    we could dump some of the toxic, tenured, college professors, who continue to indoctrinate young minds against America, and for lib/ socialist points of view, and who retaliate against any students who may have differing points of view.. So much for debates, and learning critical thinking..This teacher obviously was trying to bend the students’ opinions against one candidate he disliked: it is well- known modus operandi at schools and colleges, on radio and tv, and in movies, to trash and mock anyone with opposing views, today, and the results are all around us!

    I am a proud Trump supporter and could care less what was shown in the class. If it was against the rules, then slap his hands and move on. These parents need to get a freaking grip and not get their panties twisted every single time their feelings are hurt. For the love of God, suck it up princesses…

    if this guy is a history teacher why is he showing a video critical of a current presidential candidate? If he wants to go down the road that this was history in the making then where was the video critical of Hillary? Or that nut Bernie Sanders? The fact is this clown was trying to get his political agenda across to the kids which is not what he is getting paid to teach. good riddance

    Went to see Kathy Griffin last night at the Count Basie.

    According to her, when you’re on “Celebrity Apprentice” playing for a charity, when your charity wins the check is made out to the Trump Foundation and not the individual charity.

    She referenced the Joan Rivers win. Joan was a close personal friend of hers. She said Joan was playing for the charity, “Gods love, we deliver.” She was told to make the check out to Trump (and count on his largesse and not God’s love, I guess).

    Sounds about right for Trump. He’s always confused himself with the deity anyway.

    with talking about a Trump tv show and any apprentice charities: look into the millions and millions taken illegally from foreign governments, and, likely quid pro quo favors given to countless people by the two Clintons, in and out of their various campaigns and offices-over decades.. not to mention their phony “foundation: ” no one in recent history has gamed the system and been more personally blatantly enriched,than those two! Anybody else’d likely be in prison! For countless reasons, that woman should never set foot in the White House again, him either- and, by the way, she ought to give the drapes back, while she’s at it! Disgusting people, period!
