The Secretary of Transportation, 39, was seen arriving at the building on his bike Thursday to attend a Cabinet meeting with Joe Biden. It appeared the politician had cycled in from his office at the Department of Transportation three miles away.
However, footage from WFMZ-TV quickly went viral after it purportedly showed Buttigieg’s security detail unloading the bike from the back of a ‘gas guzzling’ SUV just blocks back from the White House.
The Department of Transportation told The New York Post that Buttigeg ‘rode his bike to the White House cabinet meeting’.
They did not say whether the bike ride began at Buttigieg’s office, which is located in the DOT building three miles away.
However, they did claim that he rode the entirety of the way back.
How many times have you read a story like this? Gay/Trans/Liberal/Minority/whatever goes to a conservative area expecting to find hate and instead finds genuine, caring, loving people? And yet, when a prominent conservative goes to a liberal area, you can almost guarantee that there will be protests and, occasionally, violence. Liberals tend to project their hate and assume that conservatives act the same way they do.
“What you need to realize with Sioux county is there’s a very strong religious flavor there, from their courts to their public squares,” said Ned Bjornstad, a former elected prosecutor in north-west Iowa turned veteran defense attorney who practices regularly in Orange City. “For a candidate like Buttigieg, I’d expect protesters.”
There weren’t any.
What an abhorrent and violent view. By the way… I may be unaware of the current state of political correctness… is a man allowed to have a position on abortion?
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Sunday that governments shouldn’t stand in the way of women who want to seek abortions in the final three months of their pregnancies.
The South Bend, Indiana mayor allowed that women who are six, seven or eight months into their pregnancies have ‘perhaps chosen a name’ or ‘purchased a crib.’
But Fox News Channel moderator Chris Wallace found no flexibility in his pro-choice stand.
‘As horrible as that choice is,’ Buttigieg said, ‘that woman – that family may seek spiritual guidance, they may seek medical guidance – but that decision’s not going to be made any better medically or morally because the government is dictating how that decision should be made.’
