Pete Buttigieg Blasted For Using Military Aircraft To Fly To Sports Event In Europe

Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is under fire for reportedly using U.S. military aircraft to fly himself and his husband to a sporting event in Europe.

The optics of this are especially bad because we have just gone through weeks of stalled and cancelled flights for millions of Americans at the holidays.

Buttigieg didn’t have to worry about that when it came to his flight.

According to a calendar obtained by Americans for Public Trust (APT), Buttigieg flew from Joint Base Andrews in Washington, D.C. to Rotterdam in the Netherlands on a “MilAir Flight,” only to return two days later.

On April 13, 2021, President Joe Biden announced that Buttigieg would lead a presidential delegation of lawmakers and administration officials to the multi-sport event that is held for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women.

However, Twitter users called out the Biden staffer for traveling freely as thousands of Americans were left stranded in airports over the holiday season for his lack of duties with airlines.

“While families’ holiday travel plans were upended by his department’s failures, Buttigieg has used their tax dollars to avoid problems he created,” APT tweeted.

“Secretary Buttigieg’s travel woes keep piling up with this newest revelation that he and his husband took a private jet for a European trip,” Caitlin Sutherland, executive director of Americans for the Public Trust, told Fox News Digital.

“Taxpayers, who just had their holiday plans completely upended because of Buttigieg’s travel mismanagement, should be furious.”

Isn’t Pete always telling us how much we should care about climate change?

Everything is different when Democrats do it.
