Students at various schools around the Fruited Plain were not allowed to watch the inauguration of (then) President-elect Donald Trump. According to Fox News, the principal of one such bastion of learning, Independence High School in Tennessee, told a student’s parent that “news happens every day in this country” and that they wouldn’t be “stopping class to watch the news.” Well, then. The student herself found that odd though, considering the fact that they watched the last two presidential inaugurations in the school.
Meanwhile, fourth grade students at Explorer Elementary School in Michigan were also prevented from experiencing the Big Event, due to a teacher’s concern over “Mr. Trump’s casual use of profanity.” The teacher stated that he would not want to expose the kids to language that “would not appear in G or PG-rated movies.”
What the hell does he think Trump was going to say at his swearing-in or in his inaugural address?
Justice Roberts: “Do you solemnly swear that you will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States…?”
President-elect Trump: “F**kin’ right, I do!”
Were we ever seriously in danger of Trump tweaking the 35 words from Article II, Section I, of the Constitution? Is it humanly possible to ad-lib them?
“I do solemnly swear- giggle- that I will f**&%! faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and will to the best of my bleepin’ ability, preserve, protect and defend the m***erf---$#g Constitution of the United States.” Now that would really be an oath of office!
No, the actual reason that these “educators” prevented their students from watching the inauguration is because their candidate lost. And because they could.
Of course, when their candidate wins, they tell the loser “So sorry! Just deal with it!” What would they have said if Hillary had won, and some schools/teachers didn’t let their charges watch her inauguration? I think we all know the answer to that question. They would’ve cried “sexism!” and “intolerance” and branded those responsible as “misogynists,” and “history haters.”
