Facts

    At a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa last Sunday, Massachusetts senator and democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren stated that she would require any potential secretary of education candidate to be interviewed by a 9-year-old trans child

    The answer came in response to a question from a member of the audience about the inclusion of LGBTQ history and sexual education in public schools.  For some background, it appears Warren’s comments were in reference to a CNN Equality Town Hall that was televised back in October.  During that event, a child that was born a female but now goes by the name “Jacob” and identifies as a male, asked Senator Warren what she would do as president to ensure trans kids “feel safer in schools”.  All of the sources we reviewed seem to conclude that Senator Warren was stating she would have a “Jacob” interview and approve of any potential secretary of education candidate.  

    Left

    We did not find many mainstream Left-wing media outlets covering this story.  PinkNews, a pro-LGBTQ news outlet did run the story and used it to criticize the Trump administration and current secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, because they have, “stripped nearly all of the civil rights protections for transgender children that were enforced under the Obama administration…”

    Right

    Numerous Right-wing outlets from Fox News to Breitbart covered Senator Warren’s comments.  The general consensus seems to be that the idea of a 9-year-old interviewing a cabinet-level official is ridiculous.  Matt Wolking, Deputy Director of Communications for President Trump’s 2020 campaign tweeted, “This is a perfect encapsulation of today’s loony Democrat Party.”
