Buttigieg likens Trump to a ‘crazy uncle’

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Thursday likened his approach to taking on President Donald Trump to dealing with a “crazy uncle.”
“It’s almost like a sort of crazy uncle management,” the Democratic primary candidate said. “Like, he’s there. You’re not going to disrespect his humanity. But he thinks what he thinks. There’s not much you can do about it.”
In an hourlong live interview with The Washington Post, Buttigieg refused to personally attack the 23 challengers he faces in the Democratic primary. But he had plenty to say about the president.
“Any energy that goes his way — including energy that goes his way in the form of criticism — turns into a kind of food,” Buttigieg said. “He just devours it and gets bigger. What we’ve got to learn is how to kind of stiff-arm him.”
“It’s actually getting harder and harder to find a policy of this administration that most Americans don’t disagree with,” he continued. “Which is exactly, of course, why they need it not to be about policy.”
