Buttigieg: Trump faked disability to avoid draft

Pete Buttigieg, the South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential hopeful, isn’t angry at Donald Trump, he’s disappointed.

At least that’s the tone Buttigieg struck Thursday at a live event with the Washington Post, where he contrasted his military service to Trump hosting a reality-TV show and then accused the president of “faking” a disability to get out of serving in the Vietnam War.

Buttigieg, who served in Afghanistan, raised the issue in the interview with the Post’s Robert Costa, saying, “I don’t have a problem standing up to somebody who was working on season seven of Celebrity Apprentice when I was packing my bags for Afghanistan.”
