Buttigieg Drops Insane Amount Of Money On Private Jet Travel. The Irony Is, He’s A Fan Of Green New Deal.

Oh look. More left-wing hypocrisy.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would no doubt be livid with Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg if she saw the insanely massive amount of cash that the South Bend mayor was dropping on private airplane travel, what with him being a big supporter of the Green New Deal and all.

The Green New Deal, AOC’s pet project, calls for ending the use of airplane travel in exchange for super fast trains. Is it any surprise to see AOC is living in some sort of crazy fantasy world? Seems like that’s where she spends the majority of her time. Perhaps she should give us all a ticket to this magical land so we can enjoy the free stuff that seemingly falls from the sky?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

Buttigieg spent roughly $300,000 on charter flights this year, nearly $45,000 more than the second-highest spender, former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden has spent approximately $256,000 thus far, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at $60,000.

Other top spenders include Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) who both spent just under $20,000 on flights for their campaigns.

“We are careful with how we spend our money and we fly commercial as often as possible,” Chris Meagher, the press secretary for Buttigieg’s campaign, told AP on Wednesday. “We only fly noncommercial when the schedule dictates.”

Meagher went on to say that the distance South Bend is from major airports is another reason they’ve had to rely so heavily on chartering a private jet so often.

Wouldn’t someone who is dedicated to a certain set of beliefs and principles do whatever it took to live those principles out, even if it was a major hassle and inconvenience? Seems like that would be the authentic thing to do.

But, then again, if you’re only supporting something like the Green New Deal to appeal to a demographic base of voters, and not out of a passionate belief it’s the right thing to do, guess hypocrisy makes a lot of sense.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Published

on

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

on

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
