Lauren Boebert: I gave birth in a truck — so therefore no one should get parental leave

In a video posted to her YouTube account, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert took aim at Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who recently announced that he would take two months of paternity leave after adopting newborn twins — a move that Boebert says he shouldn’t do during a supply chain crisis.

“I delivered one of my children in the front seat of my truck. Because as a mom of four, we got things to do,” Boebert in said in the video. 

“Ain’t nobody got time for two and a half months of maternity leave. We have a world to save here,” she said, adding that Americans would “know who to blame” if the supply-chain crisis affected the Christmas holiday.

“The guy in charge of it all, Mayor Pete, was on a two-month maternity, paternity, whatever the heck you want to call it, leave. OK, the guy was gone. The guy was not working,” Boebert said.

“Because why? He was trying to figure out how to chest feed,” she said.
