Mayor of South Bend, Indiana and 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is facing scrutiny from members of his town as he travels the country campaigning.
“Because of Pete’s selfishness, in my opinion, he is still the mayor,” Derek Dieter, former South Bend Common Council president told Washington Free Beacon.
Dieter called for Buttigieg’s resignation from his mayoral position.
“To me, it doesn’t make sense,” he said. “If you’re running for president, that’s a lot of pressure, you got to be on the road. Everything that happens in South Bend shouldn’t be on your mind. You should be concentrating on running for president. So, I’m adamant that he should resign as mayor.”
Over the weekend, a black man was killed by a white police officer, stirring tensions in the city. Buttigieg returned to South Bend, where angry citizens confronted him at a town hall meeting, shouting him down. When he attempted to join a Black Lives Matter protest, he was again the subject of scorn from protestors.
Meanwhile, the town’s Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) is also unhappy with the mayor.
The FOP released a statement that accused Buttigieg of “solely vying for political gain,” and said that his statements in the wake of the shooting “already have and will continue to have detrimental effects on the city’s officers.” The group accused him of focusing solely on one racially charged shooting, while ignoring two others that recently occurred in the town.
Buttigieg has not taken much heat on the national stage. He has taken over the role of upstart Democratic Party primary candidate, which many thought would belong to former Texas State Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke.
Despite being gay, he has been criticized in some progressive circles for being a white male, and thus not “diverse” enough to be the Democratic Party’s nominee.

Joe Rogan Endorses Donald Trump Over Joe Biden, Citing Cognitive Decline
Rogan was previously a Bernie Sanders supporter.
Podcaster Joe Rogan appeared to implicitly endorse Donald Trump for President during his Saturday podcast with Eric Weinstein. Rogan cited what he identified as Biden’s obvious cognitive decline in refusing to vote for the Democratic Party’s elder statesman.
“This is the real issue with the Democratic Party… They’ve essentially made us all morons with that Joe Biden guy. I can’t vote for him. I’d rather vote for Trump than him.”
“We don’t even know what the f*** he’s going to be like after a year in office.”
Rogan has consistently sounded the alarm on the question of Joe Biden’s mental acuity, frequently pointing to the Democratic frontrunner’s many instances of confusion and questionable awareness during his extremely limited schedule of media and campaign events.
Joe Biden has forgotten what office he’s running for in a campaign event in South Carolina, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence within the past two decades.
Establishment Democrats were quick to jump out of the woodwork in condemning Rogan, pointing to him as a toxic Bernie Sanders bro dangerously refusing to obey the imperative to ‘vote blue’ with the sole objective of defeating Donald Trump.
Rogan had previously endorsed Bernie Sanders. It appears probable that he’s the most prominent Sanders-to-Trump voter in America, considering his podcast is consistently the most viewed example of the content format. Mainstream Democrats had consistently written him off as some sort of fringe figure, disregarding that he’s by all accounts one of the most influential public speakers in America.
Up to 15% of Bernie Sanders supporters are currently planning on eschewing the low-energy Biden campaign and voting for Donald Trump in the November general election. Unfortunately for establishment Democrats keen to demand strict obedience of any nominally progressive voter, they’ll have to right to vote for a candidate of their choosing as American citizens.
