Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud President Trump’s nomination of Don Willett and James Ho for spots on the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.  They also are cautiously optimistic that this NFL weekend might actually focus on football as three teams announce they will be standing for the national anthem.  And they throw up their hands as a anti-Trump elementary school librarian publicly rejects the donation of Dr. Seuss books from First Lady Melania Trump, while also slamming Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and falsely accusing Dr. Seuss of racism.

    As Jim pointed out, the librarian made a reasonable point about other libraries’ greater need for Melania Trump’s gift.  The speed in which she slides into a moralistic diatribe against Dr. Seuss for not being sufficiently “woke” and against the Trumps for alleged governmental failures shows that politics has become part of her moral core.  Politics is her religion.  She can no more accept a gift from Melania Trump than the Little Sisters of the Poor can pay for contraception and abortion.

    But who cares what she thinks.  She thought Dr. Seuss was more Progressive 2.5 years ago while Obama was president, and everything was wonderful until Betsy DeVos spread desolation through the education system in seven short months.  She also didn’t notice that the book grants were to recognize schools that have “achieved high standards of excellence”.   It is typical of the narrow-minded Leftist thinking that she acts as though there is only one thing Trump should be doing regarding education and a $50 box of books is going to redress any inequities in funding.
