    SAN JOSE — The Sharks on Friday night reacted with compassion and encouragement to the announcement that general manager Doug Wilson would be taking a temporary medical leave from the team. Wilson, 64, is at his home and with his family in Scottsdale, Arizona. Doctors have prescribed rest for Wilson, who has been dealing with a persistent cough for at least the last two months and has not been sleeping well. Wilson’s condition is not believed to be COVID-19 related. The Sharks made the announcement Friday afternoon before the team played the Toronto Maple Leafs at SAP Center. San Jose lost the game 4-1 in the fourth and final game of their homestand. Sharks captain Logan Couture did not want to take questions about Wilson, instead, leading his postgame news conference with a brief statement, saying that on behalf of the team, “We respect his privacy. We love him and we’re going to miss him. Every guy in that (locker) room owes a lot to him and we hope he gets better and that he’s here soon.”...

    Jason Connolly/Getty Images. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) mocked Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for taking paternity leave during a supply chain crisis, deriding the whole concept of parental leave because she gave birth to a baby in the front seat of her truck. Buttigieg and his husband Chasten Buttigieg welcomed twins in September, a boy and a girl. The former South Bend Mayor was criticized for taking leave; some of it was fair questions about how he was managing the responsibilities of his office, like this mid-October interview with Jake Tapper, and some of it was more along the lines of the mockery from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, who attacked Buttigieg for taking leave to “[try] to figure out how to breastfeed.” Buttigieg had responded to his critics by saying that he and Chasten were bottle-feeding “at all hours of the day and night” and he was “not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of our premature, newborn infant twins.” Boebert apparently remains unimpressed, going after Buttigieg in a “Bullet Points with Lauren Boebert”...
    A Silicon Valley venture capitalist says that men who take six months of paternity leave are ‘losers’ and that ‘in the old days men had babies and worked harder to provide for their future’ which was ‘the correct masculine response.’ Joe Lonsdale weighed into the raging debate sparked by Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s decision to take paternity leave after he and his husband, Chasten, welcomed adopted twins into their family. Buttigieg was criticized for taking paid time off while the country continues to suffer from the effects of a major logjam at ports that has exacerbated the supply chain crisis. Buttigieg, 39, has been on paid leave since mid-August to spend time with his family.  Silicon Valley venture capitalist Joe Lonsdale (left) weighed into the raging debate sparked by Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s (right) decision to take paternity leave after he and his husband, Chasten, welcomed adopted twins into their family Buttigieg, 39, and his husband Chasten, 32, have recently adopted twins, Joseph and Penelope, which they officially announced on September 4.

    Joe Rogan has weighed in on the debate regarding Pete Buttigieg’s paternity leave. “Isn’t that supposed to be for the person who gave birth?” Rogan asked his guest Bridget Phetasy on Tuesday’s edition of his podcast. “Do men take paternity leave?” To answer Rogan’s question, paternity leave, which refers to the leave that is exclusively granted to the fathers, is taken by men but is only mandated in five states — New York, California, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington state, plus Washington, D.C. The topic was brought up while discussing the shipping delays and other issues largely caused by port congestion in California, as Buttigieg is President Joe Biden’s Secretary of Transportation. “It definitely feels like a cluster fuck,” Phetasy said of the port crisis, prompting Rogan to note that people are blaming Buttigieg for taking paternity leave. Phetasy was not convinced that those pointing fingers are Buttigieg were not doing so due to partisan reasons. “But it is kind of crazy,” Rogan said, adding, “It is.” Phetasy went on to hit at Buttigieg and his husband Chasten for taking a...
    Newsmax host Greg Kelly ripped Pete Buttigieg on Monday over the Transportation secretary taking time off following him and his husband welcoming newborn twins. Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, announced in September that they welcomed Penelope Rose Buttigieg and Joseph August Buttigieg to their family. Politico reported last week that Pete Buttigieg has been on paternity leave since mid-August. “They are happy fathers, both of them, right. That’s nice, very nice, but it’s also incredibly strange that Pete Buttigieg, with such a big job Transportation secretary in the middle of a transportation supply chain crisis, would take two months off,” said Kelly. That’s what he did, two months off, all this stuff going on.” “And by the way, he took a good chunk of last year off as well. After he ran for president, he grew a beard. wrote a bunch of books hung around the house and had a grand old time,” he continued. “But now he is a father and he is taking time off. But that’s our time, you and me.” The segment then played clips from MSNBC and The View. This included criticism from MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, who decried what she called “bizarre attacks from the...
    Keiko Hiromi/AFLO via ZUMA Press Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Thursday night on his Fox News broadcast, Tucker Carlson attacked Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for taking parental leave to care for his and his husband Chasten’s infant twins. “Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child,” Carlson ranted. “Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.” There are so many rancid homophobic messages in those three sentences that there is no need to unpack them here. Even conservative stalwart Bill Kristol tweeted, Buttigieg would be entitled to describe Carlson as a “repulsive bigot, and that his response to Carlson is, ‘F___ off.'” But on Sunday morning on CNN’s State of the Union, Buttigieg chose another option when he was asked by host Jake Tapper if he would like to comment on Carlson’s remarks. “As you might imagine,” Buttigieg replied, “we are bottle feeding and doing it at all hours of the day and...
    Pete Buttigieg rebuked conservative criticism over taking parental leave in the midst of a supply chain crisis after adopting twin newborns, as the Transportation secretary claimed paid leave to take care of family is still 'work.' He also admitted that the supply chain traffic jams and delays could last into next year. 'As you might imagine, we're bottle-feeding, and doing it at all hours of the day and night,' Buttigieg explained to CNN's State of the Union on Sunday. 'And I'm not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of my premature newborn infant twins.' Buttigieg is rearing to Carlson dismissing him on Friday after making a joke the day before about him taking parental leave, which the Fox News host sarcastically says was made in 'error.' 'Last night on this show we made a brief, offhand joke about the Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, and this morning we discovered our error,' Carlson said. 'It turns out that Buttigieg is not a dwarfish fraud whose utter mediocrity indicts the class that produced him. No, not...
    Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he would not apologize to anyone for going on paternity leave. Anchor Jake Tapper asked, “This is the first time you have been on the show since you and your husband welcomed twins into your family. You just returned from paternity leave, which Congress is debating right now. Some conservatives have been citing your experience in an effort to mock the very idea of paternity leave. Take a listen.” In a video, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson said, “Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child – paternity leave, they call it – trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.” Tapper asked, “What’s your response?” Buttigieg said, “As you might imagine, we are bottle feeding and doing it at all hours of the day and night. I’m not going to apologize to Tucker Carlson or anyone else for taking care of our premature twins. The work we are doing is joyful, fulfilling, important work...
    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg explicitly called out Fox News star Tucker Carlson on Sunday morning, saying he wasn’t “going to apologize” to the conservative host for taking paternity leave to care for his newborn twins. During his Thursday night broadcast, Carlson mockingly took aim at the Biden administration official for taking time off to care for the two babies that he and his husband Chasten recently adopted. “Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child. Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went,” Carlson sneered. Carlson’s comments sparked immediate backlash, with critics accusing him of homophobia. Furthermore, many noted that Carlson’s criticism of paternity leave stands in stark contrast to Fox News’ own policy, which offers new parents six weeks of paid leave. Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Buttigieg was asked by anchor Jake Tapper to respond to Carlson’s attack on the idea of paternity leave. “As you might imagine, we are bottle feeding and doing it at...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on why he didn’t appoint a subordinate to oversee the department while he was on paternity leave. Buttigieg spoke to Tapper on State of the Union, where he fielded questions about the country’s supply chain crises and the Biden administration’s attempts to get their stalled infrastructure agenda through Congress. At one point in the conversation, Tapper asked Buttigieg to respond to the mockery he has drawn from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and others for taking leave after he and his husband, Chasten, announced the birth of their adopted twins. Transportation Sec. Pete Buttigieg says America need both pieces of spending legislation Democrats are currently debating in Congress.

    GOP lawmakers and others attacked the transportation secretary for taking time off to care for his children after their adoption. Democratic lawmakers are coming to the defense of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who is under attack by Fox News' Tucker Carlson and GOP lawmakers for taking paid parental leave to care of the two newborn infants he adopted with his husband. Carlson mocked Buttigieg, saying at one point on his program Thursday night, "Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed, no word on how that went." Since then, other GOP lawmakers took cues from Carlson to attack Buttigieg, with Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) mocking Buttigieg for taking "maternity leave," Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) calling Buttigieg "absent," and Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) criticizing Buttigieg for taking "2 months off." In September, Buttigieg announced that he and his husband, Chasten, adopted two newborns. "Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing the news that we're becoming parents," Buttigieg tweeted, along with a...
    Fox News offers its own employees six weeks of paid paternity leave. Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for taking paternity leave during the ongoing global shipping crisis. Carlson also made a homophobic comment about Buttigieg's ability to care for his two newborn children. "Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child — paternity leave they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed, no word on how that went," Carlson said on his show Thursday night. As Carlson spoke, the Fox News chyron flipped to read, "Spineless Pete runs off as crisis takes hold."   Buttigieg is the first openly gay Cabinet member in U.S. history. He has been on paternity leave since mid-August to spend time with his family, a Department of Transportation spokesperson told Politico. In September, he and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, announced the birth of their son and daughter. "Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing...
    The White House defended Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Friday for taking off two months of paid paternity leave — even as the national supply chain crisis worsened. White House press secretary Jen Psaki called Buttigieg a role model for taking so much time off after he and Chasten got baby twins. “[P]roud to work in an Administration that is fighting to make paid leave a reality for everyone, and with people like Sec. Pete Buttigieg who are role models on the importance of paid leave for new parents,” she wrote.

    Tucker Carlson has slammed Pete Buttigieg for taking paternity leave during a supply chain crisis as inflation soars in the US. The Fox News mocked the Transport Secretary, who adopted a daughter and a son with his husband Chasten in August, suggesting he was 'trying to figure out how to breastfeed'.  Buttigieg, 39, has been on paid leave since mid-August to spend time with his family.  But since then blockages in ports and a truck driver crisis have caused major issues in the supply chain, leaving shelves empty and causing shipping coasts to soar.  Carlson said: 'As just about every sane person has acknowledged, inflation is rising because the government has devalued the US dollar by making too many US dollars. 'They're like sand now, they're not worth much. But still the White House does not seem concerned. 'Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child – paternity leave, they call it – trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.

    "The only different thing about it is because of your politics today," he asserted, somehow making a link to Trump supporters. Not only did Lemon skip over the tried-and-true status of polio, measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines, he also failed to point out — as have most of the media — that the least vaccinated racial demographic are blacks, whose politics do not match up with those he was tearing into. "The people talking about 'well, I don't know what's in the shot,' Chris," Lemon said, then criticizing the same people for allegedly taking Botox without knowing what's in it, along with not knowing what's in their foods. "Stop it with the ignorance," Lemon insisted. The leftist host insisted that the country no longer needs to listen to these people — because they're bad for "the greater good." "These people are being harmful to the greater good," Lemon claimed. "You don't have to listen to a minority of people who are being harmful to the greater good, and you...
    CNN host Don Lemon called on Americans to shun "stupid" unvaccinated people on Wednesday, saying they should be left behind because they were "harmful to the greater good." During a discussion with fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo at the start of his show, Lemon blasted those choosing not to take the vaccine because they weren't sure about its contents by oddly comparing it to Botox injections and people being unaware of what was in them, but taking them regardless. "I think we have to stop coddling people when it comes to … the vaccines, saying ‘Oh you can’t shame them. You can’t call them stupid.' Yes, they are. The people who aided and abetted Trump are stupid because they believed his big lie," Lemon said, making an unclear comparison between former President Donald Trump and ongoing vaccine hesitancy within some communities. "The people who are not getting vaccines who are believing the lies on the internet instead of science, it's time to start shaming them or leave them behind."

    Prince Albert of Monaco has hit back at rumours of a rift in his marriage - insisting wife Prince Charlene 'didn't leave in a huff' and remains in South Africa only because of 'medical complications' following a 'severe ear, nose and throat infection'. The 63-year-old royal told People that the speculation over the state of his relationship with the former Olympic swimmer, 43, has 'affected' them both, but that he didn't address it early because he 'was concentrating on taking care of the kids'.  Charlene, who wed her prince in 2011 and has two children, six-year-old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, with Albert, has been in her native South Africa for several months after contracting the infection in May. She is not expected to return to her husband's principality until October after experiencing complications related to a sinus lift and bone graft procedure she'd undergone before her trip for dental implants, according to the magazine. The mother-of-two has apparently since had several corrective procedures - including one in late June that resulted in her missing her 10th wedding anniversary on July 1 and a four-hour long operation on August...
    Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell described the tent city housing Afghan refugees she saw during her tour of Holloman Air Force Base, where 14 refugees have tested positive for COVID, people can leave freely at any time and concerns remain about the vetting process. Herrell, whose New Mexico congressional district houses Holloman and part of Fort Bliss, finally was able to tour the base on Tuesday after her request was delayed. She said 2,000 refugees were at Holloman but officials there were expecting up to 5,000 in the next few weeks. And with around 14,000 refugees at Fort Bliss, her district will house around 20,000 refugees, the most in the nation. Herrell wasn't allowed to take photos of the tour but U.S. Northern Command posted some of their social media accounts.

    Academy Bus Lines must pay a former driver $40,000 for firing him because he took a leave to care for his dying father, New Jersey's top law enforcer said Friday. The state Division of Civil Rights found “reasonable suspicion” to suggest the Hoboken-based company intended to “discourage and impede” the driver from taking his legally-entitled time to care for his ailing father in North Carolina, Acting New Jersey Attorney General Andrew J. Bruck said. Academy Lines, which advertises itself as the nation’s largest private transportation company, fired the worker in December 2017 after he began a four-week “intermittent leave” period, the attorney general said. New Jersey law defines intermittent leave as “taken in separate periods of time,” with each leave period spanning at least one work week, Bruck noted. In some instances, the employer may require advance notice and a certification from a health care provider, he added. The December 2017 intermittent leave period was the fourth that the driver had taken to care for his dad, who was diagnosed terminal with leukemia, the attorney general said. The driver supported his...

    Sean Hannity went on a tear Wednesday night against Facebook over the social media giant taking down a new interview of former President Donald Trump. Trump was suspended from Facebook in the wake of the Capitol riots, and CNBC reported a company spokesperson pointed to that as the reason they pulled the video of Trump being interviewed by daughter-in-law Lara Trump. Former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer told Hannity “this censorship is… one of the reasons we are splitting as a society.” “Are conservatives supposed to start all their own conservative media and ban Biden and Obama’s voice?” he asked. “Is that the America Facebook wants? This is going in every possible wrong direction. It’s anti-democratic, anti-intellectual, anti-history.” Hannity read an email Dan Scavino apparently received before commenting, “Now Dan Scavino, who works for President Trump — just ’cause you work for President Trump, you can’t post on Facebook.” “Why is anybody on Facebook anymore that is a conservative?” he asked. “It’s time to leave, we’re not wanted there.” Fox News contributor Joe Concha said he wants to know...
