Oh, wait. . .
The supply chain crisis *wasn’t* solved yet? Our bad:
There’s a parking lot of goods off the coast of California as far as the eye can see and the Transportation Secretary is tackling….paternity leave. https://t.co/HIC4akVigf

Maybe he should go back to focusing on, you know, his job?
Buttigieg moves on from Ports and Transportation. https://t.co/RgJCB5RQeB

Fact check: TRUE:
This guy will do literally anything other than his job. https://t.co/vkAvnDvT4B

It’s his “shield”:
I have nothing against paternity leave (I support it!) but this loser needs to do his job and not use that as a shield. https://t.co/OlGrpsysN6

And, by the way, we’re not necessarily against paternity leave. As we told you before, this was a bill TRUMP signed into law. The issue is CABINET SECRETARIES are not regular employees and should never be treated as such:
What if the issue isn't paternity leave, but it's appointing a mayor to run $4 trillion in infrastructure during a supply chain crisis https://t.co/YSR3Se0TgV

Yep. This is how it is for many jobs:
Of course he does, because that's NOT THE ISSUE.
The issue is his dereliction of duty.
He's not in a position to take that much time off-site, given the job he has.
I'm a doctor and I allowed myself a week off after I personally had the baby (!!)–because Responsibilities. https://t.co/FyRyHx7QR4

Exit question: If he wanted to shine a light on paternity leave, why didn’t he announce it ahead of time?
He aims to shine a spotlight on paternity leave, which he concealed that he was taking for two months. https://t.co/dnV5X1O3u1
