'Slayer Pete': Buttigieg emerges as Biden's unlikely Fox News fighter


Former presidential contender receives rave reviews as rapier-tongued opponent of Trump’s cable-TV apologists

At home, he is the unassuming former mayor of a small town in Indiana, where he lives happily with his husband, a junior high school teacher, and their two lazy dogs.

But on cable TV, where he has emerged in the homestretch of the presidential campaign as a likable and lethal surrogate for Democrat Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg is something else: “Slayer Pete”.

Conferred on Buttigieg by the Los Angeles Times columnist Mary McNamara, the nickname captures the efficacy with which Buttigieg has turned his rhetorical chops to the task of obliterating apologists for Donald Trump.

Buttigieg’s biggest scores have come on Fox News, an arena not many Democrats deign to enter, unwilling or unable to argue against an alternative reality where Covid-19 is a hoax, Hillary Clinton is public enemy No 1 and Trump is infallible.

1. Pete is awesome.

They aren’t expecting that at all on Fox.

2. Hmmm

He is using his white male privilege for the greater good. He can get away with it. Well done Pete. He is going to be an asset to the Biden cabinet.
