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.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
