Buttigieg went on to say that Trump's Twitter account is "a great way to get the attention of the media." 

The mayor said Trump's online behavior is "grotesque," adding that "it is the nature of grotesque things that you can't look away."

His comments came after Trump took aim at Fox News for giving him airtime and compared him to a character from Mad Magazine. 

"Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him," Trump tweeted.
