In an interview on The Breakfast Club podcast, Treasury Secretary Pete Buttigieg seemed a little stunned when Charlamagne tha God told him that many Black Americans feel that Dems haven’t kept their promises.
From the clip:
Charlamagne: You do realize, Pete, a lot of Black people feel Democrats have kept no promises since they’ve been been in office.
Charlamagne: Yes. Reverend Al has said that a million times.
Buttigieg: Look, I get it.
Have a watch:

Now, based on his history as mayor of South Bend, we KNOW that he knows that Black Americans are saying this about Dems but he’s in total damage control mode for the administration instead of being honest:
he was mayor of south bend and this still surprises him? Lol https://t.co/7cJZhlCEHa

We’d like to point out that Charlamagne is a big Buttigieg fan, too. From 2019:
"The Breakfast Club" co-host Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) says Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg "looks good for the spotlight," adding that no matter the outcome, he's "gonna have a bright future in politics" https://t.co/aO3O2if9wC pic.twitter.com/OHmMH0xBbu

And he supported Buttigieg after Kamala Harris dropped out in December 2019:

Exit question: Is the spin from today’s interview “blowing smile up the Black community’s a**” or not?
Charlamagne Tha God says presidential candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg “is not just blowing smile up the Black community’s ass”… that is good to know! pic.twitter.com/3KAa06r658
