Yikes: Buttigieg Tries, and Fails, to Speak Spanish at Campaign Event

Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg spoke Spanish at his primary night rally on Tuesday without any hiccups. The crowd ate it up and cheered his near fluent remarks. But when he tried to go bilingual again on Thursday at the League of United Latin American Citizens town hall in Las Vegas, he forgot to brush up on his espagnol.

He began strong, accent and everything. But near the end of his remarks at LULAC he trailed off and forgot the Spanish words for "this evening." So instead he finished in English. It's hard to watch.

Twitter had a field day with his broken Spanish.

Over the years Democratic candidates who are trying to court the Latino vote have tried to outdo each other by speaking Spanish on the campaign trail and during live presidential debates. Looking at you, Beto. I mean Robert.

Gaffes aside, Buttigieg has had a strong first leg in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. He came in a close second to Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) in both the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary.
