Pete Buttigieg is mocked for his father who dances while video of him ‘lifting the roof’ becomes viral
Pete Buttigieg is mocked for this attempt to “raise the roof” while dancing a polling place outside.
The Democratic presidential candidate, 38, smiled and laughed when he registered with Congresswoman Annie Kuster from New Hampshire, who is known for doing the move.
Video of their spontaneous dance session on Tuesday shows how Buttigieg enthusiastically pushes his arms up and down while standing with a group of supporters.
Although Buttigieg looked cheerful in the clip, dozens of people shouted his stiff and ‘uncomfortable’ movements online.

The former mayor of South Bend in Indiana looks to the side to see if others are dancing while he “raises the roof” with congresswoman Annie Kuster.
Although laughing during the interaction, Buttigieg does not manage to move his arms too much, instead limiting the jump to a minimum.
Congresswoman Kuster previously “raised” the roof and moved during the State Of The Union last February, dressed in white as a tribute to the election movement, and was later also listed on SNL.
Dozens of people went to Twitter to mock Buttigieg after the clip of his dad dancing was shared online.

One unimpressed person wrote: “the roof is going to collapse,” and another added, “It’s me when I’m not sure if I thought about putting on a deodorant.”
Someone else joked: “He looks more like allowing the bank robber to take his money, more than lifting the roof.”
Others said the presidential candidate looked ‘uncomfortable’ and said ‘thanks for the nightmares’ under the short clip.
Despite this, some said Buttigieg was ‘cute’ because he tried to join in the dance movement before the primary.

Buttigieg later greeted the results of the New Hampshire primary, who placed him in second place, but Senator Bernie Sanders did not call the winner of the race.
“Here in a state under the motto” Live Free or Die, “you’ve made your own decision,” Buttigieg told a crowd of about 1,200 supporters at Nashua Community College.
Buttigieg lost a small margin to Bernie Sanders in the Granite state and recorded his speech before the race was officially declared.

Both candidates receive nine delegates. And the two were basically tied up in Iowa, with Buttigieg putting Sanders on delegates, while the Vermont senator took the popular vote.
“I want to congratulate my competitors and their supporters on their campaigns here in New Hampshire,” Buttigieg said.
“I admired Senator Sanders when I was a high school student, I respect him to this day and I congratulate him on his strong performance tonight.”
Buttigieg and the other Democratic hope peoples will then compete in the Nevada caucuses, which take place a week from Saturday. A week later, voters in South Carolina go to the polls for the most important of that state.

And three days later ‘Super Tuesday’ takes place, where voters from 14 states will choose their candidates.
President Trump also tweeted about the primary, with some praise for Buttigieg, despite the fact that he had retained an unusual nickname “Bootedgeedge.”
The president said it was “very interesting” that the former mayor of South Bend wanted to end up just over one percent under Vermont senator Bernie Sanders.
‘Bootedgeedge (Buttigieg) is doing pretty well tonight. Running Crazy Bernie for his money, “Trump wrote.

Trump claimed that Warren wanted to drink beer at home instead of campaigning after the primary on Tuesday night
Trump hit a hit as his “low political I.Q” democrat rivals on Tuesday night, as the results of the New Hampshire primary revealed a bad night for Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Andrew Yang.
After a disappointing fourth place for the Massachusetts senator, Elizabeth Warren, Trump claimed that the senator in her speech after the results that called for unity, really “sent out signals that she wants to leave.”
The president also struck Tom Steyer and mentioned the amount of money the billionaire spends on his failing campaign and “Mini Mike” Bloomberg who was not even on Tuesday’s vote.
