Full panel

Whoopi v Meghan again, Impeachapalooza second clip

Pete Buttigieg

More clips and summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]

[Did he do something different to his hair?] Plays clip. Talks about Iowa and momentum and crossing demographics. Talks about how much has changed in the year since he was on the show in 2019. Sunny revisits if America is ready for a gay Potus. She doesn’t think it’s a big deal. Plays clip of precinct voter who didn’t know until that moment, took her vote back. Despite liking his message, she rescinded because he was gay. PB gives his answer, reaction. Joy wonders how he will overcome the religious bigotry. PB talks about his faith and how he plans to address that.

Talks Romney vote in comparison. MP thinks it says a lot about Romney that he did it, and what it says about him vs his party. It signals there is another way. MP then talks about his electability and experience. Drags T45 a bit. Says every time a Dem candidate has won in last 50 years, the candidate was new in national politics and hadn’t run for Potus before. [Pretty out of context, but seems directed @ Sanders and Biden, re/multiple Potus campaigns. Otherewise, Obama was a Senator. Clinton was a multi-term Governor and head of then-DLC. Carter was a Governor. Even Clinton2 was a Senator and SOS, re/she won popular vote.]

Sunny moves on to next races. PB is positioning it as voting for the revolution vs the establishment. Talks economy, which shouldn’t be measured by stock market. Talks more about differences between him and Sanders, and is frightened by the polarity in our country. Explains more about his policy approaches. Wants to rid us of Tr/mp and Tr/mpisms. MP talks about his position on pro-choice, and that people’s interpretation of when life begins will be different but no one should be subjected to another person’s interpretation. Doesn’t believe it should be up to the government, it should be between a woman and a doctor. They argue over details and timing and late term abortions. He trusts the woman’s decision both medically and morally. [Whatever people feel about PB, Meghan is rude].

Joy brings up Bloomberg, wasn’t in Iowa but still got a boost. PB says he’s not envious but believes candidates should have human contact and not just ads. Believes people will respond to his message and they have the best answers. Sunny brings up (lack of) black support. Polls around 2% nationally. Plus internal campaign issues with poc. PB addresses her points, emphasizes he wants to close the gender gaps in all areas, lists more specifics.

Joy says Pence likened Pelosi ripping up her copy of SOTU to ripping up the Constitution. PB says ripping up the Constitution is sending your lawyer to the well of the Senate and saying anything you do is ok and legal. Rapid fire round. What keeps him up at night: coffee and polarization of country. Favorite Republican: Richard (Dick) Lugar (Iowa Senator who passed away last year). Dinner guest dead or alive: Alexander of Macedon [aka Alexander the Great], Sally Ride (astronaut), [Bantu] Stephen Biko (South African civil rights activist). Oscar choice: hasn’t seen a lot of movies, liked Little Women. Bucket list: Antarctica, or North Pole. Party trick: pour a drink and flip it over his head without the liquid coming out.
