President Joe Biden’s administration joined the far-Left cancel culture attack on the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss on Wednesday.
Unlike previous administrations going back to former President Bill Clinton, Biden did not mention Dr. Seuss during the National Read Across America Day.

The move came just hours after Dr. Seuss Enterprises said six of the author’s children’s books — including the classics “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo” — would no longer be published because they were racist and insensitive.
But there’s one problem: Biden’s own vice president was celebrating Dr. Seuss’ books just a few short years ago.
In 2017, Harris celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday and encouraged people to read his work —
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.”
— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) March 2, 2017
It left critics asking: Should Harris apologize to the woke mob for pushing these so-called racist, harmful books onto our nation’s children?

Of course, no one should question Biden himself, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
When asked why Biden was the first president in 20 years that has failed to include Dr. Seuss in his administration’s National Read Across America Day statement this year, Psaki said it was written for him by someone else.
“The proclamation was written by the Department of Education and you could certainly speak to them about more specifics about the drafting of it, but Read Across America Day has not existed forever,” Psaki said Tuesday. “It has only been around for a short period of time. It elevates and celebrates a love of reading among our nation’s youngest readers and the day is also a chance to celebrate diverse authors whose work and lived experience reflect the diversity of our country.
“That’s certainly what they attempt to do or hope to do this year. And as we celebrate the love of reading and uplift diverse and representative authors, it is especially important that we ensure all children can see themselves represented and celebrated in the books that they read.”
National Read Across America Day was founded on Mar. 2 in 1998 by former President Bill Clinton, in part, to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

Books by Dr. Seuss — born Theodor “Ted” Seuss Geisel — have been translated into dozens of languages and are sold around the world. He passed away in 1991.
Dr. Seuss Enterprises was founded by Geisel’s family after his death to honor his legacy. His popular books earn between $10-$30 million annually, the company said.
