Librarian explains why she rejected books donated by Melania Trump

Via CBS News.

The Dr. Suess books were rejected by a librarian at the Cambridgeport Elementray School Library in response to President Trump's selection of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education among other factors. What's your opinion on the rejection of the gift?

UPDATE: FLOTUS office fires back a reply to the rejection of the Dr. Suess books: via FoxNews (what else?)

'To turn the gesture of sending young students some books into something divisive is unfortunate.' - FLOTUS


This is a major Banned Books Week fail. Right during BBW, news break of a school librarian calling Dr Seuss books racist, bragging about her vaulted training, then telling Melania Trump to screw off. The librarian becomes literally a national joke, an international laughing stock. She even has pictures displayed with her all decked out in a Cat In the Hat costume. Total joke. Right during Banned Books Week. School teacher bans Dr. Seuss for being racist and coming from FLOTUS right during Banned Books Week.

And how do we know this is a major Banned Books Week fail? Because no one at ALA is saying word one about this international joke. Absolute silence. Just like the homophobic actions of OIF are kept in silence.
