Pete Buttigieg wasn’t going to let Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s remarks on his marriage slide. 

At a rally in Georgia, Greene made remarks on Buttigieg’s marriage with his husband, Chasten, according to The Hill.

“You know what? Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycles, and he and his husband can stay out of our girls’ bathrooms,” Greene said, who was there in support of former Sen. David Perdue who is running for governor of Georgia.

Buttigieg, the U.S. transportation secretary, said her comments were “nonsensical.”

“The reason you hear somebody like that making nonsensical, literally nonsensical comments like that — I don’t know what you’d do with an electric vehicle in any bathroom — they don’t want to talk about what we’re actually working on,” Buttigieg said during an appearance on Yahoo! News’ “Skullduggery” podcast.

“So they’re going to keep tripling down on anything that can divide and demonize and demoralize, and through that capture attention,” he added.

This happened before Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that bans classroom discussions on gender identity and sexual orientation in K-3, dubbed as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Buttigieg told Yahoo! News that the law is “hurting kids.”

“I think about what life might be like for our kids when they start school. If they were in a place like Florida, it might stop them from mentioning they had a great time over the weekend with their dads,” he said.
