House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy triggered rage from leftists late Friday by posting a video to Twitter of himself reading Dr. Seuss’s classic children’s book “Green Eggs and Ham” in protest of what many on the right see as a modern-day book burning.
The harmless stunt was motivated by multiple Dr. Seuss books not only being dropped by publishers over alleged racism but also being banned from being sold. Mainstream institutions are essentially acting like his books are a Schedule 1 drug.
I still like Dr. Seuss, so I decided to read Green Eggs and Ham.
RT if you still like him too! pic.twitter.com/2pbRbSiJD6
