Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., hit back at former South Bend, Ind.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg Wednesday after he challenged her record in Congress, mockingly saying she wished “everyone was as perfect” as the rising Democratic star.
"I wish everyone was as perfect as you, Pete,” Klobuchar said after the two engaged in lengthy war of words over her stance on immigration and her time in Congress.
In an interview with Telemundo last week, three of the Democratic contenders -- Klobuchar, Buttigieg and billionaire Tom Steyer -- were asked to name the president of Mexico -- and none but Buttigieg was able to correctly name President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who is often referred to as AMLO.
The tensions between Buttigieg and Klobuchar, however, appeared to be more of a sideshow to the attacks that every Democratic candidate leveled against the newest member to the debate stage, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
