Thousands of flights have been cancelled in the United States in recent days. One airline claimed that the flights were cancelled due to the weather, but most people believe it is due to airline workers walking off the job because of vaccine mandates.
Either way, transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg is nowhere to be found.
Isn’t solving a problem like this kind of part of his job?
Breitbart News reports:
Pete Buttigieg Absent as Flight Delays Snarl Columbus Day Weekend Travel
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was absent Monday as a surge of flight delays snarled travel in the South over the Columbus Day weekend.
Southwest Airlines canceled more than 2,300 flights over the three-day federal holiday weekend, citing limited staffing and bad weather.
The Department of Transportation did not reply to a request for comment from Breitbart News on Monday about Buttigieg’s response to the crisis or about where he spent the weekend.
But Buttigieg’s Twitter account shared a message promoting Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a leftist alternative proposal to the celebration of Columbus Day.
Buttigieg found the time to tweet this?
This Indigenous Peoples' Day, @USDOT honors the history, culture, and achievements of Native Americans and recognizes our role in ensuring Indigenous people have ready access to safe, reliable transportation services.

Reminder: Pete had no qualifications for this job.
Pete Buttigieg was completely unqualified to serve as Secretary of Transportation. But Biden still picked him.
Now, Pete is absent during a transportation crisis that is hurting working-class Americans.

Just a reminder as you're watching Southwest chaos unfold – Pete Buttigieg is who Biden thought would be good to have heading up all of public transportation.
What's Pete saying? Anything? Because it seems like he's as effective as that job as Kamala is at being border czar.

Why is everyone in this administration so incompetent?
