Republican Rep. Mike Collins recently unloaded on President Biden’s Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for his mishandling of the train derailment and toxic chemical spill in East Palestine, Ohio.
Collins later added that this major mistake has resulted in many lawmakers now calling for the impeachment Buttigieg.
In transcript provided by Fox, Collins explained, “They should have shown up immediately. Any time we have a problem, as far as small businesses are concerned, you get right to the scene and see exactly what’s going on, so you can assess the problem and figure out what the solution is.”
“Yeah, they sent people up there, but… this thing was a major catastrophe and something like that garners the head of the department showing up,” Collins later added.
Collins then took a personal shot at Buttigieg and said, “They’re more worried about appeasing an administration and gender pronouns than they are putting grease on wheel bearings.”
He later added that Buttigieg only got his position because of “identity politics” and he has no business being in charge of anything.
He explained that Buttigieg “knows nothing about the infrastructure and transportation problems in this country.”
Collins then finally called for Buttigieg’s impeachment and said, “The solution is… you get rid of Pete Buttigieg and get somebody in there that knows what they’re doing and what they’re talking about. We spent over $1 trillion on the infrastructure bill and the rails aren’t safer, roads aren’t any better, and the airports and the runways aren’t any safer.”
The sad truth is that Pete Buttigieg is completely unfit to be America’s transportation secretary. President Biden assigned Buttigieg to the position however he has zero experience in the sector whatsoever. Buttigieg’s impeachment is necessary.
