'Everything Is Politicized': School Librarian Rejects Dr. Seuss Books From FLOTUS
Liz Phipps Soeiro, a librarian at a public school in Cambridge, wrote a letter to Trump, informing her that her school would not be keeping the books for their collection. She explained that her school didn’t have a “NEED” for the books and that Dr. Seuss' illustrations are steeped in "racist propaganda, caricatures and harmful stereotypes."
Stephanie Grisham, director of communications for the first lady's office, said in a statement that it's "unfortunate" to turn the gesture of sending young students books into something divisive.
Rachel Campos-Duffy said on "America's Newsroom" that this is another example of how everything is politicized these days.
"It's a warning to parents that parenting is not a spectator sport anymore," she said. "They're not just trying to indoctrinate our children in colleges. They're doing it at the elementary level."
She said she's been reading Dr. Seuss to her children for years, and it's news to her that his work is "racist."
"We need to actually stop this silliness. It's gotten to the point of insanity," she said.
