Parents Slammed After Sharing Photos of Kids Wearing Shirts With Expletives Against President

This past weekend, many Americans were getting an early jump on celebrating Independence Day, but others spent 'America's Birthday' protesting President Donald Trump's policies. One parent in Colorado attended a rally to protest the separation of families at the border. While many might agree with her regarding the immigration issue, others were shocked to see what her children wore to the event.

Destinee Dawn Starr posted a photo of her daughters and another girl on Facebook. The photo was taken at the 'Denver Families Belong Together' rally. The rally was organized to urge action after a large number of immigrant children were separated from their parents under President Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy. The president has reversed his policy and has signed an executive order that would require border patrol to give families special consideration and keep minors with their parents. However, a number of children are still being held in chain-link enclosures, waiting to be reunited with parents. The government won’t release the exact number, but it is estimated to be in the thousands.

Starr captioned the photo of the girls, "Denver’s youth with ALL the style and major cuteness to boot.”

Two of the girls in the photo were wearing t-shirts with a red, white and blue design, and a slogan that read "F--k Trump."

Starr was slammed with negative reactions after posting the photo.

“This is what we are up against. They think this is cute. I say this is a form of child abuse," read one comment.

“Wow. We didn’t care for Obama, but we would never use our children to deface the POTUS. They have no moral class," read another.

Some people called for child services to investigate the family and arrest the parents for child abuse.

“Whoever these kids belong to, they should be arrested and the kids turned over to Social Services! You don’t involve your kids in adult matters.”

“I don’t care what your political affiliation is nor what your personal feelings about our President may be. No parent should do this to their children," said Sid Miller, the commissioner of agriculture in Texas, who shared the photo on Facebook.
One person says that the photo looks like the t-shirts were photoshopped. There has been no confirmation on that, however Starr has taken the photo down and shut down her Facebook page.

The t-shirts do exist, however. A number of ‘F—k Trump’ novelty t-shirts can be found these days. One man in Texas was recently thrown out of a restaurant for wearing a t-shirt that read, “F—k Trump, and f--k you for voting for him'. The back of the shirt read, 'F--k the racist alt-right'. The restaurant said the decision to turn the man and his family away had nothing to do with politics, but that people in the restaurant were offended by the explicit language on the shirt for fear of their children reading it.

When the man left, a waiter followed him out to the parking lot to say he quit on the spot over the injustice. He claims people would frequently come in and request not to be seated near Muslims.
