SOTU prop, girl who got scholarship, was already at "sought-after" Philly charter school

Trump used Philly girl’s story to attack ‘failing government schools.’ But she’s at one of the city’s most desired charters.

President Donald Trump turned a Philadelphia fourth grader into a poster child for the school-choice movement Tuesday when he told the nation that thousands of students were “trapped in failing government schools" and announced that the girl was at last getting a scholarship to attend the school of her choice.

But Janiyah Davis already attends one of the city’s most sought-after charter schools, The Inquirer has learned. In September, months before she was an honored guest at Trump’s State of the Union address, she entered Math, Science and Technology Community Charter School III.

...

Davis, who along with Janiyah flew home to Philadelphia on Air Force Two this week, said she supports Trump’s push for school choice, but is “not sure” about the rest of the president’s positions.

For Janiyah, the speech was “a wonderful experience," Davis said. She said her daughter has been “nonchalant about it. … I know she’s happy. I still feel like she’s trying to process it all.”.



Pathetic vermin (in the WH) abusing the trust of a little kid like that.

1. No wonder they looked like they didn't quite get it at first.

3. In other words...

Absolutely everything Trump said at the SOTU was a lie.
