Trump fans hit out at Michelle Obama for reading 'racist' Dr Seuss books to kids while she was First Lady after school librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro rejected Melania's gift

 It wasn't a problem when other First Ladies read Dr. Seuss to kids.  But, when a nobody Liberian says their racist we're supposed to agree?   

Daily Mail reports Michelle Obama has become a target for mockery in the wake of a spat between First Lady Melania Trump and a Massachusetts school librarian.

In an open letter on Tuesday, Cambridgeport Elementary School librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro rejected a gift of several Dr Seuss books, saying their whimsical illustrations were 'steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes'.

Now Twitter users - armed with photos of Michelle Obama reading Dr Seuss books to children during her time in the White House - are mocking those claims.
