In a new interview with CNN’s Isaac Dovere, Pete Buttigieg discussed the Ohio train derailment and fired back at conservative critics.
This morning, we have a new CNN exclusive interview with the Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, speaking to our own Isaac Dovere about a judge is acknowledging some mistakes in his response to the East Palestine, Ohio train disaster. And he admits that he should have gone to the devastated community sooner.
The accident created a political firestorm with Buddha footage at its center. The transportation secretary has become a target of an almost unrelenting onslaught of professional and very personal attacks from conservative media What is the £150? What if not even a size small construction vest fits this guy? It’s draping off of him.
He looks like he’s wearing a costume. If Pothole Pitch seems lazy and out of touch to all of you, that is because it’s true. There’s never been a Cabinet secretary. This flame buoyantly incompetent and this so obviously uncaring, almost to the point of evil. If we’re being honest about it.
British Edge is now hitting back telling CNN it’s really rich to see some of these folks, the former president, these Fox hosts who are literally lifelong Card-Carrying, members of the East Coast elite, who wouldn’t know their way around a TJ Max if their life depended on it, to be presenting themselves
As if they genuinely care about the forgotten middle of the country. You think Tucker Carlson knows the difference between TJ Max and Kohl’s? CNN’s Isaac Dovere did that interview and joins us now, and he has the answer to that question. I was just kidding. I don’t know if this is just kidding.
But it is it is significant that he’s acknowledging the mistake, but also going on the offense a little bit. Yeah. Look what we’ve seen over the last bunch of weeks here with the train derailment and even before that with the flight delays and cancelations that Southwest, any time anything comes up about transportation,
Suddenly it’s people, the judges fault. And there’s a point in the article you don’t have that when when the price of eggs went up. It wasn’t like Tom Vilsack, the agriculture secretary, was on the hot seat in this way, who the judge obviously ran for president and did pretty well.
There is a lot of speculation he’ll run for something more in the future. And that has made him a target. It’s made him a target from the right. It’s made him target for the left, even on things that he doesn’t really control. And in sitting with him, we drove around in
Kansas and Missouri on Monday of last week talking about this. You could see the frustration about it coming through. I asked him about that, about the criticism that he got in there and asked him about whether he said whether he went to Palestine because Donald Trump went. And people
Who think that that’s why he went and he said on the record, we said that’s bull, but use the full word there, then I want you to keep us from getting any fines. No, no, I can’t. But you know what was also interesting in your piece, you talked
To a Democratic member of Congress who will go nameless, nameless in the piece who says Britain’s appeal in 2020 has a fresh face, who wanted to get past the divisions and the divisions and move the nation forward. But this person says it’s sad to see him become a partizan brawler
On Twitter and cable news. He’s become the most polarizing member of Biden’s cabinet. So what is interesting to me about this is that I think there are a lot of ways that Democrats view bitter judges, almost like a viral cable news startup. When he goes on Fox News, a lot of Democrats
Who don’t even really like him in other areas cheer that on. But this member seemed to think that that was actually a knock on it. Yeah, I’m not sure that member is representative of the a lot of the other Democrats in the party and definitely not within the White House.
I mean, the White House loves to have secretary booted judge go across the cables, especially on Fox. It’s something he also did when he tried to make a run for the presidency. And they find they view him as one of their most effective communicators, even in a moment like this when they’re dealing
With the Ohio train derailment. I also just wanted to point out something, when you played that Tucker clip, he used the word flamboyant and he used the word evil. We know what he’s talking about there. He’s talking about an openly gay man by calling him flamboyant and evil, which also speaks to what
We have been talking about during the show, which is this larger message from Fox, from Republicans in trying to attack LGBTQ and transgender people as their wider campaign message. All right. I have to play this. This is from SNL. Kind of spoofing. Exactly. What you’re talking about. But you train exploded.
And who do we blame? Who do we blame? We blame. But Judge where words you judge, this was his responsibility. Unfortunately, he was too busy being a nerd and being gay. Dealt with a very much more important issue of should drains, have big boys and I mean, the fact that he is
Gay is such a huge part of this. Right. One of the things that I asked about was the attention to the shoes that he was wearing there and they were not work boots that he wore when he got to the train derailment site, their boots, their sort of fanciest boots.
And he said to me that that was maddening. And he got his voice, got a little tired as we were talking about this. And he said it’s just when people are talking about things like that, when I’m trying to talk about people’s lives and how to solve the problems here said
That these outlets need to make a choice where his words come, whether they are covering fashion or whether they’re covering policy and whether they’re covering what happens when people are trying to recover from a disaster like this. Yes. Before you jump in, Eva, I mean, one of the broader
Points of all of this is this is the transportation secretary we’re talking about. Most Americans have no idea who that person ever is. And here’s Ray LaHood, a former transportation secretary himself, saying he’s never heard of this level of criticism. Another against another secretary ever. And I’ve been following this a long time.
I’ve never seen it like this before. This is pure politics. It’s politics because people think he’s going to run for president. That’s why. And it is because of his identity. Right. He can’t change the fact that he is gay. And so many of these attacks are bad faith attacks. There’s a
Tweet from a prominent conservative suggesting that him and his husband holding their children is is everything that is emblematic of what’s wrong with America. He can’t he can’t do anything to really argue with that because the terms of the argument are not even fair. I will say, though, in his interview with you,
I think it is good that he is being so publicly contrite and saying, listen, yeah, I did mess up here. And then steering the conversation back to the policy and saying, hey, but now that we have Republicans attention, let’s hold the railroads accountable, something that Republicans in the past have not championed.
That’s probably the only way forward on an issue like this one. And to be clear, he did acknowledge that it was a misstep, not just on his part, but on the White House’s part to just not see the politics of this one coming when clearly this was getting picked up
Very heavily by conservative media as a as a political issue.

It always the same – guy graduates from Harvard – guy never has had a job before – guy runs for office – guy has no idea how to do anything since he’s never had a job.
I don’t know how Pete says racist toads with a straight face. Pete deserves any backlash he gets. He deserves more honestly.
Traverse City Michigan and Homosexualsand
mayor pete bad optics. didn't rush to the scene. stoopid.
Pete Buttgag is an expert at rearenders on the hershey highway
Sec Pete Buttigieg has tackled every job he's been appointed to with commitment. I've no doubt he'd handle the Presidency the same way. Gay doesn't enter into it. His record does.
Here’s the thing…Fox Hosts have been doing this since they started. They have criticized him for being gay, being an average sized human, and anything they can think of that would make them look like they are tough. They are bullies who are just plain cowards.
I was gonna say, well when do you ever hear about transportation disasters this often;
But it’s actually probably is a good criticism; Biden should be held accountable.
Love how fake news thinks all the different races are down and well respected ambassadors of the gay and trans movement and its just white who are anti trans and gay. What a joke.
The train was a real disaster needed real oversight; was only political to them.
Every thing Pete B. person did is uncaring for the American people, a pathetic face
At least Dominion has exposed Fox Fake News for the sham conservative propaganda outlet that everyone already knows that it is.
The people of this clip are so clueless that even Alex Trebek is questioning if they are faking their answers
Shrimp ex mayor does a really bad job at everything…
If ya dial the Dept of Transportation, is that considered a booty call?
Pete is too smart so Fox is not intelligent enough to compete with him.
Pete Buttigieg is so inept and mentally defective that he makes gay and bisexual people, who are brilliant, look exceedingly stupid. This stupidity directly reflects the whole Biden regime. then you have Biden’s Press, secretary, who doesn’t even have a brain. They are trying to help out the gay community and all they are doing is severely damaging it by picking the worst Possible representatives of that community.
FAKE LYING cnn
Pete who took a big SUV then pedalled bike the last half a mile?
Sleeping Pete Buttiplug
Anyone else done with FOX Sputnik anchors?
Buttplug only cares about roleplaying. They're a mom now.
Thank you Kevin McCarthy thank you Fox News for showing the video we finally get to see the video and now we know the truth Washington DC is broken wakeupamerica wake up
So what has Pete accomplished?
Let’s just say what’s really going on here. It is very thinly veiled homophobia to appeal to their base.
Carlson talking about being honest about it. That's rich. 🙈🙄
His name is Pete Buttplug.
Pete should take fashion advice from Ronnie D, who pulled off those white boots better than Nancy Sinatra.
Every FOX news host has two adjectives before the word Democrat or Democrat sir name! How about describing *ucker Carlson …
Remember, Sec. Pete is former US Military! Sorry, Tucker what the hell have you done, but spew names like your "god" the Orange Jackass!
They're paying these idiots for not to doing their jobs Jim Crow Biden and Butthead. Why? Protect the U.S. Constitution.
Federal highways and railroads traffic safety.
Oh no Tucker hurt his feelers 😅
president trump made them all look like fools.
The East Palestine train derailment and problems at Southwest Airlines have made the job of transportation secretary a political nightmare for Pete Buttigieg. And now
Federal subsidies for “green hydrogen” in President Biden’s climate change package could lead to more greenhouse gas emissions because gas companies are using fossil fuels to produce it
The question remains what does flaming Pete Buttigieg feel about Uranus as a whole?!!
When one says Pete did “pretty well..” in the presidential primary, how dumb do you think we are? Is losing every primary “pretty well?”
