Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display.

And you just know that if Michelle Obama had donated the exact same books, she would have been hailed as a literary scholar/genius.

A librarian at the Cambridgeport Elementary School in Massachusetts is declining a shipment of books from first lady Melania Trump.

One school from each state was chosen by the White House to receive 10 Dr. Seuss books as part of National Read a Book Day, CBS Boston reports.

“Getting an education is perhaps the most important and wondrous opportunity of your young lives,” Trump said in a letter to the children who will be receiving books.

The school’s librarian, Liz Phipps Soeiro, wrote a lengthy editorial for the Horn Book’s Family Reading blog explaining why her school does not need the books.

“My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science. Multiple studies show that schools with professionally staffed libraries improve student performance,” wrote Phipps Soeiro.

“You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature. As First Lady of the United States, you have an incredible platform with world-class resources at your fingertips,” she wrote….

    I think Melania got caught in the crossfire of the Left’s dislike of Betsy DeVos, who spoke at Harvard last night. The librarian’s letter included a sentence critical of DeVos’ Ed. policies, no specifics given. Per article (link below), Cambridge Public Schools say that the librarian did not have authority to reject or accept the book donation and she has been counseled. Also says that her twitter account appears to have been deleted.
