A New York Times report reveals that the widespread annoyance comes after Buttigieg declared last week that the Democratic primary race was a "two-way" run between him and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.).
Former vice president Joe Biden—who leads Buttigieg in virtually every poll—responded with mockery, joking to reporters, "Well, good, I hope they do well."
It wasn't the first time that Biden had smirked at Buttigieg. After the 37-year-old candidate launched his exploratory committee in January, Biden greeted him as "Mr. President" during a meeting with several other mayors, in a "voice dripping with condescension," according to the Times.
Other candidates have mocked Buttigieg as well, citing his youth and relative lack of political experience as disqualifications for his candidacy.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) called his comment about Warren "naive." Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.) said that if she was running with his levels of political experience, she wouldn't be taken "seriously." And former congressman Beto O'Rourke called Buttigieg a "a human weather vane," who represented the worst of politics, according to aides.
