PETE’S PRIORITIES: Rep. Banks Rips Buttigieg for ‘Self-Promotional Documentary’ During Economic Crisis

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.21

Republican Congressman Jim Banks blasted Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Twitter Monday for reportedly taking part in an upcoming documentary as the nation’s supply chain crisis spiraled out of control.

“Secretary Pete doesn’t have time for the supply chain crisis during paternity leave, but of course made room in his schedule for a self-promotional documentary,” posted Banks on Twitter.

 

Mayor Pete, directed by Jesse Moss, goes behind the scenes and on the stump with Pete Buttigieg as he became the first openly gay major presidential candidate, vying for the Democratic nomination. Buttigieg’s campaign was unusual not only because of his gay identity, but for his résumé: his background in elective office was limited to serving as the mayor of South Bend, Indiana (that’s more political experience than Donald Trump brought to the job, but still),” reports Deadline.

“One of the reasons I wanted to make the film is there seemed to be something almost Frank Capra-esque about this notion that a small-town mayor could run for president and be competitive,” Moss tells Deadline. “Of course, I wasn’t sure that was possible when we set out to make the film. I knew that Pete was unusual in many respects–his youth, his Rust Belt profile, the fact that he was a gay man, actually quite brilliant academically.”

BIDENFLATION: Buttigieg Claims Empty Shelves, Supply Chain Problems a Result of Biden’s Successes

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.21

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg irked countless Americans Monday when he told CNN’s Jake Tapper that empty shelves at grocery stores are actually a result of Joe Biden’s successful economic policies.

“Demand is up, because income is up, because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession,” said Buttigieg.

Buttigieg was reportedly in paternity leave in August as the nation’s supply chain chaos unfolded from coast to coast.

“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been on paternity leave since mid-August – with his time off coming amid the Biden administration’s efforts to quell the supply chain crunch and the ongoing infrastructure debate on Capitol Hill to move forward with President Biden’s agenda,” reports Fox News.

 

“For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated,” a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation told Politico Playbook this week. “He has been ramping up activities since then.”

“Supply chain issues are a source of mounting concern as global economies attempt to meet surging demand and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Shortages of basic household items, such as toilet paper, raw materials needed for construction and critical tech components, like semiconductors, have contributed to a surge in prices for consumers,” adds Fox.
