Pete Buttigieg is evidently too proud to beg people to applaud.

In that regard he is not as humble as Jeb Bush.

He is much sneakier, however.

Evidently he has been caught adding applause where there was none.

The Hill has the story…

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg‘s campaign was mocked Friday for editing a clip from a CNN town hall that included inserting fake applause after a remark made by the 38-year-old presidential candidate.

“To me, that is not just a concern for our generation, it’s a concern that calls on us to build an alliance among generations to try to make sure that the future really is better than the past,” Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., said in answering a question from an audience member in New Hampshire.

In the live CNN event on Thursday night, Buttigieg’s answer did not compel the audience at Saint Anselm College to break into applause.

But in a clip shared by the campaign on social media, applause was added.

The audio edit was flagged by the Center for Democracy Action, a group that supports Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Buttigieg and Sanders, 78, just finished in a dead heat in Iowa, with both sides declaring victory in a contest marred by delays, errors and inconsistencies.



A Democrat using fakery to make himself look better?

No way.

Who does that?

Buttigieg doesn’t have the entire media working for him, so he had to do it himself.

He got caught.

So we now have an American communist calling out a homosexual.

These are seriously the top two 2020 options that Democrats have?

What’s wrong with the Indian they call Fauxcahontas?

Or that child molester they call Uncle Joe?

Democrats are such bigots.
