Tucker Carlson's Homophobic Remarks on Pete Buttigieg's Paternity Leave

Tucker Carlson went on a homophobic rant about Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on his Fox News show last week. Tucker criticized Buttigieg for taking time off from his job after adopting twin children with his husband Chasten. Carlson said in his monologue, “Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child. Paternity leave as they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed, no word on how that went.” This is some low brow-bigotry from Carlson and an attempt to feminize Pete Buttigieg because he’s gay. Surely most of Tucker’s audience must love the commentary but one would think that even Fox News by this point would have moved beyond allowing that sort of rhetoric on its airwaves. The Transportation Secretary went on CNN’s State of the Union to respond to the attack by the Fox host and said he’s “not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of [his] premature newborn infant twins.” Indeed it’s Tucker who should be apologizing for making such a statement but such an apology is unlikely going to be coming anytime soon.
