As President Donald Trump pushes to reopen schools in the fall amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, National Education Association (NEA) president Lily Eskelsen Garcia on Wednesday double-dog dared the president to sit in a class of 39 sixth graders and breathe that air.
Eskelsen Garcia on CNNs New Day slammed Trump for not using the term safely in his push to reopen, which she said is why the NEA supports his opponent former Vice President Joe Biden in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
Host Alisyn Camerota asked, Are public schools ready to open in September?
You can see why we are supporting Joe Biden over Donald Trump. Did you hear the word he didnt use? Safely. Safely, Eskelsen Garcia replied. Theres no one that wants their kids back with us more than teachers. Maybe their parent. Maybe their parents beat us out there, but we want to open it safely. We see what happens when they let bars open prematurely and you saw those young adults went home and they infected everybody around them. This isnt a bar. Were talking about second graders. I had 39 sixth graders one year in my class. I double-dog dare Donald Trump to sit in a class of 39 sixth graders and breathe that air without any preparation for how were going to bring our kids back safely.

When she references endorsing Joe Biden, she omits to state that President Trump was not allowed to address the NEA in 2019 because the presiding officer Eskelsen-Garcia deemed that Trump had disqualified himself by not bowing to the NEA.
Eskelsen-Garcia ignores the studies that show that children seem unaffected by the Wuhan virus and do not appear to serve as vectors either. She does not explain how those school children dependent upon government subsidized breakfast and lunch meals will be fed in September.
This woman is a total nutjob.
Make her call her bluff, Mr. President!
Everybody will be breathing fine until the Trump-haters set the school on fire.
Well if the current crop of indoctrinators all die we might be able to save education.
He should take her up on it.
They keep this up I want a rebate on my property taxes. Can I get a witness?
But it should be a surprise visit.
These teachers unions couldn’t have asked for a better virus, they dont have to actually work and they get paid. They dont want to have to be around kids, so they scream OMG OMG THE VIRUS meanwhile they get paid a crapload of money to basically do nothing
True, imagine not having some prick tell your kid everyday that America is evil and Communism rocks
Let them keep as many schools closed as they like. When people see that the schools that opened are fine it will be one more nail in the coffin for the Democrats. Trump will have a couple of months worth of commercials showing how the Democrats have ruined everything they control.
It is more than likely Lily hasnt spent a whole day in a classroom in many years. This means she doesnt know sh*t.
Tell you what, Eskelsen (if that’s your REAL name), if you had to pick between a school room of 39 kids or a New York nursing home with 39 patients, which would YOU choose?
I triple dog dare her to stick her tongue to one of the children!..............
I’m fine with you raising the bar for “safety” into the stratosphere - as long as YOU are paying for it not us.
If the teachers don’t teach, they don’t get paid. Period.
He’s kind of busy trying to run the USA while Drama Queen Garcia can’t seem to manage 15 kids
She’s also from California, so that explains why she is half baked.
Her actual term of office should be over by now, not that anyone would notice the difference in the NEA’s politics.
Thank you, Ms. Garcia, for suggesting such a wonderful photo opportunity.
And I dont want to pay 75% of my property taxes.
