Sadly (and I'm not joking), I doubt Tucker's upbringing left him with much of an understanding of the importance of parenting.  I mean, really?  Being role models for children?  Surely all that money we pay the boarding school must include that sort of thing.

clever...
 
2021-10-18 1:34:40 PM  
This is a good headline.

Dunking on Tucker isn't really a challenge, though.

I feel bad for his children* if Tucker thinks that all parenting is is learning to breastfeed.

As congress debates the idea of paternity leave, he adds that it's work that "every American ought to be able to do as they welcome a new child into their family... we're pretty much the only country left that doesn't have some kind of national policy for paid (family) leave... It is long past time to make it possible for every American mother and father to take care of their children when a new child arrives."

That's the bigger story here.  Fark Carlson and rat-boy's private little feud.

It would not surprise me to learn that he felt that child rearing was "woman's work". It's probably why he felt so comfortable around Trump, what with Donny having had a completely negligent father too.

You might feel bad for the child if the man didn't deserve every bit of that contempt and neglect.

LOL You have no f*cking clue. He has a whole army of people under him and the work is getting done. No one is missing his short absence at the office.

any administration good enough to pick buttigieg is good enough to pick someone to fill in for him for 3 months while hes on leave.  he'll be back soon and can continue his work.

if your work is the most important thing in your life it says a lot of sad things about your life.  that goes for everyone, whether you're president or CEO or pushing carts at the supermarket.

Actually, russia has some of the most generous parental leave benefits in the world (though it's only for the mother):

http://expatica.com/ru/healthcare/wome​ns-health/having-a-baby-in-russia-1077​04/#Parental-Russia

140 days - 70 before and 70 after delivery.

During the 140-day period, women receive 100% of their wages.

How do you feel being worse than Russia?

I took paid leave for both my children, and i'm male, one was state paid (as im in California) the other was a combination of state and my employer.  I must say both times was really helpful to focus on my son and daughter, as my wife was stressing the first time around.  Anyone who doesn't get why the dad would also want to be home either has no kids or an is an idiot.

i think the real story here is that Tucker doesn't know how to feed a baby.  i bet he isn't even aware that there are women who simply can't or babies who won't.

Oh, and with the literal exception of POTUS and astronauts, there is no job which shouldn't be able to withstand its holder taking a few weeks of parental leave. Especially if they can put aside a few hours a day for answering emails to resolve things that require their decision-making powers.
 
2021-10-18 2:17:20 PM  
It's not maternity leave when a man does it.

Try to keep up with The Century, eh?

For the record, it's not paternity leave either. It's parental leave. Parents. That's the word for fiscal conservatives who sell out to the Liberal Man for a mess of paid leave as if they were cops or white racists.

Oh, get real RW. Everybody knows that children are not important and anything related to non-profit child care is a sinkhole and money pit, you just don't say it out loud.

Also, everybody knows that the job of an elected pubic "servant" is not important except to the place-holder.

If he was president he would delegate it to someone, most likely the VP.

In most organizations there are plenty of people you can delegate work to. You cannot replace the bonding time of parent to child and replacing that with a nanny bonding with your child is a crap option. Piss off.

The fact that Congress is debating whether paid paternity leave is ACTUALLY A THING is disgusting.  Most advanced countries have it, and Congress isn't debating how much they should consider, but rather whether they consider it at all.

The fact that the US government doesn't even mandate any maternity leave is also gross.  Sure, some states have it, but that shouldn't be up to the states.

Again, every single other OECD country has it.

On hiring a Nanny.

Not a good idea if you are a Democrat.

Only Republicans may hire illegals or dance on the graves of mass terrorism, murders and democracy.

Also, where are all the Nannies gone since Trump started yapping for a wall?

No illegals, no cheap slave labour for the political classes.
