This was not one of Pete Buttigieg’s finer moments.

The Secretary of Transportation got caught flat-footed.

And Pete Buttigieg flipped out when faced with this truth about the border crisis.

Democrats have no good answers about the crisis at the southern border.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was the latest Biden surrogate to thrash about during an interview when confronted with the fact that President Joe Biden opened the southern border and ignored the devastating consequences until it was no longer politically convenient.

CNBC Squawk Box host Joe Kernen took him to task for Biden only beginning to pay lip service to the border because polls show former President Donald Trump leading in large part due to his massive advantage on the immigration issue.

“That didn’t come until it was clear it was going to become a major campaign issue and only then did the Biden administration get interested in it,” Kernen stated.

Buttigieg tried to claim Republicans were at fault for the wide open southern border because they killed a bill that would have allowed Biden to admit 5,000 illegal aliens per day into America.

Kerner wasn’t having any of it saying the American people could see the border was secure when Trump was President.

“Every time we hear those talking points that suddenly it was Republicans who ruined the border — that’s why people get so frustrated,” Kernen said. “We know what President Biden said about inviting people in. We know that he got rid of the things that were keeping the border closed that President Trump had put in. We know that he got rid of all of those, so when you say it’s not his fault.”

Buttigieg fought back arguing the only policy Biden rolled back was family separation.

“That’s literally not true! It’s literally not true,” Buttigieg shrieked.

“He got rid of the policy to tear children out of the arms of their parents, that’s true, but it is not true some of the other things that have been suggested,” Buttigieg added.

But that’s not true at all.

Biden tried to end all deportations, halted border wall construction, and rescinded the Remain in Mexico Protocols among the more than 90 executive orders he issued about the border.

“This is part of the problem and why there’s a disconnect,” Kernen shot back.

He said the reason polls showed 61 percent of Americans blamed Biden and the Democrats for the border crisis as opposed to 38 percent blaming Trump and the Republicans is because they can see with their own eyes what’s going on.

Kerner challenged Buttigieg saying there weren’t more than 7 million illegal aliens entering the country during Trump’s term.

Voters recognize that as well.

And that’s why polls stand where they are.
