Former First Lady Michelle Obama found herself in hot-water on Friday, after old photos surfaced on social media showing the First Lady promoting “racist propaganda” to young schoolchildren; sparking outrage from at least one school librarian.
Earlier Friday, First Lady Melania Trump fired-back at a Cambridge, Massachusetts school librarian after the educator rejected a donation of Dr. Seuss books; claiming the material was based on “racist propaganda and stereotypes.”
“To turn the gesture of sending young students some books into something divisive is unfortunate, but the First Lady remains committed to her efforts on behalf of children everywhere,” said a White House spokesperson.
Now, shocking images have appeared on twitter, clearly showing former First Lady Michelle Obama reading excerpts from far-right children’s author Dr. Seuss, including “The Cat in the Hat” and “Oh the Places You’ll Go!”
Users on twitter were quick to point out the blatant double-standard, adding that Dr. Seuss books weren’t considered “racist” until President Trump was sworn into office.
“Huh. I never knew President Obama was so racist,” wrote one user.
