Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has been caught pulling a green energy stunt attempting to stage a photo op of him riding a bike to the White House for work.
The video was captured by CNN’s White House correspondent DJ Judd, showing Buttigieg exiting an armored SUV, while security personnel remove the bike from the rack attached to the rear of the vehicle (he couldn’t even unload his own bike). Buttigieg then gets on the bike and two SUVs follow closely behind.

A longer video posted by a local Washington News station shows security personal aiding Buttigieg for the photo op, and a SCOTUS blog reporter caught him leaving the complex.

Buttigieg was headed to the White House to attend Biden’t first Cabinet meeting at the White House. The President used the meeting to push his $2.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill that some conservatives claim is the Green New Deal in disguise.
This isn’t the first time Buttigieg has been under the microscope since becoming Transportation Secretary. Last month, Mayor Pete floated a vehicle mileage tax to help pay for the costs of Biden’s plan. The announcement was met with fierce backlash from both sides of the aisle and it forced him to go on CNN and walk back his comments.
Buttigieg claimed that the mileage tax is “not part of the conversation about this infrastructure bill.”
The Transportation Secretaries photo op stunt is just another example of how green energy policies are not about saving the planet but controlling the population. If Mayor Pete really believed in green energy he wouldn’t be riding in two SUV’s to work everyday.
