After a series of viral appearances, former South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg once again proving his adeptness at countering the hypocrisy of the conservative Fox News network.
His latest burn came hours before the final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
In an interview on the network, hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum brought up the unsubstantiated reports that Biden was involved with foreign business deals through his son, Hunter.
Buttigieg offered the perfect comeback.
"If they want to make this about the business deals of a government official, let's talk about the president of the United States having a secret Chinese bank account. That's not like something somebody said that used to work with somebody related to the president in email, that's a matter of documented fact. And they won't even tell us what bank it's with!"
"Does that bother Americans? I'm pretty sure that bothers Americans a lot more than what they're trying to whip up for the last 12 days of this election season."
Buttigieg was invoking recent reporting from the New York Times, which found that Trump had a Chinese bank account not included in his public financial disclosures. Throughout the 2020 campaign, Trump has repeatedly attacked Biden for what he says are the candidate's close ties to China.
People were so here for Buttigieg's retort.
Others have been excoriating Trump for hypocrisy in regards to his bank account in China.
