Kirsten Gillibrand Speaks Mandarin, But All Anyone Can Talk About Is Mayor Pete
Unfortunately, Gillibrand’s command of Mandarin has made barely a blip in the news cycle. At the same time, media outlets have been falling
all over themselves to cover Pete Buttigieg, the polyglot mayor of South Bend, IN. Buttigieg, who has recently experienced a
surge in the polls and has raised an impressive $7 million in this year’s first quarter, reportedly either speaks or is proficient in, in addition to English, French, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Arabic, Maltese, and Dari. (Oh, and he’s a
Rhodes Scholar — so in case you haven’t caught on, he’s really, really, smart.)
