When Pete Buttigieg accepted the position of Joe Biden’s Transportation Secretary, little did he know what he was signing up for.

No, we’re not talking about the job. We’re talking about the rent:

Oh, the humanity!

Really inspires confidence in Pete Buttigieg, doesn’t it?

Welp.

According to the Washington Post’s article, Chasten Buttigieg is currently unemployed.

One-bedroom apartments in D.C. may not be super-cheap, but if you can’t find one for under $4500 a month, chances are pretty good that you’re doing something wrong.

It certainly is a LOOK. And not a good one.

You can always count on @dril to have a tweet somewhere that fits the situation.

Just like you can always count on the Washington Post to run interference for a Democrat:

Wow, the price of rent can change a lot over the weekend!

The moral of the story:
