Earlier on Tuesday, multiple reports emerged suggesting that US President-elect Joe Biden had picked a former Democratic rival, Pete Buttigieg, as his nomination to head the US Transportation Department.

The possible nomination of Joe Biden's former Democratic rival, Pete Buttigieg, to head the US Transportation Department caused waves on Twitter, prompting reactions varying from enthusiasm to sarcasm. 

Reports suggesting that Biden is expected to name Buttigieg as his choice to head the US Transportation Department emerged on Tuesday, but there has been no official confirmation of a nomination.

Anticipating the possibility of the first openly gay member of a presidential cabinet, netizens tweeted opinions on the potential appointment, with many appearing to be delighted about Buttigieg's landing shot.

​For some, the fact that Buttigieg used public transportation during his presidential run turned out to be a factor that, they suggest, could make him a decent transportation secretary.

​Other recalled fun facts about Buttigieg's favourite board games that happen to involve transport.

​Some fantasized on his possible first initiatives as transportation secretary.

​However, not everyone appeared enthusiastic about Buttigieg becoming the first openly gay presidential cabinet member or his love of transport-related board games, stating instead that the former South Bend mayor does not have credible experience in the field in which he would be expected to head.

​Some Netizens recalled reports that Biden was mulling Buttigieg for other high-profile positions, continuing to slam him for lack of qualification.

While Biden's incoming administration is being touted as the "most diverse" in American history, nothing can ever satisfy the requests of absolutely everyone.
