Democrat presidential hopeful, South Bend, Indian Mayor, Pete Buttigieg, met with race-hustler Al Sharpton for his obligatory trip to Harlem, where like so many Democrats before him, he pandered for Sharpton’s endorsement. It’s almost as though Democrats running for political office think the only thing they need to do is eat some fried chicken with the tax-evading, shakedown artist, and voila, without having to lift a finger to help the black community, they’ll lock down the lion’s share of black votes. It’s hard to forget Hillary’s trip to the black radio talk show, The Breakfast Club, where Hillary told the hosts the only thing she never leaves home without, it a bottle of hot sauce.
“It’s not rude to eat with my hands is it?” – @PeteButtigieg says as he grinds through a piece of fried chicken.

Sharpton showed Buttigieg a photo of Sylvia, who the restaurant is named after. Sharpton explains that Sylvia’s granddaughter is about to wait on their table. When Buttigieg asks for the name of Sylvia’s granddaughter, Sharpton tells him, “Uh, it’s a funny name. I can’t think of it.”
While throngs of photographers pressed up against the window, Buttigieg and Sharpton pretended to have a casual conversation, while the media zoomed in on the table, where the only thing visible to the viewers, was a bottle of—you guessed it—hot sauce!
As Buttigieg struggled to eat his chicken leg with a knife and fork, he paused and asked Sharpton, “It’s not rude to eat chicken with my hands, is it?” Sharpton quickly gave Buttigieg permission, explaining proper fried chicken etiquette, “No, no, you eat chicken with your hands,” Sharpton told him.

Being caught asking Al Sharpton for permission to use his hands to eat fried chicken, could be the least of Mayor Buttigieg’s problems today.
In a public statement on Medium today, 21-year-old Hunter Kelly of rural Michigan accused the Democrat candidate for President, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of sexual assault.
My name is Hunter Kelly. I am 21 years old. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. For the past three nights, I have not slept even a single hour. I have vomited eight times.
I was sexually assaulted by Mayor Pete Buttigieg. I didn’t know who he was back in February, only that he told me he was an important politician. When I started seeing him on television three weeks ago as a Presidential candidate, I thought about coming forward.
I am a gay man. I have been grappling with my identity for a number of years. I live, work, and attend college in rural Michigan. I know that by coming forward, I will make a hard life even harder. But I must do so — I must do so — for my country, for other gay men like me, and most importantly to stop a very bad man from becoming President of the United States.
I must confess that this is the toughest thing I have ever had to do. For two weeks now, I have been contemplating suicide. I see myself jumping from a building or a bridge. I know that years and years of counseling may lie in front of me.
Here is Kelly’s tweet with the link to Medium:
