During the visit, the two gentlemen at lunch, complete with hot sauce and fried chicken.
The South Bend mayor, who’s been surging in the polls, met with Al Sharpton Monday in New York City.
The two had lunch at Sylvia’s, a soul food institution in the city, as the White House hopeful looked for guidance on how to connect with black voters.
During the lunch meeting, Buttigieg asked if it was okay for him to eat his fried chicken with his hands.
“It’s not rude to eat with my hands is it?” – @PeteButtigieg says as he grinds through a piece of fried chicken.
“No, no, go ahead, eat chicken with your hands,” Al Sharpton replies. pic.twitter.com/tDP3mpXNbA

Twitter users were quick to respond to the shameless stunt.
“Trying to imagine the media response if a Republican asked Al Sharpton the proper way to eat fried chicken.”

“What century are these Democrats in? Do they really think they still have to go bow before shady Al Sharpton and kiss his ring? Embarrassing.”
