    Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal announced a hiring freeze ahead of Elon Musk's $44billion takeover, while two members of the social media giant's top brass have been asked to leave. Agrawal, 37, announced that Twitter will not be hiring new employees for the time being and may take back offers already out to prospective hires, according to an internal memo. On Thursday, head of consumer product Kayvon Beykpour announced he would be leaving the company, saying Agrawal 'asked me to leave after letting me know that he wants to take the team in a different direction.' Beykpour had been on paternity leave for some time. He had been with the company for seven years.  Interim GM of consumer product Jay Sullivan will replace him. He will be followed out the door by Bruce Falck, Twitter's general manager for revenue.  As of Monday, Parag Agrawal (pictured) has been promoted from his four-year-long role as Twitter's chief technology officer to the $11billion company's CEO - a move that was effective immediately after co-founder Jack Dorsey, 45, stepped down via email, which he later...
    Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger called Tucker Carlson a 'manipulative son of a b***h' and talked about how he hunkered down in his office with his gun during the January 6 Capitol attack, in a new interview with Rolling Stone.  Kinzinger, who will retire from the House at the end of his term, went after Carlson over the Fox News Channel host's rant about Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg taking parental leave, during a supply chain crisis, after he and his husband Chasten adopted newborn premature twins.  'And Tucker Carlson took nothing but a cheap shot at him because it was a temporary hit of Pixy Stix or a shot of heroin, it makes people feel great, they stay on. The rage works. And he created rage,' the Illinois Republican observed. 'Talking about Pete Buttigieg learning how to breastfeed  - like, c'mon man.' Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger sat down for an interview with S.E. Cupp for Rolling Stone, telling her he thought Tucker Carlson was a 'manipulative son of a b***h' for his attack on Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg  Carlson mocked Buttigieg,...

She called Republican Senators Susan Collins from Maine and Shelley Moore Capito from West Virginia - and both said they were shocked that Meghan called out of the blue. They also noted that she used her royal title to lobby the cause. Senator Collins said: "I was happy to talk with her, but I'm more interested in what people from Maine are telling me about paid leave." This comes as furious republicans have told Meghan Markle to “stick to acting” following her “politically motivated” letter to...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki clashed with Newsmax correspondent Emerald Robinson Tuesday over Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s paid paternity leave. Politico’s West Wing Playbook reported last week that the Transportation Secretary had been on paternity leave for the past few weeks to spend time with his husband Chasten and their newborn children. Newsmax’s Emerald Robinson asked Psaki during the briefing, “Given the seriousness of the supply chain crisis and the multiple issues that you outlined, wouldn’t it be wise for the Secretary to get back on the bicycle, so to speak, and come back to work?” “He’s at work,” Psaki responded. “He’s on paternity leave,” Robinson said. “I was on a conference call with him this morning,” Psaki remarked. “He’s in the department now every day?” Robinson asked. Psaki proceeded to defend paternity and maternity leave and said, “We’re not going to back away from that.” “We are quite confident in the capabilities of the civil servants, the leadership at the Department of Transportation, just as we are at companies across the country, where women, men take maternity and paternity...
    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...
    "For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated," a Transportation Department spokesman told the outlet. “He has been ramping up activities since then." Hot Air's Ed Morrissey pointed out that this was a strange move for someone in a Cabinet post. "Since when have Cabinet secretaries taken months off at a time for parental leave?" Morrissey asked. "Since now, apparently, even when crises brew within their portfolio. After all, Cabinet officials do not formally fall under the federal family leave system, and for good reason. Those positions are considered too critical for the operation of government to mandate such lengthy absences." Politico noted that historically Cabinet secretaries have worked to come back sooner. For example, the outlet noted, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro was off for about a week after his child was born. The reason Buttigieg's leave stands out as unusual is because, as Morrissey noted, Cabinet secretaries are not eligible for federal paid family leave benefits. According to the Office of...
    The hosts of The View went off on Tucker Carlson for mocking Pete Buttigieg’s paternity leave, calling him an “equal opportunity bigot.” On Friday, Joy Behar noted that Buttigieg has been receiving criticism for taking time off to care for his newborn twins, adding, that the Secretary of Transportation is “finding out firsthand how hard it is to be a working parent in America.” The host then played a clip of Carlson hitting at Buttigieg for taking paternity leave, during which he says, “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.” After the clip, Sara Haines slammed Carlson for managing to mock “everyone equally” through his remarks — prompting Sunny Hostin to crack that he is an “equal opportunity bigot.” “Maybe he doesn’t know about breast-feeding because he came out of a robot,” added Ana Navarro, earning laughter from the audience. “That could explain his lack of heart.” Guest host Sherri Shepherd went on to point to the benefits of Buttigieg’s leave,...
    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been on paternity leave since mid-August – with his time off coming amid the Biden administration's efforts to quell the supply chain crunch and the ongoing infrastructure debate on Capitol Hill to move forward with President Biden's agenda. Buttigieg's office told Politico Playbook this week that he has been off since mid-August to spend time with his husband, Chasten, as they welcomed two newborn babies.  "For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated," a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation told Politico Playbook this week. "He has been ramping up activities since then."  The spokesperson said that as he slowly gets back to the grind, Buttigieg will "continue to take some time over the coming weeks to support his husband and take care of his new children."  Buttigieg's time off comes as the Biden administration grapples with supply chain bottlenecks and amid efforts to ease shipping backlogs.

    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. 'But now he's back in office as the Transportation Secretary...
    Tucker Carlson took a potshot at Pete Buttigieg on Thursday night, mocking the Secretary of Transportation’s paternity leave. Buttigieg, who is gay and married, announced last month he and his husband had become parents. Chasten and I are beyond thankful for all the kind wishes since first sharing the news that we’re becoming parents. We are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg to our family. pic.twitter.com/kS89gb11Ax — Pete Buttigieg (@PeteButtigieg) September 4, 2021 During a rant on inflation and transportation infrastructure, the Fox News host 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.” Carlson was promptly ridiculed on Twitter.

Manager Alex Cora announced that Chris Sale has completed his rehab stint and will start against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

The Mets’ closer was placed on the paternity list before Wednesday’s game against the Marlins, giving him up to three days away from the team. Diaz, according to manager Luis Rojas, returned to New York. Jake Reed was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to fill a slot in the bullpen. The right-hander was claimed off waivers this week from the Rays. The Mets’ options to fill the closer’s role until Diaz’s return include Trevor May, Jeurys Familia and Aaron Loup. May got the call on Wednesday night and finished off the 5-3 win with a perfect ninth, striking out two. Rojas said he expected to speak with Diaz in the next day to determine if rejoining the team for Friday’s game in Philadelphia will be a possibility. Edwin...
