Maternity Leave: He can stay home

While hundreds of thousands of shipping containers wait aboard bottlenecked ships at America’s ports, our Transportation Secretary spent the last two months on maternity leave.

Yup. Pete Buttigieg and his spouse Chastity … Charity? Chastened? Whatever the hell his name is … had twins in August. Okay, they didn’t have the babies. The woman they paid to get pregnant actually gave birth to them. Though, that didn’t stop Pete and Chastity … Charity? Chastened? … from posing on a hospital bed as if one of them actually went through the labor.

Maternity Leave: He can stay home

And since that time, Pete has been on paid maternity leave.

Well, for some “birthing people” postpartum depression can be a bear.

Besides, we have to give Pete time to lose the baby weight and get his figure back.

Apparently the news that the guy who is supposed to be in charge of America’s supply chain was off on maternity leave for two months didn’t get any play until last night when Politico confirmed it.

But the way I see it, having Pete off maternity leave and back to work probably won’t change a single thing. Far as I’m concerned, let him stay home.

Pete Buttigieg was selected to head up Transportation based on one qualification. He’s gay.

It certainly isn’t because Pete is some logistics expert. In fact, when he was nominated, Pete cited as his qualifications a “personal love of transportation” and fond memories of riding trains.

Oh, and according to NPR, “he proposed to his now-husband, Chasten, in an airport terminal.”

Chasten! That’s it. Chasten. Okay, I was close.

Pete’s resume is so thin, it’s probably printed on vellum.

Let him stay home on maternity leave. It isn’t as if his presence in the office is going to make a damn bit of difference.

For crying out loud, Mayor Pete couldn’t even fix the damn potholes in South Bend.

Now, I’m a little irritated with Donald Trump at the moment. Yesterday his stupid PAC sent me over a dozen emails in a 12-hour period begging for money. When you annoy me harder than the assholes who call about my car warranty, you go on my shit-list.

But I have zero doubt that a Trump administration would have taken care of this supply chain problem in a matter of days. Trump wouldn’t have made busy-work like forming Blue Ribbon Committees and Round Table Discussion Groups. Because Donald Trump is a logistics master. You have to be if you’re a developer who works in the building trade.

Trump knew how to cut through the federal red tape and streamline the process to get things done quickly.

He got three friggin’ vaccines developed in a matter of months!

But Pete “I have a personal love of transportation” Buttigieg? C’mon, man. He doesn’t have the first idea how to tackle this problem. So let him stay on maternity leave until his twins graduate from high school for all the good he’s worth.

Believe me. In the office, out of the office. It won’t change a thing.

    We are actually lucky that so many don’t show up for work. Imagine the mess we would be in if they did.

    Petey’s only claim to fame is his being gay. He does not have any credentials that provide any reasoning for his being Mayor of South Bend or Head of the Department of Transportation.

    South Bend is a college town (Notre Dame) and his election there was virtue signalling along with the fact that South Bend is not all that nice outside of the Notre Dame campus (at least in many neighborhoods) so if a Gay White guy runs for mayor, why not elect him. Even if nothing changes at least we can claim we are not anti gay.

    Now with the Department of Transportation, Petey’s appointment is a consolation prize for his failed run for the nomination. Sort of the same thing as South Bend. Not a job that anyone really wants but what the heck, we’ll nominate Mayor Pete because then we can claim we are not anti-gay.

    The left has a long history of symbolism over substance and this is no different. Pete has no credentials but fits the larger narrative that democrats are for the minorities…..

    And, maybe the appointment also keeps one more person from telling the truth about Biden’s dementia. The position is a payoff.

    It hurts to look at those two freaks! Who is pretending to be the mommy? What a perfect avatar for this clown-show ‘government’. What is the current definition of NORMAL?

    My wife and I have raised four adopted children from infancy in a stable, normal home. The flaming hoops we jumped through, and expenses we incurred, were well worth giving these children the chance to grow up safely. There are many childless couples (male/female) who would open their homes to a child, but simply cannot afford the exorbitant fees attached to adoption. Seeing this pair of mentally ill reprobates given two newborns makes me ill. These children will grow up being bombarded with the message that this “husband” and whatever should be considered normal and their deviancy must be accepted and celebrated. The Creator of the universe has declared their lifestyle to be an abomination. Our “modern” society is making the former residents of Sodom and Gomorrah look like rank amateurs.

    Pete Buttplug is indeed worthless. But as one who spent a career at an agency within DOT, I can tell you that all of his DOT Secretary predecessors were worthless, too. Political figurehead position is all it is.

    Look at all the Democrat presidential candidates from Kamala to Mayor Pete to Bernie to Fauxcahantas Warren—all given positions in the administration that have allowed them to demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that none are capable of handling the presidency.

    That picture is disgusting. Which “wife” delivered the twins. That must have hurt. How is the breast feeding going? The democrats can do all they want to pretend this is normal, but the majority of Amerikans still know they are perverts!

      I agree. It turns my stomach.

    “Pete’s resume is so thin, it’s probably printed on vellum.”

    Naah. It’s a palimpsest. Started out as the flimsy AstroGlide product box insert and Petey-girl leff it in the pocket of an apron that went through the wash a couple of times and wore off the printing.

    Pete was given paternity leave but Chasten is the husband of the family. How does this work?

    This is an actual photo. They posed for it. A real camera captured the image. No photoshopping. No, can’t be real. Unbelievable.

    Thought you surely had created the graphic

    None of this crap surprises me anymore and I’m beginning to believe that that’s the intent.

    It’s as though they have a Blue Ribbon Committee for “You can’t make this sh*t up” and hold Round Table Discussion Groups to map out how to fall just short of “Nice try”.

    They can’t possibly be attempting to succeed… can they?

    When will the wonderful word FREAK gain currency in conversation regarding Leftists? It’s what they are, and they want it to spread. Schools, from K through Grad-school are run by FREAKS. Let’s give them credit! They used to be relegated to side-shows at carnivals and State fairs. Now, they are being mainstreamed! Can this end well?
