Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg clashed with Rep.

“Sadly, he shakes hands with ghosts and imaginary people, he falls off bicycles — even at the White House Easter celebration the Easter Bunny had to guide him back into his safe place,” Nehls said as aides held up various photos of Biden. “First of all, I’m glad to have a president who can ride a bicycle,” Buttigieg replied.

Nehls last appeared on JMG when he claimed, without evidence, that Capitol police had “illegally” entered his office and photographed his paperwork.
