Pete Buttigieg was recently seen taking a bicycle from an armored Suburban and riding it to his destination for a very short distance to look “environmentally friendly.”
Twitter user Tim Xeriland posted the video Thursday evening, though it is unclear who filmed it. He captioned it as “Pete Buttigieg’s dog and pony show.”
The person who filmed it can be heard commenting on what he’s seeing. “Got a bike in his suit. Riding away. I didn’t know he’d ride it in his suit,” he said.
In light of all this, some wise words from @AHelleneAuthor:
Buttigieg was previously the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and a presidential candidate for the Democratic Party in 2020. He now serves in the Biden administration as Secretary of Transportation.
In his Senate confirmation hearing back in January, Buttigieg said that union workers working on the Keystone XL pipeline simply needed to find new jobs:
Imagine being told to ‘learn to code-‘ in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and an economic recession.
Biden’s Department of Transportation nominee, Pete Buttigieg, did almost exactly that in Senate confirmation proceedings on Thursday, flatly stating that union workers employed in the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline need to get different jobs. President Biden terminated construction approval for the pipeline on his first day in office.
Senator Ted Cruz questioned Buttigieg about the administration’s plans for workers promptly swept out of a job.
“The answer is that we’re very eager to see those workers continue to be employed in good paying union jobs, even if they might be different ones.”
