SHANNON BREAM (CO-HOST): Melania Trump donating 10 Dr. Seuss books to a school in Massachusetts. But the school’s librarian rejected the gesture, sending a letter thanking Mrs. Trump for the books saying, our school doesn’t need them, and offering her some advice that a lot of people think reads like a dig.

RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY: I mean this is just incredible. There was an article this -- or an op-ed this week in The Wall Street Journal that said, the politicization of everything, indeed. A beautiful letter, written by the first lady with free books to the children by the way. I don't even know if it was hers to reject or return. These were a gift to the children. But look, everything is political these days and I think it's a warning to parents that you know, parenting is not a spectator sport anymore. They’re not just trying to indoctrinate our children in colleges, they’re doing it at the elementary level, and you can't assume that your kids are getting classic literature. And she also provided -- your readers should read this letter, please Google it. It's absolutely an unbelievable letter. Dr. Seuss is racist, news to me, I've been reading it for 17 years now to my eight kids. We need to actually stop this silliness. It's gotten to the point of insanity, really.
