Friday on The Breakfast Club podcast, co-host Charlamagne tha God stunned Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg by informing him that many black Democrats believe the Party has failed to keep its promises.
“You do realize Pete, a lot of Black people feel like Democrats have kept no promises since they’ve been in office,” Charlamagne began.
“Really?!” the diversity hire Buttigieg exclaimed.
“Look I get it, because the work is not done,” Buttigieg tried to recover. “But the reason I say ‘really’ is we just passed one of the biggest pieces of infrastructure legislation in American history. It was a promise, and it wasn’t just a promise that the Biden-Harris administration made or that us Democrats made in 2020. This is a promise that every president and every Congress has made in some way shape or form since I’ve been an adult, and we actually did it.”
“Those are big, broad things and that’s great but I’m talking about things like, things you campaigned on, like the George Floyd Policing Act and the fact our voting rights. 19 states have implemented voter suppression bills. You know that’s going to directly impact us the most. The only strategy the Democrats are going to have is ‘we gotta go out there and vote in mass numbers’ to fight it. That’s not a strategy.”
Buttigieg caved: “You’re absolutely right. That work is not done. That work has to get done and it’s not acceptable where we are right now.”
To say that what the Democrat Party has done since taking the White House is “not acceptable” is a whopping understatement. The Party has wreaked more havoc on America than any administration in U.S. history, and even black Democrats are getting fed up with it.
