"Intelligent and Precise" Interview by Pete Buttigieg
Pete Buttigieg debunks Fox News' reports on the Kavanaugh protesters...
Pete Buttigieg is climbing the ranks alongside Gavin Newsom as being considered the future of the Democratic party. As the United States Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg has been making smart moves and does so using his wise wording and cool composure. Pete’s composure and wise wording were on full display as he was a guest on Fox News with Mike Emanuel where he defended his husband Chasten’s pointed tweet about people protesting justice Brett Kavanaugh at a Washington D.C. restaurant earlier last week.
Mike Emanuel asked Pete Buttigieg if his husband’s tweet was “appropriate.” Pete Buttigieg started his answer with the note of politicians should be free of “violence, harassment, and intimidation” in public locations. He also stated that elected officials will “never be free of criticism or peaceful protest.”
“Remember, the justice [Kavanaugh] never even came in contact with these protesters. They reportedly didn’t see or hear them, and these protesters are upset because a right — an important right, that the majority of Americans support — was taken away. Not only the right to choose, by the way, but this justice was part of the process of stripping away the right to privacy.”
As long as I’ve been alive, the seventh case law of the Constitution protected a right to privacy, and that has now been thrown out the window by the justices, including justice Kavanaugh, who — as I recall — swore up and down, in front of God and everyone, including the United States Congress, that they were going to leave settled case law alone”
Pete Buttigieg continued.
Pete Buttigieg also stated that peaceful protests are a part of the First Amendment rights all Americans share. He also stated that there is a firm difference between the Capitol Riots and the protestors seen outside of the restaurant in which brett Kavanaugh had dinner.
“The nation is reckoning with a mob summoned by the former president … for the purpose of overthrowing the election and very nearly succeeded in preventing the peaceful transfer of power. I think common sense can tell the difference.”
Pete Buttigieg said.
