Pete Buttigieg is like the James Bond of Fox News interviews. He strolls into a room full of SPECTRE agents posing a Fox News employees and calmly wipes them all out without so much as breaking a sweat.
“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg faced down a Fox News host who complained about peaceful protests against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over abortion rights.
During an interview on Fox News, host Mike Emmanuel asked Buttigieg if it was “appropriate” for demonstrators to protest outside a restaurant where Kavanaugh was dining.
Buttigieg acknowledged that public officials “should always be free from violence.”
“You’re never going to be free from criticism or peaceful protests, people exercising their First Amendment rights,” the Transporation secretary pointed out.“
It was a thing of beauty:

“That’s happened in this case,” he explained. “Remember, the justice never even came into contact with these protesters, 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,” Buttigieg continued, “but this justice was part of the process of stripping away the right to privacy. Since I’ve been alive, settled case law in the United States has been that the Constitution protected the right to privacy and that has now been thrown out the window by 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. So yes, people are upset. They’re going to exercise their First Amendment rights.”
Too bad Pete already has a job, Biden could really use him as White House Comms Director or Press Secretary.
Nobody lays it down like Pete does…
Pete Buttigieg is amazing. That's the tweet.
