Throughout his career in both business and politics, disgraced one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump has been fond of giving people nicknames, probably as a way to pretend that he’s superior to everyone else he encounters, even though the truth is that he’s one of the most insecure losers ever born.
And yet, the failed ex-president decided he’d stoop to a new low with a disgusting attack he launched at Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg via his failing Truth Social site, which is reportedly desperate for cash and on the verge of financial collapse.
Referencing an article from a newspaper he hates, The Washington Post, Trump made a clearly homophobic reference to Buttigieg, writing:
“Wow, is The Washington Post becoming legit. They just reported that the weak and totally ineffective Secretary of Transportation, Pete ‘BUTTedgeedge’ LIED when he said that the Trump Administration’s great and effective reduction in regulations, a giant job producer, had NOTHING to do with the East Palestine Train Derailment. It was just more Dem DISINFORMATION in order to deflect from their gross incompetence.” Trump added: “Really good investigative journalism by The Washington Post. Keep it going!”
This comes just days after Donald Trump Jr. also took a cheap shot at Buttigieg based on his sexual orientation, Newsweek reported:
“Peter has no business in that position, but he’s the guy who had no business running for president. But they let him do that because he was gay and they check off a box and then he didn’t win, but, well, he’s the gay guy, so ‘we’ve got to give him something, let’s make him Transportation Secretary.’
“What does he know about it? Nothing. His failure, after failure, after failure are truly affecting the American people.”
None of this should surprise anyone. After all, both Donald Trump and Don Jr. have repeatedly proven that they’re proud bigots and will stoop to any level if it will help distract from their own massive failure in everything they’ve attempted.
