BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – White House press secretary Jen Psaki wouldn’t say why President Biden dropped Dr. Seuss from “Read Across America Day,” the annual celebration of reading in honor of the legendary children’s author.

While Biden followed presidential tradition in proclaiming “Read Across America Day” on Tuesday, March 2, Dr. Seuss’ birthday, he bucked his predecessors by leaving out any mention of Dr. Seuss from the proclamation.

President Biden later stated, “I have to be honest, I don’t know who Dr. Seuss is, but obviously he’s in the medical profession. Earlier today, I told my staff I might consider using him to replace Dr. Fauci. They must’ve thought it was a brilliant idea, because they immediately wanted to know how high is my I.Q.”
