DESPERATION: Pocahontas Wants a 9-Year-Old Transgender Boy to Vet Her Education Secretary
The presidential campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has fizzled out in recent weeks, and with the Iowa primary just days away, Pocahontas is growing increasingly desperate.
Her pandering sunk to new lows on Thursday when she told a crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa that she would have a 9-year-old transgender boy vet her Secretary of Education candidate if she wins the presidency in November.
“I have two qualifications that I talk about over and over for my Secretary of Education,” she said. “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.’ “
She added: “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.”
Warren’s comments in her full context can be seen here:
Warren originally met this 9-year-old transgender boy, named Jacob Lemay, during a CNN town hall that occurred on Oct. 10, 2019.
“What will you do in your first week as president to make sure that kids like me feel safer in schools, and what do you think schools need to do better to make sure that I don’t have to worry about anything but my homework?” the 9-year-old asked.
“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,” the senator replied. “I want to make sure that the person 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.”

Following that town hall, Warren seemed like she was poised to become the front runner as she was gaining momentum in the polls. It didn’t last though, and now she is trying to re-capture that magic with extreme pandering.
It doesn’t look like it’s going to work though, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) steadily gaining support heading into primary season. Warren will be fortunate to come in third place during the upcoming Iowa caucus.
