Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe snapped at a Virginia Rising official when confronted on his claims parents should not be in charge of their child’s education.
Last month during a debate with Republican Glenn Youngkin, McAuliffe said he doesn’t believe parents should have a say in what their kids are learning in school.
“The parents had the right to veto books… also take them off the shelves,” McAuliffe said. “I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions.”
“I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach,” McAuliffe added.
McAuliffe snapped at a conservative operative and told them they were a danger to him because they weren’t wearing a mask.
“Who do you think should be in charge of education, if not Virginia parents?” the Virginia Rising tracker asked McAuliffe.
“Have you been vaccinated yet?! That’s the question I want to know….You should have a mask on! You’re dangerous here,” McAuliffe said while pointing his finger and scolding the tracker.
