Donald Trump, Jr. aka Cocaine Bear went on the far-right extremist Newsmax network on Wednesday spewing blatant homophobia when he referred to U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg as “that gay guy” and claimed that he was in his position merely because of his sexual orientation.
Said Trump Jr.: “Peter has no business in that position, but he’s the guy who had no business running for president. But they let him do that because he was gay, and they checked off a box, and then he didn’t win, but, well, he’s the gay guy, so we’ve got to give him something, let’s make him Transportation Secretary. What does he know about it? Nothing. His failure, after failure, after failure are truly affecting the American people.”

I have seen so many hit pieces and comments against Pete Buttigieg by conservatives lately-even before the train disaster which is in no way his fault. Boebert took a swipe at him being a father, even. Whether you like Pete or not, it seems to me Republicans think he’s going to be the Democratic candidate if Biden doesn’t run and they are scared. Can you even name another Secretary of Transportation from the last 20 years? But Pete is high profile-and it’s more from Republican attacks than anything he’s doing himself.
