- A conservative father and former Bush administration official confronted teachers union boss Randi Weingarten Thursday over her claim that she worked to reopen schools during the COVID pandemic, telling the labor leader during a live CNN panel discussion that parents know better.
- The tense moment came on “CNN Tonight,” as Scott Jennings, former deputy director of political affairs for President George W. Bush, appeared with Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) on a panel moderated by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.
- Weingarten insisted that the AFT “wanted to reopen schools more fulsomely,” and “knew schools needed to be open.” A dumbfounded Jennings called Weingarten out on the spot.
