The GOP has a habit of creating laws that are no more than solutions without problems. Take for example the many, many laws passed since the defeat of Donald Trump and a number of GOP candidates in 2020 that are purported to prevent voter fraud. Since there has never in history been any widespread or significant voter fraud reported, it’s the kind of “win” for the GOP that doesn’t mean much to the voters but helps them at the polls.
"Do you have examples of schools in Florida that are teaching kindergarteners about sex education?" — Jen Psaki in response to a loaded questions from Peter Doocy pic.twitter.com/X6ZkhaoXWy

In addition to recent rants and pearl-clutching over critical race theory (CRT), which is not being taught in public schools and no GOP elected official could explain or apply if they had to, the newest “problem” that Republicans fought to solve is the problem of kindergarteners being taught sex education lessons. In response, the governor and wanna-be 2024 presidential candidate from Florida, Ron DeSantis, passed his “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which harms LGBTQ youth and their family members and solves a non-existent problem.
On Monday, Fox News Peter Doocy, raised questions about the White House’s stance on sexual education in kindergarten classes, wasting the time of the press secretary and other reporters by asking “does the White House support that kind of classroom instruction before kindergarten?”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki threw a question right back at him. “Do you have examples of schools in Florida that are teaching kindergarteners about sex education?” Doocy stammered that he was just asking and didn’t address the question he had been asked.
‘I think that’s a relevant question because I think this is a politically-charged harsh law that is putting parents and LGBTQ+ kids in a very difficult, heartbreaking circumstance. And so, I actually think that’s a pretty relevant question.’
Twitter, as usual, was there for the latest takedown of Peter Doocy. Read some of their comments below:
