JUST IN: PELOSI -- Calls on Attorney General Sessions to Resign pic.twitter.com/vKBTkRWxqQ— Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) March 2, 2017
Nancy Pelosi is calling for the head of A.G. Jeff Sessions, about whom it has been shown definitively that he lied under oath regarding his contact — which did happen — with Russian officials.
The U.S. is quickly becoming to Russia as Taiwan is to China, and these people sold us out for money and power.
In light of reports that Trump, at Attorney General Jeff Sessions's urging and with the allegedly reluctant approval of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will roll back President Obama's executive order stating that trans kids should be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice in schools, NEA President Lily Eskelsen García has issued the following statement:
Every student matters, and every student has the right to feel safe, welcomed, and valued in our public schools. This is our legal, ethical and moral obligation. The Trump administration’s plans to reverse protections for transgender students by rescinding the Title IX guidance, is dangerous, ill-advised, and unnecessary.
We reject this discriminatory plan because it is a drastic departure from our core values. We don’t teach hate, we do not tell people how to pray, and we do not discriminate against people based on their religion, gender, or identity. Period.
As the Trump administration threatens our students and our values, we will double-down on our efforts to protect our most vulnerable citizens, including our LGBTQ students and members. We urge more states, school districts, and schools to adopt protections for transgender students. We owe to our students because they need to see us take a bold stand against discrimination whatever form it takes.
Via The New York Times: Trump's anti-trans order (he will rescind school protections for trans students) is coming — and it's only happening because he and Jeff Sessions insisted that Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos sign off on it.
Somewhat surprisingly, ultra-religious DeVos was reportedly uncomfortable with the aggressive stripping of such recently bestowed rights, but Sessions insisted and persuaded Trump, meaning DeVos would either have to resign or cave.
Gee, I wonder how the family of Jackie Evancho feels now that she sang the natinoal anthem at his inauguration and he's waited all of a few weeks before removing this progress for trans kids?
Zeta-Jones is so, so terrible in this trailer, but I guess I'll have to watch Feud. Full trailer ABOVE. NEW SARANDON Q&A: Let's stop blaming people for Trump?!
