That's why the US has a presidential line of succession. That way 18 out of 19 can go maternity/paternity leave at the same time, and there will still be a president!

I feel like if you're the head of an agency during a national crisis you need to be all hands on deck.

I also think people giving him grief for taking paternity leave are being unfair. Have you tried raising a newborn? Six weeks to figure your life out goes by in an eye blink.

  ....Well, the line I always get is how much sacrifice is involved in public service.  He was not recovering from giving birth.  He has a partner who was not recovering either, so...it makes sense the partner could do the day to day and this guy could I dont know...maybe address the crisis?   I am completely missing the sacrifice and what I see is a dude not doing a job he is probably being paid well for (looked it up...221k a year, and this fucker has missed 2 months of that year, though i am sure he will be paid in full). 

   This is so very much a "let them eat cake" look that it is beyond the point of smoothing it over from an optics point of view.
You really have a problem with maternity/paternity leave?

  Yes.  When one parent is 100 percent available time wise and the other is in charge of a department facing a national crisis...damn right I am.   

  I have had 2 kids.  My wife took leave to recover and see to the infant needs the first couple months, while I went back to work the next day.  I see NO REASON why a dude with such a heavy NATIONAL responsibility could not do the exact same thing.
What responsibilities? I'm sure the transportation department is organized so it can keep on running without anyone at the top, so the only real job a transportation secretary has is to serve as the face, and maybe to slightly the lead given by Congress and the President.

  Well, that motherfucker is collecting 221k a year in salary.   So If its as you say, and a nothing job, he can get nothing pay, and take all the paternity leave he wants.
The job has benefits in addition to a salary. Maternity/paternity leave is one of those benefits. Are you suggesting he shouldn't have that benefit because he's male?
  I am suggesting NO ONE with a cabinet position, which means a job that often lasts 2 years, and usually max 4 years, should have that benefit, at that salary.    Now as I said, if he would like to sacrifice in public service and do that job for free, he can have all the paternity leave he wants.

  edited to add: but I do feel if you DID NOT recover physically from child birth I do not understand the missing work for 2 months with pay when you have an able body at home to take care of the kid.   Now if the boss says it is a perk of the job...well the thing is, this is a job paid by tax payers, not the noble lords and ladies of DC.  I think if you are going to serve the tax payers, your ass better function in some way similar to what most tax payers do regarding your work/life.  Not like a lord or lady.
Physical recovery isn't the primary purpose of the leave at all. The primary point is bonding with the new addition to the family. Sorry if you don't like the idea that such benefits exist for all federal positions. Having a job that provides such leave is hardly living "like a lord or lady."

   You know damn well what I am talking about.  I am talking about that guy, in that position, during a crisis, being AWOL from his job.   If not, sorry you are a simpering shithead who can not see or understand the obvious.
He's not AWOL you dumb fuck. He clearly has approved leave. Are you such a shithead that you can't understand the obvious?

Don't make the mistake of assuming that all that felt that Trump was a barely sentient circus peanut voted for Biden.

That feeling you get when you realise the barely sentient circus peanut was the good choice.

I can't answer foe that in a general sense, just in the specific case of Butters and his paternity leave.

I'm no fan of Biden, but there's quite a difference between what someone has said and what you think someone might say.

I'd think Biden's long record of opposing gay marriage would be a bigger issue to a gay man than a joke about paternity leave, but I guess they bribed him real good.

And 221K is a pittance compared to the legal/not legal access/information/nepotism/retirement jobs that turns everyone in senior government positions into multi deca millionaires.

I thought the real secret was to put your money in the Nancy Pelosi Retirement fund.

I hear the returns are spectacular!
