of cool guys. I mean, like, do you guys know
Bryan? He’s so cool. He has, like, a motorcycle,
and one time, he saw a dead body
by the train tracks. Super cool. But Buttigieg isn’t just
Bryan-level cool. No. As mayor, he’s also got
a record worth bragging about. WOMAN: He ran for mayor
at 29 years old in a place Newsweek labeled,
“a dying city.” He won. South Bend, Indiana
was one of the top ten most-decaying cities
in the country. He has done things to turn
around housing in the area. He has done things with
pedestrianizing the city. MAN:
He transformed an old factory into a business park
for tech companies. He raised the minimum wage
for city employees, and now, he is working
on a paid family leave plan. Okay, first of all, can we just
acknowledge how mean it is that someone made a list of the
top ten most-decaying cities? -(laughter)
-That’s heartless. That’s like People magazine
doing an issue on the world’s most
un (bleep) meth addict. Why would you do that?
I mean, it’s a great way for Scabby Greg
to get his name out there, but still, People, not cool. WOMAN:
Scabby Greg. This guy has pretty résumé. He has a pretty impressive
résumé, though, right? As mayor, he’s done many things. And I know many people will try
to dismiss Buttigieg as just some small-town mayor who’s too young
to be commander in chief, but according to him,
he sees his age as an asset. I belong to the generation that
provided a lot of the troops for the post-9/11 conflicts. The generation that’s gonna be on the business end
of climate change. And statistically,
we run the risk of being the first generation
in American history to actually be
worse off economically than our parents
if nothing is done to change the trajectory
of this economy. It’s a concern that calls on us to build an alliance among
generations to try to make sure that the future really is better
than the past. And you don’t get that
by promising, uh, to turn back the clock. Yeah, of course he doesn’t want
to turn back the clock. If we did,
he’d just be a baby in a suit. -(laughter)
-“I’m baby!” Now,
if you’re watching this going, “Trevor, why are you only
showing us the positive things about Pete Buttigieg?” Because that’s all we could
find, all right? No, I’m being serious. There’s no dirt on this guy.
Like, nothing. Usually candidates have
some skeletons somewhere, but even his skeletons
are singing his praises. “He gave me calcium
for my bones!” (laughter) And I’ll be honest, guys. I’m suspicious of any candidate
who is this perfect, right? I’ve been burned
too many times, okay? In fact, I think Mayor Pete
should do something bad to prove that he’s normal.
Yeah, yeah. Like, maybe he should just wear
a little blackface, you know. Maybe he should
defend Michael Jackson. Oh, I don’t know. Go and watch
porn with Hickenlooper’s mom. Something! Anything! Because until something
comes up, that’s basically all you need to know
about Pete Bur-Burgergoo. Goddamn it!
I was doing so well!

  1. This soy boy trying to use the Bible to justify abortion. Sleep tight miss. The Holy Bible – "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

  2. Im maltese. Its very hard to say our surnames to be honest, expecially if you are not Maltese.
    The way of saying the surname is
    in your language is:
    bud e geg
    Its still not perfect because in our vocabularly we say it differently to you.
    Example: You say e and how we say it, its like saying i…
    Examples of other surnames are:

  3. This guy running for president is a clown. Do you want a clown as president? Someone who won't do no change and no good for the country? Didn't think so, 59k other clowns liked this video, Hopefully because it's the daily show and not because they support a clown. Andrew Yang is the 2020 president winner. Fallow the #YangGang and change the world for the better or make it a clowns world filled with losers leaders who don't understand or want's anything else than power and more power. Lets give the power to the people and make the world better.

  4. 6:00 LMAO they changed the length of his face (on the left) so we would look more masculine …..what a strange thing to do

  5. He's not killing it in the polls, he pumped a bunch of money he got from the gay community into his ads. Andrew Yang a true grass roots movement person who didn't cheat like this douche is KILLING IT in the polls.

  6. Yang passed him. Pete is starting to unravel. Apparently billionaire support, private jet rides, and eloquent speaking isn’t relatable to Americans.

  7. Can you imagine the filth and homophobia that will exit Trumps mouth in a debate against this guy? It would be just insane. I'm a conservative and I'd vote for this guy too. Man when Trevor compared this dude to trump it was just sad

  8. Damn all that eloquence crap , Buttiass is vain , A cork sucka bootie bumper is an Abomination , Let alone as President of the USA' He could have the whole country playing Sodom & Gamora . The line has to be drawn and Screening should be a priority on morality when it comes to any office of a pinnacle nature..

  9. According to our current president, despite all these incredible attributes, he's short. Disqualifies him. That said, I've already donated to Mayor Pete . .

  10. Actually Donald Trump speaks and writes in the most powerful and effective way ever. He had the media against him, the Democrats against him, the googles etc against him, yet he beat the chosen one and has fundamentally changed how all presidents will govern from now on.

  11. This guy seems to be right on: concerned about the average Joe, interested in his communities, concerned about the future. Maybe he is someone to check out.

  12. Bravo! Very gracious and classy candidates for President, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
    Mayor Pete for being 37 years old, intellectual, war veteran who gives sensible answers in the President Debate. What a great role model for young and older voters.
    Voters of all ages, nationalities, democrats, independent & republicans should give him a chance

  13. Yes he has been impressive. He's done so much for his country. But all that aside, he needs to step it up in the debates if he's going to emerge at the top. Remember he has to beat out Elizabeth Warren. That's going to take a big series of moments.

  14. His decisions are heavily influenced by big doners and establishment, you can research his controversy about firing a police officer, that explains a lot about how his presedency would look like

  15. Mayor Pete is extremely impressive. He is going places. I would love to see a debate between him and Trump. Even Trump's MAGGOTS might see what a disgusting, pathological liar Trump really is.

  16. So we say Butt – itch – itch? – Well aside of that, he looks like the most capable candidate after Gabbard ruined herself by attacking Trump for calling him a pimp.

  17. Donald Trump is going to mop the floor with this FULL BLOWN SICK SICK SEXULAL PERVERT in the 2020 election. DONALD TRUMP 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. didn't pete bootyjuice speak out against chelsea manning? isn't nobody even questioning the fact that he has no policies at all? no m4a? and lets not forget that he is a warmonger and takes money from big farma?

  19. Great, that's all we need now is a queer trying to run the United States. It's no wonder we r a laughing stock to the world.

  20. Well Trevor, Donald Trump is a multi billionaire and married to a super model, what have you accomplished other than sucking Jeffery's Zuckers derriere?

  21. This guy is just another Democratic politician on the make. He has stated that Medicare for All would deprive people of their choice of physicians. I've been on Medicare for over 10 years and I have been able to choose the physicians I want to go to. So, why does he lie like that? Are the insurance companies giving him money? What other reason would he have for twisting the truth like that? I'd love to see a gay president, but I don't want the first gay president to be a sellout to the corporations like the last "democratic" president.

  22. Funny how a challenging name can actually be a benefit to this candidate. Just saying his name openly challenges the intelligence of any reporter interviewing him. Say his name wrong and you lose the ability to ask a question. Sorry next reporter… Someone who can properly pronounce a name…


  24. Pete was a little baby on stage. Thinks his words don't matter or he doesn't care how people who have had gun violence in their lives are affected. He needs to grow some courage

  25. Compare the polls from March to today. Pete has FALLEN, likely to his knees, in most polls. He used to be near 10% but fell to below 5. A never in the finish asshat. He is very smart. That is why he went into the Navy. All those men…So much time, so many Dicks…South Bend has taken a beating since this fag took over. Imagine 38% unemployment across America. You go asshat!

  26. boodah gay boodah get boodah gag boodah geh booda geh jueh booda jag boodehdage buddick jag buddy gig booty edge edge bood edge edge edge edge peter butt tag

  27. Hey look the gay mayor had some success in a democrat destroyed city. Before mayor blow job south bend was controlled by 75 years of democrats.

  28. People in our Iowa town stood in the rain because there wasn't room for all of them in the hall. He had to speak when he got off the bus, speak in the hall, come out and have pictures with the crowd then back in the hall so the first group could leave and the next group could come in. Our town had no idea that he would draw such a crowd. He did seem very nice, very likable young man, smart, and had good ideas.

  29. God said one woman and one man not right for two men to think they can marry sad sad that a abomation in God sight

  30. Trevor Noah, you are hypocrite, the same guy you are pressing hate black people, look what he did to the police chief when you became mayor.
