Administration counters criticism by helping certain “at-risk” youth
To try and stem all the criticism of the Trump administration for removing federal protection for transgender students, Sean Spicer announced to the press that “President Trump is issuing federal protection for an ignored group of at-risk students — bullies.”
He went on to complain that school psychologists and overprotective parents have changed normal, healthy interaction among kids by saturating the nation’s school with anti-bullying programs.
“Kids used to help prepare each other for the real world where you can’t whine to mommy or daddy when your boss gets on your case,” Spicer continued.
“Are you saying that the administration believes that bullying is a good thing?” called out a reporter incredulously shaking his head.
Spicer was quick to answer: “That’s not what President Trump is saying. As always, he is focusing on positive outcomes, the ends whatever the means. Kids learn their place in society, that there are top dogs, and the others need to figure out how to deal with that.”
Spicer went on to explain that all anti-bullying programs would be banned and all anti-bullying materials burned. “Bullies are strong, natural leaders. These programs are destroying our future leaders, future CEO’s, even our future presidents!” he said with a flourish.
When the reporters began to furrow their brows and murmur among themselves, an impatient Sean Spicer blustered: “Look, just think of it as The Apprentice, Jr.”
