Pete Buttigieg ripped Donald Trump to shreds for leaving thousands of his supporters stranded in the cold in Omaha on Tuesday.

Fox News host Martha MacCallum had Buttigieg on as a guest last night and she said that Trump has been making more campaign stops in the first half of this week than Joe Biden has.

“I’m not even sure those visits from Donald Trump are really helping him though, right?” Buttigieg countered. “Like, you look at Omaha, his supporters out freezing in the cold, which is a great metaphor for how he has treated his supporters more generally across the country.”

He was referring to a campaign stop where his supporters were left stranded at the Omaha airport in the dark, forced to walk several miles to their cars in the cold when buses didn’t show up. Seven people were hospitalized.

“In Arizona, you’ve got a bunch of people at a rally that has the potential to be a spreader event, which kind of symbolizes his inability to lead us out of this pandemic,” Mayor Pete continued, before MacCallum started to talk over him.

“We’ll see whose strategy turns out to be the right one,” she said.

At the Omaha campaign stop, the weather was so cold that even Trump commented on it.

“I mean, I’m standing here freezing. I ask you one little favor: get the hell out and vote,” he said, getting cheers. “The great red wave. At least you’re down there with each other. I’m all up here and that wind is blowing.”
