Unfortunately, we don’t have video for this (yet). Just the audio.
So it’ll have to be the audio we run in coast-to-coast campaign commercials.
Michigan's Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel: "Ya know what's not a problem for kids who are seeking a good education? Drag queens.
"I say this: a drag queen for every school! That is what would be fine for a kid." pic.twitter.com/fJPSlNJPnx

Pretty damning. I wonder what kind of a nonce-adjacent hack the left will drag out to defend this…?
Right. So here’s Brian Stelter, delivering the most implausible leftwing spin imaginable.
Listening to the clip is more useful than reading the quote since it makes clear that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel was exaggerating for effect. The crowd laughs. She said it during a civil-rights conference in Lansing in the course of criticizing Republicans for turning LGBT issues in schools (e.g., “don’t say gay”) into “wedge issues.” Her point is that drag queens aren’t menacing predators, they’re just performers. Essentially comic performers at that.
Wait, wait, wait, I’m just getting it over Soledad O’Brien’s Earpiece, that was actually not the comical leftwing propagandist Brian Stelter, that was the lead writer of the supposedly “conservative” blog Hot Air, AllahPundit, once again putting together a highlight reel for his next employer at The Bulwark, the Daily Beast, or Media Matters.
For reference, Hot Air is owned by alleged”conservative” media conglomerate Salem Media, and bills itself “news and commentary from a conservative point of view.”
Ahem. So where do we start with this Stelter-By-Proxy propaganda that a “drag queen in every school” was just a joke and that Michigan’s AG didn’t mean it, bigots?
1, people laugh at Trump’s lines. That doesn’t mean they don’t agree. In fact, it generally means they do agree.
2, the fact that the joke contains exaggeration does not mean people don’t agree with the point being made. I don’t think I tell virtually any jokes which do not contain exaggeration. Yet I mean everything I say (well, the main point, anyway).
3, The fact they agree that drag performers are “just performers” who are “comedic performers at that” means that they agree with the proposition that there’s no reason for them not to be in every school, and as they teach “tolerance,” why, they should be in every school.
So he’s lying again, and once again spinning like a top for the hard groomer left.
As he’s previously spun for them before, in defending, for example, explicitly illustrated gay porn books like Gender Queer in school libraries, while repeatedly pretending that conservative parents at school board meetings were just being Ignorantly Racist Hillbilly Hicks and objecting to Toni Morrison’s Beloved.
To this day, I don’t think the words Gender Queer have crossed his Apple MacBook keyboard.
Further proof this is seriously meant: Every other Democrat is saying pretty much the same thing.
NYC Mayor Eric Adams: Let us praise our True Storytellers, our Drag Queen Story Hour bards.
At a time when our LGBTQ+ communities are under increased attack across this country, we must use our education system to educate. The goal is not only for our children to be academically smart, but also emotionally intelligent.

The Miami Herald argues that parental choice must include the state forcing drag queens into the schools against the wishes of parents:

There was a time when the only places queer people could congregate and drag queens could perform their female impersonations and lip syncing were seedy bars and nightclubs on the margins of mainstream society. Today, drag queens are on TV, thanks to shows such as “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” social media and pop culture. Drag Sunday brunches and drag bingo are popular fixtures in South Florida. Turns out that hurts the sensibilities of some Republicans.
Speaking of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nancy Pelosi just appeared there to declare “Drag is what America is all about!”
Quite similar to AllahPundit’s fellow traveler David French’s line about drag queen story hours being “a blessing of liberty.”
So with all of these Democrats declaring that Drag Queens in our schools are The Last Troubadours, where does AllahPundit get off claiming that the gay Michigan AG’s declaration that “everything is better with drag queens” and urging of “a drag queen in every school” was merely “exaggerating for effect” and “joking”?
Easy: He’s a leftwing Democrat propagandist and will say anything to advance the leftwing Democrat line.
And to attack conservatives, of course.
Is Salem Media really going to keep this pro-CRT, pro-gay-porn-in-school-libraries, pro-drag-in-schools prog groomer on its “conservative” blog? If they love this broken shitlib alkie so much, why don’t they spin him off his own liberal noncey Blessings of Liberty log where he can push CRT and drag queens in schools and transgenderism taught to kindergardeners and the rest of what is obviously the preferred politics of the Salem Media corporate boardroom ?
Hey, I’ve got a perfect name for the blog:
Beloved by Toni Morrison
Because, see, AllahPundit, continues insisting that the outrage by parents at schoolboard meetings was over Beloved by Toni Morrison, rather than about Gender Queer and Lawn Boy.
Because he lies for the left and refuses to admit that the right ever has a point.
He literally hates the actual right. Like almost all of the NeverTrumpers. He hates the actual right.
The neocons — really, the neoliberals — enjoyed controlling the right and diverting and perverting the right into supporting a neoliberal/neocon agenda — they thought themselves heroes for this; they both accumulated support for a politics they (wrongly) thought was noble and good, and also stole support away from a politics (the politics of the actual right) they thought was ignorant, cruel, corrupt, bigoted, stupid, and ignoble.
The scumbag AG said the quiet part out loud. She was not joking. The democrats are trying to walk back the comments but the damage is done
Voters in MI will come out in droves to vote against her in the general this November
Michigan needs to vote out all Democrats out of office in November
This needs to be done all across the nation.
And how do they know this? Do they fully vett someone that dresses up as a street hooker of the opposite sex before they allow them full and unfettered access to other people’s children?
People can’t afford to put gas in their vehicles to go to work. THAT’S what American is all about, Nancy, you slurring, drooling drunk.
A far stretch from Vaudeville, Vaudeville – Wikipedia
Those who can’t understand how normal people find that absolutely and irrevocably disgusting have no business being in any form of government. ANYWHERE.
By the way, I am now on something called “Avast”, which looks like it is part of Google. Google, Microsoft Edge and the Samsung browser on my phone all give me the “email address is invalid” message and the “test” trick doesn’t work; I get the message then, too. Duck Duck Go worked on my phone, and I was trying to use if for my browser on my laptop when I got this “Avast”. Anyway… that’s the deal.
Very weird. I’ve tried to duplicate the error and it works for me whether I’m logged into WordPress or not. Retire is having issues with this as well.
I’m on my phone so, test.
