Klobuchar On Defensive After MASSIVE Gaffe

Via The Washington Examiner:

Amy Klobuchar offered an excuse on why she couldn’t name the Mexican president in an interview with Telemundo, clapping back at Pete Buttigieg, who has turned her blunder into a punchline on the campaign trail.

 “I would say to the mayor: This isn’t like a game of Jeopardy! This is about, to me, experience. And I have so much respect for him and his experience, but my experience is different,” the Minnesota senator said Tuesday night during a CNN town hall.

Klobuchar, along with rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination Tom Steyer, made the faux pas last week when she sat down with Telemundo, an American Spanish-language TV network, ahead of Saturday’s Nevada caucuses, the first contest where an influential number of Latinos will be part of the primary process.

Buttigieg over the weekend was asked about the hiccup by comedian-turned-supporter Keegan-Michael Key during a stop in Henderson, Nevada.
