The morning after the world learned President Donald Trump contracted the coronavirus, a Seattle-area teacher went on a rant about the president to sixth graders. When a mom complained, he misled her about what happened. Luckily, the mom recorded the incident on her cell phone.
Brendan Stanton, a middle school teacher at P.G. Keithley Middle School in Tacoma (in the Franklin Pierce School District), asked students who they admired and why. One student answered President Trump. That triggered Stanton.
Not only did the teacher boot the student from the chat, he proceeded to scold the child for his “inappropriate” answer.
Elsy Kusander’s 10 year-old son logged into his remote classes for another day of online learning on Friday, Oct. 2. Little did he know he’d be scolded for his support for Trump.
Each day, Stanton asks his students a daily question. This time he asked students, “Who is the one person you admire and why?” Students are asked to write their answers in the online chatroom. According to a screenshot, Kusander’s son wrote:
“I admire Donald J. Trump because he is making America great again. And because he is the best president the United States of America could ever, ever have. And he built the wall so terrorists couldn’t come into in the U.S. Trump is the best person in the world. And that’s why I had admire him.”
