Amazon releases Pete Buttigieg documentary trailer as his paternity leave, supply chain crisis explodes

Amazon Prime released another trailer Major Pete, a documentary about Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg (D)’s failed drive in the White House. The trailer comes amid controversy over the Biden administration’s official taking paid paternity leave since mid-August as the United States faces a massive supply chain crisis.

The documentary describes his rise from a mayor of Indiana to a failed Democratic presidential candidate to an official in the Biden administration. Buttigieg’s relationship with her husband Chasten and the navigation in their relationship seem to be a central theme in the film.

“You spent so much of your life hiding who you really were. Did you feel like you were capable of being your true self on the campaign trail, ”his husband Chasten tells Pete at the beginning of the trailer. “I made Pete promise we would have fun.”

The preview jumps over to Buttigieg, speaking to a crowd of supporters and telling them, “This is the only chance you ever get to vote for a Maltese American, left-handed, episcopal, gay war veteran mayor and millennium.”

The film is rated R.

The documentary has gone through the winger, as critics remain largely disillusioned.

A review from The cover described it as “frustrating” as the film contained “surprisingly little about Buttigieg himself.”

“His story, his political work, his family outside of husband Chasten? Like the man himself, the nuanced details of his biography often remain out of reach, “the reviewer noted, adding that a documentary” should not require an additional visit to a subject’s Wikipedia page to fill in gaps.

“A Pete Buttigieg documentary is, on one level or another, a step backwards for director Jesse Moss,” said review site Indie Wire, adds, “If the stakes are exponentially higher in ‘Mayor Pete’ – you would never know it by watching the film’s unbeatable namesake as he explodes on the national stage and challenges heavyweights like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.”

The trailer comes as Buttigieg’s absence during the country’s crisis in the supply chain. Last week it was revealed which Buttigieg had been on paid maternity leave since mid-August after he and Chasten adopted twins, earning him the title “role model” from Biden White House.

Buttigieg has since defended his paternity leave and has predicted that the issues in the supply chain “continue into next year.”
