Pete Buttigieg’s biggest nightmare just came true

Pete Buttigieg has been failing since he took his job as Transportation Secretary. But things just got so much worse.

And Pete Buttigieg’s biggest nightmare just came true.

As Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg was responsible for ensuring disasters like the toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio didn’t happen.

Instead, Buttigieg only visited the disaster area after former President Trump did, with many saying it was too little too late.

Since then, two more Norfolk Southern trains have derailed across the United States.

But instead of addressing these issues, Buttigieg has largely been silent on these developments, instead pushing Biden’s call for legislation banning airlines from charging family seating fees.

But Pete won’t be able to ignore the issue any longer after he saw this damning report.

A majority of likely voters want Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to resign for his handling of the hazardous train crash in East Palestine, Ohio, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Monday.

As previously stated, Buttigieg chose to visit the state after Trump, who had already given truckloads of water and bought first responders and others lunch. Buttigieg had previously stated that he would visit the area when the “time is right.”

The moment happened to be right after Trump’s visit. Yet, neither Buttigieg nor his spokeswoman explained why it took about three weeks to visit the area at the time of the visit. In reality, Buttigieg’s press secretary refused to answer questions in front of the camera:

Buttigieg’s handling of the East Palestine train catastrophe appears to have convinced enough probable voters that he should resign.

The survey asked, “Should Buttigieg resign as a result of how the Transportation Department handled the recent train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio?”

The majority, 51 percent, believe he should resign, while 36 percent believe he should not and 13 percent are unsure.

The majority of Republicans and independents, 68 percent and 51 percent, respectively, feel he should resign, compared to 35 percent of Democrats. A plurality of Democrats, 49 percent, believe Buttigieg should remain in office.

Furthermore, a plurality, 41 percent, say Buttigieg is a “worse” Transportation Secretary than others who have held the position before him.

The survey was conducted among 950 potential voters between March 6 and 8, 2023, and has a +/- 3 percent margin of error.

The comments are similar to those expressed by some House Republicans, notably Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL), who have called on Buttigieg to resign as a result of his bungled reaction to the train catastrophe.

According to Breitbart News:

Waltz condemned Buttigieg and his lack of action and called on him to resign in a resolution co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Claudia Tenney (NY), Ryan Zinke (MT), Clay Higgins (LA), Greg Steube (FL), Mary Miller (IL, Bill Posey (FL), Lauren Boebert (CO), and Mike Collins (GA).

“Over the last two years, Secretary Buttigieg has gone AWOL during multiple national crises,” Waltz explained, citing the recent commercial flight crises to Buttigieg’s failure to effectively respond to the “environmental, and humanitarian disaster in East Palestine.”
