Scholastic Publishes Book About President Trump, Immediately Get Slammed

Published

on

Scholastic, a publishing company that pumps out books for kids of all ages, has come under fire by critics for publishing a book about President Trump for first and second grade readers.

Apparently, critics are ticked off because the book, according to them, “reads like promotional campaign material targeted at children.” One has to wonder if this same criticism existed for books aimed at kids about former President Barack Obama.

Scholastic published the book by Joanne Mattern in 2017.

On Wednesday, ThinkProgress published an article on the biographical book titled, “Scholastic’s pro-Trump propaganda for kids enrages teachers and parents.”

Casey Quinlan, the article’s author, cited a book review from Social Justice Books, which stated, “[“President Donald Trump”] is anything but neutral. The book outlines Trump’s personal and professional life with a celebratory tone. It omits facts, glosses over context, and ignores opposing perspectives.”

An excerpt from the book itself reads:

His buildings reached into the sky.
His businesses just grew and grew.
Then Trump became our president—
People wanted something new.

The Social Justice Books review, written by Kathleen Nganga and Sarah Cornelius, said the main problem with the book is with “extensive omissions that undermine a truthful, nuanced, and informative account” and “construct a false narrative.”

While the bias seems obvious at this point, wait until you see what these people said next. The hypocrisy will leap right out at you.

“Scrubbing away any trace of complexity or nuance from an account about an elected official stunts the quintessential democratic freedom and responsibility of questioning and critiquing those in positions of power,” they continued.

Remember when conservative leaning media attempted to portray an accurate, balanced account of Obama and were deemed racists for it? Now all of a sudden the left is making calls for a “fair and balanced” approach that doesn’t scrub the dirty bits, when it conveniently suits their narrative?

Really?

Who doesn’t support a full, nuanced, and balanced reporting of the facts involving political figures? That’s a great idea, one that most likely every conservative in the country could get behind. However, the left will not apply those standards evenly or fairly, which makes having objectivity and balance extremely hard to do.

The worst part of modern day progressivism is the hypocrisy, the lack of “practice what you preach” being applied to the average, day-to-day business of life.

Hillary Clinton Feeling the ‘Urge’ to Run for POTUS, & Defeat President Trump In November

Trump would welcome it…

Why is Hollywood and the media still so in love with Hillary Clinton? Sure, okay, Clinton went from first lady of Arkansas to first lady of the United States to senator to secretary of state to presidential nominee. From that standpoint, she has lived a pretty amazing life. But that’s not why celebrities and the MSM cares for her. They just have a sick obsession for anybody who hates Trump. After all of Clinton’s lies and deception, you’d think they’d finally move on. But no. From The Hill: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a recent interview that she feels “the urge” to beat President Trump in the coming election, and pledged to everything she can to “help elect the Democratic nominee” this year. Clinton’s comments came in response to a question she was asked in an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival, where her docu-series “Hillary” is appearing. During the interview, which was published on Tuesday, a reporter asked Clinton if she ever feels “the urge to think: ‘I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.’” Clinton bellowed, “Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome.” She screeched, “And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/ArchieBunker19/status/1222221464226750469?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222221464226750469&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222228028845182977?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222228028845182977&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222223088684818432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222223088684818432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F On James Corden’s late night program, the former First Lady ripped into the president’s personal attorney like she got paid to do it.

Millions of Dollars From Joe Biden’s 2008 Campaign Went Directly to His Sister’s Consulting Firm

Seems like Biden helped out a number of family members financially…

It would seem that Joe Biden used his power as vice president to make many people in his family very, very wealthy. That is what malfeasance and true corruption really looks like, in case Democrats were still wondering. Imagine if Donald Trump Jr. was put on the board of a foreign gas company and made millions. Picture Ivanka Trump funneling money from her father’s campaign to her own clothing line. Would the media care then? Would their ears prick up? Here’s the latest on Joe, via Breitbart: Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of former vice president Joe Biden (D), who served as the campaign manager for his past presidential campaigns, directed $2.5 million from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.” to her own consulting firm during her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone, Breitbart senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer’s investigative blockbuster Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite reveals. Biden’s political tenure, as Schweizer’s book extensively details, has largely remained a complicated family affair, resulting in little-known financial benefits for not just his son Hunter Biden, but for his sister Valerie. Biden must not realize that the internet is forever. He doesn’t understand that words he has said on camera years ago will come back to haunt him. Recently, Joe pretty much owned himself when he was caught in a pretty damning lie. His smug attitude didn’t help matters, either. The problem here is that most of America will never see this story unless President Trump gives it a retweet. After all, Joe has the MSM in his back pocket, as does every liberal in America. From Fox News: DUBUQUE, Iowa — Joe Biden is the only 2020 presidential candidate who was in the White House Situation Room as Navy SEALs…
