Democrat presidential primary contender Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Sunday called out both parties and President Donald Trump for having a “scrambled” ideology that’s turned Washington into a “mesmerizing horror show.”
In an interview on NBC News’ “Meet The Press," the South Bend, Ind., mayor touted his qualifications for the nation’s highest office as one about “quality as well as quantity in experience. I think you can also see pretty clearly that I’m about as different from this president as it gets.”
“There’s a lot more to this than an ideological analysis especially with the ideology in our country so scrambled,” he said. “Having a president who doesn’t even have an ideology, just a style undertaking a hostile takeover of the Republican Party, while the Democratic Party has only been able to explain its ideological commitments by comparing itself to the Republicans.”
Buttigieg said he want to “change the channel” in Washington.
“You have this moment, probably the only moment in American history, where it just might make sense for somebody my age, coming from experience in the industrial Midwest, non-federal, different background, bringing something that will actually help Americans envision the world as it'll be in 2054, the year that I will reach the current age of the current president, and just change the channel from this mesmerizing horror show that’s going on in Washington right now.”
