Warren Says Potential Cabinet Member Will Need To Be Vetted By A Transgender

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren told a crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa that her future Education Secretary would have to be vetted by a nine-year-old transgender.

During the rally earlier this week, Warren was asked if she was elected president, how she would make “education inclusive for all backgrounds?”

The Daily Wire reports Warren first responded, “I love this question,” before saying: “And the answer is we need a Secretary of Education who believes in public education.”

The Massachusetts Senator continued in her answer, referencing an event during a rally in October when she was similarly asked by a nine-year-old transgender how she would make sure “kids like me feel safer in schools.”

“In fact, I have two qualifications that I talk about over and over for my Secretary of Education,” Warren said during the rally this week, per the Daily Wire. “The first: It has to be someone who’s taught in a public school, hello? And part 2, because it came from a young trans person who asked about a welcoming community and I said it starts with a Secretary of Education who has a lot to do with where we spend our money, with what gets advanced in our public schools, with what the standards are, and I said, ‘I’m going to have a Secretary of Education that this young trans person interviews on my behalf, and only if this person believes that our Secretary or Secretary of Education nominee is absolutely committed to creating a welcoming environment, a safe environment, and a full educational curriculum for everyone will that person actually be advanced to be Secretary of Education.'”

In the October exchange, Warren was also asked by the transgender child: “What do you think schools need to do better to make sure that I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework?”

Warren, at the time, answered via the report:

Oh, I like that question, Jacob. We’re going to do this. So let me start by saying I want to have a secretary of education who both believes in public education and believes in the value of every one of our kids and is willing to enforce our civil rights laws. It turns out that when the Department of Education was set up many years ago, the Secretary of Education was given a whole lot of power over the public schools and over the rules and how they’re enforced. And we’ve had some Secretaries of Education who’ve been better, and we’ve had one that’s been a whole lot worse. Her name is Betsy DeVos. (applause)

So, when I’m president, she’ll be gone. (applause) And here’s my plan, Jacob: I’m gonna find just the right Secretary of Education, but here’s what I plan to do. I want to make sure that the person that I think is the right Secretary of Education meets you and hears your story and then I want you to tell me if you think that’s the right person and then we’ll make the deal.

  3. Right now it looks like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  4. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing
    issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Appreciate it

  5. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

  6. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

  7. I got this site from my friend who informed me on the topic of this web site and at
    the moment this time I am browsing this web site and
    reading very informative content here.

  8. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
    post was good. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re
    going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  9. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I found this during my search for something concerning this.

  10. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!
