If nothing else, you have to give those within President Joe Biden’s regime credit for having the stones large enough to gaslight you right to your face and in front of the entire country, even the people affected directly by what they’re speaking about.

On Thursday, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg — with a straight face (pun very much intended) — said that the federal government had been in East Palestine, Ohio “from the first hours” of the train derailment incident three weeks ago.

“That’s exactly why we’re here,” Buttigieg said in response to a reporter’s question. “That’s why we’ve been here from the first hours of the incident as an administration. And it’s why our interests both in what happened here in East Palestine and in keeping our railroads safe doesn’t go away.”

Oh, well how magnanimous of you to classify what happened and continues to evolve in East Palestine as having your interest.

The brash gall of the sentiment by Biden officials is astronomical, and it seems that regime-wide ego is the only thing they excel at.

Of course, Buttigieg can get away with saying that the regime has been there from the "first hours" since the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was in East Palestine testing the air the first day.

But, for context, Buttigieg is the first member of the Biden Cabinet or White House to visit East Palestine, with former President Donald Trump beating them there by a couple of days. It’s raised questions as to why no one from the Biden regime thought the environmental disaster that followed the burning of toxic chemicals by other entities from the government was a good idea.
