Buttigieg on Trump tweets: ‘I don’t care’

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg dismissed President Trump’s tweets mocking him on Sunday just hours after the president again took aim at the South Bend, Ind., mayor. 

“I don’t care,” Buttigieg told Fox News’s Chris Wallace at a town hall in Claremont, N.H.

{mosads}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.    

Trump has also taken aim at other Democratic primary candidates, particularly former Vice President Joe Biden, calling him “Sleepy Joe.”
