An 11-year-old’s story has been making the rounds on conservative media after she was told by her teacher that she couldn’t do a “hero” report on President Trump because of what he said about women.
She got a pretty cool surprise from the president in the mail:
My daughter Bella got the biggest surprise today in the mail!An envelope addressed to her from the White House!!!! She was so excited! Received a bunch of cool stuff and a letter from him!THANK YOU! @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @raficarone_21 pic.twitter.com/Y7DDXoOjwF— Valerie Moscato ✝️ (@valeracci) April 19, 2019
Well that’s neat.
Here’s her parents talking about what happened on Laura Ingraham’s program:
When sixth-graders at Samoset Middle School were assigned to pick a hero on whom they would write a report, 11-year-old Bella Moscato said her choice was a no-brainer.
“Donald Trump is my hero,” she says.
The 45th U.S. president has been Bella’s idol since she was 8 years old, which is why she dressed up as Trump for a third-grade class project. But Bella says when she told her sixth-grade teacher that Trump was her choice for the hero project, the teacher nixed the idea.
Bella says her teacher said Trump “spreads negativity and says bad stuff about women” in front of another teacher and students in the class. The teacher told her to pick another hero.
Bella’s mother, Valerie Moscato, says she was outraged when her daughter called her from school about the incident. She says what the teacher did amounts to intimidation and censorship.
Arthur Moscato, the girl’s father, says he can’t believe someone would tell his daughter that the current U.S. president cannot be her hero.
This actually DOES fit the definition of censorship, for once, right? I mean, a school is supposed to have standards for what they teach, it’s called a curriculum. BUT, the teacher clearly made this choice based on her political opinion, not based on a curriculum.
It is not accurate that this student was told that they were not allowed to conduct research or report on any individual for a school assignment, including President Trump. To the best of our knowledge, by choice the student is still conducting their project of President Trump.
Whether it happened or not, I don’t know. But it’s definitely believable. Especially when liberals defended Bill Clinton for decades, and then ALL OF SUDDEN they discover that men shouldn’t use their official standing to take advantage of women. Weird!
