We are at the beginning of a supply chain crisis that is going to make life hard for Americans throughout the country.
Instead of focusing on solving the problem, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg wants to go after Tucker Carlson for taking two months off as this crisis was brewing.
This administration isn’t interested in solving problems, they only care about how it looks.

Buttigieg aims to use Tucker Carlson flap to spotlight paternity leave
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is aiming to use the fierce criticism he faced from conservatives over taking paternity leave as a way to have a conversation about the issue, amid efforts from the White House to get paid family leave into a social spending bill pending in Congress.
“The negativity was unfortunate but, in a way, maybe some good comes out of it too because it’s helped us have a conversation about parental leave,” Buttigieg said this week.
Buttigieg took shots for taking paternity leave during the supply chain crisis from Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who criticized his absence from work.
“Paternity leave, they call it; trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went,” Carlson said during a segment earlier this month…
Carlson’s high-profile criticism drew attention to Buttigeig and the larger issue of paternity leave, something the Transportation secretary went on to discuss during a series of appearances.
Buttigieg should resign.

It must be nice to be a Democrat.
