Meanwhile, China testing nukes and fixing to invade our ally, Taiwan, while arming/funding Taliban, and unleashing bio terrorism. Important work would be putting this behind him and doing his job he was selected for . Gimme an effing break. Geeeeesus really?! And the govt is paying for his leave. No WONDER why SOOOOOO OOOOOOOOO MANY Republican conservatives exist. This bullshit makes it impossible to be respected as a Democrat.

Opinion: Tucker Carlson's insulting attack on Pete ButtigiegTucker Carlson's wasn't alone among right-wing commentators in taunting Pete Buttigieg for his parental leave. These homophobic attacks - and their perpetuation of the toxic idea that taking time to bond with children and care for one's family is something 'only' women should do - amplifies how right Buttigieg is that the US remains pitifully out of step with the rest of the world on this issue, writes Holly Thomas. HolstaT Opinion Men are not required in the early portions of a baby's life. Paternity leave is as useless as the position that this guy holds. HolstaT Opinion Guys been out for like a months and literally did nothing? Is CNN just out of touch with like 99.5% of America or what… HolstaT Opinion There are certain positions with such significant responsibilities that sscrices need to be made. Cabinet Secretary is one of them especially at this moment for transport.
