Chasten Buttigieg snipes about Joe Biden making him repay his student loans

U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s husband sparked social media mockery when he openly complained about repaying student loans.

Chasten Buttigieg shared a screenshot of a notification on his student loan on Sunday and was quickly reminded by many Twitter users that paying back what you borrowed is actually how it’s supposed to work.

Millions of student loan payments are set to resume in January as the moratorium that was first implemented in March 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic will be expiring. Many are advocating for President Joe Biden to extend the pause on payments.

Chasten Buttigieg, along with husband Pete – a former mayor who is now enjoying a $221,400 salary as part of Biden’s Cabinet – recently adopted twin babies. He set off a wave of mockery earlier this summer after complaining about rent prices in Washington, D.C., and how the family “couldn’t afford” anything larger than a one-bedroom apartment.

In his Instagram story on Sunday, Buttigieg posted the image of a message about his student loan which read, “Chasten, your student loan payments restart after January 31, 2022.”

“You’ll soon receive a bill from your student loan servicer,” the note read, as seen in a screenshot of Buttigieg’s post tweeted by Politico’s Michael Stratford.

“LOL no thank you Merry Christmas next,” Chasten Buttigieg’s caption read.

“Chasten doesn’t appear to be a fan of the Biden admin’s plan to restart student loan payments next month,” Stratford noted in his tweet.
