If you thought the NFL’s war with President Trump would be the dumbest thing liberals did this week, you’d be wrong. An elementary school librarian in Massachusettes publicly spurned a book donation made by Melania Trump. The reason? Dr. Seuss is racist.
Ding! We have a winner! The most obnoxious liberal of the week has been found.
Cambridgeport Elementary School librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro published an insulting letter addressed to the first lady.
“My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science,” Phipps Soeiro wrote.
So what? If her school has nine thousand books, it should be her job to procure nine thousand more. Anyone who wants to give books to children should be praised, not denigrated.
“You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature. As First Lady of the United States, you have an incredible platform with world-class resources at your fingertips,” the crazy complaint continues.
It gets worse. She goes on to explain that Dr. Seuss isn’t just passe, but racist. I don’t know if the fact that she dressed up as Cat in the Hat and hosted a green eggs and ham breakfast two years ago makes her rant better or worse.
Melania, as usual, behaved with consummate class.
“She has demonstrated this in both actions and words since her husband took office, and sending books to children across the country is but one example,” the first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.
“To turn the gesture of sending young students some books into something divisive is unfortunate.”
