Republicans fault Buttigieg for time off with newborns. Democrats say he’s showing the need for paid parental leave.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.) also criticized Buttigieg’s leave, tweeting that he was “absent during a transportation crisis that is hurting working-class Americans.” He later doubled down on his criticism of the secretary, telling Watters that Buttigieg “couldn’t organize a one car funeral — he’s not going to organize our ports, railroads, highways, and airports.”
