Teen Says Trump Banner Got Him Thrown Out of Virutal Class

Students continue to work virtually from home while COVID cases are still rising.

And one boy’s story has gone viral after his teacher makes a pretty bold demand over Zoom…

Virtual classes aren’t for everybody. But while coronavirus is still lurking, it’s the safest thing schools can do.

But believe it or not, we still are.

And even though numbers of infections are steadily dropping in many countries, the USA continues to be the worst affected.

It just doesn’t seem to be phasing people anymore.

Such as coughing, sneezing, and touching things with your bare hands.

Because even though they can’t protect a person fully from catching or spreading the virus, they lower that chance significantly.

The number of coronavirus cases continues to steadily rise.

And more and more lives are being put at risk because of this.

Using Zoom to teach virtually.

And one student, in particular, has come under fire for something you wouldn’t expect during class.

After refusing to take down his Trump banner during the online lesson.

Said that chemistry teacher Andrew Gilman gave him a warning after spotting the “Trump 2020, Keep America Great” sign placed directly in view of the camera.

“I was the only person in the class. He looked up but didn’t say anything. Then when he was taking attendance, he came to my name and there were at least 16 to 20 people on and he said, ‘Anthony, take the sign down right now, there is no room for politics in my classroom.’”  

“And then he goes, ‘If you’re not going to get up and take it down, I’m going to have to ask you to leave the class for today,’” Ribeiro continued. “I waved goodbye, and I was gone.”  

“I was actually shocked,” Tara Jost said. “I couldn’t believe that a teacher would ask my son to take down something that was in my home.”

“He was in agreement with me and said they were 100% wrong,” Jost said. “He said to leave it up.”

Ribeiro kept the banner up and in the next class with Gilman, he didn’t mention it.

His teacher Leslie Maryon-Larose asked him to take it down for being a distraction in class.

“I didn’t have the greatest grade in my eyes, and I thought it would make her grade me harder,” he said. “I respected that she was talking to me as a person and asked politely.”

“The student was not in violation of any general code of conduct or any policy specifically related to virtual learning,” the statement read. “We have worked with and are continuing to work with all involved parties to resolve the issue and move forward.”

Who wants an apology from the teacher for kicking him out.

And apparently became a “big Trump guy” after getting into politics while being stuck at home due to coronavirus.

“I hope it never happens again, no matter if it’s Trump or Biden, people have a right to express their opinion.” Keep scrolling for more…
