‘Boo Hoo’: Buttigieg’s Life Partner Complains that He’s Responsible for His College Debt

Poor Chasten Glezman. Despite his life partner, Sec. of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, only pulling in $221,400 a year, their high-end DC apartment doesn’t have a den. Life can be cruel.

Now Glezman has received the heartbreaking news that the Federal Government will cease and desist paying off his college loans. Again… life can be cruel.

I guess his part-time gig as a drama teacher (of course) isn’t quite the money-maker he may have hoped it would be.

Keep in mind, Buttigieg and Klezman also jointly own a home in high-priced Traverse City, Michigan. Let’s not forget those nifty book deals, either.

But thankfully, some on the Right are swinging back.

As reported by Jessica Chasmar of Fox News (emphasis mine);

The husband of U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg appears less than enthusiastic about having to repay his student loans.

Chasten Buttigieg, who recently became a father to newborn twins with the transportation secretary, posted a screenshot on Instagram Saturday of a notification that his student loan relief from the COVID-19 pandemic will expire on January 31, 2022.

“Chasten, your student loan payments restart after January 31, 2022,” the notice read, according to a screenshot tweeted by Politico’s Michael Stratford. “You’ll soon receive a bill from your student loan servicer.”

“LOL no thank you Merry Christmas next,” Chasten captioned the post.

“These are the guys who complained that they couldn’t afford rent in DC on Pete’s $220K salary (and all their money from writing books),” Republican strategist Matt Whitlock commented. “A good reminder that the left’s ‘cancel student loan debt’ goal would overwhelmingly help financially comfortable people.”

Chasten faced ridicule in July after he complained about rent prices in Washington, D.C., claiming he and his husband “couldn’t afford” anything bigger than a one-bedroom apartment.

The transportation secretary’s salary is $221,400 and Chasten is a part-time drama school teacher. In addition to their D.C. apartment, the couple owns a home on Lake Michigan in Traverse City, which they purchased this year after selling their home in South Bend, The Washington Post reported at the time.

Perhaps the best retort came from Abigail Marone, press secretary for Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo);
