White House press secretary Jen Psaki wept during the “News Not Noise” podcast that came out on Thursday as she lamented over the “harsh and cruel” parental rights bills in Florida and elsewhere that liberals have misnomered as anti-LGBTQ.
The “News Not Noise” podcast host Jessica Yellin asked Psaki about the legislation that has passed in numerous conservative-led states across the nation.
“How do you make sense of what’s happening?” Yellin disingenuously asked the press secretary. “Is this sort of a predictable backlash to change? Or is this an organized political attempt to create a wedge issue ahead of the midterms in the 2024 campaign? Sort of like the way gay marriage was weaponized in 2004?”
“Ding, ding ding,” Psaki responded while attempting to parse her words to work around the “Hatch Act police.” She harshly condemned the legislation, stating, “The political games and harsh and cruel attempts at laws, or laws that we’re seeing in some states like Florida, that is not a reflection of the country moving to oppose LGBTQ+ communities. That is not what we see in data, that is not factual, and that is not where things stand. This is a political wedge issue, and an attempt to win a culture war.”

That’s when the tears began to flow right on cue as Psaki addressed the alleged impact of the legislation on children.
“They’re doing that in a way that is harsh and cruel to a community of kids, especially,” she claimed while weeping. “I’m going to get emotional about this issue because it’s horrible! But it’s kids who are bullied, and all these leaders are taking steps to hurt them, and hurt their lives and hurt their families! And you look at some of these laws in these states and who’s going after parents who are in loving relationships, who have kids. It’s completely outrageous! Sorry, this is an issue that makes me completely crazy.”

There are now over 200 bills floating around out there aimed at protecting young children and preserving parents’ rights to have a say in what they are taught. But the left and the media such as The Washington Post are calling the bills an effort to eliminate protections for transgender and gay children, all the while blaming Republicans for doing so. Approximately 75 of those bills are focusing on class discussions and library books.
“What we’re talking about here in Florida, for example … is that families, if you have a kid in a classroom, and I have a kindergartner, right?” Psaki remarked. “I can imagine her saying, ‘My friend has two moms. My friend has two dads.’ And the teacher in her classroom, I would hope would say, ‘That’s wonderful. They’re loving parents, and you have a mom and a dad.’ This is penalizing teachers and educators. I mean, it is. There are so many layers of this that are outrageous, and I hope people continue to educate themselves on this because it is a bad side of politics.”
