Lis Smith is Pete Buttigieg’s ‘comms adviser’ so we’re not surprised she was doing her best to cheer her guy on but man, his comment on late-term abortions was actually pretty damn awful. Even for a Democrat.

Jonah Goldberg said it best.
Fewer than 1% of executed prisoners are innocent. Fewer than 1% of captured enemy combatants are tortured. Fewer than 1% of minorities questioned by police are shot. I just don’t understand the moral logic or saying because something bad is rare we shouldn’t care. https://t.co/9nPjyZhwQL

And Jonah was so polite about it, too.
Fewer than 1% of shootings are done by 'assault rifles' so im sure Pete will not be following his Dem colleagues on calling for stupid gun bans https://t.co/dBjdLnSCds

Probably not the best argument – sorry, not sorry Lis.
While he pretends to be a sane/moderate DEM, @PeteButtigieg is a left wing pro-abort extremist like the rest of 'em.

They’re all so similar with so little to actually run on.
Less than 1% of gun violence involves an "assault rifle", too, yet that and a bunch of other super rare and statistically irrational fears are used by Democrats as well.

Fewer abortions are due to rape and incest combined than are late term abortions. So, why do we focus on the former and minimize the latter?

are you even aware of how disgusting a number you are so giddy about with even 1%?
y’all are some seriously messed up murderous fucks.

Just because it is rare doesn't mean it isn't bad

Just like rape and incest.

Great moment? Are you crazy?

Doing the math here, in 2015, there were 8,296 babies killed after 20 weeks gestation. There have been 45,789,558 abortions since 1973. Applying the same percentage, that is a staggering 595,264 babies. Let that sink in. This is far from rare.

1.3% of a very large number indeed.

Great, so long as you’re not in the 1%.

This was NOT the win she thought it was.
