Reports surfaced this week outlining the horrors the pandemic has taken on our children.
Lower testing scores, mental health issues, social development, etc.
So, the administration fell back on a tried but true narrative… blame it on Trump.
The Bad Orange Man
Republicans never wanted schools to close, period.
That is a fact.
It was Democrats that allowed teachers’ unions to make policy and not only pushed to close schools, but they also allowed the unions to keep the schools closed.
Democrats were so livid with Trump for wanting to open schools, they even took out an ad against him on this…

Yet, when Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about the damage done to children due to prolonged school closing, this was her answer…

To this date, there has never been a meaningful impact of COVID on younger children.
Studies from overseas backed this up when it was time for kids to go to school, but they remained closed because of Democrats, not Trump, not his administration, and not because of Republicans.
As a matter of fact, when Governor Ron DeSantis reopened his schools in Florida, he was sued by the teachers’ union in December 2020.
The reporter that asked the initial question should have been armed with these facts before she opened her mouth instead of allowing KJP to spew her lies and rhetoric.
