There are 4 comments on What Should Doug Emhoff, America’s Inaugural Second Gentleman, Do with the Role?

  1. Are you serious? We have the first female Vice President and we need to turn our attention back to a man? When has there ever been a discussion about what the Second Lady should be doing with her position?

  2. Advocating for single dads is something he could do. I heard a story of a dad struggling because there are no diaper change stations in a man’s bathroom. It’s time we move on the gender imbalance when raising kids.

  3. I am glad 2nd Gentleman Emhoff is a 1st. When America changes, progress is made for all. Both he and 1st Lady Dr. Biden are needed to place emphasis on education which surely needs uplifting for our teachers and our children. God bless them both and much success in their roles for our nation.
