Pete Buttigieg epicly defeats Ron DeSantis

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg blasted Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) for boasting about stripping LGBTQ+ rights.


Sec Buttigieg said on CNN’s State Of The Union:

I’ll choose my words carefully, also because I’m acting as a secretary so I can’t talk about campaigns, and I’ll put aside the weirdness of posting a video as manhood stitches images of you between oiled-up, shirtless bodybuilders , and just get down to the larger issue that pops into my head when I see these things in politics: who are you trying to help? Who do you want better off? And what public policy problems do you get up in the morning thinking about how to solve them?

You know what our focus as an administration is on getting things done to make people better off. I’ve spent my week traveling across the country to places benefiting from infrastructure funding. We have been to Appalachia, a community in eastern Kentucky that has been completely devastated by flooding, and we are providing them with highway funding that will not only help them improve the road, but also the dam and protect them from flooding in the future to protect. A few weeks ago we were in North Dakota, where there was a railroad crossing that had been a headache for the community for decades. And thanks to President Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure funds, we finally have the resources to do something about it, and we’re going to improve that and make holding first responders no longer a problem.

These are the kinds of problems that most of us in government, politics and public service have to work on. And I just don’t understand the mentality of someone who gets up in the morning thinking they’re going to prove their worth by vying to see who can make life the hardest for a hardest hit community that’s already so vulnerable in America .

Buttigieg had to be careful with his comments because the Hatch Act prohibits government officials from using their official position for electoral activities, but he made his point clear.

Republicans like Ron DeSantis want to make life harder for people who already have a hard time in the United States. Republicans aren’t about making people’s lives better. Republicans are trying to divide America to the core so they can win elections with right-wing extremism.

It’s almost too easy to bring down DeSantis and his failed culture war campaign, but the question voters need to ask is what kind of government they want.

Do they want a government that helps or harms the people?

The answer to this question will go a long way in determining who will win in 2024.
