MARA STENGLER: Can I say one thing about --


STENGLER: I don't think people necessarily truly understand what critical race theory is. Younger children are not being taught critical race theory. They can't understand critical race theory. They're being taught history.

So when somebody here out in Loudoun County, I understand, was upset that his second grade child was taught that Christopher Columbus killed many indigenous people, that's part of history. That is what Christopher Columbus did.

So, I have a hard time -- I think kids have to learn history, the good, the bad, the ugly, so they can become critical thinkers.

MACCALLUM: I don't think anybody is against that. I think we have to do a fact check on the Christopher Columbus story as well.
