Fox guest on classroom fairness: Exclude kids who don’t deserve a ‘pity Valentine’

Published

on

A Fox News guest on Thursday asserted that some children should be excluded when Valentine’s Day cards are given out at school so that they can learn that the world isn’t fair while the “stakes are low.”

For years, many teachers have asked grade-school students to bring Valentine’s Day cards for everyone in the class if they bring them to school. But when one New Jersey teacher sent a note home this year explaining the policy, Fox News hosted a segment suggesting that political correctness was running amuck.

“Valentine’s Day is about expressing your unique heartfelt feelings for your special loved one,” blogger Elizabeth Esther told Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. “To just robotically hand out, ‘Here’s your Valentine, here’s your Valentine.’ Like, what are we? It totally removes the meaning, the special memory for the kids.”

“You can’t make life 100 percent fair,” she added. “And why not let them experience a little of that, like, ‘Wow, okay,’ while they’re young and the stakes are low rather when they’re 20 years old and they’re still expecting everyone to give them a Valentines.”

Esther asserted that the children who would not have gotten a Valentine were only getting a “pity Valentine” if teachers required fairness in the classroom.

“That doesn’t feel any better,” she declared.

Parenting expert Jessica Gottlieb, however, explained that it did feel better for kids to get a Valentine’s Day card instead of being isolated from the rest of the class.

“Believe me, they experience plenty of rejection day in and day out,” Gottlieb said. “There’s absolutely no reason to be excluding them.”

Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

According to the laughing Steele, there was "no way in hell" Graham was sincere when he made that pledge.

Asked by host Capehart about the Graham statement, Steele began, "No, I didn't believe it when he said it."

"Everyone is taking the people at their word," the former GOP executive explained. "There was no way in hell that a Supreme Court nomination opens up, it could open up the day before the election and Donald Trump and Lindsey Graham and everyone would be all on it."
