During a live-streamed interview with Washington Post reporter Robert Costa earlier today, Pete Buttigieg was asked if he thought Donald Trump should have served in the Vietnam War. “Well, I have a pretty dim view of his decision to use his privileged status to fake a disability in order to avoid serving in Vietnam,” the former Naval intelligence officer replied.
