A week after Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg proposed implementing a mileage tax on working Americans he was caught on camera trying to sell the facade that he truly cares about the environment. Unfortunately for him, this PR stunt won’t work. Buttigieg was caught on camera arriving in an armored suburban a short distance from his destination then unloading a bicycle to ride the rest of the distance with a security detail in tow, pretending to save energy.

Clearly, Buttigieg had no idea anyone would record his sneaky move then he could easily continue to claim he’s simply doing his part to save the environment.
Last week, the Transportation Sec. said that Americans should be charged for their mileage and gas consumption as a way to help pay for President Biden’s multi-trillion infrastructure proposal.
