Melania Trump is an easy target for the left and the mainstream media for a number of reasons. Well, she is beautiful and married to the most powerful man on the planet.
How else can you explain why a school librarian from Massachusetts would turn down books donated by FLOTUS?
The White House chose one elementary school from each state and donated 10 Dr. Suess books their way.
Melanie in her notebook wrote:
“As I was thinking about your return to school, I wanted to send you a special gift. Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go! is a book my son and I have read over and over again, and one that we want to share with all of you.”
The librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro refused to accept the books and wrote letter back wondering why the White House wasn’t sending books to “underfunded and underprivileged communities that continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos?”
So, Melanie responded with this classy statement:
FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP FIRED BACK FRIDAY AT A MASSACHUSETTS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIBRARIAN WHO REJECTED HER DONATION OF DR. SEUSS BOOKS, CLAIMING THEIR ILLUSTRATIONS ARE EXAMPLES OF “RACIST PROPAGANDA.”
STEPHANIE GRISHAM, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS FOR THE FIRST LADY’S OFFICE, SAID IN A STATEMENT TO FOX NEWS THAT THE RESPONSE WAS “UNFORTUNATE,” AND MRS. TRUMP WANTED TO USE HER PLATFORM “TO HELP AS MANY CHILDREN AS SHE CAN.”
“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,” SHE SAID. “TO TURN THE GESTURE OF SENDING YOUNG STUDENTS SOME BOOKS INTO SOMETHING DIVISIVE IS UNFORTUNATE, BUT THE FIRST LADY REMAINS COMMITTED TO HER EFFORTS ON BEHALF OF CHILDREN EVERYWHERE.”
TO CELEBRATE “NATIONAL READ A BOOK DAY,” THE FIRST LADY HAD SENT OUT A COLLECTION OF 10 DR. SEUSS BOOKS TO ONE SCHOOL IN EACH STATE ACROSS THE NATION. THE TITLES INCLUDED: “THE CAT IN THE HAT”; “ONE FISH, TWO FISH, RED FISH, BLUE FISH”; “WACKY WEDNESDAY”; “GREEN EGGS AND HAM”; AND “OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!”
SHE FOLLOWED IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF HER PREDECESSOR, MICHELLE OBAMA, WHO OFTEN READ DR. SEUSS BOOKS TO CHILDREN. FORMER FIRST LADIES HILLARY CLINTON AND BARBARA BUSH ALSO READ TO CHILDREN AT DR. SEUSS-THEMED EDUCATIONAL EVENTS.
“I WANTED TO SEND YOU A SPECIAL GIFT. DR. SEUSS’S OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO! IS A BOOK MY SON AND I HAVE READ OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND ONE THAT WE WANT TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU,” THE FIRST LADY WROTE IN HER LETTER TO STUDENTS. “PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE THE FUTURE OF AMERICA AND THAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO.”
And, look what came out about the profesor:
