The co-chairs of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) presidential campaign ripped South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Sunday evening for comparing Sanders’s supporters to those who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016.

Buttigieg recently said in New Hampshire that Sanders’s supporters, like Trump’s, have a “sense of anger and disaffection” that makes them “more likelty to want to vote to blow up the system.”

Sense - Anger - Disaffection - Numbers - Unemployment

“I think the sense of anger and disaffection that comes from seeing that the numbers are fine, like unemployment’s low, like all that, like you said GDP is growing and yet a lot of neighborhoods and families are living like this recovery never even happened. They’re stuck,” Buttigieg reportedly said. “It just kind of turns you against the system in general and then you’re more likely to want to vote to blow up the system, which could lead you to somebody like Bernie and it could lead you to somebody like Trump. That’s how we got where we are.”

Nina Turner and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), national co-chairs of Sanders’s presidential campaign, criticized Buttigieg’s comparison while also previewing what could be potential attacks against Buttigieg if “Mayor Pete” continues to rise in the polls.

Bernie - Sanders - Supporters - Trump - Fans

“Bernie Sanders’ supporters are not the same as Trump fans — Sen. @BernieSanders supporters are Democratic & Independent voters, many of whom are people of color,” Turner tweeted, not-so-subtly comparing the “diverse” Sanders supporters to the wealthy white “wine-track” liberals who have been behind the so-called “Buttigieg boomlet.”

Khanna claimed it is “intellectually dishonest to compare Bernie to Trump” while also jabbing Buttigieg’s stance against free college for all and the mayor’s “credentialed elitism.”

“Come on @PeteButtigieg. It is intellectually dishonest to compare Bernie to Trump. Bernie is for giving people healthcare, education, childcare, & more pay. He wants to blow up credentialed elitism — those who...
