During the closing moments of the democratic debate, Tulsi Gabbard launched an attack on Mayor Pete Buttigieg that could be best described as dishonest, if not a flat out lie. Gabbard, who barely managed to qualify for the debate and has suspect ties to Syria and Russia, took aim at the surging Buttigieg’s comments about using the US military to fight Mexican drug cartels in Mexico. While Gabbard didn’t explicitly say Mayor Pete wants to “invade” Mexico, she hinted at it. Buttigieg, who is a nimble debater, was quick to return fire at Gabbard asking if anyone in the audience believes if any of the people on stage want to invade Mexico, which got quite the laugh.
