Buttigieg Mocked After Video Emerges of His Bike Being Unloaded From SUV Ahead of Ride

In March, Buttigieg claimed that the White House may consider introducing a vehicle mileage tax to help cover the costs of the Biden administration’s $2.2 trillion infrastructure package.

Netizens have mocked US Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg after a video surfaced on Twitter to show his security staff unloading his bike from an SUV, apparently ahead of a White House meeting.

The footage then shows a pair of SUVs shadowing Buttigieg as he cycles to his intended destination.

“Caught in the act”, conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza tweeted, commenting on what other netizens described as theatrics or just plain hypocrisy.
