Brendan Stanton, a middle school teacher at P.G. Keithley Middle School in Tacoma, Washington is under fire after scolding a 10 year old student for saying he admires Trump.
Elsy Kusander’s 10 year old son replied to a question “Who is the one person you admire and why?”
He answered “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.”
This answer led teacher Brendan Stanton to boot Elsy’s son from the class and scold him for what he called an inappropriate answer.
Standon said “the example that was shared in the chat, which I went ahead and erased for us, was not appropriate right? Especially as that individual has created so much division and hatred between people and specifically spoken hatred to many different individuals, ok? Again, that individual has spoken hate to many individuals and I don’t think is an appropriate example for a role model that we should be admiring.”
Tucker Carlson commented on the viral incident, bringing it much more public attention.
