Pete Buttigieg has a roughly 0% chance of winning the Democrat nomination for president – and that might be generous.
However, he’s doing everything possible to make it known to the uninformed that he dislikes his country – which should make him a solid candidate!

Check out the moves Pete made in favor of illegal aliens.
It’s a doozy.
South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg reportedly helped create an alert system that would notify families if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided his residents’ homes or businesses.
The “phone tree,” according to The Daily Beast on Wednesday, was one of several actions Buttigieg took to protect illegal immigrants in his town. Phone trees consist of an automated calling system that helps spread messages quickly and efficiently.
Those would presumably help alert immigrants to the type of surprise raids that resulted in nearly 700 arrests in Mississippi.
His approach to immigration came under legal scrutiny when Judicial Watch, a right-leaning organization, sued the city over a “Community Resident Card” program that Buttigieg reportedly developed with the help of La Casa, a left-wing, pro-immigration group.
Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg took a jab at President Trump on Monday while delivering a speech in South Carolina, saying America’s past “was never as great as advertised.”
“So many of the solutions, I believe, are gonna come from our communities. Communities like the one where I grew up, which is an industrial mid-western city,” the former South Bend, Indiana mayor stated. “That is exactly the kind of place that our current president targeted with a message saying that we could find greatness by just stopping the clock and turning it back.”
“That past that he is promising to return us to was never as great as advertised, especially for marginalized Americans… and there’s no going back anyway.”

The 37-year-old mayor has yet to snag a single in-state endorsement in Iowa, and while his campaign has 57 staffers on the ground, it expanded to that number only recently. It’s a sharp contrast to other top Democratic candidates, who made investments in Iowa last winter to try to identify supporters and build a foundation for 2020, knowing the results here will shape the rest of the fight for the Democratic nomination.
But Buttigieg — who swung through Iowa this week for a series of packed town halls, meet-and-greets and impromptu conversations at the state fair — hopes his strategy, which he says was partly borne out of modern necessity, has given him the resources to run an accelerated Iowa campaign ahead of next year’s vote.
“You’ve had to tell a national story quicker,” said Buttigieg, who caught fire advertising himself on TV and with donors as an unconventional choice: a gay, millennial mayor who served in Afghanistan, earned a Harvard degree and won a Rhodes scholarship. “You couldn’t just sneak up on people by showing up in an early state, and then explode on to the scene later.”
