Earlier this week during an interview with CNN, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg made a shocking comment by suggesting that Americans who eat hamburgers or use plastic straws are "part of the problem.
He started by discussing his plan to combat "climate change" and how it was comparable to World War II and the Great Depression.
"It's about summoning the energies of this country. To do something unbelievably hard. If you look at the moments when this country rose to a major challenge, overcoming the great depression, winning World War II, going to the moon, it required something out of all of us."
Buttigieg then went on to claim that those who use plastic straws and eat hamburgers are somehow "part of the problem."
"And I think that we can be standing taller. See right now, we are in a mode where we are thinking about it mostly through the perspective of guilt from using a straw or eating a burger, am I part of the problem? In a certain way, yes! But the most exciting thing is that we all can be part of the solution," he claimed.
This comment immediately got the attention of many in the social media world. Many people began mentioning the hypocrisy from Buttigieg.

Buttigieg's climate change rhetoric has been becoming more and more unhinged in recent weeks. During the CNN climate change town hall, Buttigieg claimed that beating climate change would be just as difficult as winning World War II.
"The fundamental question is how are we actually going to get it done? Because we've been having the same conversation for years," the Democratic presidential candidate said on Wednesday.
"In order for that to happen, we have to actually unify the country around this project. And that means bringing people to the table who haven’t felt they have been part of the process. I mean, this is the hardest thing we will have done, certainly in my lifetime, as a country. This is on par with winning World War II, maybe more challenging than that," he noted.
