IT BEGINS: CBS Hypes A Potential 2028 Buttigieg Presidential Run

If you thought that the effort to make Pete Buttigieg into a thing has waned or diminished in light of his tenure as Secretary of Transportation, think again. CBS Sunday Morning leveraged a treacly Father’s Day profile of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and husband Chasten into an infomercial hyping a 2028 presidential run. 

Watch the end of the interview, as correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti asks the presidential question, and elicits an emotional response from Buttigieg:

JONATHAN VIGLIOTTI: Is there a world where you see Penelope and Gus living in The White House in 2029?

PETE BUTTIGIEG: I don’t know about that. That’s just not how I’m thinking about even the near future.


BUTTIGIEG: No. If anything, having kids that little makes you think more than anything about the really long-term future. Past when I’m even around.

VIGLIOTTI: A political wonder kid steps into fatherhood and embraces the unscripted. 

When you went on your first date with Chasten, did you ever imagine you would be here today in this place in your life?

BUTTIGIEG: Part of what’s amazing about falling in love and getting married is that you’re in it for the journey, that you don’t know where it’s going to take you. But I can’t imagine I could have asked for anything better. Not that it hasn’t been hard, but if you asked me that summer night nine years ago, told me what was going to happen and this, it would have seemed greedy to even hope to have all of that nine years later.

You may be inclined to think, Dear Reader, that this interview was a stand-up Father’s Day item. But the left corrupts the institutions it conquers and refashions them to suit its purposes.

This interview is really a slick example of Pride Month propaganda, minus all the festooning with rainbow flags.

The interview opened with pancakes on the griddle, an intimate view into the Buttigieg home, just three gay dudes vibing about who plays good cop and bad cop with the kids. Vigliotti covers the family’s move to Michigan, their early dating, and the presidential run. 

From there the interview goes into the adoption process and into exaggerated puffing up of Buttigieg’s tenure as Transportation Secretary, leading viewers to infer the construction of a private railway between Las Vegas and Los Angeles as an accomplishment of his own. It is then that the interview winds down at the Department of Transportation, and with Buttigieg’s emotional nonanswer on 2028.

The 2024 presidential campaign is in full swing but CBS, with its gross campaign infomercial, is enabling 2028 ambitions. Expect more of this as we get deeper into the cycle.
