& # 39; There were these little mosquitoes in the area! & # 39; Pete Buttigieg says that a bizarre spot on his forehead during the debate was probably a BUG that he & # 39; broke & # 39; when he went on stage after an advertising break
- Debate viewers saw a dark spot on Buttigieg's forehead during the debate
- Was not there when he walked on stage, later disappeared after a commercial break
- The young mayor of Indiana said he thought it was a mosquito he had struck
- Twitter shouted and discovered & # 39; how he shaved himself on his forehead & # 39;
Pete Buttigieg & # 39; s mysterious forehead plot during Tuesday night's Democratic primary debate was probably a dead bug, he said Wednesday morning, explaining one of the more bizarre stories of the night.
The South Bend, the face of the mayor of Indiana, was spotless when he arrived on the stage in Detroit, but it wasn't long before TV viewers wondered if he had bred a spontaneous birthmark.
And halfway through the second hour it was gone.
& # 39; Did you have a smoodge on your forehead last night? & # 39; CNN morning host Alisyn Camerata asked him Wednesday.
& # 39; Our best guess is that there were some mosquitoes around. Maybe I hit one and got it on my forehead, & Buttigieg replied. & # 39; I don't know. I only knew later. That's the thing to have something on your forehead. & # 39;
South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg had a mysterious forehead spot during much of Tuesday's Democratic primary debate in Detroit, but it disappeared after a commercial break
37-year-old Buttigieg revealed on CNN on Wednesday morning that he probably had a mosquito on his own face & # 39; beaten & # 39;
Buttigieg's head was spotless when he entered the stage at the beginning of the debate; it is not clear when the blemish appeared
Camerata laughed that it was very cool that you killed a mosquito on the way out. I think that set the tone. & # 39;
& # 39; It exhibits lightning-fast reflexes & # 39 ;, said co-host John Berman.
& # 39; Well, & # 39; Buttigieg chuckled, & you want to show that you can do many things at the same time in this election. & # 39;
Twitter released a collective cry on Tuesday night about the bewildering place, a mini-Gorbechev face feature that some viewers thought was a challenge to focus on the words of the 37-year-old mayor.
& # 39; Buttigieg has a great debate, & # 39; tweeter, former democratic political adviser Mike Feldman, & # 39; but many are distracted and try to figure out how he shaved his forehead. & # 39;
Tuesday's debate was the first of two nights, each with 10 Democrats arguing for their role as a Trump assassin party
Washington Post reporter Michael Scherer noted with some relief, 80 minutes in the debate, that & Buttigieg cleaned the crust of his forehead during the commercial break. & # 39;
And Turner Classic Movies host Bob Mankiewicz grinned: & Elizabeth Warren had a plan to wipe Pete Buttigieg's forehead. And it worked! & # 39;
Buttigieg was one of the 10 Democratic presidential candidates who cleared the field in Detroit on Tuesday evening. Another 10 will be debating Wednesday.
