Middle school fires history teacher who told her students Trump is ‘still president’

A history teacher in Ventura, California, has been removed from her job after she told her students that Donald Trump is still president, according to reports.

“Hunter Biden, for example, is doing deals with China and Ukraine where he was funneling money illegally. He also had child pornography on his laptop. He was having sexual intercourse with his own niece,” the teacher, who worked for Anacapa Middle School, said in recording, according to CBS New York.

“If you have a baby in the hospital, they don’t want to give it back if you’re not vaccinated,” the teacher, who has not been identified, said on the recording. “This is a complete power control threat.”

The teacher is still employed by the Ventura Unified School District, which oversees the school she was employed at.

From Business Insider:

An eighth-grade student told his mother after class with the history teacher that he’d never be vaccinated against the coronavirus, CBS New York reported. Then he asked her if she knew that Trump was still president of the United States.

“I mean, why? Why does that need to be said in this classroom full of children,” the mother asked, according to CBS New York. “I trusted her to teach him the facts about history and she went off on this rant like a preacher on a pulpit.”

In a statement to Insider, a district spokesperson said the school launched an investigation into the incident after receiving the recording of the teacher on October 18.

Spokesperson Quiroz told Insider the district “does not condone the non-instructionally related discussion” in the classroom.

The student’s father questioned what the eighth-grader learned in school, and the son said he believed his teacher. “When he first got in the car and said, ‘Dad, teachers know everything. She’s right, dad. You’re wrong.’ He’s damaged. He’s hurt. He’s scared. He doesn’t trust his parents now. He thinks we lied to him,” the mom told CBS New York.
