It seems many are not happy with the forthcoming Trump inauguration speech. In fact, one teacher is determined to keep his students from hearing it.
His election to the Oval Office continues to stir controversy. Indeed, many already believe his presidency has ruined their lives.
Recently, many expressed anger when the Scandal season 6 premiere date moved in favor of a Donald Trump feature. Hence, threats from fans to hire papa Pope’s covert agency B613 to handle the delay.
Trump Inauguration Speech Not Good for Students?
Unrelated to the TGIT delay, Brett Meteyer raised concern for the upcoming Donald Trump inaugural speech, Fox News Insider reports. This time around, the fourth-grade teacher in Michigan took matters into his own hand.
Apparently, Meteyer showed previous speeches from two past presidential inaugurations to his classes. However, he refuses to show the Trump inauguration speech to his fourth graders today.
“Because I am concerned about my students and your children being exposed to language and behavior that is not in concert with the most conservative social and family values, I have decided to show the inauguration [of] Donald Trump this Friday, but we will not view Mr. Trump’s inauguration speech,” Meteyer wrote in an email addressed to parents.
“I showed the speeches of Presidents Obama and Bush in 2009 and 2005, respectively, but am anxious about showing Mr. Trump’s inaugural address, given his past inflammatory and degrading comments about minorities, women, and the disabled,” Meteyer added.
Meteyer Reached Out to Trump Transition Team
According to USA Today, Meteyer also made efforts to get in touch with the president-elects transition team. His purpose, to read the Trump inauguration speech transcript. Should they contact him, the teacher revealed he might reconsider the ban.
News of the teacher’s email came out during the three-hour morning show of radio personality Steve Gruber. As it turns out, Gruber’s children go to the same school where Meteyer teaches at Explorer Elementary in Williamston, Michigan.
In light of the issue, Gruber said he is hopeful the actions of Meteyer would give students a valuable lesson in the end. Trump’s inauguration happens later today, January 20.
