It’s been over two years since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton. And to this day, there are some who just cannot stand it. Trump derangement syndrome is not just a fun swipe at liberals who just cannot deal with the current administration. It’s been documented before and now we have another example at a Virginia high school, where a teacher was caught roping a Trump flag around a student’s neck. The school district is looking into the matter. The incident occurred at Tabb High School in Yorktown, Virginia. The adult in question has been identified as Mrs. Brinkley. New Virginia Press and 13 News Now have the story:

A teacher’s assistant has been caught on camera wrapping a Trump flag around a student’s head in York County, Virginia.

The video shows a growing trend among educators to take physical or administrative action against students who show support for President Trump.

The teacher was identified as a para-educator, and the video clearly shows her wrapping a “Trump 2020” flag around the student as classmates jeer.


Classmates claimed the teacher had previously attempted to take the student’s phone, but the footage was captured by another student across the room.

Yeah, you can’t do that, lady. The school district released the following statement (via Newsweek):

The York County School Division is aware of the video being circulated on social media depicting an interaction between a para-educator and a student at Tabb High School. We take this matter seriously, as we do all concerns brought to our attention.

The York County School Division believes every student is entitled to a safe and welcoming school environment. School Board policy also recognizes that school time and school property should not be used for any political purposes. Employees are expected to refrain from engaging in any activity supporting or opposing a candidate or political party while on duty, while on school property during school hours, or while representing the school division.

As such, we would like to assure our community that school and division administrators are continuing to review this personnel matter in accordance with division policies and procedures.
