Do you assume that every person who gives you a gift assumes you are too poor to have provided that item to yourself otherwise?

No.

Well that sort of is the assumption that is going on here.

"Cambridge is so rich they don't need this! Why didn't she just give it to the poor schools!?"

What is wrong with rejecting the gift, telling them to give it to the needy instead? What is wrong with telling the administration that there are other schools that are in need and telling them that DeVos is not doing a good job?
Maybe if Melania has said that she insists then she would have accepted?

Being a liberal sounds like a miserable life, I am sad for liberals that they believe they live in such a horrible world.

Reread the OP. This is not about the "need" of any school. It's about a moron that created angst for no good reason.

The author of the rant? I agree.

If the school doesn't want anything from the First Lady, then maybe they should just reject all federal funding also.

That'll show this racist administration!

Yeah!

Being a Trumpkin sounds like a miserable life. I feel sad for you.
I can play your game but this is not a mud pit.

In case anyone is interested, the text of her letter is here:
www.hbook.com...

The closing paragraph:

I am honored that you recognized my students and our school. I can think of no better gift for children than books; it was a wonderful gesture, if one that could have been better thought out. Books can be a powerful way to learn about and experience the world around us; they help build empathy and understanding. In return, I’m attaching a list of ten books (it’s the librarian in me) that I hope will offer you a window into the lives of the many children affected by the policies of your husband’s administration. You and your husband have a direct impact on these children’s lives. Please make time to learn about and value them. I hope you share these books with your family and with kids around the country. And I encourage you to reach out to your local librarian for more recommendations.

I've already post that. It seems that nobody here cares. Nobody cares to address her good points.

My life is great, I am not the one looking for perceived injustice everywhere and think the world is a horrible, racist, sexist, trans and homophobic place that is your lot.

I thought the loon implied it rather clearly.

Nope. You are seeing things that are not there.

Because when you act like a hypocritical douche people tend to ignore you.

Perhaps the problem is more the political bent of the letter. The school board discourages such. Rightfully so, perhaps, since she is a government employee.

It's a bit like that coach who was praying at football games.

What "good points" that closing paragraph was so condescending and snarky.

Yep. That's why Trump gets ignored a lot.
