This video of 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg was reportedly edited down from over an hour of footage, so we’re not sure if he ran the whole way during the Memorial Day parade or if this is just the highlight.
The best 2 minutes 15 seconds of @PeteButtigieg running during the Memorial Day parade yesterday, compiled from over an hour of footage, along with the small horde of media and campaign staff running after him.

We’ll give Mayor Pete this much; it’s a much better look than Hillary Clinton leisurely walking a parade route while campaign aides literally corral her in with ropes to keep the media from getting too close. Buttigieg just dares them to catch up.
I don’t know if I’m more embarrassed for him or the reporters chasing him. https://t.co/PVwWV6yzM4

When Mayor Pete said he would be running for President, he really meant running.

Adorable, but he is doing parades wrong. It's not a 5K.

Those dress shoes must be really well made with excellent support.

I'm confused as to why he's running in khakis, a dress shirt, and some dress shoes.

Why is he running? Did the parade leave without him and he's trying to catch up? These are things I need to know.

Generational change candidates don’t ride in cars and throw candy in parades, they run awkwardly down the streethttps://t.co/rI53W4TS4u

Way too funny, he looks silly as hell. PS: that is not running.

As a Boring Gay, I just wanna say I'm happy to see this level of Boring Gay Representation in the media https://t.co/Mm3UmlnYmY

Notice how nobody is following him except the press… this screams "manufacturing popularity"

This is just b-roll for Running with Buttigieg, a follow-up documentary coming soon on HBO about a failed campaign that had the feeling of a moral victory. https://t.co/gqzXG7ZxwM

He’s so strange.

Can you imagine this goof as president?

At least he wasn’t carrying his spouse’s purse like Chris Matthews.

Huh? TIME cover of the Buttigieg ‘first family’ is a display of ‘heterosexuality without women’ https://t.co/bU4ReAoo2x
