Democratic Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg made history in 2020 as the first openly gay Democratic presidential candidate, and in 2021 as the first openly gay presidential Cabinet member.
Now he seems poised to make history again in a whole new way—by being promoted to the newly created position of Secretary of Thirst Traps after shirtless photos of him sent the internet into a horny tizzy.
Someone hit up Costco and buy some water in bulk, because the internet has been left parched by the Secretary.
It all began when Pete's husband Chasten Buttigieg snapped some photos of the Secretary this past weekend after a 60-mile bike ride in the heat and humidity of Washington DC, which had been enduring a heat wave earlier this month. Buttigieg had peeled his shirt off in the heat, revealing a very jacked physique underneath.
Thankfully for the thirsty internet, Chasten was game to upload his very buff and very sweaty husband to his Instagram story. They pretty much immediately went viral, because the internet's horniness should never be underestimated.
On Twitter, the thirst was real.
Thank you for this valuable public service, Secretary Buttigieg.
