Pete Buttigieg: A Majority Of Americans Want Higher Wages And Healthcare


>>Stephen: WE’RE BACK HERE,
WE’RE BACK, EVERYBODY, WITH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE PETE
BUTTIGIEG, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WINE CAVE, OKAY. YOU GOT A LOT OF CRITICISM. NO, WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THE
WINE CAVE.>>OKAY.>>Stephen: YOU TOOK SOME
CRITICISM FOR HAVING A FUNDRAISER IN A WINE CAVE IN
CALIFORNIA. AND RAISED A TON OF MONEY AND
HAD, YOU KNOW, BOTTLES OF WINE WORTH MULTIPLE HUNDREDS OF
DOLLARS. SEEMED VERY ELITE TO PEOPLE. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR HAVING
THAT DINNER BECAUSE I MADE JOKES ABOUT YOU DOING THAT.>>DID YOU.>>Stephen: AND THE WINE CAVE
SENT ME SOME VERY GOOD WINE.>>REALLY?>>Stephen: YES. (LAUGHTER)
SO THANK YOU, THANK YOU WINE CAVE, I DON’T KNOW WHO TO THANK
BUT THANK YOU.>>THERE IS SOME REALLY GOOD
CHEESE IN THE GREEN ROOM RIGHT NOW.>>Stephen: A CHEESE CAVE.>>I APPRECIATE THE CHEESE.>>Stephen: DO YOU UNDER STAND
WHY PEOPLE MIGHT CRIT SOIZ THAT, BECAUSE THERE IS, ESPECIALLY
THIS YEAR THERE IS A SENSE THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE BEHOLDEN TO
SPECIAL INTERESTS, A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY IN ORDER TO INFLUENCE
CANDIDATES. WE NEED A GRASS ROOTS COALITION
OF PEOPLE AND THAT TURNS SOME PEOPLE OFF.>>I UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION. AND I’M NOT A FAN OF THE
CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM WE HAVE TODAY. I’M ALSO A FAN OF BEATING DONALD
TRUMP. AND WHAT WE’VE GOT TO DO RIGHT
NOW, FIRST OF ALL MAYOR OF SOUTH BEND, INDIANA, IS NOT EXACTLY AN
ESTABLISHMENT FUNDRAISING POWERHOUSE, SO I WOULDN’T BE
HERE IF WE HADN’T GOTTEN HUNDREDS MUCH THOUSANDS OF
PEOPLE TO GO TO– FOR MEAK.COM, CHIP IN A FEW BUCKS AND BUILD
THIS CAMPAIGN. IF SOMEBODY CAN GIVE UP TO THE
LEGAL LIMIT WHICH IS $2,800 AND THEY ARE WILLING TO DO THAT TO
SUPPORT MY VISION FOR MOVING THIS COUNTRY FORWARD, THEN I
REALLY THINK THEY SHOULD HELP GET THIS DONE AND I WILL MAKE
EXACTLY ONE PROMISE TO ANYBODY, WHETHER THEY ARE GIVING THREE
BUCKS ONLINE OR THE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE BY LAW. THE PROMISE IS I’M GOING TO TAKE
THAT CONTRIBUTION, AND I’M GOING TO USE IT TO BUILD A CAMPAIGN
THAT IS GOING TO DEFEAT DONALD TRUMP SO WE CAN ACTUALLY GET THE
REFORMS THIS COUNTRY NEED. (APPLAUSE).>>Stephen: I HOPE YOU’RE
RIGHT, I HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT. WAS IT A NICE WINE CAVE? WAS IT NICE DOWN THERE?>>I HAVE NOT BEEN– I DON’T
HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE.>>Stephen: THERE AREN’T A LOT
OF WINE CAVES IN SOUTH BEND, INDIANA.>>WE DO HAVE A CHEESE CAVE IN
SOUTH BEND, INDIANA.>>Stephen: GOOD, AMERICAN
CHEESE?>>PROBABLY, BUT YEAH, WE HAVE A
REGULAR BASEMENT AT HOME, I THINK THERE IS SOME WINE DOWN
THERE.>>Stephen: NOW LET’S SAY YOU
WIN, OKAY. LET’S TALK ABOUT CHANGING
WASHINGTON OR ADDING A PROGRESSIVE AGENDA TO OUR
GOVERNMENT. YOU SAW PROGRESS IN THE
GOVERNMENT CANNOT DEPEND OS ON THE GOOD FAITH OF THE GOP. SO IF YOU ARE PRESIDENT, HOW DO
YOU ACHIEVE WHAT YOU ARE PROMISING NOW.>>SO HERE IS WHAT WE HAVE GOING
FOR US. EVEN, EVEN MORE THAN WHAT WAS
AVAILABLE TO PRESIDENT OBAMA A DECADE AGO, THERE IS A POWERFUL
AMERICAN MAJORITY THAT WANTS TO SEE THESE CHANGES HAPPEN. THAT WANTS TO SEE HIGHER WAGES,
THAT THINKS IT IS RIDICULOUS THAT A CORPORATION LIKE AMAZON
OR CHEVRON PAY ZERO ON TAXES IN BILLIONS OF PROFITS. EVEN ON HEALTH CARE. MAKING SURE THAT EVERY AMERICAN
IS INSURED, EVEN IN AREAS WHERE MY PARTY HAS BEEN ON THE DEFENSE
IN THE PAST, IMGRAILINGS REFORM, DOING SOMETHING ABOUT GUN
VIOLENCE. CLIMATE, EVERY ONE OF THESE
HOOS, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, EVEN IN CONSERVATIVE STATES WANT
SOMETHING DONE. SO IF YOU CAN’T HAVE A GOOD
FAITH CONVERSATION AND THERE IS NOT A LOT OF GOOD FAITH
ESPECIALLY IN THE SENATE GOP RIGHT NOW, THEN I THINK WHAT YOU
HAVE TO DO IS GO DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE WHO EXPECT THIS OF THEIR
LEADERS EVEN IN MORE CONSERVATIVE DISTRICTS OR
STATES, TO ME, THAT IS THE BEST USE OF THE BIG AIRPLANE THAT
COMES WITH THE OVAL OFFICE. THE PRESIDENT USES MOSTLY FOR
THE PURPOSE OF TRAVELING BETWEEN GOLF COURSES WITH HIS NAME ON IT
I DON’T EVEN GOLF. AND MY IDEA OF THE BEST USE OF
THAT AIRPLANE IS TO FLY IT RIGHT INTO THE BACKYARD OF A MEMBER OF
CONGRESS OR THE SENATE WHO IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF THESE
IDEAS, DEFYING NOT ONLY MY WHITE HOUSE BUT THEIR OWN VOTERS. AND REMIND THEM OF THE DAYLIGHT
BETWEEN THEM AND THEIR OWN REPRESENTATIVES, AND SEE IF
THAT, THAT SIMPLE POLITICAL POWER FINALLY HAS THE EFFECT OF
REUNITING SOME OF THESE SENATORS WITH THEIR CONSCIENCE. AND IF IT DOESN’T, THEN MAKING
SURE WE DO OUR PART TO GET A NEW SENATOR.>>Stephen: THE PRESIDENCY IS
L VESTED WITH ENORMOUS POWER RIGHT NOW. IF YOU BECAME PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES ARE THERE ANY POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY THAT
YOU WOULD SURRENDER? BECAUSE IT IS A SNOWBALL OF
POWER THAT JUST KEEPS GETTING BIGGER IN THE PRESIDENCY. AND WE JUST SAW THE WORST ABUSE
OF IT YESTERDAY BY NOT HOLDING THE PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE FOR
TRYING TO MESS WITH OUR ELECTIONS. WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP.>>I WILL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE
THAT IS AS IMPORTANT TO ME AS SOMEBODY WHO SERVED OVERSEAS, IF
I AM EVER COMPELLED TO USE FORCE AND GO TO CONGRESS FOR AN
AUTHORIZEATION TO DO IT, I WILL MAKE SURE IT INCLUDES A
THREE-REAR SUNSET, EXPIRATION DATE. SO THAT IF THERE EVER DID NEED
TO BE A RENEWAL, IF I OR ANOTHER PRESIDENT REALLY THOUGHT THAT
WAS NECESSARY, YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK TO CONGRESS AND HAVE
THAT CONVERSATION. BECAUSE ALSO YOU KNOW, CONGRESS
HAS BEEN I THINK ALL TOO HAPPY TO LEAVE SOME OF ITS WAR POWERS
TO THE SIDE BECAUSE IT IS JUST MESSY, DIFFER AND COMPLICATED.>>Stephen: AT THE DON’T WANT
TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A DECISION THEY MAKE.>>BUT IF PEOPLE CAN FIND A
COURAGE TO SERVE, THEY OUGHT TO BE HAVE THE COURAGE ON WHETHER
TO SEND THEM THERE OR KEEP THEM THERE. I WILL CONSTRAIN MYSELF AS
PRESIDENT BY MAKING SURE THAT VOTE HAPPENS IF A CONFLICT GOES
ON MORE THAN THREE YEARS.>>Stephen: MR. MAYOR, THANK
YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG, EVERYBODY. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH
MR. PATTON OSWALT

  1. Horrible humans on this thread…the guy is brilliant, articulate and wildly capable…you Bernie Bots need to grow up, shut up and go away

  2. This clown, Wall Street Pete sheesh. His fake AF healthcare ‘all who want it’ bullshit doesn’t give universal healthcare esp not when he takes money from big Pharma, health insurers, lobbyists. He never rly talks about ANYTHING just gives empty platitudes. Gems like “we cannot solve the problems before us by looking back”…wtf

  3. Platitude Pete will do what his 40 billionaire donors want him to do, surprisingly raising wages and universal healthcare is not one of the things that the billionaires want him to do. Tax cuts and screwing the American people are their top priority.

  4. south bend people are saying pete tolerated racism in his police force, did not correct them, let it get out of hand. he is not a leader. he could not convince the police that racism was unacceptable. he allowed it.

  5. If he does not agree w u$a's campaign norms, then don't follow them, as Sanders' eg shows. We will loose to another centrist.
    It’s Our Revolution. History is what's happening NOW!

  6. And Sneaky Pete ain't gonna do anything about it.
    Thanks Stephen for this smooth handjob of an Interview with a Canditate,
    who invested in the Iowa App and prematurely declared himself the winner.

    Great Job keep up with the Trump Impression. #McResistance

  7. This guy said in March that he was fully behind M4A. He also said he was for decriminalizing border crossings. Then he saw that he was stagnant in the polls and he decided to pivot to the center and started saying the exact opposite to what he was saying before. Don't elect this fraud.

  8. Pete's campaign is funded mostly by the wealthy powerful elite, don't be a sucker and fall for this guys bs, he doesn't represent us, vote for Bernie.

  9. Here's what he's all about for his generation:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rz4v6SvwQsY&list=PLvS19ktD5fHiXzRg_N-UPT7eYcVyTrp9C&index=4

  10. Hey guys we are a republic not a democracy. Check out the pledge of allegiance. It's always been a republic and never a pure democracy.

  11. Pete supports white supremacist in his policen force and fires black employees on the command of the WS cops he loves. he's a selfish monster with less politic-ing than trump now. Wall street pete is a NO for me.

  12. Corporates' media tools quietly starting to push for their status quo candidate. Sad to See Colbert and Trevor Noah is doing whatever they have been told to do.

  13. Steve should get his old show back now that has all this mainstream access. He could really pin them down, like he used to….

  14. I swear people will look back years from now and be in disbelief that THIS fool got even close to being president. Good riddance

  15. It always amazes me when people ignore that Bernie Sanders has been invited more often on Colbert's show than anyone else save John Oliver (who sometimes fills in when a scheduled guest can't make it). Colbert is obviously a Bernie supporter. That does not mean he cannot be nice around the other candidates.

  16. As a moderate, the toxic behavior of Sanders supporters has really turned me off. If Buttigieg does not get the nomination, I'll be voting Trump.

  17. This jerk spews nothing but BS. All words that are meaningless! He latches onto Bernies talking points and uses them for his totally lying crap. Unreal.

  18. Newsflash to Pete: President Trumps economy is giving Americans wage increases and health care benefits. Pete another out of touch swamp creature.

  19. Pete is NOT an outsider new voice. He is part of DNC machine, he ran for DNC chair but LOST. He ran for state and LOST. Like Trump he built his local city success by discriminating against poor, black and brown people. Like Trump he's in it for himself and not for us.

  20. Everyone calling him Mayor Cheat……stop stooping to Trump's level. Either explain your case or opinion but if you accept acting like a child, the GOP has won by lowing your standards.

  21. Let me lay it out for you.
    This ass wipe wants to exploit the system.
    Butti-boy joined the military and swore an oath to protect AND uphold the Constitution of the United States.
    Yet!! Yet!! He wants to strip us of our 2nd Amendment Rights. By exploiting the office of the president if elected.
    The man he’s belittling, Didn’t Serve In The Military, BUT….says as long as I’m President no one will take your RIGHT TO BARE ARMS.
    Totalitarians.Everyone of them.
    Little Stalin’s in training.

  22. Just because Bernie supports similar ideas doesn’t mean that Pete can’t support them too! Bernie doesn’t have a monopoly on common sense!

  23. Emily Goldman is a campaign organizer for Pete Buttigieg. Except she's suddenly shifting over to be a "Voter protection director" for the Nevada primary. This is a massive conflict of interest, and she must not be allowed to participate in any official activities with the Nevada Democratic Party.

    #PeteTheCheat

  24. i cant help but think of this newsanchor. You go mayor pete. "He became president…butt..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1Y6PchDYfw

  25. Someone asked me ‘Sir, did you know Bernie Sanders?, No but Bernie knew me, he knew me.

    -Ami

    Someone also asked me, "Sir did you know Pete? No, actually I don't want too. I don't like platitudes.
    -FDR

  26. Just like trump supporters, Bernie supporters get upset anytime you praise any other candidate for literally anything.

  27. He literally stole Or rather co-opted Bernie’s message about the people and going to the districts to rally the people. Media trashed Bernie for saying this and for some reason Pete just said the same thing and no one flinches. Not to mention Bernie has a much more passionate and vast coalition of people in every district and state in the country. More than 3 times that of Pete. This is not the first time Pete has changed his message to the Bernie message despite everything he’s proposed being the opposite of what he says. This isn’t the first time he’s lied either. He’s a cheat. A faker. Playing a character. You can tell he studied cadence and tone and how to speak publicly. Hes a Harvard and Oxford guy. He’s a Rhodes scholar right? He says the right words but a peak at his record and his past words and actions quickly reveal that he’s not a genuine guy. His actions and strategy are opposite of what he’s saying. I can’t believe he’s taking Bernie’s ideas as his own.

    I wish the media (including you Colbert) would actually make him give a real answer instead of platitudes and ideas he took from the most popular politician on the country Bernie Sanders. Tho you at least asked him how he’ll get it done. Truth is it won’t be hard for Pete anyway, because the plans he actually put forth are nothing like the things he’s claiming to support. They’re GOP and establishment style cash grabs.

    please please don’t vote for Pete people. Look more closely at his record. And he won’t be able to beat trump anyway. The conservatives would be out in mass against a homosexual man for president. And he’s a millennial, which isn’t what a lot of voters think the president should be. He has no experience and Even during his mayoral reelection he took donor money and then did exactly what they wanted him to do. They were recorded saying they will get Pete to fire the first African American police chief and get all the ni****rs out of the force etc. and guess what, Pete fired him without cause, which eventually turned into a demotion… pete did the donors bidding. Not to mention that he hid the evidence (audio recordings) of the discrimination in the police department directed against the chief and others . If he can’t be uncorrupted in a mayor term how in the hell is this dude going to be President? And how’s he gonna best Trump and his mass of supporters?

  28. Mayor cheat says things that sound good but they’re just empty words. He doesn’t explain how he just says what we all already know. The only thing he said that was good was that he would hold rallies in republican senators backyards, but bernie was the first to say that, bernie said he would even go to a democrats backyard that votes with trump like 90% of the time(joe munchkin) the only other thing he said that was good was about the war power, and that congress should have a vote on it again in three years, which would be better if it were yearly but it’s better than nothing.

  29. Q: How do you achieve what you are promising now?

    A: Fly a plane into a member of the Congress or the Senate’s backyard and talk to them.

  30. Media and certain candidates are repeating the same mistake they made that resulted in trump last election, by this time in the race, if Yang suspended his campaign, Tulsi and Steyer should too. This election is too important to waste votes on candidates who have not placed in top five. They only hurt the chance of beating trump. We don't want any candidate to buy the nomination, we don't need a career politician who feels entitled based on decases in Washington, their gender, or their wealth, because we have a new generation candidate, for the new era, who is not only young and healthy, works harder bc he has no name recognition, campaigns on inclusion and belonging, has bold, doable policies, and an amazing Douglas Plan, who has a presidential demeanor, and happens to be a Veteran. I believe America would be respectful of our next President as a Veteran! What's not to love about Pete?

  31. The "mayor of South Bend isn't an fundraising powerhouse"?! He is when he's backed by a bunch of billionaire twits, not to mention being an intelligence agency darling. Oligarchy, ain't it grand.

  32. youtube comments aren't real life. talk to friends and those you know about pete, you'll never know what kind of conversation it'll start!

  33. …. if ole Sanders is our Dem candidate , my Family and I will Stay Home this Election Day ! NEVER SOCIALISM in my America !

  34. The next coached, robotic candidate for POTUS, Mayor Pete. He has a rehearsed, stiff, put on, facade. Does anyone really feel comfortable relating to him? I am concerned if he gets the 'brass ring' nomination he's going to break down and cry. I understand the DNC is at it again in Denver with early voting. They are up to their 'eyeballs' in SDI-State Delegate Index. They have everyone filling out long forms to find out who is the most popular. Then you know what happens. They take from the urban voters and give to the rural voters if the rural voters CHOOSE THE DNC candidate. Watch Buttigieg come out ahead. He owns the rights to the app used for voting in Iowa. Remember the mess in Iowa.

  35. Moderates, and Established Democrats like Pete still B.S. the public. (Secular Talk, https://youtu.be/JvUroq-ayjM ). Deep state controlling them, the Republicans and some at the DNC party. They, the Deep State will never let them do anything for the public.

  36. Nothing against him and the person he is saying it too is vastly more appropriate, but his explanation was the same one that piece of crap Rubio gave that teenager in that forum with all the teenagers and parents after the Stoneman Douglas attack.

  37. I have loved Pete Buttigieg since the first day I heard about him a little over a year ago. That man is the future of this country. Anyone simple minded enough to let his sexuality sway their vote, probably doesn’t need to be voting anyway.

  38. Here's a write-in vote in support of Stephen's sportitude of the navy suit and plum tie — it's a radically fetching look. Again!

  39. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxzqL3mxWGA Pete Buttigieg is a corrupt promoter of immoral wars, who cannot even win his own State, 2-23-20
