Coincidence? Vivek Ramaswamy and Pete Buttigieg Both Asked Presidential Candidates Questions 20 Years Ago

WLTReport noted a resurfaced 20-year clip of GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy asking then-Democrat presidential candidate Al Sharpton about political experience.

Is Vivek Ramaswamy a Soros Plant? Voting Records Reveal Dirty Secrets

In the video, Ramaswamy asks Al Sharpton: “Reverend Sharpton, Hello. I’m Vivek and I wanna ask you, last week on the show we had Senator [John] Kerry, and this week and the week before, we had Senator [John] Edwards. And my question for you is, of all the Democratic candidates out there, why should I vote for the one with the least political experience?”

“Well, you shouldn’t, because I have the most political experience,” Sharpton replied.

“Don’t confuse people that have a job with political experience,” he added.

Ramaswamy flashed a big grin at Sharpton while he explained his answer.

According to the New York Post, Ramaswamy was then a Harvard University undergrad and asked Sharpton the question at an Oct. 27, 2003, townhall moderated by former MSNBC host Chris Matthews. 

Some social media users say the video raises further suspicion that Ramaswamy is a plant.

“[Newly] released video of Big Pharma Vivek in ‘04 trying to figure out which Democrat candidate to vote for He would go on to apply for & receive a Soros fellowship in law school He never registered as a Republican But now he wants to be the GOP nominee?” DC Draino said.

Now, let's raise the suspicion further with a bizarre coincidence.

I'll loosely use the term 'coincidence' because this writer doesn't believe in coincidences.

Would you believe former Democrat presidential candidate and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg appeared on the same program during the same year?

"In 2003, a young Pete Buttigieg asked presidential candidate Dick Gephardt a question," MSNBC said in 2019.

The townhall moderated by former MSNBC host Chris Matthews occurred Nov. 3, 2003, according to the network's post.


Buttigieg completed his undergrad at Harvard, like Vivek Ramaswamy.

Jack Posobiec found the eyebrow-raising Ramaswamy-Buttigieg connection.

Posobiec provided both the clips.

Social media users commented on the 'coincidence.'

"Holy crap. It's real. Everything is by design," Evan Kilgore wrote.

"If you aren’t raising your eyebrows and asking questions about this," Ian Miles Cheong said.

However, not everyone shared the same opinion.

"They weren’t even on the same 'episode' of the Hardball townhalls. I’m as suspicious as the next guy and don’t like or trust either one, but this is not a big deal. They both went to Harvard," Liberty Belle said.

One commenter proposed an extremely far-reaching theory.

"You're telling me 2024 is actually going to be Vivek vs. Pete?" he asked.
