CNN Blasts Teacher Union President Weingarten Over Lack Of Remorse About COVID School Closings

  • CNN contributor Scott Jennings went off on American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten to her face late Thursday about her lack of “remorse” over COVID-19 school closures.
  • Jennings criticized Weingarten for arguing she was an advocate for reopening schools during the COVID pandemic, even though she called for school closures that allegedly caused “emotional damage” to children.
  • “Speaking on behalf of millions of American parents, I have four [children] at home, I had to teach them at home, my wife had to teach them at home,” Jennings said. “I am stunned by what you have said this week, your claiming to wanting to reopen schools. I think you’ll find that most parents believe you were the tip of the spear of school closures. There are numerous of statements you made over the summer of 2020, scaring people to death about the possibility of reopening schools. And I hear no remorse whatsoever about the generational damage that’s been done to these kids.”
