Politicians in general are some of the most fake, phony and pathetic people to walk the planet and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg’s most recent action proves that he is no different.
On Thursday, Buttigieg rode his bike to a Cabinet Meeting in what we now believe to be an environmental photo-op. Buttigieg appeared to be riding his bike to work however hidden camera footage was later released showing his security personnel unloading his bike from a gas guzzling SUV just a block from the White House.
“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg biked to the White House for today’s Cabinet Meeting, it would appear,” reported CNN’s DJ Judd who caught Buttigieg.
Check out what The Blaze reported:
A longer version of the video posted by WFMZ-TV clearly shows security personnel unloading the bike off a bike rack situated on the back of the SUV. After that, the former Democratic presidential candidate mounts the bike and appears to wait until several security agents’ SUVs are ready to escort him. Then he takes off with the vehicles following closely behind.
Buttigieg’s clothing appeared to match what he was seen wearing at the White House meeting, according to a photo posted on President Joe Biden’s Twitter account on Thursday.
The clothing also matched another video claiming to capture the Transportation Secretary leaving the White House after the meeting, once again, on bike. That video was posted by SCOTUS Blog staffer Katie Barlow.

One Twitter user blasted Buttigieg for his “dog and pony show.”
“Use an armored Suburban to bring a bike within a short distance of the destination. Unload it and ride in with a security detail in tow, pretending to save energy,” the commenter said.
