“I’m going to have a Secretary of Education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf.”
Elizabeth Warren is taking ‘woke’ politics in education to a whole new level. During an event on Thursday, she said that as president, her secretary of education would have to be approved by a transgender child she presumably met on the campaign trail.
Could she be doing this out of sheer desperation, now that she has sunk to fourth place in Iowa?
Sam Dorman reports at FOX News:
Warren says she wants ‘young trans person’ to interview, approve her Education Secretary pick
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., vowed over the weekend that she would allow a “young trans person” to interview her choice for Secretary of Education, potentially granting them veto power over a key Cabinet official.
During a campaign event in Iowa Sunday, Warren said “a young trans person [had] asked about a welcoming community and I said, ‘It starts with the Secretary of Education, who has a lot to do with where we spend our money’ … and I said, ‘I’m going to have a Secretary of Education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf,'”
She added that “only if this person believes that our Secretary of Education nominee is committed to creating a welcoming environment, a safe environment, and a full educational curriculum for everyone, will that person be advanced to actually be Secretary of Education.”
It’s unclear who exactly Warren was referring to but a 9-year-old who identifies as transgender previously asked Warren what she would do in her “first week as president to make sure kids like me feel safer in school.” The child then asked, “And what do you think schools should do better so that I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework?”

Is it safe to assume President Warren’s energy secretary will be vetted and chosen by Greta Thunberg? Will David Hogg choose our secretary of defense?
This may sound good to progressive Democratic primary voters, but it won’t play to the public in a general election.

Is Elizabeth Warren real or have right-wing minds simply conjured her from existing materials like a woke golem https://t.co/3XRsunWZru
