Things We Saw Today: Pete Buttigieg Is Getting Dragged Over a Terrible Bumper-Sticker Platitude of a Meme

Pete Buttigieg looks very excited at an Iowa event.

I imagine Pete Buttigieg is not having the best couple of days. First he declared victory in the Iowa caucus with no way to back that up. Then he had to listen to Meghan McCain spout anti-abortion propaganda to his face. Oh, he also got called out for adding audience applause to a town hall clip.

He’s also getting fully dragged on Twitter for this absolute nonsense platitude that someone on his campaign thought was poignant enough to memeify.

Do yourself a favor and don’t think about what those words actually mean for too long. Your brain is likely to turn to mush if you do.
