Chris Wallace is now working for CNN on its streaming platform, CNN+.
This week, he interviewed White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki over her emotional response to the Florida parental rights bill.
Believe it or not, he actually put her on the spot with a really tough question.
I Have a Problem with That
While talking to Psaki, Wallace asked her a question from a parental point of view.
After playing the clip of Psaki having her emotionally charged interview, he asked her, “I just want to drill down a little bit here, though, Jen, because look, I understand that it’s an emotionally fraught issue.
“I understand that some of the supporters of the bill have used inflammatory language, saying that opponents of the bill want to sexualize children or groom children.
“On the other hand, don’t parents have a right to have concern?
“I mean, we’re talking specifically here about teaching about sex in kindergarten through third grade.
“I have to say as a parent, I would have problems with that.”
In a nutshell, Psaki told him parents don’t deserve to be able to make that decision…
Again, Psaki is just flat-out wrong in how she is portraying this.
For instance, a teacher would be able to answer the question that Psaki posed.
The teacher could tell the student they are a biological boy or girl.
The teacher could also say the student’s two mommies are gay, which is why she has two moms.
She could then tell the child to discuss this more with her parents and reach out to the parents to let them know what was coming their way.
What the teacher cannot do is teach classes on gender identity or sexuality.
The bill even reads that casual conversations on sexuality are not blocked as part of the legislation.
So, as usually, Psaki gets it wrong on a national stage, dishing out disinformation that never gets checked.
