A double-masked Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was filmed riding his bike in Washington, D.C., Thursday with a gas-guzzling security SUV following close behind.
The Joe Biden appointee, who has made battling “climate change” and systemic racism centerpieces of the Department of Transportation agenda, was filmed by CNN reporter DJ Judd biking to the White House for the Cabinet meeting:

While Buttigieg’s face is never visible — thanks in part to him sporting two masks while outside — the video begins with his bike being unloaded from a security vehicle. An agent, who at one point speaks into his lapel, secures the bike rack on the rear of the SUV.
Buttigieg eventually mounted the bike and the SUV followed close behind.
