Resurfaced photos show Michelle Obama celebrating Dr. Seuss during White House event

The works of famed children’s author Dr. Seuss have recently been panned by some critics as racially insensitive, but that might come as news to former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama.

Recently resurfaced photos of the then-first lady hosting Seuss-themed events at the White House reveal her apparent support of the author and his massive contributions to childhood reading, as Breitbart reports.

“All the stuff you need to know”

Among the images are some showing Michelle Obama reading Dr. Seuss classics to children on Read Across America Day, which falls on Seuss’ birthday, March 2.

During a 2015 celebration at the White House, she was surrounded by popular characters from his books and declared: “We love Dr. Seuss in this house.”

Her husband was also an outspoken proponent of Seuss’ writing, praising his “whimsical wordplay and curious characters” while proclaiming that “pretty much all the stuff you need to know” can be found in the pages of the beloved author’s books.

“We’re all the same, so why would we treat somebody different just because they don’t have a star on their belly?” President Obama asked during one event.

“All communities and families”

Like countless parents over the course of several decades, the Obamas clearly saw the benefits of exposing young children to Seuss’ canon. A lot can change over the course of just a few years, however, and President Joe Biden quietly purged any references to Seuss from his Read Across America Day proclamation earlier this week.

Furthermore, the company that publishes the children’s books has pulled six titles after working with “experts” and declaring a commitment “to action” against the supposedly offensive content included therein.

“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises explained. “Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’s catalog represents and supports all communities and families.”

The six titles set to be pulled from publication include Think That I Saw It on Mulberry StreetIf I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.

In light of the new backlash against Seuss, fans have sent many of his books to the top of the Amazon bestseller list. Photos displaying the Obamas clear approval of Seuss’ contribution to children’s literature only add to the widespread belief that efforts to effectively cancel him are simply ridiculous.

    1. The dumbocraps have now become the equivalent of the Nazi book burners. Even the Public broadcasting systems muppets are being attached, the fools and idiots who start this crap are beyond craven.

  1. This is just a ploy to the Republicans that the Democrats are in control of everything. I think that E-bay and Amazon should be the senate being reviewed by the Senators about this action to take them off their shelves.

    1. You hit the nail on the head Charles. Michelle and Barack are the two biggest racists and dividers in this Country. Look what he did in 8 years. Glad to see him go.

  4. I have agree with these comments, Dr Seuss has been a staple in our country for years, but now just like idiots that want statues tore down, renaming military bases, renaming food products, what’s next, renaming the White House to the People’s House, bunch of Cake Eaters

  5. It sure Amazes me how the idiotic Liberal media “Forgets” what was done back in the Obama fiasco years in office. Their daughters, the visits to every continent except Antarctica, the wasted money, the frequent visits from America’s #1 Racist and do nothing for a living to see Obama several times a week, over millions of dollars taken to Iran and kisses the hand of Our #1 enemy of the Sands. NO! But STOP the “racist” Dr. Seuss! Ridiculous!

  7. We already know how stupid you have become. You don’t have to keep proving it over and over and over. etc,etc,etc…

  8. Dr. Seuss books were never racist, are not racist now and never will be. Some people just have to make everything racist to feel woke, or whatever they feel. Next Cinderlla, Snow White, Grimms Fairy Tales, etc. will be racist – everything else is. Suggestion, if so much is racist to some people, they are free to leave this country and go to China or wherever else they will be happy — please leave and we will keep Dr. Seuss.

  9. So we are banning children’s books that’s the american way remember when Hitler was doing that so that tells you democrat is just a nicer way of saying nazi parts good job nazis

  10. The American people are too dumb down to become informed until it ‘s too late and the Country becomes worse than a 3rd world Country….You can;t fix stupid !!!!

  11. Geez, millions of people want to come and live in the land of the free. Cancel culture hates America. Stand up and cancel the haters of the greatest country in the world.
