Photos: East Palestine Mayor Gave The Ultimate Humiliation To The Secretary Of Transportation After Pete Buttigieg Waited To Visit The Town For 20 Days

From East Palestine, Ohio, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg addressed the media and apologized for his delayed response to the train catastrophe. He also urged former President Donald Trump to take action and push for more controls on trains.

You brought up a well-known politician from another state who has decided to intervene. You may be referring to Donald Trump here. Then you said, “Please assist me.” “How can he help?” a reporter posed to Buttigieg.

However, reality paints totally different picture!

After the train derailment on February 3 in East Palestine, Ohio, Pete Buttigieg, the United States secretary of transportation, waited to visit the town for 20 days.

The mayor of East Palestine gave the secretary of transportation the ultimate humiliation.

Buttigieg was in East Palestine, Ohio; but town Mayor Trent Conaway was meeting with former President Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, leaving the transportation secretary waiting in the hall.


There is a good reason East Palestine, Ohio, Mayor Trent Conaway kept Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg waiting in the hall for a reported 30 minutes, according to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Newsmax.

Buttigieg “doesn’t know a damn thing about emergency response,” Giuliani told Thursday’s “Eric Bolling The Balance” about Buttigieg waiting 20 days before coming to the scene of a train derailment that spewed toxic chemicals into the environment. “This has been going on for two weeks, and he hasn’t acted.

“He should have been fired by now. If he worked for me as a commissioner of transportation, and he was absent for two weeks, and made a statement like – ‘this happens 1,000 times a year’ – he’d be looking for a new job now, because he’s obviously not up to this one.”

Giuliani noted he was invited to East Palestine because of his experience in crisis management, having aided the 9/11 response as the mayor of New York City when the Twin Towers collapsed and there was toxic fallout.

“I’m asked to come to these things,” Giuliani told host Eric Bolling, rejecting Buttigieg’s claims his critics were there as “political” opportunist. “Today I had a very, very good session with the mayor. I would think a heck of a lot more productive than Mr. Lightweight.”

Giuliani said he did not know he was leaving Buttigieg waiting in the hall, but Mayor Conaway was getting more from his expertise than he would have from an unqualified transportation secretary.

Peter Puffer Pete.
He’s probably a lot more qualified hanging out at the public train station MEN’S room.
