With the President fully pushing to reopen schools, and with an out-of-sorts Fox News desperate to win back Trump’s approval, the network has gone full f**k your kids over the last couple of days in trying to advance the President’s reckless agenda. The network has come up with some clever arguments, too, like: Suggesting that remote learning is how teachers groom children for sexual predators.

As Hannah pointed out, this has as much to do with sh*tting on teacher unions as it does reopening schools, but yes: Fox News, in primetime, suggested that teachers were “sexualizing children and training them in anti-American ideology” in cahoots with Black Lives Matter and the CDC. “This is child abuse.”
Meanwhile, a Fox News host is bashing Dr. Fauci “for a simple reason. He has put our children last.”

Yes, Dr. Fauci — by discouraging schools from reopening before it’s safe to do so — is putting children last. Meanwhile, thirty-one percent (31 percent) of all children who have tested in Florida have come back positive. Thirty one percent. It sounds like Ron DeSantis is putting children last to me.

Sending kids back to school would lead to 1000s of additinal preventable deaths. More blood on Republican hands. https://t.co/BBS7ep8ylA
McEnany: "The president has said unmistakably that he wants schools to open…When he says open, he means open and full, kids being able to attend each and every day at their school. The science should not stand in the way of this." https://t.co/Nj065CIsxp pic.twitter.com/sJEAJPg2Jy— CBS News (@CBSNews) July 16, 2020
Time and again with these people, they refuse to listen, until they are personally affected by it. Take Chuck Woolery, for instance. Remember last week when Trump retweeted a tweet from the former game show host saying that the Coronavirus was a hoax? He changed his mind today. Wonder why?
Chuck Woolery is an imbecile. He said everyone was lying about COVID-19, and then 24 hours later his son tested positive for COVID-19. Now he has deactivated his account to avoid being mocked.— Christopher Bouzy (@cbouzy) July 16, 2020
Before deleting his account, Woolery tweeted, “To further clarify and add perspective, Covid-19 is real and it is here. My son tested positive for the virus, and I feel for of those suffering and especially for those who have lost loved ones.”
It is real, Chuck, and millions more children will be infected with it if Trump and Fox News have their way.
Indeed. https://t.co/uzySOXsTEO— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) July 16, 2020
