During an appearance on Fox News this Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was asked about recent comments from Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who said that Buttigieg’s is trying to “emasculate the way we drive” with his endorsement of electric vehicles.
Speaking to Fox host Neil Cavuto, Buttigieg said he had no idea what Greene’s comments were supposed to mean.
“My sense of manhood is not connected to whether my vehicle is fueled by gasoline or whether it’s fueled by electricity,” Buttigieg said before Cavuto asked if he was offended by Greene’s remarks.
“It was a strange thing to say,” Buttigieg continued. “To be honest, there are other members of Congress who I pay more attention to when I’m thinking about opinions that really matter or ideas that are going to be critical to engage with.”
