Mayor Of East Palestine Meets Up With Rudy Giuliani, Makes Biden Official Wait Outside Door


East Palestine’s Mayor Trent Conaway took a meeting with Rudy Giuliani and by doing so he made Biden’s Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg wait in the hallway.

The move by Mayor Conaway is quite strategic and here’s why.

First off Buttigieg’s job is to just virtual signal and spew the Biden administration’s talking points whereas someone like Giuliani who was the mayor of New York City during 9/11.

So Giuliani can offer real advice and wisdom regarding the recent tragedy in East Palestine unlike Buttigieg.

Take a look at the meeting here:

The Daily Mail dropped these details:

Pete Buttigieg had to wait his turn behind Rudy Giuliani to speak with East Palestine’s Mayor Trent Conaway on Thursday after putting off for 20 days a visit to the Ohio village thrown into chaos after a toxic train derailment earlier this month.

While Giuliani spoke with Mayor Conaway on Thursday, Transportation Secretary Buttigieg waited in the hall for at least 30 minutes.

Buttigieg’s staff was careful, making sure that there were no run-ins between the secretary and Giuliani, a person present for the meeting told

Speaking mayor to former mayor, Conaway said he isn’t focused on partisanship and is only interested in ensuring the safety of his constituents who have felt ignored by the Biden administration in the aftermath of a train crash in their small town.

News Max got the scoop too:

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg waited 20 days to visit the wreckage of this month’s Ohio train derailment and toxic fallout, and he reportedly was left waiting 30 minutes more Thursday.

Buttigieg was in East Palestine, Ohio; but town Mayor Trent Conaway was meeting with former President Donald Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, leaving the transportation secretary waiting in the hall, the Daily Mail reported.

Conaway, appearing with Giuliani, told reporters that anybody was welcome in his town “as long as they’re going to help our community,” adding “no matter whether they’re a Democrat or Republican.”
