   “I’m not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of my premature newborn infant twins. We’re pretty much the only country that doesn’t have some kind of national policy on paid leave. I think it is down to us and Papua New Guinea. It is long past time to make it possible for every mother and father to take care of the children when a new child arrives in the family.”

Pete Buttigieg, Secretary of Transportation

A couple of weeks ago, I became aware of Tuckums (MSNBC news anchor Joy Reid’s nickname} mocking Pete Buttigieg for taking paternity leave. Carlson made an LGBTQ-hating snide remark wondering if Pete and his husband Chastain were successful in breastfeeding their children.

One of my favorite new MSNBC news anchors Jonathan Capehart who is out had to check Tuckums on his perspective on Carlson’s comment.

Mr. Capehart stated. “Tucker Carlson, The Grand Dragon of FOX News Prime Time deviated from his usual flogging White replacement theory to go after Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. Secretary Pete and his husband Chastain adopted twins back in August. That Buttigieg took paternity leave to care for his premature babies really bugged Carlson. Carlson, the real-life embodiment of the smug and entitled Shane Patton in HBO’s ‘The White Lotus’ works for a company that offers 6 weeks of paternity leave to its employees. Even FOX host Jessie Waters proclaimed himself ‘pro paternity’ after the birth of his 3rd child back in April.

  That line about ‘trying to figure out how to breastfeed’ is all kinds of homophobic. But I am hardly surprised Carlson would say such a thing. Growing up gay, it was always the toxic insecure Carlson types who were quick to question my masculinity, or even my humanity if I appear to stray from their cramped view of what it means to be a man or seemed to be not like them in some way.

Carlson’s contemptuous remark is especially ridiculously laughable even when you consider the observation from Joy Behar of The View. She said ‘Pete Buttigieg served 6 years in the Naval Reserve and was deployed in Afghanistan. Tucker Carlson was booted off Dancing With The Stars after he couldn’t do the cha-cha.’

My editorial point, What a loser! With the arrival of Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg, the world has 2 new people who will be raised by parents that value. They live by kindness. hard work, service, sacrifice, empathy, integrity, resilience, gratitude. Values that Carlson doesn’t possess or knows anything about.”

It should come as no surprise that FOX entertainer Tucker Carlson resorted to such zanyism. When it gets close to election season, Midterm or Presidential modern dayTrump worshipping GOPs always try to use the LGBTQ+ populace as a wedge issue to strengthen their base’s deranged disdain for us.

Log Cabin Republicans are mostly complacent and yellow belly cowards when it comes to dealing with the Heterosexual brethren. Thankfully millions of LGBTQ+ refuse to et these hookers us. We continue to live and fight for our lives/equality. Quoting Noxzeema Jackson from the movie ‘Too Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar’, “Approval neither required, nor desired.”
