Democratic presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg took another dig at Cadet Bone Spurs for his draft dodging during the Vietnam War, and explained to yet another seemingly mystified Villager why no one should continue to pretend to be shocked about the fact that our , and used his position of privilege so that someone else could go over there and fight and potentially die in his place.
Host Martha Raddatz also asked Buttigieg about Trump's potential pardons for war criminals (after being told to do so by Fox's Pete Hegseth), and Mayor Pete didn't hold back his disgust for Trump on this Memorial Day weekend and what it means for those who serve in our military :
BUTTIGIEG: The idea that being sent to war turns you into a murderer is exactly the kind of thing that those of us who have served have been trying to beat back for more than a generation. For a president, especially a president who never served, to say he's going to come in and overrule that system of military justice undermines the very foundations, legal and moral, of this country. Frankly, his idea, that being sent to fight makes you automatically into some kind of war criminal is a slander against veterans that could only come from somebody who never served.
