2020 Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg appeared on Hardball this past Monday, June 3, to answer questions about his policy ideas. One question, however, came from the most unlikely of places: Buttigieg's own past.


While recording the episode of Hardball, host Chris Matthews surprised Buttigieg with an unearthed clip from 2003 of a young Buttigieg, then a student at Harvard, asking a question a similar Hardball College Tour.

The old clip shows Buttigieg asking a question to former Democratic majority leader Dick Gephardt about young people engaging in politics. Gephardt urges all the young people in the audience to get involved as soon as possible—advice Buttigieg, the youngest Presidential candidate in the race, obviously took to heart.


Viewers were astounded the Hardball team managed to track down the old clip.



Buttigieg seeing himself from 16 years ago up on the screen was probably the last thing he expected.

The clip also had many viewers missing Dick Gephardt.

Fortunately, the entire Gephardt family was watching and threw their support behind Buttigieg!



The moment, showing how composed Buttigieg even was as a college student, was undeniably adorable.


Twitter just wanted to pinch young Mayor Pete's cheeks!


It was also touching to see that Gephardt's advice was taken to heart so thoroughly!

Then, in yet another surprise twist, Gephardt himself made a special appearance via satellite!


The 2020 Presidential race is far from over, but Mayor Pete Buttigieg seems to be making a good impression wherever he goes.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
