“if [Rubio’s] I have time to fight against Disney, I don’t know why he wouldn’t have time to help protect marriages like mine – look, this is really really important to a lot of people. It’s definitely important to me,” Buttigieg told CNN reporter Jake Tapper on State of the Union.
The visibly emotional Buttigieg described spending breakfast on Sunday morning with his twin children so that his husband, Chasten, would have time to rest, telling Tapper, “It’s no small feat, as every parent of young children knows.”
“If they don’t want to spend a lot of time on this, they can vote ‘yes,’ and go ahead, and that would be really reassuring for many families across America, including mine,” Buttigieg told Tapper.
Buttigieg also discussed the administration’s efforts to pass a reconciliation bill targeting social programs, and declined to blame West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin.

He pledged that his agency “is working with our executive powers to hold airlines accountable,” after a series of airline cancellations that have left travelers scrambling over the past few months over weather and staff concerns.
“We will keep pushing [airlines] And of course, prepare to work collaboratively whenever there is an opportunity to do things that will facilitate operations in our national airspace,” Buttigieg said. It is a good thing that Americans have the income and the desire to return to the skies, the demand is so high after two years of delayed flights. Now that that demand is back, airlines need to be prepared to service those tickets that collect the proceeds from their sale.”
