Every ‘View’ Host Agrees Buttigieg Handled Town Hall Poorly: ‘Do Your Job’ and ‘Then Run for President’

@TheView/Twitter

“The View” hosts collectively slammed Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg on Monday for his poor handling of recent issues with South Bend community, of which he is mayor.

Host Joy Behar took a shot at him first, saying he needed to “fix what’s going on in South Bend” before he focuses on national office.

“I have this feeling that these guys who are running, who are mayors and governors, should keep doing their jobs, until they can fix it … But when you’re a mayor or a governor, it’s almost like you’re the father or the mother of the family. And to leave South Bend now and run for president seems like an unfinished job.”

The host claimed that while she liked the candidate, he needed to learn how to run a city before he could run a country.

“Do your job first there, and then run for president,” Behar said.

Watch:

Sunny Hostin also went after the mayor, saying she has spoken to many in the community about the issues they have with the official.

“I went to law school in South Bend … he has had a problem with the African-American community in South Bend for quite some time,” said Hostin.

“I’ve visited a lot, I’ve spoken to a lot if the African-American community and they say that his housing program, which was supposed to be extraordinary and revolutionary, was to bulldoze vacant homes and most of those homes were in the African-American community … They were very upset with him, and he didn’t really address it.”

Whoopi Goldberg also took a dig at Buttigieg, saying that he was “more than a little green around the edges,” and Meghan McCain called his handling of the recent town hall “piss poor.”

As IJR Red reported, Buttigieg has received harsh criticism from both sides for the town hall, but it is uncertain how it will affect his presidential campaign.

Don’t those bias women on “the view” have anything better to talk about? They are so focused on politics and slipping in digs about our President, that, like most Dems, they’ve lost focus. Try doing your job without alienating 3/4 of the people.

Buttgig better prepare for another line of work because his political career will soon come to an inauspicious end. Of course, the Mayor of Munchkinland may be ready to retire by now; maybe Pete can get that spot somewhere over the rainbow.

When I see this Mayor Pete guy I think of a survey that I saw a few years back.People were asked how they felt about homosexual candidates, most people said that they do not care until they are told and given a chance to think about how they have sex,than people were changing their minds.I also thought that this Pete guy is or had been in the military if so you would think that he knew about PDA with his husband I personally caught hell for holding hands with my wife and another time I had a hickey that I… Read more »

What Presidential campaign? He’s a small man in spirit and stature. He’s quick with the quip but lacking in compassion. Who told this guy he was Presidential material?
