Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has gone past lying to the people to actually threatening America.
On Monday, Buttigieg made an appearance on The Breakfast Club to promote President Joe Biden’s $2.5 trillion infrastructure plan and police reform.
When asked for his opinion about how Army Lt. Caron Nazario was treated by the Virginia police, Buttigieg said, “I don’t know. I have [no] words for how that makes me feel.” He then voiced out that he was against “one of our troops in uniform being treated that way.”
Lt. Nazario had been filmed getting pepper-sprayed as the Virginia police locked him in handcuffs.
Then, the host asked him, “Does this administration really care about holding police accountable?” to which Buttigieg immediately said, “Absolutely.”
“That’s why this administration, for example, is pushing for the George Floyd Policing Act to be passed,” he continued. “The House passed it. We need to get that through the Senate.”
“This country is not whole until something changes. And I think I know that’s important to the president,” he added. “It’s important, I think, to everybody in this administration, and the country will be hurting until we can fix this.”
“But when does it stop?” the host asked. “It seems like it’s the same scenario over and over and over and over again. It just seems like there’s no accountability and nothing ever.”
Buttigieg then responded that “there has to be accountability.” He continued, “That’s part of what needs to change in terms of reforms.”
Buttigieg added that most are local decisions, but “there is also a national culture,” where “national laws like the George Floyd Act would make a difference.”
“We’re up against the entire history of this country… We’re up against 400 years. But I really believe it has to change in our lifetime or the country doesn’t make it,” he said.
So it’s either police reform or the downfall of the country. Aren’t the Democrats leading America there already?
