It comes as no surprise that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg would be a target of rightwing conspiracy theorists, considering he's a member of President Joe Biden's Cabinet, gay and smarter than all the insurrectionists put together.
Recently Buttigieg was filmed riding a bike from his office to the White House for a Cabinet meeting. Conservative commentators and MAGA devotees shrieked that an SUV had driven him near the White House, and he'd pedaled the last feeble bit in order to get environmental cred. Buttigieg's green sheen is fake!
The transportation secretary actually did bike the three miles there and three miles back. As Snopes noted, "Buttigieg was not caught staging a bike ride after riding in an SUV. Countless headlines, YouTube video titles, and tweets were misleading and false."
I'm sure the weavers of conspiracies and tall tales aren't discouraged. Perhaps next we'll hear that the gay transportation secretary rides that bike around Washington singing "You can ring my bell, you can ring my bell. Ding, dong, ding, ah-ah, ring it."

No doubt you saw pictures of that golden statue of Donald Trump on display during CPAC last week. The artist claimed the statue was made in Mexico. Now we hear it was made in China.
Baloney. One look at that golden hue and you know it was made at the foot of Mt. Sinai, and enraged the dickens out of Charlton Heston.
