WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a speech to inspire and encourage Americans facing record-high prices at the pump, Transportation Secretary Puttigieg encouraged people to ease some of that pain by simply getting a six-figure government job with free car service and unlimited parental leave.

"Look—for every American, the way out of this is simple," said Buttigieg. "All you have to do is run for president, drop out of the race, and then get appointed as Transportation Secretary! I never have to pay for my own gas! It worked for me, and I know it can work for you! Also, it helps if you're gay. Try to be gay as well. That usually works."

His comments were met with criticism by those who found them insensitive to people who aren't gay and don't have a high-paying government job and a free chauffeur.

Kamala Harris later clarified Buttigieg's comments, saying: "Gas prices very high. But all the people have low money. That make buy gas hard. So, basically, that's bad."

The Transportation Secretary assured Americans that he understands the pain that comes with high gas prices, and has promised to do something about it as soon as he's finished tearing down all the racist bridges.

Is he back at work? The guy took months off during the worst transportation crises in recent history and no one realized it.

He was more relevant when his biggest challenge was getting the Christmas lights up on the bridges in time.

I don't think it is funny and I think it borders on offensive yet I think you have a right to show it.

Have you ever noticed that every time a satire piece about a Democrat is seeded, someone (or many someones!) always declare it unfunny or not satire?

It takes a certain level of mental acuity to recognize and appreciate satire.

"It takes a certain level of mental acuity to recognize and appreciate satire."

Which the seeders and certain commenters here on this 'satire' don't have.  jrSmiley_82_smiley_image.gif

It's not funny nor are those who think it is.

Dude, I can write satire. I understand satire. Most of your comments work in that way, truth be told.

jrSmiley_78_smiley_image.gif   The words “mental acuity” and “Texan” are polar opposites.

Buttigieg is another incompetent member of the Biden government picked to pander to a group. Transportation is a mess and he took leave.

Many of those transportation specialists had no problem driving cross country to drive some meaningless laps around the 

the Beltway (495) around D.C. on Sunday & Monday.

Today a few of them met with Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson to declare their intention to keep driving around D.C. until 

their previous demands are met /s

Since most of the mandates have already expired, been rescinded or blocked in Court, Mr. Brase,

not to be deterred by reality,

will try to continue to have "mandates" lifted on health workers, Federal employees and the military.

Maybe his next stop should be SCOTUS /s

Utterly clueless on Mr. Buttigieg's competence, completely.  
Remember, this is 'satire', duh?
Did he actually 'pander' to any one?

What a fucking assclown.  But it fits right in with this fucked up administration.
