LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Now, the left tried to wish away the issue of CRT in our schools in Virginia. And it seems to be the same case here. They're kind of wishing this away.


INGRAHAM: To your point, Senator, this disturbing exchange between Congressman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and HHS secretary Becerra today, watch:


REP. LAUREN BOEBERT (R-CO): Do you believe that a child is capable of making life-altering decisions to name themselves?

SEC. XAVIER BECERRA: So, let me just say to you that I don't agree with your premise, but what I will say to you is children know much about themselves.


BECERRA: I believe in supporting and protecting transgender youth.


BECERRA: And I would really urge that politicians like you stay out of their business.


INGRAHAM: This is supporting child abuse. So, will you call for his immediate removal just for that line? 

SEN. JOSH HAWLEY (GUEST): Absolutely. And I think this idea that parents should be told by bureaucrats how to raise their children, that parents should be told that the government knows best, and it can dictate to them what is best for their children. I mean, this is really a decision that parents need to make. Parents know what's best for their children, not these government bureaucrats.
