Buttigieg ‘Joke’ About Supply Chain Falls Flat

It is hard to think of a Biden Cabinet member that has been less visible than Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

After being plastered all over the media in the first few months of the administration, making gaffe after gaffe, he has been less visible than Kamala Harris.

Well, he just popped his head up… he should have stayed hidden.

Keep Quiet, Pete

As the Secretary of Transportation, the supply chain very much falls under his purview.

With stores already showing empty shelves, prices rising, and the real danger of a holiday season with empty store shelves, now is not the time to crack a joke.

Americans want answers, not funny men, but Buttigieg remains unplugged into the problems Americans face these days.

When Buttigieg was asked about a possible holiday supply shortage, he responded, “I think there have always been two kinds of Christmas shoppers.

“There’s the ones who have all their list completed by Halloween, and then there’s people like me who show up at the mall on Christmas Eve…if you’re in that latter bucket, obviously there’s going to be more challenges.”

His failed joke did not go unnoticed by Republicans.

Ronna McDaniel, the head of the RNC, immediately tweeted out, “Between mandates and crumbling supply chains, the Biden admin actually seems determined to cancel Christmas.”

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) also commented, stating, “The White House is saying that that’s you’re probably not going to be able to get everything you want for Christmas.

“Well, I mean, who’s going to save Christmas for Americans? Pete Buttigieg? I mean, please. Pete Buttigieg couldn’t organize a one-car funeral.

“He’s not going to organize our nation’s ports and railroads and highways and airports.”

Sadly, Cotton is correct.

When Buttigieg was nominated for this post, I pushed back immediately on his qualifications.

Buttigieg was the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, a city of just more than 100,000, and he could not get the transportation issues in that city under control.

If that was the case, how could he possibly be expected to manage the transportation infrastructure of the entire country?

With shipping containers piled up on docks and a supply chain shortages already impacting the country, I think we have our answer to that question.

    1. I’m telling you, this Administration is so corrupt and dishonest. The thing that scares me is that Biden has only been in office just about 9 months and look at the damage he has caused already and we have 13 months before the midterm election. The Democrats know that they are toast in the upcoming election and this is why they are going too do all they can before then. Standby people, it’s only going to get worse.

  1. The corupt left only knows to lies ,censor the truth ,steal elections and money laundering the tax dollar.use racism and play dictators.

  2. What is the best remedy for a “political panic attack?”
    Between grandiloquent Pelosi, mega-threatening Maxine Waters, &
    Bumfuzzled Biden, does anyone have a feasible remedy for this intentionally created havoc?

  3. Good Evening well I’ve said this before you get what you elect keep listening to the democrats and the news media according to them creeps there’s nothing wrong so wake ⏰up America United We Stand Divided We Fall Remember M A G A America well I our President Donald J Trump was right!!!!!!!!

  4. Pete wasn’t qualified to be the mayor of West Bend let alone run our transportation department for America. Just another inept individual of all the other clowns biden has appointed to positions in his failed administration.
    Way over their heads with no idea on how to fix problems, mainly because they’re the problem. The dems are full of do nothing,loud mouths,finger pointing losers. Not a leader amongst the whole traitorous bunch.
    VOTE RED & save America from the traitor dems.

  5. Pete is totally incompetent ,and as useful as a nipple on a boar hog although Pete may have a lower IQ statistically , considering most hogs ,and politicians .

  6. We’re toast. It’s so sad. This is the worst administration I have seen in my lifetime. An absolute nightmare!
