Pete Buttigieg Triggers Libs By Taking Advice From Mark Zuckerberg

October 21, 2019

Mayor Pete "Boat Shoes" Buttigieg, aka "Mayor Beast," wasn't shy about attacking media darling Elizabeth Warren during last week's Democratic primary debate. Now, the establishment-backed candidate is triggering libs all over again following reports that he "quietly" received staffing recommendations from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Bloomberg reports:

Facebook Inc. chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg has privately recommended several potential hires to Pete Buttigieg's presidential campaign, a rare example of direct political involvement from one of tech's most powerful executives.

Earlier this year, Zuckerberg sent multiple emails to Mike Schmuhl, Buttigieg’s campaign manager, with names of individuals that he might consider hiring, campaign spokesman Chris Meagher confirmed. Priscilla Chan, Zuckerberg's wife, also sent multiple emails to Schmuhl with staff recommendations. Ultimately, two of the people recommended were hired.

The emails between Zuckerberg and Buttigieg have come to light as Zuckerberg faces unrelenting attacks from politicians from both parties over such issues as misinformation, privacy, election meddling and bias. Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify Wednesday before the House Financial Services Committee on Facebook’s impact on the financial services and housing sectors.

The report prompted a deluge of grievances from triggered libs on social-media websites, including Twitter.

At one point, Obama bro Tommy Vietor came to Buttigieg's defense, only to be shouted down by Judd Legum, a perpetually aggrieved lib.

Another Obama bro, former senior adviser David Axelrod, chimed in to remind everyone that cavorting with billionaire tech barons was "COOL" when Obama did it.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren continued to attack Zuckerberg on the campaign trail in Iowa. Her pledge to "break up" big tech firms such as Facebook has been a central component of her campaign thus far, despite her relatively poor command of basic tech-related terms such as "selfie."

Warren, the presumed Democratic frontrunner until Hillary Clinton formally announces her candidacy, has accused Facebook of "actively helping Trump spread lies and misinformation."
