>>Stephen: WE’RE BACK HERE,
WE’RE BACK, EVERYBODY, WITH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE PETE
BUTTIGIEG, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WINE CAVE, OKAY. YOU GOT A LOT OF CRITICISM. NO, WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THE
WINE CAVE.>>OKAY.>>Stephen: YOU TOOK SOME
CRITICISM FOR HAVING A FUNDRAISER IN A WINE CAVE IN
CALIFORNIA. AND RAISED A TON OF MONEY AND
HAD, YOU KNOW, BOTTLES OF WINE WORTH MULTIPLE HUNDREDS OF
DOLLARS. SEEMED VERY ELITE TO PEOPLE. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR HAVING
THAT DINNER BECAUSE I MADE JOKES ABOUT YOU DOING THAT.>>DID YOU.>>Stephen: AND THE WINE CAVE
SENT ME SOME VERY GOOD WINE.>>REALLY?>>Stephen: YES. (LAUGHTER)
SO THANK YOU, THANK YOU WINE CAVE, I DON’T KNOW WHO TO THANK
BUT THANK YOU.>>THERE IS SOME REALLY GOOD
CHEESE IN THE GREEN ROOM RIGHT NOW.>>Stephen: A CHEESE CAVE.>>I APPRECIATE THE CHEESE.>>Stephen: DO YOU UNDER STAND
WHY PEOPLE MIGHT CRIT SOIZ THAT, BECAUSE THERE IS, ESPECIALLY
THIS YEAR THERE IS A SENSE THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE BEHOLDEN TO
SPECIAL INTERESTS, A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY IN ORDER TO INFLUENCE
CANDIDATES. WE NEED A GRASS ROOTS COALITION
OF PEOPLE AND THAT TURNS SOME PEOPLE OFF.>>I UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION. AND I’M NOT A FAN OF THE
CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM WE HAVE TODAY. I’M ALSO A FAN OF BEATING DONALD
TRUMP. AND WHAT WE’VE GOT TO DO RIGHT
NOW, FIRST OF ALL MAYOR OF SOUTH BEND, INDIANA, IS NOT EXACTLY AN
ESTABLISHMENT FUNDRAISING POWERHOUSE, SO I WOULDN’T BE
HERE IF WE HADN’T GOTTEN HUNDREDS MUCH THOUSANDS OF
PEOPLE TO GO TO– FOR MEAK.COM, CHIP IN A FEW BUCKS AND BUILD
THIS CAMPAIGN. IF SOMEBODY CAN GIVE UP TO THE
LEGAL LIMIT WHICH IS $2,800 AND THEY ARE WILLING TO DO THAT TO
SUPPORT MY VISION FOR MOVING THIS COUNTRY FORWARD, THEN I
REALLY THINK THEY SHOULD HELP GET THIS DONE AND I WILL MAKE
EXACTLY ONE PROMISE TO ANYBODY, WHETHER THEY ARE GIVING THREE
BUCKS ONLINE OR THE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE BY LAW. THE PROMISE IS I’M GOING TO TAKE
THAT CONTRIBUTION, AND I’M GOING TO USE IT TO BUILD A CAMPAIGN
THAT IS GOING TO DEFEAT DONALD TRUMP SO WE CAN ACTUALLY GET THE
REFORMS THIS COUNTRY NEED. (APPLAUSE).>>Stephen: I HOPE YOU’RE
RIGHT, I HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT. WAS IT A NICE WINE CAVE? WAS IT NICE DOWN THERE?>>I HAVE NOT BEEN– I DON’T
HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE.>>Stephen: THERE AREN’T A LOT
OF WINE CAVES IN SOUTH BEND, INDIANA.>>WE DO HAVE A CHEESE CAVE IN
SOUTH BEND, INDIANA.>>Stephen: GOOD, AMERICAN
CHEESE?>>PROBABLY, BUT YEAH, WE HAVE A
REGULAR BASEMENT AT HOME, I THINK THERE IS SOME WINE DOWN
THERE.>>Stephen: NOW LET’S SAY YOU
WIN, OKAY. LET’S TALK ABOUT CHANGING
WASHINGTON OR ADDING A PROGRESSIVE AGENDA TO OUR
GOVERNMENT. YOU SAW PROGRESS IN THE
GOVERNMENT CANNOT DEPEND OS ON THE GOOD FAITH OF THE GOP. SO IF YOU ARE PRESIDENT, HOW DO
YOU ACHIEVE WHAT YOU ARE PROMISING NOW.>>SO HERE IS WHAT WE HAVE GOING
FOR US. EVEN, EVEN MORE THAN WHAT WAS
AVAILABLE TO PRESIDENT OBAMA A DECADE AGO, THERE IS A POWERFUL
AMERICAN MAJORITY THAT WANTS TO SEE THESE CHANGES HAPPEN. THAT WANTS TO SEE HIGHER WAGES,
THAT THINKS IT IS RIDICULOUS THAT A CORPORATION LIKE AMAZON
OR CHEVRON PAY ZERO ON TAXES IN BILLIONS OF PROFITS. EVEN ON HEALTH CARE. MAKING SURE THAT EVERY AMERICAN
IS INSURED, EVEN IN AREAS WHERE MY PARTY HAS BEEN ON THE DEFENSE
IN THE PAST, IMGRAILINGS REFORM, DOING SOMETHING ABOUT GUN
VIOLENCE. CLIMATE, EVERY ONE OF THESE
HOOS, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, EVEN IN CONSERVATIVE STATES WANT
SOMETHING DONE. SO IF YOU CAN’T HAVE A GOOD
FAITH CONVERSATION AND THERE IS NOT A LOT OF GOOD FAITH
ESPECIALLY IN THE SENATE GOP RIGHT NOW, THEN I THINK WHAT YOU
HAVE TO DO IS GO DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE WHO EXPECT THIS OF THEIR
LEADERS EVEN IN MORE CONSERVATIVE DISTRICTS OR
STATES, TO ME, THAT IS THE BEST USE OF THE BIG AIRPLANE THAT
COMES WITH THE OVAL OFFICE. THE PRESIDENT USES MOSTLY FOR
THE PURPOSE OF TRAVELING BETWEEN GOLF COURSES WITH HIS NAME ON IT
I DON’T EVEN GOLF. AND MY IDEA OF THE BEST USE OF
THAT AIRPLANE IS TO FLY IT RIGHT INTO THE BACKYARD OF A MEMBER OF
CONGRESS OR THE SENATE WHO IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF THESE
IDEAS, DEFYING NOT ONLY MY WHITE HOUSE BUT THEIR OWN VOTERS. AND REMIND THEM OF THE DAYLIGHT
BETWEEN THEM AND THEIR OWN REPRESENTATIVES, AND SEE IF
THAT, THAT SIMPLE POLITICAL POWER FINALLY HAS THE EFFECT OF
REUNITING SOME OF THESE SENATORS WITH THEIR CONSCIENCE. AND IF IT DOESN’T, THEN MAKING
SURE WE DO OUR PART TO GET A NEW SENATOR.>>Stephen: THE PRESIDENCY IS
L VESTED WITH ENORMOUS POWER RIGHT NOW. IF YOU BECAME PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES ARE THERE ANY POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY THAT
YOU WOULD SURRENDER? BECAUSE IT IS A SNOWBALL OF
POWER THAT JUST KEEPS GETTING BIGGER IN THE PRESIDENCY. AND WE JUST SAW THE WORST ABUSE
OF IT YESTERDAY BY NOT HOLDING THE PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE FOR
TRYING TO MESS WITH OUR ELECTIONS. WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP.>>I WILL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE
THAT IS AS IMPORTANT TO ME AS SOMEBODY WHO SERVED OVERSEAS, IF
I AM EVER COMPELLED TO USE FORCE AND GO TO CONGRESS FOR AN
AUTHORIZEATION TO DO IT, I WILL MAKE SURE IT INCLUDES A
THREE-REAR SUNSET, EXPIRATION DATE. SO THAT IF THERE EVER DID NEED
TO BE A RENEWAL, IF I OR ANOTHER PRESIDENT REALLY THOUGHT THAT
WAS NECESSARY, YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK TO CONGRESS AND HAVE
THAT CONVERSATION. BECAUSE ALSO YOU KNOW, CONGRESS
HAS BEEN I THINK ALL TOO HAPPY TO LEAVE SOME OF ITS WAR POWERS
TO THE SIDE BECAUSE IT IS JUST MESSY, DIFFER AND COMPLICATED.>>Stephen: AT THE DON’T WANT
TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A DECISION THEY MAKE.>>BUT IF PEOPLE CAN FIND A
COURAGE TO SERVE, THEY OUGHT TO BE HAVE THE COURAGE ON WHETHER
TO SEND THEM THERE OR KEEP THEM THERE. I WILL CONSTRAIN MYSELF AS
PRESIDENT BY MAKING SURE THAT VOTE HAPPENS IF A CONFLICT GOES
ON MORE THAN THREE YEARS.>>Stephen: MR. MAYOR, THANK
YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG, EVERYBODY. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH
MR. PATTON OSWALT

  1. Pete Buttigieg: A Majority Of Americans Want Higher Wages And Healthcare

    And a majority also voted against you in Iowa for Bernie, but that didn't stop you from overlooking them and declaring victory anyways before any results came in. Why should anyone believe that you'll care for what the majority want this time, instead of the 40 billionaires funding your campaign?

  2. This guy is fake, he's had more than 40 billionaires help fund his campaign. He's not on the people's side, but in the pockets of the mega rich. Media don't want Bernie to win, CBS included. What a shame, Steven.

  3. A majority of Americans want a sense of resource security, a path forward and the freedom to make their own choices Peter Paul Montgomery Buttigieg.

  4. Pete is a cheat! I hope he fizzles out soon. #whiteObama.. none of those policies are yours Pete! #Bernie 2020 I love you Colbert but this interview with Pete nauseates me. That shadow app finished me! Iowa was Bernies. Anyway at least you brought up the corrupt fund raising in the wine caves.. put Bernie on😜

  5. Glad Stephen asked about surrendering some presidential powers. That is a question that I would like to get an answer from on all of the candidates. Was disappointed with Pete's answer because even if he behaves like that in regards to war powers he can't make his successors do that. Plus quite frankly the leaders in congress can just avoid holding the vote on war powers. They would especially do this if the leaders knew the result would not be one they would like. That's why McConnell doesn't hold votes because he knows that some of the laws could peal off enough moderate Republicans to give them a majority.

  6. There is nothing wrong with graasroots support, but why should all corporations and their administrators be disrespected? Most of them worked diligently to invent, patent, manufacture, sell and hire competent workers who need jobs and careers. Those folks are Americans, too. How can you place Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Jeff Bezos in the same basket? For example, Gates and Buffet feel that large corporations should be fairly taxed; Bezos's Amazon barely pays any taxes at all. Many corporate entities treat their employees fairly; others run roughshod over their employees in the pursuit of higher profits. These are just a few examples of the disparity in corporation ethics. Think about it.

  7. Joking about Former Mayor Rat holding a fundraiser attended by millionaires and billionaires isn’t something to joke about. This is just another example of the elitists fucks laughing at poor people wanting health care.

  8. The reason why we Swear-in to the Bible, Quran (Koran), Torah (all of these books are Living Testament of God)…..as a representation of the "3rd Person"….because we need someone (God-Creator) higher than us (human) who could SEE while others could not (even Angels nor Devils could not)……….God could SEE your deeds/action even you hide, SEE your Mind (way of thinking), See your Heart (way of Love), and SEE your Soul (what kind of Conscience do you have) and could Judge Fairly and most specially could Destroy both Body and Soul (Spirit)……….Can the "Constitution Book" do that to a Person Swearing-in?………..To God be the Glory and Power…..Amen

  9. I've heard people say things about Pete like he's a pseudo-Republican, he's a centrist, not a progressive, etc, but in what real ways do his big picture policy positions differ from the current Democratic platform? He's not on the extreme left on healthcare, but his plan is still far left of center, and M4A isn't even the most popular plan among Democratic constituents.

  10. Pete is a complete fricken FRAUD!!! He's been trying to copy Andrew Yang's talking points but can't explain them because they are NOT his!! He's the corrupt DNC's new Pony Boy because their first pick was dementia Biden and that failed just like their doing with this lying Pete!! Also the #CNNHacks and #MSNBChacks are working with the #DNCHacks to push that fraudulent Mayo Pete!!! 😬😬😬😬

  11. "I'm not a fan of the campaign finance system we have today."
    But you have no problem taking its money. Conversely, Bernie Sanders is living proof that if your POLICIES are popular, you don't need that corrupt funding.
    Pete isn't going to change a fucking thing.

  12. If a billionaire likes Pete and wants to donate 2800 dollars to him which is no money to him/her. There is no need to see them in a wine-cave, is there? It seems to me he is not being honest.

  13. Just addressing all the fraud comments – Please look at the logical facts, If Bernie wins somehow he’ll still need the senate to pass his plans DNC or GOP controlled you won’t see it amount to much – even if Pete’s a DNC puppet – he’s still clearly better to handle trump in the debate and move things through the senate – you want change then vote for what will get you that Bernie is great but he won’t be able to get things done like you think. This is just the way of things so play the game a little and you’ll get what you want.

  14. So flitting about to rallies to “convince Republicans” and if it doesn’t work (it won’t) he’ll campaign for the next election.
    In other words he has zero plan. An empty vessel spouting platitudes and nonsense management speak – how does anyone with a brain get conned by this guy?

  15. WE do not want another Hilary Clinton. We want a BERNIE! Bernie deserves to be president… he has been fighting the good fight since he was TWENTY years old.

  16. Pretty sure Trump is doing a fine job raising wages due to more jobs making workers more valuable, and getting Phama to lower drug pricing, than anything this gloryhole attendee and mayor of shitsville is going to come up with. Democrats are a joke, and they've continually proven they have no respect for free speech, a right to self defense, judgement by merit, our borders, or Americans. Trump 2020!

  17. you guys are idiots, higher wages in reality mean lower standard of life for lower and mid-lower americans. Healthcare What a frickin scam. so the great Obama-care made me choose spend $644 a month for the cheapest I could get with a $5000 deductible or I could pay my rent!!!!! I know spun the right way it sounds great for a lot of low life, mochers of society, that all want Gov Santa Claus, the dems know full well they will get kick backs in the end from their rich socialist elites. you people making comments about Trump are dumb as a stump.

  18. Horrible humans on this thread…the guy is brilliant, articulate and wildly capable…you Bernie Bots need to grow up, shut up and go away

  19. This clown, Wall Street Pete sheesh. His fake AF healthcare ‘all who want it’ bullshit doesn’t give universal healthcare esp not when he takes money from big Pharma, health insurers, lobbyists. He never rly talks about ANYTHING just gives empty platitudes. Gems like “we cannot solve the problems before us by looking back”…wtf

  20. Platitude Pete will do what his 40 billionaire donors want him to do, surprisingly raising wages and universal healthcare is not one of the things that the billionaires want him to do. Tax cuts and screwing the American people are their top priority.

  21. south bend people are saying pete tolerated racism in his police force, did not correct them, let it get out of hand. he is not a leader. he could not convince the police that racism was unacceptable. he allowed it.

  22. If he does not agree w u$a's campaign norms, then don't follow them, as Sanders' eg shows. We will loose to another centrist.
    It’s Our Revolution. History is what's happening NOW!

  23. And Sneaky Pete ain't gonna do anything about it.
    Thanks Stephen for this smooth handjob of an Interview with a Canditate,
    who invested in the Iowa App and prematurely declared himself the winner.

    Great Job keep up with the Trump Impression. #McResistance

  24. This guy said in March that he was fully behind M4A. He also said he was for decriminalizing border crossings. Then he saw that he was stagnant in the polls and he decided to pivot to the center and started saying the exact opposite to what he was saying before. Don't elect this fraud.

  25. Pete's campaign is funded mostly by the wealthy powerful elite, don't be a sucker and fall for this guys bs, he doesn't represent us, vote for Bernie.

  26. Here's what he's all about for his generation:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rz4v6SvwQsY&list=PLvS19ktD5fHiXzRg_N-UPT7eYcVyTrp9C&index=4

  27. Hey guys we are a republic not a democracy. Check out the pledge of allegiance. It's always been a republic and never a pure democracy.

  28. Pete supports white supremacist in his policen force and fires black employees on the command of the WS cops he loves. he's a selfish monster with less politic-ing than trump now. Wall street pete is a NO for me.

  29. Corporates' media tools quietly starting to push for their status quo candidate. Sad to See Colbert and Trevor Noah is doing whatever they have been told to do.

  30. Steve should get his old show back now that has all this mainstream access. He could really pin them down, like he used to….

  31. I swear people will look back years from now and be in disbelief that THIS fool got even close to being president. Good riddance

  32. It always amazes me when people ignore that Bernie Sanders has been invited more often on Colbert's show than anyone else save John Oliver (who sometimes fills in when a scheduled guest can't make it). Colbert is obviously a Bernie supporter. That does not mean he cannot be nice around the other candidates.

  33. As a moderate, the toxic behavior of Sanders supporters has really turned me off. If Buttigieg does not get the nomination, I'll be voting Trump.

  34. This jerk spews nothing but BS. All words that are meaningless! He latches onto Bernies talking points and uses them for his totally lying crap. Unreal.

  35. Newsflash to Pete: President Trumps economy is giving Americans wage increases and health care benefits. Pete another out of touch swamp creature.

  36. Pete is NOT an outsider new voice. He is part of DNC machine, he ran for DNC chair but LOST. He ran for state and LOST. Like Trump he built his local city success by discriminating against poor, black and brown people. Like Trump he's in it for himself and not for us.

  37. Everyone calling him Mayor Cheat……stop stooping to Trump's level. Either explain your case or opinion but if you accept acting like a child, the GOP has won by lowing your standards.

  38. Let me lay it out for you.
    This ass wipe wants to exploit the system.
    Butti-boy joined the military and swore an oath to protect AND uphold the Constitution of the United States.
    Yet!! Yet!! He wants to strip us of our 2nd Amendment Rights. By exploiting the office of the president if elected.
    The man he’s belittling, Didn’t Serve In The Military, BUT….says as long as I’m President no one will take your RIGHT TO BARE ARMS.
    Totalitarians.Everyone of them.
    Little Stalin’s in training.

  39. Just because Bernie supports similar ideas doesn’t mean that Pete can’t support them too! Bernie doesn’t have a monopoly on common sense!
