US Senate Confirms Buttigieg To Head Transportation Department

Pete Buttigieg, a former mayor who challenged Joe Biden for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Tuesday on a 86-13 vote to head the U.S. Transportation Department.

Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, will oversee aviation, highways, vehicles, pipelines and transit, as well as efforts to ensure safe transportation in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. He is also the first openly gay Senate-confirmed Cabinet secretary.

  1. Why? He was a bad mayor and going to be an even worse Transportation Secretary. He’s the Hunter of Biden’s administration – of course it doesn’t hurt that he’s used for being gay.

    1. No dear, gay is no longer considered token or novelty.—you must be very old—perhaps Pete is simply worthy.
      And how was he a bad mayor?—do you really have proof of it? Doubt it

  2. Firstly Betsy how much governmental experience did orange 🍊 man have before becoming PRESIDENT?!
    Are you completely whack?!
    Secondly can you tell us just HOW Pete Buttigieg wasn’t good at his mayorship in the “small” town of Indiana?

  3. Now here’s another winner in the Biden cabinet. The guy who graced the cover of “Mad” magazine in the day. Mayor Pete has soooo much experience being in government..the ex mayor of a town in Indiana, and he wasn’t even good at that. He was placed in the cabinet position for one reason, diversity as a gay man. Bidens the King of virtue signalling. How predictable.

  4. The 13 Senators opposing the confirmation were predictably
    Blackburn, Cassidy, Cotton, Cruz, Hagerty, Hawley, Lankford, Marshall, Rubio, Shelby, R. Scott, T. Scott and Tuberville.
