what's that now?

Trump confusingly tweets he 'can live' with Buttigieg as president

Did former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg just pick up an endorsement from ... President Trump?

The short answer is likely no, but a lot of folks were befuddled by a tweet Trump sent Wednesday, which seemed to indicate he doesn't think losing to Buttigieg would be the end of the world.

Of course, Trump may have simply meant he didn't mind the original poster, Eric Bolling, saying he could stand to see a Buttigieg presidency despite his support for Trump.

Or, perhaps, the president just prefers to face off against Buttigieg because he's confident he'd beat him. Alas, it will likely be a mystery lost to time.
