Meshawn Maddock, co-chair of the Michigan Republican Party, labeled Pete Buttigieg, current Transportation Secretary and former officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve, a “weak little girl” on Twitter Sunday.

Sad that this is what plays well in the GOP today…

Via Detroit News:

Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend and a 2020 Democratic candidate for president, and his husband, Chasten, recently moved to the Traverse City area, where Chasten is originally from.

On Sunday afternoon, she shared a tweet from the Republican National Committee that featured video of Buttigieg talking about California’s plan to ban new gas-powered vehicle sales by 2035 and saying the country needs to “move in the direction of electric vehicles.”

“We’re so blessed this weak little girl moved to Michigan,” Maddock wrote in her tweet about the video. “Looks like he’s bringing all his California Dreaming here with him.”

Mind you, Maddock made the remark about a military veteran on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Whatever happened to class?

Back in January, CNN reported that Maddock is being investigated for her part  as a fake Michigan elector after the 2020 presidential election.

Lavora Barnes, chairwoman of the Michigan Democratic Party, told Detroit News the state party will use the remark to fundraise and then added, “But I am not responding to homophobic crazy.”

Twitter was less than impressed:
