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.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
