White House press secretary Jen Psaki broke down in tears discussing the Parental Rights in Education law in Florida, saying it makes her “completely crazy” because it’s ‘hurting’ kids.
Psaki’s breakdown came during an interview on Jessica Yellin’s “News Not Noise” podcast where she was asked to comment on the so-called “backlash” to gay marriage, including the bill Democrats and the media have mislabeled the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.
“I’m going to get emotional about this issue because it’s horrible,” Psaki warned adding later, “This is an issue that makes me completely crazy.”
Clearly distraught, she accused Republicans of using the legislation for political purposes in a way that is “harsh and cruel to kids.”
“It’s like kids who are bullied and then all these leaders are taking steps to hurt them and hurt their lives and hurt their families,” Psaki said.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed the bill into law back in March.

Psaki Crying Over Mislabeled ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill
Shedding tears over a law that gives parents a greater say in their children’s education is borderline psychotic, and it’s difficult to assess what fully fictional and imagined harm is being done to children in Psaki’s mind.
The legislation restricts teachers and school districts from giving classroom instruction on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in kindergarten through third grade.
This is common sense to most people. And Psaki is crying over it?
Today, I signed HB 1557, the Parental Rights in Education Act, into law.
It ensures parents can send their kids to kindergarten without gender ideology being injected into instruction and they will be notified and have the right to decline healthcare services offered at schools. pic.twitter.com/OLnW2GLrJl

Press Secretary to Governor DeSantis, Christina Pushaw, gently described Psaki’s podcast appearance as “troubling.”
“It’s troubling that a Biden Administration official would break down in tears because of a law that protects parental rights,” Pushaw said.
“Why is it so important to her for teachers to instruct children in grades k-3 about transgenderism and sexuality?”
If there’s anything worth crying over it’s the breakdown of society and the American education system that grooms children to accept such topics as normal despite their young age.

Protecting Kids, Despite Psaki’s Tears
If anything, Psaki is crying over teachers not being able to talk gender and sexuality with severely underaged children behind the backs of their parents – something that is incredibly disturbing.
Oddly enough, no tears were shed – by Psaki, Hollywood, liberals, or otherwise – when China demanded Warner Brothers remove gay dialogue from their movie, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
A literal case of ‘Don’t Say Gay’ and because it was China, not Florida, Psaki didn’t start crying.
Hollywood was very upset with Florida’s parental rights bill that falsely they labeled “don’t say gay.” But when China demanded a gay reference in the new Harry Potter movie be removed, MGM pulled it. When China says don’t say gay, Hollywood does it: https://t.co/mlYjdBEjW6

The Political Insider’s Kathleen Anderson reported on a group called Lesbians United that defended Florida’s parental rights legislation.
“Lesbians United knows homophobia when we see it – and Florida’s proposed Parental Rights in Education Act is emphatically not it,” they write.
“Instead, it is a collection of reasonable safeguarding measures, designed to protect kids – including young lesbian and gay boys – from exposure to inappropriate sexual content and from dangerous overreach by schools.”
Think about that. Protecting kids from inappropriate sexual content is what moved Psaki to tears, what made her nearly inconsolable. What a disgrace. She’s going to fit right in over at MSNBC.
