The five co-hosts of View were in total panic on Election Day morning, but Pete Buttigieg did his best to make them feel better.
“I feel good!” former Democratic presidential candidate and current campaign substitute Biden told them. “Things are definitely going in the right direction. But, like everyone else, I am also very careful about all of this. We have learned our lesson about never being comfortable with results until they are finished.
Buttigieg warned viewers not to think that “something bad” is going on if we don’t have the full results on election night. “It means people do their jobs with integrity and make sure every vote is counted,” he added. “I believe if everyone votes and every vote is counted, our team will win.”
And he also made it clear that President Trump “did not have the power” to stop the vote count. “He can declare whatever he wants, but it is a democratic country and we are counting the votes,” Buttigieg said. “I’m upset that they have this strategy where they go to court in certain states to try to stop some of these votes. By the way, we are talking about military voters sending votes by mail. We are talking about all kinds of legitimate and able-bodied voters. And that’s a strategy you adopt if you think you will win. So it really is a sign of desperation.
Buttigieg’s unique ability to speak clearly on these issues – and even reach out to some Republican and Independent voters – has been on full display in recent weeks, as he has become something of a Democratic montage on Fox News.
“You’ve been there quite often recently, including last night,” View’s Ana Navarro noted. “And you never lose your cool and the facts. The last time I was this calm was in 2014. Why do you continue there and how do you remain so unfazed? “
“So here’s how I think about it,” Buttigieg replied. “You know, most Fox News viewers disagree with me politically and the people who control the content on this network, in my opinion, are not always fair.”
“But I know that too,” he continued. “I can’t blame someone for not supporting my point if they’ve literally never heard it. It’s my job to make this point of view known to viewers who are listening in good faith. One of the “good things that came out of our troubled political moment,” Buttigieg said is that Republicans have shown a willingness to reject Trump and embrace Biden.
“We have to build common ground here,” he added. “For me, finding common ground doesn’t mean diluting your values. It means taking others seriously and talking about why you care so much.
