Dr. Seuss would not be shared with a mouse. I’m not going to read Dr. Seuss to my wife. I’ve heard Dr. Seuss is a jerk. But there will be no more Dr. Seuss at the White House.
Yes, Theodor Seuss Geisel — arguably the world’s most popular children’s book author, as well as a left-wing political cartoonist and the emblem of all that was right and good about early childhood learning — has been hit by the cancel culture thresher.

President Joe Biden neglected to reference Dr. Seuss in any way in his announcement for “Read Across America Day” on Tuesday, despite the fact that the holiday was created on Seuss’ birthday, March 2. The decision comes after Dr. Seuss Enterprises revealed that six of his books will be discontinued because they “portray characters in hurtful and wrong ways.”
“Once a young person develops a love of reading, the advantages reach far beyond the classroom. Reading broadens our horizons, exposes us to new environments, cultures, and languages, and cultivates empathy and comprehension of other people’s feelings and perspectives.
“It enables us to make sense of the world as it is, as well as encourages us to imagine what it might be. Reading also strengthens our memory, helps us become better problem solvers, and also lowers our risk of developing cognitive disabilities like Alzheimer’s later in life, according to research. Reading will nourish not only our minds, but also our souls, if we have the right book.”
Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama also referenced Dr. Seuss in their proclamations for Read Around America Day, according to Fox News.
In 2015, Obama said, “Theodor Seuss Geisel, best known as Dr. Seuss, has ignited a passion for reading in generations of students.” “His whimsical wordplay and curious characters encourage kids to dream big and remind readers of all ages that ‘a person is a person no matter how small.’”
Meanwhile, Trump told Americans of Dr. Seuss’s “still-vibrant words: ‘You have brains in your head.'” You’ve got your feet in your trainers. You are free to go in any direction you want.’
Not long ago, Vice President Kamala Harris agreed that Dr. Seuss deserved to be honored on Read Across America Day.
Happy birthday, #DrSeuss! “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
