“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough was quite impressed with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s performance in his Fox News town hall Sunday night, declaring that “I’ve seen the future of the Democratic Party and it’s Mayor Pete.”
He softened the dramatic flourish: “It may not be in 2020, perhaps it’s in 2024 and beyond, but this guy is going to play an important role in the mainstreaming of the Democratic Party for many years to come.”

The biggest moment from Buttigieg’s appearance was when he called Trump’s tweets “grotesque” and said that he ignores the President’s insults, triggering cheers and applause from the audience.
