Reuters has reported President-elect 46* has been informed he picked former primary opponent and staunch surrogate Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his Transportation Secretary, with the important task of insuring a good ride and filling nation's potholes. How Buttigieg serving two terms as mayor of small town South Bend Indiana qualifies as valuable knowledge on transportation issues is only our guess.
Mayor Pete beat out several others with extensive experience including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, butt Pete has some serious chips to cash in with Biden after his crucial endorsement ahead of the Super Tuesday primary elections in March. Mayor Pete has been recently touting his foreign policy knowledge and his allies have been lobbying for a foreign policy post, with some openly suggesting he’d be a great ambassador to the United Nations. (it's rumored he knows where Uzbekistan is located)
Okay Class - Pop Quiz: Name one previous Transportation Secretary
This might not be the right place for Mayor Pete, though. Unless that's the whole idea.....
Pete Buttigieg was so bad at transportation issues as mayor that a pizza company had to fix the city's potholes for him.https://t.co/MvbYGmvxXW— Chris Martin (@chrisjdmartin) December 15, 2020
