Biden’s Secretary of Transportation His job is not what he enjoys the most. Based on his recent CNN interview with Mayor Pete, it appears that he prefers to be an imagehead and show up for photo opportunities.
“Buttigieg says what he’d rather be doing is trips like Monday’s: Opening the first new airport terminal in Kansas City since Vice President Spiro Agnew was there for a ribbon cutting … celebrating the groundbreaking on a record-busting $4 billion electric vehicle battery plant in DeSoto, Kansas, and talking transportation programs with students at the University of Missouri,” The outlet reported.
“Those events are the things Buttigieg thought he was signing up for with the Cabinet job,” CNN was added.
However, instead he had to face crises such supply chain issues, rail strikes, aviation woes and the toxic train wreck in East Palestine (Ohio) that have shattered thousands of lives.
Buttigieg’s simple message to those who hate him is: He’s a better shopper than them and they’re frauds.
“It’s really rich to see some of these folks – the former president, these Fox hosts – who are literally lifelong card-carrying members of the East Coast elite, whose top economic policy priority has always been tax cuts for the wealthy, and who wouldn’t know their way around a T.J. Maxx if their life depended on it, to be presenting themselves as if they genuinely care about the forgotten middle of the country,” CNN is scathing about Buttigieg
“You think Tucker Carlson knows the difference between a T.J. Maxx and a Kohl’s?” He threw it in for good measure.
Buttigieg’s media therapy blitz included a sit down session with Hillary Clinton. This was also the second time that Buttigieg failed to win. They also discussed untrue criticisms from the naysayers.
“When you read about your biography, your accomplishments, you’re often described as a trailblazer,” Clinton said Buttigieg attended the Clinton Global Initiative University’s event. “You are the first openly gay Cabinet member. You’re the youngest person to ever hold the office of the Secretary of Transportation. You’re one of the youngest people to make a serious bid for the presidency. So there’s no doubt that along the way being the first often requires knocking down some barriers, some misconceptions.”
Buttigieg replied, “Yeah, I mean, again, I’m humbled to have a word like ‘trailblazer’ used when I’m sitting next to you and knowing all the cracks you put in that glass ceiling.”
He assured the voters during that conversation that he was not going to “complain about any frustration associated with coming to an agency and having work to do every day and finding that you’re dealing sometimes with a noise machine that seems to have little to do with your day-to-day work and a lot to do with perceptions about your real or perceived role in presidential politics.”
“It would be very indecent of me to complain about that sitting next to you,” He added that, which attracted a chuckle out of Clinton.
You can find a “noise machine that seems to have little to do with your day-to-day work and a lot to do with perceptions about your…role in presidential politics,” Hillary Clinton hears from Pete Buttigieg

What has not seemed to cross Buttigieg’s mind is that he may be criticized because he stinks at his job, focuses on nonsense issues such as equity over merit, and has a general smarminess about him that no photo-op can fix — not because of his sexual orientation.
