[otw_shortcode_dropcap label=”A” font=”Ultra” background_color_class=”otw-no-background” size=”large” border_color_class=”otw-no-border-color”][/otw_shortcode_dropcap]nyone who thinks that Democrats are not taking advantage of the crumbling of society and its economic repercussions as a result of the coronavirus in order to try and get Trump out of office is dead wrong. Plain and simple, they care more about getting Trump out of the White House than they do about your livelihood and your children’s livelihood. Any Democrat with any position of power at any level is doing their part to contribute to the maniacal hunt against Trump.

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer is the latest culprit, letting it slip that she has no intention of reopening schools until after the November elections. KFI’s “John and Ken Show” gained possession of the phone call recording and played a clip on their show.

“But I did receive a recording of Doctor Barbara Ferrer doing a conference call with a collection of school nurses, school administrators, other education and medical professionals” said one of the hosts. “And the basic premise of the phone call was to update everyone on the status of where the county is with respect to opening schools. Now, I listened to the audio and I’m just going to play this, this is an excerpt from this audio” the host announced before playing the clip.

Listen to “@John&KenShow Steve Gregory Catches Dr Ferrer Saying Schools Wont Open Until Election” on Spreaker.

On the audio, Dr. Ferrer says, “So we don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening K through 12 schools at least through, uh, at least until after the election.” Ferrer clearly seemed to have caught herself saying “through the election” and instead said “after.” Ferrer continued, “After, ya know, in early November. Like when we just look at the timing of everything it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now, until we get after, until we are done with the elections.”

“That seems odd”  and “what does that have to do with the elections” the radio hosts immediately shot back once the audio clip ended. According to Fox News, the Los Angeles Unified School District is the nation’s second-largest district with nearly 735,000 students. Over the summer the district announced it would start the school year with only distance learning.

In defense of Dr. Ferrer’s agenda-filled comments, a county Department of Public Health spokesperson told Fox News “Dr. Ferrer’s comment was related only to timing any expanded school re-openings to allow for enough time from the implementation of changes to assess impact prior to expansions.”  One of the radio hosts said what many believe to be true: “I interpret it as they’re holding off until the election because sending the kids back into school would put everybody in a good mood…they’ll feel that the whole nightmare is over and that gives goodwill to Trump and more votes.”
