Sen. Tammy Duckworth may be on Bidenâ€™s VP shortlist. But when it comes to childcare during the pandemic, sheâ€™s just as confused as the rest of us.Â â€œSo my choice is five hours of homeschooling every day for my daughter and failing her, because Iâ€™m not a trained educator, or sending her to a school where she could very likely get this virus or bring it home and get her 2-year-old sister sick or my 79-year-old mom, who lives with us,â€� Duckworth tells Molly Jong-Fast and Rick Wilson on the latest episode of The New Abnormal. â€œThatâ€™s the problem: impossible choices.â€�Duckworth also opens up about just how hostile the Senate was to working moms until a hot second ago.
