Buttigieg Fires Back at Paternity Leave Attack: ‘I’m Not Going to Apologize to Tucker Carlson’
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg explicitly called out Fox News star Tucker Carlson on Sunday morning, saying he wasn’t “going to apologize” to the conservative host for taking paternity leave to care for his newborn twins.
During his Thursday night broadcast, Carlson mockingly took aim at the Biden administration official for taking time off to care for the two babies that he and his husband Chasten recently adopted.
“Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child. Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went,” Carlson sneered.
