U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is getting roasted on social media after his husband complained about rent prices in Washington, D.C., claiming they couldn’t afford anything bigger than a one-bedroom apartment.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten Buttigieg, said their new Eastern Market digs are a far cry from the price of living in their old city of South Bend, Indiana, where Pete served as mayor from 2012 to 2020.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We couldn’t afford the one-bedroom-plus-den,” Chasten said. Instead, they’re renting an 800-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment, sans den, in a high-security building, where the rent for one-bedrooms now starts at $4,500 per month, The Post reported, adding that the rent is higher since the Buttigieges signed a lease last winter.

The report notes that Buttigieg is pulling in a salary is $221,400, while Chasten, a former middle school drama teacher, is currently unemployed.

The pair also purchased a home on Lake Michigan in Traverse City this year after selling their South Bend home.

One Twitter user shared a video, proving there are many options for less than $4,500 per month:

Abigail Marone, press secretary for Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) mocked Buttigieg, tweeting, “Imagine being so far removed from the real world that you complain about your $4,500/mo apartment not having a den.”

“Americans are struggling to afford basic necessities thanks to #bidenflation but poor Pete & Chasten don’t get a den in their high-end building. Boo hoo.”

“Buttigieg makes well over $200K, spends $4,500 on rent, and him & Chasten are complaining that the city is unaffordable? How is this not an Onion article,” she added.

“My roommate and I have a 2 bed/2 bath + den in the middle of the city and our rent costs nowhere near $4500 a month,” tweeted CBS News reporter Kathryn Watson.

Republican communicator Matt Whitlock tweeted, “It should concern everyone that a top administration official working on $5T government spending plans can’t figure out how to survive in Washington on $220K/year.”

Whitlock added, “Not only is Pete’s salary $220K, he and Chasten made a TON on books and podcast deals. Making over $500K/ year and complaining to the Post about DC (median income about $50K) being too expensive (while pushing policy to make it more expensive) is a LOOK.”
