Clarice Feldmann has another insightful, fun … column this morning.
In it she artfully takes the Democrats apart, particularly the front-running Dem candidates as well as the failed “House Impeachment Managers”. She’s very hard on Crazy Bernie and Sleepy Joe.
Clarice, however, overlooks our favorite Democrat candidate for the nomination (we change day to day with passing fancy. We hope that Iowa Dem voters will be kinder. Who could possibly be more fun than Liz (“Ah think ah’ll have me a beer“) Warren?
On this we are on the same page, so to speak, as the Des Moines Register. And, what fun President Trump would have campaigning with “Princess Wahoo” as his opponent! DLH
GOP Needs for Warren to be the Dem Nominee
If the 2020 presidential campaign is to be any fun at all, “Native American Princess Wahoo” (El Jefe, Liz Warren) has got to be the Democrat nominee.
How could the Democratic Party voters reject a candidate who is determined to seek the best possible advice on who should fill key positions in her Cabinet?
The Daily Caller recounts Elizabeth Warren’s commitment to her supporters that, if elected U S president, she will tap the expertise of the finest minds she knows to help her in selecting her Cabinet. The online source, “Pink”, reports approvingly, on the story as well. See below. DLH
From the article by Mary Margaret Olohan at the Daily Caller:
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she would have a transgender child interview the next secretary of education.
The Massachusetts senator spoke Sunday at a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where a voter told her that children are not learning enough about LGBTQhistory or sexual education in public schools. Warren told the voter that she would require a transgender child to interview a future secretary of education nominee.
“I have two qualifications that I have talked about over and over for my secretary of education,” Warren said. “The first, it has to be someone who has taught in a public school.” (RELATED: Warren And Biden Support Taxpayer-Funded Transgender Surgery)
Warren added that because it was a young trans person who had asked her about a “welcoming community,” she will also require that young trans person to interview the future education secretary.
“I’m gonna have a secretary of education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf,” Warren said. “And only if this person believes that our secretary of education nominee is someone who is committed to creating a welcoming environment, a safe environment, and a full educational curriculum for everyone, will that person actually be advanced to be secretary of education.”
Honest, folks. We didn’t make this up. Who could? (dlh)
From the UK’s “Pink News” Elizabeth Warren: Trans kid will sign off on education secretary pick
Elizabeth Warren has vowed to get help from a nine-year-old transgender boy in picking her secretary of education.
The Democratic presidential hopeful told supporters in Iowa that she would ask Jacob, a nine-year-old transgender boy who she met at an LGBT+ event, to vet her picks for the cabinet role.
Elizabeth Warren: Trans kid will sign off on education secretary pick
Speaking at an event in Cedar Rapids this week, she said: “For my secretary of education, number one it has to be someone who has taught in a public school.
“Number two, a young trans person asked [me] about a welcoming community… I’m going to have a secretary of education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf, and only if this person believes that our secretary or education nominee is absolutely committed to creating a welcoming environment, a safe environment, and a full educational curriculum for everyone will that person actually be advanced to be secretary of education.”
Donald Trump’s education secretary Betsy DeVos, who has never taught in a public school, has stripped nearly all of the civil rights protections for transgender children that were enforced under the Obama administration, and ceased all investigations of discrimination complaints from trans kids.
The question came from Jacob, who appeared at the CNN equality town hall in October, asking Warren: “What will you do in your first week as president to make sure that kids like me feel safer in schools? And what do you think schools need to do better to make sure that I don’t need to worry about anything but my homework?”
Boy ‘can speak for so many kids’
Jacob’s mother, Mimi Lemay, later spoke to Out about her pride at seeing her son “so poised and ready to advocate for himself.”
She said: “He has struggled with his own identity, with coming out to us and to himself,” she said. “He struggled to find his voice. Now that he has found it, and he can speak for so many kids.
“As a parent, that’s all I want for my child. The evening was so powerful for our whole family and I don’t think we’ll ever forget it.”
Jacob began expressing his gender identity from a very early age. At two and a half, he became increasingly morose and despondent, before telling his parents there had been a “mistake.”
“I am not a girl, I am a boy,” he said.
When she was invited to ask a question at the event, Lemay opted to let Jacob decide what to ask. To her surprise, he said he wanted to be the one to ask it.
