New York City Education Dept. Sponsors Drag Queen PBS Series for Kids Ages 3 to 8

The New York City Department of Education is taking heat after some noticed that it had been sponsoring a drag queen video series aimed at 3 to 8-year-old children.

Entitled, “Let’s Learn,” the video series features a drag queen going by the name “Lil Miss Hot Mess.” The drag queen, whose birth name is Harris David Harris, is a media personality from San Francisco, California, and bills himself as one of the first drag queens to host a reading hour for kids.

“I am a drag queen and a children’s book author, and you may be wondering to yourself: ‘What on earth is a drag queen?'” Harris says on one of the videos before going on to define what he does, The Blaze reported.

As Lil Miss Hot Mess, Harris continues saying, “everyday people who like to play pretend and dress up as often as we can,” and added these people “are leaders in our community, and if you ask me: we make pretty good role models.”

At one point, Harris excitedly tells his audience, “I think we might have some drag queens in training on our hands.”

Harris goes on to read from his book, “The Hips On the Drag Queen Go Swish Swish Swish,” which is performed to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round.”

“I wrote this book because I wanted everyone to get to experience the magic of drag and to get a little practice shaking their hips or shimmying their shoulders to know how we can feel fabulous inside of our own bodies,” Harris explained.

The video series was hosted by the Dept. of Ed in partnership with PBS member station WNET-TV. But the PBS outlet insists that they just aired it and have had nothing to do with the actual production of the series.

Various schools and city-sponsored libraries have been featuring drag queen story hours for little children since at least as far back as 2008. The stunts have riled parents in cities across America in states including Alabama, California, Georgia, Texas, New York, and many others.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
